Here are a few more tips and ideas from Ceci New York!

Another style is the pocket folder - instead of a book with many pages, you just have a cover that opens and presents your invitation - all your necessary info cards are held neatly off to the side in the pocket. Everything is organized perfectly for your guests. Take it a step further and add something different than paper - I had these hand sewn envelopes out of canvas material to create an unexpected detail for the envelopes. I tied them with a lovely cluster of real sea shells and a tag personalized with each guest names - it's all about the details!
If a book or a folding piece is too much for you, and you prefer a flat invitation - dress it up with all it's wrappings like below. Send your invite in something spectacular and unexpected...
Thank you so much to Lisa Hoffman of Ceci New York for this incredible guest blog!
I have to say, for me, Lisa just might be the most inspiring person in this industry. I typically scour her site once or twice a week to see if she's added any new work and am continually floored by her insanely creative visions and perfectly executed invitations. Even if Lisa's work is out of your price range, you will ABSOLUTELY, unequivocally be completely inspired by her designs...from her gorgeous color palettes to her innovative approaches with each piece that she craft. Everything she does is total eye candy for any bride!
