Royal Wedding Invitation Do Over


I know you're probably sick of hearing about this royal wedding business -- so am I. However, I needed to discuss something that has been haunting me for some time. Kate and William's foul wedding invitation. I, as I'm sure most other graphic designers worldwide were, am disgusted by their plain Jane approach. I mean, is it even letterpressed? Foil stamped? Nothing about it screams, "hey, I'm about to be a princess and I'm BOSS."

Here are some options I would have hoped popped up in royal mailboxes for the formal occasion:

DEVERIL

GRACELYN VINTAGE

CALLIGRAPHY MONOGRAM

SABION

BURSTEL

And because it's really precious (and I'm jealous that I won't be throwing a party at 4:00 am on a Friday) this royal wedding watching party from Romeo + Jules is tickling my fancy pants.

ROMEO + JULES

So, what do you say? Are you as equally insulted with their invitation choice?

  1. Hmmm... The one they opted for is very boring. If anything it screams 'Don't read me.', to the point where one might throw it away if you were to not read the actual contents lol

    Horribly corporate design, where they could have gotten very creative.
