Fall Wedding Invitation Inspiration + Tips!

Dear Fall Brides and Grooms,

We rounded up a few of our favorite Fall wedding invitation looks for your inspiration. Here’s a some quick tips and ideas to consider before you order your invitations:

  1. Experiment with paper color. Choose a paper stock that suites your venue, or wedding theme. Consider a shimmer stock, or a dark stock with white ink for dramatically beautiful wedding invitations.
  2. Opt for romantic fall motifs + details. Grasses and leaves are pretty Autumnal art additions to any wedding invitation suite. Wedding Monograms play perfectly with a laurel wreath. Or choose a classic vintage monogram from our library. Deckle edges are soft and sweet, and look lovely with a vintage monogram.
  3. Pick a pocket. A pocket invitation is great option for a suite with multiple inserts – like accommodations cards, welcome party invitations, custom maps, rehearsal dinner invitations, or brunch invitations. Vary the sizes of the inserts in the pocket for a nice layered effect.
  4. Be adventurous with ink color! When it comes to ink color on your wedding invitations, showing your personality is what it’s all about! We’ve been seeing a lot of pretty powder blues and aqua colored inks in this fall wedding season. It’s an unexpected color for fall, but it’s stunning and unique.
  5. Accessorize! Add an envelope liner or shimmer backer to any wedding invitation suite for a glamorous touch.
  6. Foil Fever! Letterpress and Foil go together like peanut butter and jelly. It’s just such a sweetly classic combination. Of course, foil shines on it’s own, especially paired with a darker painted edge.

Whatever you choose, we know it will be uniquely you! Our talented retail partners are equipped to guide you through this process. Find a store in your area to schedule your wedding invitation appointment!

 

June Wedding Invitation Inspiration : A Look Back at Real Wedding Invites from June 2016

Invitation Inspiration! We’re taking a look at a few of our favorite June Wedding Invitations! These June brides and grooms kept their invitations sophisticated and stylish with special touches of color, choice of art and paper accents.

Congratulations to all of these newlyweds! It was an honor to help set the tone for your wedding with the look, style and feel of your invitations.

Hot hues for your wedding invitations:

  • Shades of Blue are pretty for any time of year! We love a combination of different blues, or using a lighter blue as an accent like an envelope liner.
  • Emerald is an elegant wedding invitation ink color.
  • Black + White: Choose Black Paper printed with white ink for a show-stopping wedding invitation suite. Use the black paper as an accent piece like the reception card or as the main invitation!
  • Coral is a fun and punchy color for an invitation, and it’s grounded with a gold silk backer.
  • Silver is a classic wedding invitation color that never goes out of style. It pairs well with cooler colors, like blues and greens.
  • Gold plays well with others! Gold is having a shining moment in the invitation world, from backers to envelope liners, or as the main star on the invitation.

 

Accents to make your wedding invitations unique:

  • Custom Maps are adorable and informative! Highlight the locations for all the wedding activities, like the Welcome Party, Wedding Ceremony, Reception site, and Sunday Goodbye Brunch. You can even add in points of interest, like the proposal location, or your favorite date night spot.
  • Shimmer Backers, Pockets + Envelope Liners add some real sparkle to any wedding invitation design! Pocket Wedding Invitations are great to keep all the wedding details together.
  • Gold Foil Dot Envelope Liners are a stylish addition. Foil envelope liners really pair nicely with many different wedding invitation designs.
  • Blind Deboss Monograms just add a distinguished touch on wedding invitation suites – and look good on every piece in the suite.
  • Deckle Edge Paper is a great option for a romantic, old world themed wedding invitation. Our deckle edge paper is hand torn for the most authentic effect.

Popular Wedding Invitation Sizes:

  • 6″ Square Wedding Invitation makes an impression.
  • 8.5″ x 5.5″ Wedding Invitation is stately.
  • 5″ x 7″  sized Wedding Invitation is economical for postage, and is very elegant.
