    The hierarchy of text in this picture is outstanding.

    3. These flowers are subtle enough that they don't distract from the couple's names, but just add to the overall design.

    11. If you've got a lot of information about your wedding, don't feel pressure to put it all on the front.

    After all, your designer probably spent a good amount of time on it.

    14. Not every illustrated invite must contain flowers!

    This is a great example of another way to incorporate artistry into your stationery.

    15. Great calligraphy is the key to a simple yet elegant invitation.

    The thick, watercolored vine really balances perfectly with the thin weight of the font.

    16. Sometimes using less color can be just as striking.

    All of these illustrative fonts work so well together. Try experimenting!

    17. Here's an invite that breaks all the rules.

    You don't always need aligned text or perfect spacing.

    18. Don't be afraid to try crazy colors or unique sizes.

    That neon ink is pretty unforgettable.

    19. An easy way to keep your aesthetic consistent is by keeping one element the same within all the pieces.
