On Offbeat Bride, we've shown you samples of geeky invitations, Halloween invitations, science-y invitations, hand-drawn invitations, and you know we've shown you a million different shades of DIY invitations.

But what if you don't have a clue what flavor you want yet? I've gathered about 21 of my favorites from across the spectrum from our wedding invitations archives so you can see just a bit of what's out there!
