Hi again! I’m back with a few more favorite wedding invitations to share with you! I’ve had the pleasure of featuring more than 490 wedding invitations on Oh So Beautiful Paper, so I could go on and on with examples of my favorite invitations over the years. But there are two types of invitation design styles that will forever have a special place in my heart: calligraphy wedding invitations and travel-inspired wedding invitations!
There really is just nothing more beautiful than letterpress printed calligraphy, particularly in such a classic color palette! I love the combination of the modern calligraphy style by Betsy Dunlap with a traditional serif typeface. And the floral backing on the invitation.

These invitations lean a bit more towards hand lettering, but they’re still unbelievably beautiful! I just love every single detail, from the sunny yellow and gray color palette to the fun pattern and silhouette details.

I love, love, love a good travel-inspired wedding invitation, and I love the attention to detail in these destination invitations for a wedding in Rome. Beautiful calligraphy, a map envelope liner, vintage stamps, and twine in the colors of airmail. They even incorporated a photo of the ubiquitous Italian Fiat!

These invitations are travel-inspired, but with a twist! The invitation was hand lettered and printed on the back of an oversize map, then folded to hold the accompanying pieces like a neon pink mad lib RSVP card and an accommodations card enclosed in a teeny envelope. A wax seal was the perfect finishing touch!
