I have many brides come to me for Wedding Invitations. One because they can’t find what they like or when they do it’s way out of their budget. We sit down with every bride to discuss what their dream invitation is and budget. Once we have that we create a few samples for them to choose from.
Cindy and Rich didn’t want a fancy invite for their destination wedding in Dominican Republic…instead something fun and fresh. They loved how they turned out.
Seeing it was a destination wedding we needed to add a little more info for everyone. So we made the card so it had two folds…invite on one then flip and then the destination card on the back. Kind of two cards in one.
If you have no idea what type of invitation you would like try to determine they type of wedding you are having. Will it be lavish and formal or more laid back and casual. Whatever your style may be it should set the scene for your wedding, letting your guests know what to expect. The formality is set by your invite and more guests determine what to wear by your invite.
Here are just a few guidelines that might help you along the way.
Brides who want their invitations to say everything about their wedding. The style is characterized by heavy cards stock and classic fonts.
Traditionalist who wants to throw a slightly less formal wedding. While these invitations feel classic and unfussy, they usually include an unexpected graphic element or unique font.
Is for the bride seeking a distinct feeling, usually inspired by a location or an activity. Maybe a message in a bottle for a destination wedding.
Couples who love to stray from convention…by using unique materials, unexpected embellishments….one bride wanted to have a quilt made for her wedding so she had invited made on fabric and had each quest who could attend decorate that piece and bring it to the wedding.
