Deciding on a wedding card design can be a daunting task. Select invitations that reflect the tone of your event, as well as your tastes as a couple. For instance, use simple and elegant card design ideas for formal or evening events, and more vibrant designs for an afternoon or beach wedding.

Monogram

Incorporate a monogram in your wedding card design. Monograms are classic and elegant. Interlink your initials on a plain background for a modern invitation. Select a font in one of your wedding colours for the initials. Add a matching monogram stamp or seal to the back of each envelope.

Beach

If you are planning a beach or destination wedding, select wedding invitation designs to match. Keep it simple and elegant. Skip the white or ivory background--use soft green or sea blue for your wedding cards. Order invitations with letterpress designs, which are raised. Include such designs as seashells, starfish or seahorses for a beach wedding. Select wedding invitation designs with pineapples, palm trees or coconuts for a fun, casual destination wedding.

Damask

Choose a wedding card design with a damask pattern. While the traditional pattern includes a white background with a black damask design, you can select a design in your wedding colours. For instance, design an invite with a black damask design printed on top of a light blue background. Use this design sparingly if your cards have plenty of text--keep the damask pattern confined to the invitation's borders. Select a 1- or 2-inch pattern to frame your wedding invitations.
