Designer Monique Lhuillier has launched a line of wedding invitations that are just as beautiful as her wedding dresses. Featuring her signature satin ribbons and bows, the Monique Lhuillier Fine Paper Collection is designed for, in Monique's words, "the bride who wants classic, elegant wedding invitations with a modern twist." I love this romantic invitation—the metallic border adds a hint of opulence to the luxurious paper. Purchase invitations at myjeanm.com and check for photographs of her complete collection online soon at moniquelhuillier.com. —Kathryn Papanek
Wedding Wisdom: Your invitation sets the tone for the wedding and gives guests a hint of what to expect at the celebration. Be sure to think carefully when determining style and wording. A traditional engraved invitation suggests that your guests should dress formally, while an informal invitation indicates casual dress.
