Invitation Help

Argg.....I have been looking for invitations for months and there are endless possibilities!  I can't seem to choose.

I think part of it is planning the destination wedding is making it hard for me to find my "theme" ... we are having the ceremony at VOTF and the cocktail receiption at the House of Blues Foundation Room Patio. 

I like simple, modern style invitations but I  just can't seem to find one that fits what I'm looking for...any suggestions?  Our colors are bright (royal) blue and black. 
Its funny this has been the hardest thing so far in the planning process, which I thought would be one of hte easier things.  Undecided

    I had the same problem - invitations ended up being the biggest thing to stress me out so far.After a  SNAFU with an Etsy designer, I ended up designing them myself. Where have you looked?

    I am having a similar wedding and cocktail reception. I found mine on www.weddingpaperdivas.com

    Tons of modern ones as well as color choices. I ordered Elegant Poppies in Hot pink and black and am planning on gluing tiny crystals on the flowers on the invitations to glam them up a bit. I ordered my save the dates from them and have been very happy so far. Good luck!

    I did several google searches until I found something I liked.  Then basically used that as my inspiration to design my own... Have you done any searches and found something you love?  Even if you don't make your own at least you'll have an idea and can hopefully find someone to do it for you.  Good luck!

    I got my STDS, and am getting my invites, from Ginger P Designs on etsy.  I'm a VOTF bride too (reception in the Palm Foyer at MB) and she's got some nice, modern designs, if you're interested in browsing.  All of the colors/fonts etc are fully customizable so she can match your colors exactly:

    Thank you for the suggestions I will check them out and hopefully make a decision already! Our STDs were neutral vintage looking Vegas sign magnets.

    Thanks but there isn't a party city where I live, the closest is an hour away. =(

    I have been working with Jen Strunk to do custom invites, and she's fantastic and cost effective. My invites will end up being slightly cheaper for something custom made over something I would just order somewhere.
