  • 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.

  • Ideas for Wedding Invitations Designs

    Posted on May 27, 2014 by Nicole

    There are many things for you to think about, it's your wedding day after all, so you'll need to plan ahead, at least one year to six months before the date. There's much to do, lots to decide and not to mention be inspired by. Your wedding invitations will be one of the first items of your wedding that your guests will see, but the deciding factor on what exactly it will be is based greatly on the complementing wedding items such as the wedding dress style, the ambience of the wedding venue, the feel of the wedding, the patterns and designs you are drawn to, and not forgetting your pick of the wedding colour(s). We've got some great ideas for your wedding invitations designs, and they are all centred on these wedding pointers.


    Let's have a look at wedding invitations that are...

    Inspired by your Wedding Dress

    When it comes to your big day, all eyes are on you as you walk down the aisle, and you unveil the beauty that follows a bride. Give a hint of what's to come via your wedding invitations. Whether your wedding dress is styled short, as a ball gown, has a mermaid tail, is one shoulder, strapless or sweetheart styled, you can be inspired to follow suit, be it with the shape, lines or even the materials (by including accents of lace and designs inspired by it).


    Inspired by your Wedding Venue

    Finding the perfect wedding venue is key to a lot of brides and grooms planning their wedding, because let's face it; the venue is the canvas to the beauty that your wedding ceremony and reception will be. Whether you are planning a wedding on a beach, at a ballroom (or even a museum), a vineyard, private estate or in the country, you can be inspired by it to make your wedding invitations hint at what wonder is to come. Photo wedding invitations, watercolour styles and even illustrated wedding invitations are favourites to express this idea. Use it for your special day too!


    Inspired by Your Personality and Style Aesthetic

    It's wonderful when the personality of a couple, together or as individuals shines through, especially on a wedding day. Start off on the right foot with your wedding invitations by instilling the same feel and style that you are hoping your wedding day will transcend to your guests, be it classical & timeless, casual & relaxed, modern & minimal, quirky & out-of-the-ordinary, or rugged & rustic. Your wedding invitations will be unique, wonderful and full of you!


    Inspired by Patterns & Designs

    You can easily reflect your style aesthetic from the patterns and designs that you are drawn to, whether they include stripes, floral prints, polka dots, lace, chevron and even damask. These, on your wedding invitations, to reflect the style aesthetic will be beautiful and ever so trendy. Mix and match them with your choice of wedding colour(s), and make a great impression with your invitees. Who knows, you could be starting a new trend yourself with your wedding invitation designs.

  • Destination Wedding Invitations Timeline

    Posted on May 20, 2014 by Nicole

    Destination weddings do require a lot of  planning! Getting organised with everything from your destination wedding invitations to other important wedding details is the best way to avoid any last minute catastrophes. With this in mind, here’s a breakdown of important deadlines for your destination wedding invitations timeline.

    Save the Date Cards

     Aim to send out your save the date cards at least one year before your destination wedding to give your wedding guests enough time to plan for the trip. Depending on your wedding style, your destination wedding invites don’t necessarily need to match the rest of your wedding invitation suite, so have some fun and change things up.

    Beach Save The Date Cards

     If you have decided to send out photo save the date cards, either schedule your engagement photo session for a formal photo, include your favourite photo of the two of you or a picture of the proposal if you have one.

    Destination Wedding Invitations and Other Wedding Stationery

    Start browsing and choosing your  destination wedding invites roughly eight months before your big day. This will give you enough time to sift through the plethora of destination wedding invitation styles available from boarding pass and passport wedding invitations to other unique designs featuring elements inspired by your unique wedding location, while also giving you plenty of time to make changes if you have any last minute problems with your destination wedding stationery.

    Beach Wedding Invitations

     Traditionally wedding invites are sent out approximately two months before the wedding, however destination wedding invitations should be sent out five months before to provide your guests with all the wedding details to finalise their travel arrangements. This will also ensure you receive the RSVP cards early too, giving you a better idea of how many will be attending.

     Order extra wedding invitations and envelopes in case you have any last minute additions to your wedding guest list and also if you make an error when addressing. Extra wedding invites make great mementos that you can cherish over the years too.

     If you are ordering other wedding stationery items such as place cards, programs, menu cards etc, aim to order these six to eight weeks before the wedding.

     Generally thank you cards should be sent out within four weeks of receiving a wedding gift. If you are not personalising your thank you cards to include a photo from the wedding or honeymoon, consider ordering them before the wedding to save time.
