Congratulations on your engagement! Now you are probably thinking where do you start… I can’t tell you how to plan a wedding, but I can offer you some helpful pointers to creating your wedding invitations.
This blog covers where to begin in figuring out what design or look you want for your stationery. It’s your wedding day, so I always say its about you and what you want, thats what is really important. So today, I'm going to give you some ideas for design inspiration:
- COLOUR - Do you have a particular colour or colours you are drawn too? Or you are using throughout your wedding day ie. Bridesmaid dresses, flowers, the colour of the groomsman ties etc?
2. STYLE/THEME - You may not even realise it, but you’ll have an idea what you like in your head. The sound of a country side wedding with loads of blush pink might set your heart on fire, or perhaps you are leaning towards something very organic and natural with whites and touches of green. Sometimes the flowers, dress or the table setting decorations you have chosen often give clues to what you like.
3. PERSONALITY - Do you have a design element that means something to you, or perhaps an icon from the venue you’d like incorporated? For example, you might like to include a tree motif to represent the tree you are getting married under.
It's not a bad idea to also browse wedding magazines, blogs or dare I say it pinterest.com (ha just don’t spend hours getting lost in there) for inspiration. Gather ideas and designs you quite like, and once you meet with your stationer they will be able to pull all your ideas together into a cohesive look that suits you… almost like little creative fairies.
But most importantly, enjoy this time. Take the time to browse and chat with each other about what you like.
