5 Ways to Personalize your Wedding Invitations
Your wedding day should be all about you and the person you are going to marry! From the dress to the food, to the flowers- it is all a reflection of what makes the two of you tick as a couple. Your wedding stationery is no different! Wedding Invitations and Day of Stationery are a great way to truly personalize your wedding and make it highlight how your celebration is unique to the two of you.
When you have custom stationery made by a stationer, the sky is really the limit! You have the ability to use the specific colours that you have chosen for your decor all throughout your stationery. You can do a subtle nod to the colours by incorporating them in minimalistic ways, such as a brush of watercolour or a floral pattern, or you can go with a big, bold splash by adding a pattern or full-colour invitation with a co-ordinated text. It is a great way to let your guests have a sneak peek at your colours (and also perhaps not end up wearing the same colour as your bridesmaids—awkward!!). Plus, when your photographer takes photos of your wedding invitations, everything will look gorgeous together since your decor and florals will match!
Relaxed, formal, minimalist, a hint of love “fromage” for the super ‘cheesy’ couple…
Your wording can be as unique as you want it to be. Yes, there is an etiquette to wedding invitations, but they need not be stuffy! Having a special theme? Why not include a poem or quote that reflects the theme you chose? Have a special saying that really reflects who you are as a couple? You can add that in!
If you are having a relaxed, casual day, we can customize the wording to let your guests know. Having a formal affair? A stationer can walk you through the customization process to make the most of the available ‘real estate’ on your invitation cards! Like Sandra & Johnny, you were "Meant to Be".
Art deco, minimalism, watercolours, lush florals, custom crests, boho, or opulent foil. There is so much you can do to personalize your invitation and coordinate it to the big day. If Gatsby is your inspiration, then the elegant decorative lines of the art deco period would be a perfect adornment. The invitations should reflect your taste, style, and the mood of the big day itself. When you buy something from a box, while it might be pretty, it won’t truly represent all of your efforts to plan the perfect day.
Custom Graphics- You can choose to have a custom graphic created that reflects your personalities, hobbies, interests, or even your pets! Custom Crests are also an incredible way to show off the merging of two families into one!
Custom Florals- You might include similar flowers on your invitations that you are including in your decor, or use florals of a similar colour palate. When you take photos of the invitations, you can include your own beautiful fresh florals in the photos and they will look amazing together!
Custom Monograms- A striking way to incorporate the names of the couple, whether you choose first initials, last initial or the letter of your new last name, it can be an elegant and personality filled way to represent who you are together!
Are you all about the bling? A stationer can some subtle glitz or full out glam to your invites! Glitter pockets, rhinestone gems, gem clusters or even shimmery metallic wax seals can add a special touch. A wax seal is a gorgeous way to incorporate your custom monogram!
Do you just love it when pieces all coordinate and come together? You can add a matching envelope liner, belly band, additional cards, programs, table numbers, seating charts, escort cards, menus and so many more items can be customized to match your invitations and theme.
