Check with custom invitation designers before purchasing, they might have some better ideas than what's been done before and can better guide you through the process.
Floral Wedding Invitations
Floral wedding invitations are a great way to bring flowers into your theme. Flowers can be incorporated into the design of your wedding invitation and used as a backdrop for your photo or other embellishments. Floral wedding invitations are also a great way to incorporate a custom design.
Foil Wedding Invitations
Foil wedding invitations are a popular choice for couples looking for a sophisticated look. They're also easy to customize: you can match the foil with other elements on your wedding invitation, such as the envelopes and cards.
Foil is available in a variety of colors, which means you can select one that matches your theme or better suits your personality. For example, if you want to highlight the classic elegance of your event, choose gold or silver foil; if it's more modern sophistication that appeals to you, consider copper or rose gold foils instead.
Foil adds an extra touch of glamour and glitzy drama when used as part of an invitation suite. Foil is often combined with black card stock for a beautiful contrasting affect—especially useful if you want to express something about yourself through color scheme but don't want anything too busy-looking.
Wedding invitations help communicate the tone and theme of your special day, and they also give guests a sense of what to expect from your celebration. It’s fun to choose the right type of invitation for your wedding so that it fits with your personality, style and budget.
One of our favorite Stationery vendors, located here in beautiful Colorado, is Lucky Onion. They had me at their name - because how cute is that (and the back-story is even cuter)! Also, the owners are fantastic and genuine people and we prefer to promote our local small businesses as much as we can.
