Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sent out 600 wedding invitations for their ceremony at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, in May, choosing to stick with a formal, minimalist design. The invitations were designed by London-based firm Barnard & Westwood—the same firm that designed the royal wedding invitations for Will and Kate in 2011—and feature dark, scripted writing on a thick card with gilded edges. While a formal invitation design wasn’t unexpected, the royal family did get a little more tech savvy for the upcoming nuptials: Guests were asked to R.S.V.P. via email.
Event invitation designers from across the U.S. recently gave us their input on the aesthetic of the royal wedding invitations. Stationery company Alpine Creative Group told us they wouldn’t change anything about the invitations, but other designers showed us what they would have done differently.
