Invitations for your wedding
With so much preparation and thought going into so many aspects of your wedding, sometimes something seemingly as simple as your invitations can be rushed or overlooked. These days there are so many different types of invitations to choose from, the question is… where to start?? As always, we are here to help you go back to basics and guide you through the many options….
Invitations are really important as they announce and set the tone of your wedding. It is always important to keep your style and personality within your theme for your big day, and this also needs to be reflected in your invitations. If you do not have a theme as yet, it is ok, you can stick to your main colour choices, bridesmaid’s dresses… or even the decorations you choose, and it will look fabulous.
If you feel more creative, why not try doing a DIY session at home with (or without) your other half? Whilst we are not all blessed with an artistic hand, it can be far easier to leave this important task to a professional.
The objective is to make your guests excited when they see your invite. Usually, people do not keep invitations very long, but they are going to keep yours as they will not be able to throw such beauty away.
Your invitation should be as unique as your big day, here are some ideas that you can use to transform your invitation ideas into a piece of art.
1. Create your own style
As your wedding day is going to be mesmerising, you can give your guests a taste with a creative and different type of invitation. Think about a Perspex plaque engraved with your names on it, an amazing keepsake in a beautiful envelope sealed with wax, nobody would want to get rid of it. You can also opt for something funnier like a puzzle or even send your invite as a riddle. If you decide on a destination wedding, you have an option of sending your invite as a passport which is in keeping with the theme.
2. Pick a modern template
If you are someone who likes to follow the latest trends, here are some very fashionable invites that will perfectly suit your modern classy chic wedding.
3. Choose a floral design
Adding a refined touch to your wedding with flowers.
If you want a touch of colour to your wedding invites do not hesitate to put flowers on it, it is a safe bet and always works and the results are beautiful.
4. Keep it classic
The classic invitation is back on the table and very fashionable. The minimalist style is the best way to combine soberness and elegance. The key is in the subtility and the beauty of the details.
5. Opt for the traditional theme
A timeless kind of invite which is basic and gets straight to the point is always the safe way to go if you are not keen on giving away any colour scheme or theme of your wedding in advance.
Always save the date!
Many couples are deciding to plan their wedding up to two years in advance, this is when a save the date card comes in handy. It’s similar to an invitation but doesn’t hold any information other than your chosen wedding date. This then gives you time to plan your dream wedding knowing all of your loved ones have been notified and can be sure to make it on your special day.
And remember, the best thing about an invitation is you can put a bit of your personality in it, as you do for your wedding itself, that will make the invite more personal, and your guests will recognise your style within. Above all, you should really enjoy creating and searching for inspiration for your invitations and build the excitement, keep it a pleasure planning your wedding, never a chore!
