Wedding invitations make a first impression to the guests about the wedding and they give a sneak peak of their color scheme and wedding style. You should make sure the design resonates with both of you.
The wedding invitation will define your wedding style by listing the location, time, and formality of the event. You should know the type of event you will be holding- modern and glamorous, relaxed and casual, or elegant and classic- before you shop for stationery. The wedding invitation style will reflect on a similar note.
You should also voice your likes and preferences about the invitation style to the stationer. The wedding colors will be incorporated in the invitations through the hues or a motif that will also be carried through all your wedding paper such as the ceremony programs, menus, and escort cards. Select the colors while considering readability of the wedding invitations.
You are not restricted to a rectangular shape when it comes to your invitations. If you are looking for a modern or playful vibe, you can go for square, scalloped, or even circular shaped invitations. Keep the text in mind as you consider the patterns and colors on your invites. It should be legible considering it is the main point of sending the invitation out initially. You will want a distinctive contrast between the invitation background and the text. As you also select a wedding font, ensure the words are readable as much as they are also pretty.
