  • All You Need to Know About Save the Date Cards

    Posted on August 27, 2014 by Nicole

    Save-the-date cards are an important part of your wedding stationery suite and usually give your guests there first peek at the unique wedding theme you’ve got planned for your big day.While the main purpose of save-the-dates is to give guests early notification of your wedding date, in the case of destination weddings, couples sometimes opt to include key travel and other logistical information to provide guests with enough time to budget and make plans to attend. While save the dates follow a similar protocol and etiquette to wedding invitations, here are some important areas that you should keep in mind when sending out your save-the-date cards.

     

    When Should Save-the-Date Cards be Sent?

    Wedding planning gurus have different takes on this, but the general rule of thumb is to ideally send out your wedding save the date cards about six months before your big day. This gives guests plenty of time to make arrangements to attend, be it finding a babysitter to making travel arrangements if they don’t live in the vicinity. Similar to wedding invitations, we usually advise clients to not rush this stage and send out their save-the-date prior to finalising wedding details as the location or the wedding date can change or in some cases guests may even forget about this reminder if it’s in a year’s time for instance.

     

    Include Key Information in Your Save-the-Date

    As mentioned before, save-the-date cards are usually sent out to ensure your guest locks down your wedding date, however if you’re planning a romantic destination wedding, it’s best to give your guests a bit more information. Include key logistical information that has been finalised like the date, location, duration and if  you’ve found a travel agent providing a great travel package for your guests, include the pricing and the contact details of the agency in your cards so that guests can find out if they can afford the trip.

     

    Don’t use Your Save-the-Date as an Engagement Announcement

    New Dawn Save The Date

    This may seem silly to include, but you’d be surprised at the number of couples that send out save-the-date cards as an engagement announcement. Spend sometime finalising the wedding guest list with your fiancee first and make sure you only send out your save-the-date cards to people you want attending your big day to save both parties from an embarrassing situation. It can be a horrible experience to have an unexpected wedding guest and not have enough food or seating to accommodate them.

  • Wedding Traditions with Contemporary Choices

    Posted on August 19, 2014 by Nicole

    Are you a modern bride with some great ideas and twists up your sleeve? We've put together a few contemporary wedding traditions that you might find interesting such as opting out of some wedding activities or choosing a modern wedding invitations design. This is even truer especially if you want to break from tradition or you want to stick to them whilst adding your own brand of magic and personality.

     

    The Wedding Invitations

    Layered wedding invitations

    Many brides and grooms are moving away from the traditional all white wedding invitations for colour, flair and fun. Bold design, contrasting colours and not to mention fold styles such as pocket wedding invitations, boarding pass styled wedding invitations and more for your choosing make it possible to add personality.

     

    Walking Down the Aisle

    Many dads look forward to this wedding tradition, but if you have your reasons to choose differently, then there's no reason why you can't. You can walk down the aisle with whomever you like, even walk down the aisle yourself, making a grand entrance as you do.

     

    The First Dance

    If you aren't into dancing, then you can mix things up with this wedding tradition. When the time comes to announce the newlyweds, you can have the DJ invite everyone willing to the dance floor for a group first dance, or the bridal retinue can have a dance number or a flash mob too.

     

    The Wedding Cake

    If you're more concerned about the type of wedding dessert and wanting your favourite one, you can choose it over wedding cake. You will find that everything from cheesecakes, pies to cupcakes, cake pops and more are great choices for your choice of wedding dessert.

     

    The Garter Toss & Bouquet Toss

    There are some traditions that could either make you or your wedding guests uncomfortable. Whether it's the Garter Toss or the Bouquet Toss, they can be excluded or you can fit in something else, like a wedding montage of your love story.

     

    The Wedding Dress

    Most modern brides are moving away from the conventional white wedding dress mould and taking a step towards standing out. This could be the style and design to the colour. You can easily opt for pastel shades of colour, with ivory and blush pink being clear favourite amongst many modern brides who aren't afraid to take a step into contemporary wedding traditions.

     

    Whether it's your wedding invitations to the various activities, you may have planned for the day of the wedding and not to mention the details such as the wedding cake and dress, these are all twists to the wedding traditions you will find. Make your wedding day a dream come true with personality and flair, but importantly you.

  • Wordings for Beach Wedding Invitations

    Posted on August 5, 2014 by tess

    Getting your beach wedding invitation wording just perfect is no longer an overwhelming and daunting task, as you can now experiment with more casual wording options that reflect the unique nature of your beach wedding. Get as creative as you like with fun phrases for a laid back beach wedding or add an unconventional touch to an otherwise formal invitation wording for a traditional wedding. Keep reading for our top 5 ways to add a touch of seaside fun to your beach wedding invitations.

    Beach wedding invitations

    Frangipani beach wedding invitation

    1. Your beach wedding invitations give your guests their first glimpse at the unique seaside wedding you have planned for your special day. Keep in mind that your wedding stationery, especially your wedding invitations should reflect the wedding theme and style you’ve decided on, so you can either opt to keep your wedding invitation wording and design more jazzy and trendy for a contemporary wedding or more traditional for a formal beach wedding affair.
    1. Grab your guests attention right from the start by using cute seaside phrases such as “It's a Shore Thing...They're Getting Married” or "We're Building Sand Castles Together!" If your beach wedding invitations are following a more formal style, a short poem works well too.

     

    1. Keep the details of the wedding location short and sweet on your beach wedding invitations and instead provide your guests with further details of the exact location, such as directions or a map on a separate invitation insert card. If you’re hosting the reception at a different location afterwards, make sure to list the formal name of the building, street address, city and state that the restaurant, hall or ballroom is located at.  Add the time that the reception will begin too, just so that guests have a clear idea of how much time they have to get to the reception site and can make plans accordingly.

