Truth be told, we weren't in love with the royal wedding invitation. So we asked top stationery designers from around the country to dream up some more luxurious designs—feel free to steal inspiration for your own grand affair.

This clean and elegant invite suite features gold foil printed onto letterpress parchment; the combination of italic type and small caps lends a modern feel. Invitation design by Dauphine Press Photo: Courtesy of Dauphine Press
