The Right Look for Your Wedding Invitations

You, like most brides, probably want to send out unique wedding invitations, but how do you choose the right one? Creating an impressive and originally invitation can be a challenge. There are many things to think about and budget is one of them. But they can be affordable and meet all of your expectations at the same time.

Today I have written up a short little article about how you can save and be creative at the same time. Let’s get started.

Do you love flowers?

Many women dream of a wedding on the beach, these are truly romantic events and on that will stay in people’s memories for many years to come. Think how special it would be to say your vows to a setting sun!

If you’re planning a beach side wedding, or want to incorporate flowers into your invitations, keep reading. One excellent way you can customize your invites is by utilizing subtle accents. These not only make it personal they also appear grander than a plain un-garnished card.

Adding the personal touch isn’t difficult, you just need a little time and some imagination. Take a trip to your local arts and crafts store and see what they have to offer. You can find flowers and other scrap-booking details that will work perfectly here. By fixating them on the corners of the invitation you will be creating a brooch like effect. It doesn’t have to be expensive, you can also find similar material at a lower price at your local dollar store. Most of these stores will have some sort of flower section that you can make use of. Pick out an exotic looking flower to use on your invitations.

Real flowers also work, and are a personal preference of mine.

Depending on the type of flowers you choose these can be a rather practical solution. Simply take the flowers of you choice, flowers that match your invite’s color, then find a book that you can press them in. One thing to keep in mind when you use this technique is that they need to be prepare ahead of time. Pressing flowers will take anywhere from one to two months. Once you have them pressed coat them with a clear sealant and glue them to your wedding invitations. Amazing!

For the Autumn and Nature Lovers

If you decide to celebrate your wedding in the fall, I applaud you, you have picked an amazing time of year to get married. The time of year should also be kept in mind, fall weddings generally have a very distinctive theme. The colors are warmer, cream and gold is a good choice here.

Since this is a pretty popular color all year round you will find plenty of craft material to create your motif. And the material are often on sale at this time of the year. If you happen to fined paper that has been pressed with leaves, a beautiful choice, make your invitations with this. Not every craft store will have this type of paper though. If that is the case you can always improvise and buy small embossed leaf stickers that you can fixate on the corners. When you go to the craft store inspiration won’t be far behind!

Make choices that fit with your personal style and taste.

A Love for Patterns

When people usually think of weddings, patterns are not one of them. Well, they weren’t. Patters have been growing in popularity over the years, and wedding-stationary has moved to accommodate that. You can pick from an almost limitless number of patterns, whatever you settle on make sure that the style is unified.

Patterns, while trendy can be hard to combinate. And a if the design gets too busy, well, it will make it hard to focus on what is really important. The use of patterns really does take an artistic eye, but if you feel up for the challenge don’t hesitate to give patterns a try.

When wedding invitations are styled with patters they are sure to have the modern look that many brides are after. A general rule, and this goes for the use of patterns in any situation, never mix more than three. Look at the what your arts and crafts store has to offer, hold them up together and pick the one that best fits your needs.

P.S. I would like to thank Melinda for letting me link to the examples of wedding invitations she has on here website. You’re a doll sweetheart!
