One of the hallmarks of a wedding is the wedding invitation. It allows invitees to gage what to expect for the ceremony and reception. Will new trends be infused, or is the couple leaning toward more traditional elements?
Today, the first pictures of Prince William and Kate’s invitations were released, which have been sent to 1900 guests. As a result of their royal status and the spectacular venue (the ceremony is being held at Westminster Abbey), I was expecting to see a much grander invitation. After all, one would imagine that an invitation from the Queen would be remarkable. However, I think I’m suffering from invitation design letdown. I understand that the invitations must remain formal; however, there are so many interesting formal invitation designs today. I was hoping theirs would be a bit more exciting.
Take a look at the invitation below. What do you think? Is the royal wedding invitation boring or as beautiful as you imagined?
