Invitation Inspiration: Traditional

Do you guys know what my favorite posts are to read? Maybe food or recaps? Possibly how to include your dog in your wedding? Nope, nope, and nope. See, those are all great kinds of posts, and I do enjoy reading them, but my absolutely favorite posts are invitation inspiration ones.

I know, I know, there have been a ton of theses by very smarty and awesome bees, but I cannot wait to share ever more with you. I am so excited that I definitely have more than one post, but you'll just have to wait for the rest.

Today, I'm sharing traditional invitation ideas with you. This is definitely more of Mr. G's style and I think he wants us to lean this way. I mean, I suppose it makes sense; by all accounts we're having a traditional wedding. I don't know, though, but I feel like traditionally styled invitations have kind of a bad rep (at least they did in my mind). I mean, if they don't have all the fancy glitter, embossing, and laser cuts, aren't they just boring? Seriously? Or if nt boring, aren't they just like some super cheesy old-school type of thing your mom and dad used in the 60s?

Well yes... for some, I suppose, but I'm here to share some traditional invites with you that are just as lovely and beautifully as there hip and cool and/or pop and fresh counterparts.

Okay, so are they pop and fresh? Not necessarily, but I still think they're pretty and I can appreciate the beauty of their simplicity. The fourth one down is one Mr. G would really be in to, and I don't think it's all that bad. I mean, it might not have a metallic belly band, but it really is quite lovely and elegant.

Here's a few more to sway you to the traditional side. (source for the next 4 images)

So what do you think, Hive? Did you send traditional invitations (and do you pllllllease have photos to share with me)? If you were a Giraffe guest, would you be disappointed if you received a traditional styled invite?
