Do you find yourself overwhelmed with the many wedding invitation options available during your internet searches? Do you wish someone would break it down the invitation details for you? Good news, brides-to-be – that’s just what we’re going to do for you on today’s blog!

Below are a few of the most popular wedding invitation formats and styles we see our custom stationery design clients select during the design process. While these are not all the options available to you (the options really are endless), we find these to be the front runners when it comes to wedding invitation popularity…


  1. The Flat Panel Wedding Invitation Card

    The flat panel invitation card is simply that – a one-sided, single layer card. It’s main focus is on the fonts and printed design itself. It is typically paired with a response card and response envelope, a details card, and a mailing envelope. Should you opt to dress up this wedding invitation suite a bit more, there are some lovely options you might consider: a belly band to wrap around the stacked invitation pieces, a lovely liner inside the mailing envelope, or you might even consider splurging for an upgraded print method (letterpress, thermography, or foil stamping, just to name a few).

  2. The Pocketfold Wedding Invitation

    This one is a popular selection for our Indianapolis brides who are looking for something to reflect their classic and more formal wedding style. This is an especially fitting invitation format for weddings that feature a plated meal, as well as if you’re requesting specific guest attire. This wedding invitation style also comes in handy for the couples who need to provide guests with lots of wedding weekend details, as it provides a handy pocket for multiple details cards to be included. To add to this elegant wedding invitation card, you can dress up the exterior with a layered closure tag or even a custom wax seal!

  3. The Laser Cut Wedding Invitation

    This particular wedding invitation style has become increasingly popular over the last few years. Custom laser cut details add another level of elegance and sophistication to wedding invitations, unmatched by any other printing or design methods. Whether the laser cut details on your wedding invitation are minimal or elaborate will determine how pricey this option can be. For many laser cut designs, you would be surprised how budget friendly a laser cut wedding invitation can be!

Wondering what life is like for a busy mom with a graphic design & laser cutting business? My days are filled with pretty paper, blissful brides, half-finished sketchbooks, half-eaten lunches, and lots of cuddling with my little ones. I look forward to sharing with you all of life's fun happenings (both in & out of the studio) here on the blog!
