Contemporary Invitations - BACKGROUND

Contemporary wedding invitations are elegant and sophisticated invitations that utilize unusual decorative or embossed papers, and may employ overlays, and/or layering. Often, these invitations will include accessories such as bows, ribbons, or flowers to create a special new look. Frequently, the layout differs from the standard centered text found in traditional invitations.

Decorative motifs (designs), metallic clasps, unusual colors, mixed or less formal fonts all these are possible with contemporary invitations.

Sometimes contemporary invitations are very informal with fonts that resemble handwriting, with theme designs (western, storybook characters, beach illustrations), with brightly colored papers - the effect of which is to let your guests know that the wedding will be innovative and different
