Invite Belly Bands/Sashes, opinions please!

Okay after the drama over the engraved or no, I decided to keep my computer printed invitations but change one thing - the belly band. I'm ordering Italian paper and can't decide. I want things to be lace like so there are some lace paper options and I also like the colors navy/peach/lavender/plum Which do you like the best?


Here is the original invitation, its matte stark white:







Here are the options:


1 matte soft white


2 matte stark white


3 pearlized ivory


4 Japanese Hemp, white


5 Florentine Orchard

6 Florentine Blue Grapes


7 lastly, marbles

I like 2, 4, and 6! Of these, I would probably pick 6 for the color and contrast.

So I love the patterns on 3 but the paper colorwise is so similar since you are doing italian paper I think 6 really says italian paper to me. It depends what your theme is.

I guess for "theme" we've (well I) have been using a lot of lace, eyelet features. I also love 6 but it has teal, which doesn't really contrast very nicely with my colors I think... Bah I don't know.
Oh and I guess there is always just one more option - leave things the way they are haha

There are too many options ladies and I love them all! I'm so bad at making up my mind about these things!!

If you want color, I say A, it goes the best with your color scheme. Otherwise I still like 3 because it will give a subtle contrast to your invites that is simple and elegant.

Thanks ladies, I'm ordering #3 and this one to see which looks better, bright contrast or subtle contrast, we'll see! And I'm ordering the marbled paper for the inside cover of the second guest book I've decided to use... I love the more traditional Florentine prints but I just don't think any of them fit quite right, although they are just beautiful!! I don't think I could plan a wedding without you ladies!


This is the other one, apart from #3, that I'm ordering. Its technically a "modern chinoiserie" but I think it will go with the flowers and such
We'll see what looks best of the two - I'll post the samples when thy arrive!!
