I am pinning this invite only because I like the idea of using a textured die-cut of some kind. Depending on the card colour it could look great in black... maybe black on black with a bit of the school blue.

I prefer the black portion of this design. A very simple execution using a logo type and sparse simple type. It has a personal welcoming style which removes some of the grander of the event.

Simple, classic design that is easily executed. I also like the whimsical & traditional school theme

I do not like this particular application but it is a rebound from one of your pins. I rather like the idea of making the invite have a little wow factor... possibly creating custom mini champagne bottle labels.

These mini champagne bottle labels spotted at FlairDesigneryLLC are party-ready and perfect for your wedding reception. Just print 'em, stick 'em, and enjoy!

This invite has an elegant & high quality feel. Depending on production it could be expensive/time consuming to create. A less intricate version may be an option. For our purposes, toning down the feminine feel may also add to it.
