Don’t go fancy on the invites. After all, the modern art says the letters can do it all. Typography is a powerful thing nowadays. Keep them hanging and keep them interested by providing the only needed details on your invites. Save some space. Let the letter breathe.
The Table Setting
The reception is better off with hues limited to 2 to 3. For a clean look, you can go with white, grey and some crystal clears. Have only the needed utensils on top of the tables and nothing more.
