Charming, rustic weddings are a popular theme among brides, but let’s not forget about sophisticated, urban nuptials! Urban weddings are loved for their elegance, breathtaking skyline backdrops and gorgeous venues like urban rooftops and luxurious penthouses. Your invites should be just as trendy as your big day, so consider any of these beautiful top wedding invitations:

DawnBlogTop5_UrbanInvitations

1. Simply Dashing – Seal and Send
This dapper invite features an elegant art deco-inspired font, and your wording is surrounded by a stitched denim frame. A bow tie in a color of your choice provides a finishing touch at the bottom of your stationery. Guests can read over your wedding details, fill out the attached response card and send it off in the mail for a convenient way to RSVP to your event.

2. Geo Glow – Real Glitter
Vibrant colors and a geometric pattern dress up the top of your stationery to grab the attention of your guests. And to make the pattern even more stunning, it’s adorned with real glitter – and who doesn’t enjoy a little bit of sparkle and shine? The pattern coordinates perfectly with the modern, urban theme of your wedding day. The pretty script below features your names and all of the exciting wedding details. The back of your invite is filled with the same geometric glitter pattern.

3. Trendy Details – Invitation
I love this invitation because of the way it reads like a newspaper. It includes so much more than your wedding details. You and your future spouse get to share the story of how you both met, and how your relationship progressed to an eventual proposal. This fun invitation gives your guests an inside look at your relationship. You can choose between a number of hues for your wording to coordinate with your color palette.

4. Two Grooms – Invitation
The wording at the top of this invitation puts it perfectly: Two grooms are better than one! The front of the invite shares all of the important information about your big day, while the back shows off a lovely picture of you and your future husband.

5. Las Vegas Skyline – Seal and Send Invitation
Are you tying the knot in Sin City? Las Vegas provides a stunning skyline view for your nuptials, much like this send and seal invitation. The top of the stationery shows off a stunning colored silhouette of Las Vegas, and your wording elegantly follows below. The minute your guests receive these invites, they’ll immediately know where to book their flight to!
