If your wedding is completely formal, or if you just like the idea of having invitations that boast of formality, engraved invitations will match your requirements perfectly. The embossed lettering gives your invitations the touch of elegance that you seek, and speaks of many weddings as these are the style of invitations that your mother and grandmother is likely to have used. Though lacking in scenes such as flowers, beaches, and the like, these traditional, embossed wedding invitations speak of centuries of weddings and happy couples.
Your choice to use this decades old invitation style speaks of your traditional sense of formality. If your wedding is traditional and formal, embossed invitations fit right in with your plans. The beautiful lettering combined with the formality of the wording make engraved wedding invitations the perfect choice for the bride who has her heart set on a wedding packed full of tradition. Even you don't plan on a completely formal and traditional wedding, engraved invitations add beauty and elegance to your invitations, and the recipients will find them quite appealing.
The lack of designs such as flowers on engraved invitations make them easier to coordinate with many different wedding themes and color choices. Many of the embossed invitations are in white, taupe, or buff colors, so it removes the worry about coordinating the color of the invitations to the rest of the color scheme of the wedding. Though lacking in a tirade of color and pictorial combinations, these elegantly embossed invitations make up for their lack of color in their abundance of traditionalism and elegance.
If you're not sure what kind of wording to use, you will find that some of the engraved invitations come with their own verses that are not changeable, so you don't even have to concern yourself with that problem. For those who want to write their own verses, you are able to do that as well with most of the selections.
There is no limit to what you can do with the wording to make it say what you want to say, but on the other hand, using more traditional verses and wording has an advantage as well. Some people aren't very good with words, so having verses available can be a stress reliever. After all, you have enough on your mind with all of the wedding plans; you don’t want to have to worry about how to phrase the information on your invitations or what kind of verse to include.
