You Voted... Here's Your Wedding Inspiration!

Since last Thursday, you’ve been voting for your favorite invitation from a selection of three fabulous designs {seen here}. The invitation that received the most votes was promised to be the inspiration for today’s wedding post. The votes are in, have been counted, and… we have a tie for first place! Invitation 1 and Invitation 3 each received nine reader votes. Thank you all for participating! Due to the tie, you will be treated to two wedding posts, inspired by these great invitations!

Today’s post is inspired by Invitation 1, which is a fun black bordered kate spade invitation with tiny white polka dots, a thin gold border, and a bright green envelope liner.

Invitation 1 Inspiration

  • Bridesmaids will look chic in a bright green dress, and can dance the night away in a pair of cute black and white polka-dotted heels -- Dress by J.Crew and shoes by kate spade

  • The bride will look beautiful when twirling around the dance floor in a tea-length polka-dotted dress -- Michelle Roth

  • Fresh white tulips with bright greens wrapped in a black and white polka-dotted ribbon will look so sharp as the bridal bouquet -- Brides

  • Dress the reception table with bold place settings in black, white and gold. You can incorporate the polka dot theme with your linens -- Brides

  • A candy display is always a hit for guests! Choose assorted candies in bright green colors to make a statement -- Amy Atlas Events

  • The groom will look smashing in a tailored black tuxedo and a gold bow tie. Add a polka-dotted scarf to his pocket for flair -- Brides

  • Pull the gold border from the invitation to use as design inspiration for your wedding cake -- The Knot
