There is something so special about receiving a letter in the mail. When it happens to be a beautiful invitation to a wedding, it is even more exciting!
The invitation is the very first glimpse that guests will have of the splendor that is to be your wedding day.
It is likely the first decision that couples make together about their wedding. Selecting the invitation encourages couples to decide on their color palette, theme, and style for the wedding. The invitation should be a reflection of the decor and overall feeling that they hope to evoke on the big day.
One way to do this is through color. A bold color choice will be sure to set the tone for the entire wedding.
Some couples may opt to go the DIY route. This works well if the you are artistic and crafty. It also helps if it goes well with the theme of the wedding. For example, a rustic wedding is complemented by crafted cards wrapped in twine, similar to the image below.
Letterpress or unique printing always add a luxe touch with a sense of formality. We adore these invites. While more inexpensive, guests will not be disappointed with letterpress and other uniquely printed invites.
Push the envelope! Gone are the days when you needed to keep invitations traditional. Now you can think outside the box and do something to WOW guests.
We hope that these invites give you plenty of good ideas for your wedding!
