Before we started planning our wedding I never knew how important invitations were. I simply thought I’d choose a design that I liked and send them out. Oh how wrong I was; I’ve since learnt that the invitation is a window into your wedding. It’s a sneak peak of your theme and therefore should tie in oh so perfectly with your wedding.
I guess it does make sense; why would you use monochrome geometric styled invitations when your theme is soft, gentle pastels?
But you don’t need to include every texture, colour and pattern of your wedding on your invitations. You can simply take snippets to subtly draw in the look and feel that you want to portray. For example; I want to have a lace dress; therefore this lace embossed style invitation from Minted.com would give a slight hint into my dress or perhaps the decor.
I’m not into bling and will be wearing my mums pearls on the day of the wedding. This pearl dot invitation is a nice way to let guests know that it’ll be an elegant wedding.
The ceremony ail take place in a barn. Therefore although the theme is elegant there will be a slight rustic infusion … yea thats a delicate combination to try to balance! These rustic invites will hopefully set that tone nicely!
I want a lot of gypsolphylia in my wedding as well as ivory peonies; but I will also be having a splash of colour form David Austin roses in the Abraham Darby shade ( a peachy coral). The invite below would tie that colour scheme in really nicely, especially as it’ll be a summer wedding!
Now I’m not trying to play games with my guests. I don’t want to trick them or keep them guessing; I just think that it’s nice to keep everything in tune. If I stick to my set colour schemes and styles then I (hopefully) save my self from having to make too many decisions closer to the time. That’s the plan anyway!
Minted.com have about a million different designs so although it may be a long process; I’m sure to find my perfect invitation there!
Which invite do you think I should go for?
