Today, let’s talk about wedding invitations or invitations, one of my favorite details! These beautiful paper creations are one of the first things you send to your guests and reveal the theme and atmosphere of your wedding. You would like your invitations to represent you and your future spouse and give an idea about your wedding, but what exactly could you do? I offer you some tips! Take a look below!
COLOR AND CONTRAST
Make sure the invitation has the color scheme of your wedding. To add some contrast, it is ideal perhaps to add the main color as a background on the back or on some parts of the cards. For example, in the following photo, the main invitation is white, while in the second photo the blue background stands out. This makes the whole suite more interesting, especially if you have a colorful theme!
ELEMENTS WRITTEN BY HAND OR WITH A FONT IMITATING CALLIGRAPHIC CREATIONS
Incorporating handwritten or hand-painted elements to make the invitation more natural and organic, will create a nice contrast with the calligraphic elements in the cards and will allow for an overall balanced and elegant appearance.
It is a good idea to highlight some elements in the invitations using hot stamping (gold lettering as in the photo above) or embossing (embossed decorations or lettering). Another option is to use hand-made or textured paper. This can give a unique and “rustic” look to your invitations, and is not common in most suites or coordinated!
GIVE SPACE TO THE ELEMENTS
Have fun with the typographic layout of the main page, while maintaining the emphasis on important details such as the couple’s name and date. You can also opt for a smoother look, like the names and headings and calligraphic fonts below.
Instead of using traditional envelopes, you can use twine, sealing wax, ribbons, etc … to group the various cards that make up the invitation. This will also add a personal touch to your invitations. If you are looking for envelopes, you can close them with a wax seal or add small details to the inside such as a printed lining.