     

    1. Don’t forget to explain parking arrangements in your beach wedding invitations too. If there isn’t parking available at the beach, add a note on a separate invitation insert with directions to the wedding site from the closest parking lot. Let guests know if they have to walk a fair distance on sand to reach the wedding site, as there’s nothing more uncomfortable than walking in heels through sand!
    1. Either include a map in your beach wedding invites or as a separate invitation insert with the closest cross streets and any landmarks close the beach wedding site. Also aim to send out your beach wedding invitations at least 6 weeks before the wedding, to give out-of-town guests plenty of time to make travel arrangements.

  • Custom Boarding Pass Wedding Invitations

    Posted on July 22, 2014 by Nicole

    The ideal complement for a destination or travel-inspired wedding, boarding pass invitations are elegant, unique and truly eye-catching! Custom boarding pass wedding invitations subtly communicate the travel vibe and unique wedding style, while not revealing too much. Here are some of DreamDay Invitations favourite ways to customise your wedding invites for a distinctive and creative look that’s sure to impress.

     

    Adding Photos to Boarding Pass Invitations

    Frangipani Boarding Pass Wedding Invitations

    Personalise your boarding pass wedding invitations by adding your favourite photo of the two of you. Depending on the style of your wedding, you can opt to use either a formal photoshoot style photo or a more casual picture. If you had someone capture the proposal, add a photograph of this memorable moment to instantly transform your wedding invitations into a keepsake that will be treasured over the years.

    In the case of destination weddings, we love the idea of couples incorporating a photograph of the wedding venue in their boarding pass wedding invites. If a picture of the location is not possible, you could include a popular landmark, such as the Eiffel Tower if you’re getting married in Paris!

     

    Using Monograms in Wedding Invitations

    Monograms are a great way  to add a custom touch to both traditional or contemporary wedding invitations. Popularly used in boarding pass wedding invitation designs too, monograms  should ideally use an elegant cursive font such as Edwardian Script or Monotype Corsiva.

    Monogram Boarding Pass Wedding Invitations

    While you are free to  browse the Internet or other offline sources for inspiration and use unconventional monograms, traditionally monograms feature a combination of the first name initials of the bride and groom, with the bride’s initial used first.

     

    Personalised Wedding Invitation Wording

    Custom Boarding Pass Wedding Invitations

    Translating your chosen wedding theme into your boarding pass wedding invitations works well using graphical elements, but personalised invitation wording instantly showcases your unique personalities to guests.

    We’ve seen plenty of brides and grooms coming up with funny poems to reflect their unique wedding, that work hand in hand with the wedding invite design to leave a lasting impression on their guests.

     

    If writing a poem or limerick is not something you want to do, look around for a powerful quote that captures the beauty of your relationship or wedding. For a destination wedding, consider using a short local quote to play up the exotic nature of your wedding.

     

    Matching Wedding Invitation Accessories

    Complete the look of your boarding pass wedding invitations with matching printed boarding pass covers that resemble airline ticketholders. Don’t forget to incorporate monograms on your boarding pass covers too for a look of continuity.

  • Moroccan Wedding Invitations

    Posted on June 23, 2014 by Nicole

    A truly luxurious style that’s packed with bright colours and bold patterns, Moroccan wedding invitations are sure to leave a lasting impression on your guests. Whether you’re of Moroccan descent or just after an unusual wedding invitation design, Moroccan wedding invites can be easily personalised with unique elements to reflect your personal couple style in combination with lavish Middle Eastern designs. Here are some tips and inspiration for designing exquisite Moroccan wedding invitations with minimum effort.

    Choosing a Colour Palette for Moroccan Wedding Invitations

    Moroccan Wedding Invitations

    Moroccan wedding invites usually favour deep, vibrant colour palettes that feature opulent shades of purple, deep reds, burgundy, teal, blue and deep orange along with striking gold. Once you choose a colour palette by integrating two or three  of these colours for your Moroccan wedding theme, it’ll be easier for you to translate these colours to really add an instant Moroccan vibe to your wedding invitation, decor and all other wedding elements.

    Moroccan Wedding Invitation Designs Featuring Bold Patterns & Elements

    Set the tone for your Moroccan wedding with bold, extravagant designs such as an Arabic inspired tile pattern or lavish brocade patterns. You can either combine these patterns with a luxe blue and gold colour palette for traditional Moroccan wedding  invitation or  even emphasise the beauty of this unique invitation design with a variety of other colour palettes such as fresh orange and turquoise or a warmer pink and purple theme.

    Folded layered wedding invitations work well for a Moroccan inspired wedding and are great if you’re planning a destination wedding in Morocco and have a lot of wedding details to be included. Experiment with designer specialty wedding papers in popular Moroccan colours to create unique laser cut patterns to add a creative edge to your wedding invites. Integrate these laser cut designs into either layered wedding invites which can be held together using a simple gold cord with beads at the end or as pocket wedding invitation to keep  your wedding sheet inserts organised in a compact ensemble.

    Transform generic wedding invites to capture the flavour of the Moroccan culture with DIY embellishments such as tassels, colourful stone or bead work and for a truly lavish touch, use gold script fonts for your invitation wording.

    Look for inspiration just about anywhere when customising your wedding invitation with a Middle Eastern vibe. Anything from extravagant Moroccan rugs and henna designs to the beautiful Moroccan architecture offer great inspiration that will translate beautifully when creating exciting wedding invitations.
