'Pièce de résistance!'

"They say invitations typically set the tone for the wedding, but your work was truly the pièce de résistance! I could not have found anyone with a better eye for detail than you. When we initially discussed the color of the invitation, you knew exactly what you were going to use in terms of ink, the end result was perfection. My guests have not tossed away their envelopes because most say they've never seen their names written so beautifully. Thank you for truly setting the tone for an incredible affair."
