  • Wedding Invitation Trends of 2015

    We're making our way into the second season of the year. If you're sitting down to figuring out your wedding style and you're wondering what wedding invitations trends are taking the world by style, we've put together some choice wedding trends with pointers from Elizabeth Mitchell and Debra Witt of Brides and Bridal Guide fame!

    Illustrations: Many brides and grooms have loved this option because it puts a unique and personal twist on the wedding that moves away from the traditional minimalistic appeal. However, nowadays you can find illustrated wedding invites that are stylised with choice colours to achieve the maximum wow effect. You will see flourishes and leaf designs, to border art and more.

                                                                   DreamDay Invitations Printed Wedding Invitations

    Hand lettering Designs : This means to say lettering that looks like handwriting or even, drawings that look like it's been written. It's quite the rage and looks lovely when finished. What most brides are opting to do is choose printed wedding invitations designs that make for an affordable invitation option.

    Bold Colours and Contrasts: Colour, colour, colour; it's all about colour! You will find this goes hand in hand with hand lettering and also illustrations with pops of colour whilst the colour of the paper is often white for that stark contrasting effect.

    Woodland Accents: If it was ever the time for the world to be eco friendly, it's now. Choose recycled paper (of the PCW paper variety or otherwise) for your wedding invites and match it with woodland designs and effects such as with bark designs or illustrations too.

    Embellishments: For the traditional brides and grooms who do not favour too much contrasts and pops of colour, and lean more towards quality paper stock, trims and embellishments, you will find it's your year with ribbons, buckles, clusters and appliqués being much in favour.

    Choice of Paper: Quality paper that often mimics or resembles the bride's wedding dress is a favourite amongst many brides, so you will find that this trend is one that many couples to be wed will look to.

    Photo Invitations: Photo shoots for wedding invitation cards are fun to make the wedding planning process more memorable as well as it makes for great keepsakes for the wedding invitees too. More and more couples are looking to these designs for its unique and personal effect.

    Be inspired by these great wedding invitation trends to style and design your wedding to be a memorable and wonderful affair!

  • Etiquette for Announcement Cards for Weddings, Engagements & Elopements

    Etiquette is important with concern to courtesy and civility in your community, whether it's with family, friends or acquaintances. When it comes to announcing special occasions or a milestone event in your life, an announcement card says it best.

    Announcing the Engagement

    The first people you'd probably share the good news would be your parents (and kids if you have any). Once the immediate family has been notified, you can design a lovely announcement card and mail it out.

                                                                              DreamDay Invitations Customise your Engagement Announcement

    ​By custom, it's the bride's parents that will send the engagement announcement card. Some announcement wording ideas are as follows;

    Formal Engagement Announcement Wording:

    Mr. and Mrs. John Smith are pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter, Mary Ann Smith, to James Oliver Brown, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan Brown. A June wedding is planned at the Church of the Resurrection in Our Town, Anystate.

    Semi - Formal Engagement Announcement Wording:

    Mary Ann Smith and to James Oliver Brown are happy to announce their engagement. A September wedding is planned.

    Informal Engagement Announcement Wording:

    We did it! We're in love, the ring is beautiful, and we are thrilled to announce our engagement. -Mary and James.

    Announcing the Wedding

    Usually this announcement is sent right after the wedding is held and sent to friends, family and acquaintances that couldn't make it or you weren't able to include in the wedding guest list due to budget constraints. The wording for these wedding announcement cards is quite similar to the engagement announcements. A few examples of the announcement card wording are as follows;

    Formal Wedding Announcement Wording

    Mr. and Mrs. John Smith are pleased to announce the marriage of their daughter, , Mary Ann Smith, to James Oliver Brown, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan Brown, on 14th February 2015 at Church of the Resurrection in Our Town, Anystate. A celebratory reception is planned for 15th March 2015 at Hemmingway Hall, Sydney.

    Information Wedding Announcement Wording

    John and Jane are pleased to announce that Mary and James went away for vacation and got married in a tropical destination! Mary and James were married 14th February 2015 in Bali. We hope to celebrate with you on 15th March 2015 at Hemmingway Hall, Sydney.

    Announcing an Elopement

    Elopements are becoming more and more popular as couples prefer to get married in getaway destinations and/or prefer a civil ceremony over planning a wedding. But, it's not for everyone. For those who prefer it, the wording of your elopement announcement card should ideally be short and sweet, and could include a photograph from the day if you'd like it to be a keepsake item. An example of what an Elopement announcement card is as follows;

    Brittany Smith and Jonathan Myers wish to announce their wedding at a private ceremony on January 20, 2015.

                                                                               photomonogramweddinginvitations

    Any of the wedding invitations or engagement invitations designs can be customised to be made as announcement card for an engagement, elopement or wedding.

  • Typography Invitations for Weddings

    If you're looking for something unique, a design never seen before, then choose to buy typography wedding invitations because it's all about the words and how it's graphically represented. As the words play the biggest role in the unique edge, the choice of colour and complementing illustration or photography can accentuate the look even more.

    The great thing about typography invitations for weddings (or any other special event, for that matter) is that the way you present your information can even hint towards what you're planning, a preview of your love story. The accompanying invitation design as well as the typeface style can decide whether it is modern or vintage typography to allow your overall wedding theme shower through in an out-of-the-box and creative way.

    There are many types of invitations that use wedding typography styles that are well received. When you choose a specific typography wedding invitation template, if you're looking to personalising it you need to also consider the complementing items, such as the following.

                                         DreamDay Invitations Typography Invitation Designs for Weddings

    The Wedding Invite Wording - The choice of typeface, also known as the font has a huge influence on how the wedding invitation will look. If you are looking for a modern design, then san serif fonts would be ideal, whilst vintage styles would lean more towards serif and scripted fonts.

    The Wedding Colour Palette - The choice of colour and how each word (or even letter) is typographically laid out matters, because you're able to make a certain word or sentence "pop" in a seamless manner. These also extend to the accompanying illustration or flourish design to any iconography you may choose to include personalising your wedding invites. Chalkboard wedding invitations are quite popular in this regard.

    Use of Photography and Placement of Typography - If you have decided the style of design you want and if it involves modern typography that is often complemented with photography, then you might want to either select the invite template you want to use so you can work the photography style around it or you could choose the opposite where you choose the photography and move the placement and choice of typography design to include.

    The options are endless when you choose to buy typography wedding invitations online as you can communicate your custom requests for personalisation through email or chat and avoid the hassle of making appointments to consult the invitations designer for minute edits and changes.
