Purple and Black Damask Wedding Invitations and an Elegant Maryland Wedding with Purple Accents

Today's real wedding of Katie and Josh featured deep shades of purple as a lovely accent within her bridal bouquet, the bridesmaids dresses, reception napkins and cake florals. The cake itself featured a damask design which led me to today's first feature of purple and black wedding invitations that feature the damask pattern. I always find the damask pattern to be super elegant and if you can find paper with the damask pattern in flocking you are sure to have an eye-catching invitation design. Combine that with a satin ribbon and you create a super "wow" effect for your guests to open.

Isn't the photo below gorgeous? For some reason it reminds me of inside the Titanic.
