  • Travel Themed Wedding Invitations

    Posted on December 16, 2014 by Nicole

    Wanderlust is the strong desire to travel, to see the beauty of each corner of the world, taking in the experiences, sights and wonder that it holds. As you sit down to plan your wedding, you may have a strong desire to mix a little travel into your wedding. Start off with a wedding theme, design your wedding invitations and complementing stationery to flow effortlessly and make an impression with your guests. There are some great travel themed wedding ideas out there; you are really spoilt for choice.

    First of all, have a chat with your fiancé. Find out what he/she would like for the wedding. Let your thoughts and wishes be known, and come to an agreement about your wanderlust themed wedding. Having said that, you also need to settle on a style for the theme, that is, what feeling should be conveyed (elegant, fun, casual, quirky, vintage, etcetera), the colour scheme, and the details you would like to stand out. The first unveiling of your wedding theme will be with your travel themed wedding invitations (and accompanying invite accessories – the reply card, directions and accommodations card, wishing well and gift registry card, etcetera), so start there. For some, it’ll be the save the date.

    There are some unique ways that you can not only make your wedding invitations, accessories and stationery personalised and custom to your wanderlust wedding, but also how you go about planning a truly sensational wedding day. Tying up your travel themed wedding with a destination is another great way to plan a fun wedding. If it’s a weekend, you can even plan relaxation and fun activities leading up to the wedding and afterwards before your wedding guests have to head back home. Turning your wedding day into a mini-holiday will truly make it  a memorable one for everyone there!

    Here are some great travel themed wedding invitations & stationery for you to consider.

    Postcard Save the Date Cards

    Most holiday-goers send out postcards back home to their family and friends; why not incorporate that into your wedding stationery?  Style a save the date card cleverly into your travel theme and send it out. A photo save the date would be ideal, especially if you and your fiancé have taken the time to take a few professional pictures with a wanderlust theme in mind.

    Boarding Pass Wedding Invitations

    Wedding invites styled after boarding pass tickets are truly clever. The arrangement of information is so carefully laid out, plus it comes with a themed enclosure card to fit it snugly and neatly, especially when you have invite accessories with you. If you are having an intimate affair and you would like to make sure your closest and dearest family and friends will be there on the day you marry your love, then you can even slip in an actual boarding pass airplane ticket behind the boarding pass wedding invitation. Won’t they be surprised and totally excited? We definitely think so!

    Luggage Tag Styles Wedding Invite Accessories

    When you’re sending out travel themed wedding invites, you might want to carry the theme onto your wedding invite accessories. Why not use luggage tag shaped cards to include the likes of your directions to the ceremony and reception venue, accommodation options for your wedding guests, wishing well verses and not to mention the gift registry information too. You can even include a ribbon attached to the punch hole in the luggage tag card to make it authentic.

    Passport Wedding Invitations

    Passport Wedding Invitations

    Passport themed wedding invites are fun too. The pages within can mimic the bio information and you can even include a photograph of the engaged couple. It’s a great way to include all the wedding information such as what you would usually include in wedding invite accessories into the passport wedding invitation pages and you can customise your wedding invitation wording accordingly. As these are little booklets, your envelopes will be small as well, and make for great keepsakes too.


    Don’t forget that you can easily customise the colours and designs you want featured on these stationery items to match your theme, whether it’s with illustrations (seashells, palm trees, tropical flora and fauna, etcetera), photograph designs or even painting techniques. Consult with your wedding invitations designer and let them your wedding vision be known.

    Engagement Photo Invitations

    Many newly engaged couples love putting together their engagement photo invites. What is yours? Did your wonderful fiancé have a secret photographer to snap that moment right when it happened, did he set up a camera on a timer and have it click away as he got down on bended knee? Or are you having an official and wonderfully thought out engagement photo shoot? When you find that special picture from the ones you have laid out for you to pick and you know in your hearts that that should be the photograph that should be remembered by all your invitees, then that's what will be featured in your engagement photo invitations to be shared with love.

Depending on your choice and how much of the invitation wording you'd like featured then you'll make your pick of what's available.

These are important things to consider and should be communicated to your photographer.

  • Save the Date Wording

    Posted on November 5, 2014 by Nicole

    You’re putting it all together, a beautiful day that will be remembered for the rest of your lives. Your wedding day should be memorable and if you’re planning a memorable wedding start with all the details including sending out save the date cards in advance to ensure all your guests and invitees can make it.

