A Second Invitation Inspiration Winner

Two Thursdays ago, you started voting for your favorite wedding invitation from a selection of three fabulous designs {seen here}. The invitation that received the most votes was promised to be the inspiration for a special wedding post. The votes were counted, and a tie was announced last Thursday. Due to the tie, both winning invitations won a special post. Last week, you saw the inspiration for Invitation #1 {check it out here}. This week, you will see the other winner, Invitation #3, in a wedding post inspired by its navy blue and creamy tulle beauty. This elegant invitation designed by Vera Wang is available at FineStationery.com.
