So you’ve finally set the date for the much highly anticipated event in your life – your wedding! Now that that is done, it’s time to tell everyone you know that you’re tying the knot!
Weddings need plenty of preparation and the first step that you need to take is to ensure that everyone close to you will be there on your special day. And that’s certainly what wedding invitations are for.
To make your wedding cards visually enticing, you can go for the elegant styles which can be customized to suit your personality and preferences. These need not necessarily break your wedding budget. With a bit of research, you can have the best looking wedding stationery that matches your budget and style!
There are plenty of designs out there which you can select for your wedding. Selections range from classic to modern, and there are plenty others in between. Keep in mind, though, that simple does not mean boring. As a matter of fact, simplicity brings out the beauty in anything. Simple but elegant wedding invites are eye-catching even without the bold colors that other more contemporary wedding invitations are known for.
The secret in making elegant stationery look ultra stylish is in the details. The paper used for printing can make or break the allure of the wedding cards. Selecting high-quality paper for your invites can bring out the other details in your elegant themed wedding invites. Papers come in different textures and shades, so pick the one that is most appropriate for your wedding theme. The traditional white is a classic and can be used for almost all wedding invitations. If you want to spruce it up a bit, add metallic colors like silver, copper or gold on the borders. Place the papers in layers to give your elegant wedding invitations more character and depth.
As for the lettering, nothing else comes close to sophistication than script or cursive lettering. The text may be embossed in colors to make your wedding cards all the more elegant and stylish. Traditionally, the wording on most elegant themed wedding cards should be formal, but you can tweak the text a bit to make it more tailored.
Do not forget the other decorative aspects of your wedding stationery. Aside from colors and textures, you can also play around with embellishments to make your invitations extra pretty and inviting. Trimmings such as: lace, pearls, ribbons and an occasional feather can create a touch of classiness when placed purposefully and tastefully on the invitations. A decorative seal on the envelope enhances the overall beauty of elegant wedding invitations by giving them an old-world feel.