    Save the date

    Sending a save the date is such a polite thing to do as it lets your wedding guests know way in advance that they need to ‘save the date’ for your special occasion on this particular date and at this particular location. The date in itself will help let them block out the day (be it the day or the night) from their calendar, but when you let them know the venue especially if it is out of town/state or even the country, you are given them time to make plans to attend which can include travel and accommodation plans and more.

    In your save the date card you can opt to include the bare minimum, so that your save the date wording will read something as follows.


    Save the Date


    Jack & Jill


    8th November 2014


    Dear Guest,


    A Wedding Invitation

    will follow, but please


    the 8th of November 2014

    for our Wedding Day.



    This being the easiest possible or standard save the date wording option, you are able to let your wedding guests know more information if you wish to. This can include adding the venue information, for example if it’s out of town or state or in a different country all together. These bits of information are important to your guests, especially if they will need to make their own arrangements for travel and accommodation. Some brides and grooms choose to share with the wedding guests choices of accommodations and travel options and even liaise with them to get deals at a discounted rate to attend the wedding day whilst some bridal couples will take care of all the arrangements and ensure that their guests will be able to make it as long as they set aside the time. In such events, you can include information on travel and accommodation options.

    Save The date cards

    If you are planning on sending accessories with your save the date cards, then your save the date wording will be a little more thorough.  If you’re planning a destination wedding, what about sending your guests a passport styled save the date, with one sleeve including the wedding information (such as the names of the bride & groom, the date and venue) and then other sleeves including airplane options and possible discounted rates being offered for the wedding that has been arranged along with accommodation options too. This little save the date booklet in the form of a passport makes it easier to include all the information in a neat and tidy manner. Sending out your save the date cards and choosing the save the date wording to go along with it is important as it’s a precursor to the wedding invitations, and is a thoughtful way of letting your guests and invitees know you really want them there.

    Keepsake Save the Date Designs

    Photo Save The Date Cards

    If you want to give your guest something that is meaningful to you both, such as a a photograph from the moment your fiancé proposed to you (courtesy of a secret photographer – your fiancé thought of everything),  or even photographs from your engagement photo shoot or just a beautiful photograph in general, you can incorporate it into your save the date designs in a beautiful manner. These make for truly great keepsakes, and your save the dates will have a place forever in their hearts.


    Cute Save the Date Designs

    Destination and keepsake save the date designs are great, but so are cutesy and adorable styles that will make your invitees “aww” and gush over and have them by the cuteness of it all.

  • Styling Tips for a Beach Wedding Theme

    Posted on October 23, 2014 by Nicole

    You're gathering ideas, asking for opinions and looking for ways to make  your dream wedding day come true. Start with your Save The Date cards or your Wedding Invitations and matching accessories and move to various ways in which you can style your wedding theme. This week, we bring you Styling Tips for a Beach Wedding Theme and we'll  be looking  at exciting and new ways in which you can really awe your wedding guests. Let's find out!


    Bearing Good News via Save the Dates or Your Wedding Invitations

    When you're  good and ready to share with your family and friends the great news of your nuptials, you can invite your guests to your special day first with save the date cards or wedding invitations. It's  especially important to send out save the date cards early on when you're hosting  a destination wedding, the wedding venue requires  guests to make prior arrangements or falls during holidays.

    Beach Wedding Invites

    Now, when it comes to styling these, you can make them fun and exciting, especially with beach or destination weddings. One way is with Passport and Boarding Pass designs. Wedding invitations  can be either one but if your  hoping to send out a save the date  card beforehand, consider a theme. For example, you'll send them a passport themed save the date with the details of the wedding,  a photograph, accommodation  and even air travel options and then a boarding pass wedding invitation closer to the date. You  can style accessories  such as the wishing well  and gift registry  cards as luggage tags to stay within your beach/destination/wanderlust wedding theme.


    On the Day Beach Wedding Styles

    Beach Wedding Invitations

    If you have picked a theme that  revolves  around  beach-y styles such as the sand and seashells or the colours  of the sea, that's  great; you'll  have a lot of inspirations  and means to style  your wedding  day. It can be filled with just that  and more  depending  on  the materials  you've  picked out from the papers  to the textures and embellishments (such as using  seashells as trim or a sandy print throughout  the stationery). However, if you've  picked a theme that  aligns more  with a wanderlust /destination theme, then the way you style  it can be inspired  by maps, globes, postcards and not to mention suitcases. This  will tie in beautifully with the passport  and boarding pass invitations and cards. Your on-the-day wedding stationery will match them  with the design, colour, font family and more.
