Today’s round-up is all about the classic style. Whether you enjoy the simple and understated or just have a love for the timeless look, navy is the way to go. Because the dress I’ve chosen is more simplified, I’ve pumped up the volume on the accessories, mixing metals and combining pewter with gold. Here’s hoping you get inspired by the timelessness of navy. Enjoy!

This [Split] Personality showcases the versatility of the Nicolette wedding invitation. This pairing finds the contrast between an elegant, formal look and the more rustic, casual side with just the right use of color. This invitation is simple and yet classic in style and because it is available in both thermography and digitally printed versions, it lends itself well to both styles.
In this first example, I’ve chosen to use black on white paper throughout the entire suite to show how this traditional color can be used for a sleek and elegant wedding.
In the second example, this wedding invitation can be used in deep, earthy hues which would work well with a more casual wedding theme.
So, which one suits your style most? Leave us a comment to let us know!
