While it’s important to make sure you’ve said yes to the right dress, it’s just as important to have stationery that reflects your wedding aesthetic. After all, your invitation is the first glimpse your guests get into your wedding style.

If you’re going for a clean, minimal look for your nuptials, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite elegant yet pared-down invitations. These designs emphasize simple text and language, modern typography, and the use of negative space and really prove that sometimes, less is more.
