It's easy to go over-the-top floral with a vintage invite, but these elegant options are practically perfect in every way. Below, letterpress is one of the most beautiful ways to go simple. It adds texture, sophistication, and grace without a lot of color or graphics. This gray on ivory with a sage envelope hints at a refined vintage wedding that a guest couldn't possibly decline.

If you really love the idea of simple design, but don't want to abandon illustration altogether, stick with something discreet and light, like these two leafy branches wrapping around the bottom of the text (below).

Rustic weddings are really the easiest to blend in simplicity, as it is naturally more of a no-frills theme. These long Kraft paper invites (below) have just enough decoration with the cursive script font and miniscule leaf icons.
