    Wedding Invitation Styles

    Adding a little glitter, sparkle and shine to your wedding via invitations and/or wedding stationery is a perfect way to preview the theme in mind with a bang! However, make sure you fine tune the theme before you commit as you don't want to "blind" or "overdose" your wedding guests with too much sparkle. Moderation is key here!

    When choosing your sparkle or glitter themed wedding invites, consider the following styles;

    1. Layered wedding invitations with glitter specialty wedding paper

    2. Layered embossed wedding invitation designs with a sequined sparkle effect

    3. Mix and match glitter or ​​sequin-style embossed paper wedding invitations with foil or metallic wedding stationery

    4. Glitter envelope liner to match wedding invite. Add a foil envelope seal to the back of the envelope as a personalised finishing touch.

    When you're planning on styling your wedding with glitter and sparkle, be wary that too much of it can overpower your guests and can take the focus off of the bride and groom, and quite possibly lean towards being gaudy as opposed to elegant/classy. Make sure to limit your use of glitter and sparkle to a few areas of your wedding such as the wedding invites, the wedding dress choices and accessories for the bride and bridesmaids, and possibly accenting the wedding cake and using a toned down design taken from the wedding invitations to be used in the wedding stationery.

    When it comes to styling the beautiful bride, you can opt for a modern white wedding gown with use of embellishments to bring in the glitter & sparkle theme into play. Using an embellished bodice or even an all-over sequin wedding dress for an ultra modern twist with a 1920s style inspiration, to even adding accessories as a neckline jewelled shrug, jewelled hair accessories, crystal bridal headband or diamante bouquet ribbon wraps are great ways to incorporate the design to bring the focus to the beauty of the day (or night).

    For a modern bride who would like to step out of the traditional wedding dress mould, she could opt to find a wedding sequined dress that mimics the same look as the wedding invites. A thing to note is that to avoid going over the top and making your design flamboyant, you can use simplistic colours and design elements. For example, the wedding invitation design features white with black (or the colour of your choice). These colours can be used through the wedding in a balanced manner - black and white placemats and napkin bands, black and white flowers with shimmery ferns adornments to name a few options. A bow tie or skinny tie with a crisp Italian cut suit would be ideal for the Groom!

    Vanessa Great Gatsby Wedding Invite

    A much loved wedding theme since Leonardo di Caprio made an impression in the movie, sparking more and more weddings to take to the fashion and style of the roaring twenties. This design by DreamDay Invitations features many  style elements from the colours of white,  gold and use of a contrasting black base for a contemporary effect in the wedding invitations and stationery suite. The borders and flourish detailing can be incorporated through the wedding with decor and even floral accents by using gold metallic finishes.  Whilst you need not wear a fringe or similar wedding dress style from the era, you can opt to use other style influences like feathers and trims inspired by the wedding invites for the rest of your wedding.

  • Thank You Cards for Weddings: Styles, Wordings and Inspiration

    "Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom" said Marcel Proust. Be courteous and kind and send a thank you card for one's presence, for one's thoughtfulness and for one's gift. It is good etiquette to send wedding thank you cards and should be done soon after the big day, as the sentiment will go a long way to whom you send the thank you cards to.

                            DreamDay Invitations Fantasy Lace Thank You Cards  Wedding Invitations & Stationery Suite DreamDay Invitations

    There are many types of cards that you can use to say thanks. They can range from an extremely personal handwritten note inserted into plain envelope, a printed note with a printed address label on the envelope, or a thank you card that has a design and is styled beautifully. The last types of thank you cards are best suited for weddings and/or special events. A printed card on quality paper stock/card stock to match the wedding theme with a printed wording and even the guests names printed tucked into a matching printed envelope says a lot. You can also add your own handwritten note to each card making it even more personal.

                            DreamDay Invitatiions Our Names Across the Heart- Thank You Cards  Wedding Invitations & Stationery Suite DreamDay Invitations

    These personalized wedding thank you cards are quite popular and have a number of styles that can be used. Choose from elegant styles that range from vintage, modern and even rustic. Some may be simple with only embossing details and no illustrations to match your wedding invitations and stationery. Photo thank you wedding cards are quite popular for their keepsake appeal as you can include a picture from the wedding that they may even be able to have it framed or kept in their scrapbook albums.

    The fact that you can maintain a professional look with the printed names and wording as well as add your own note at the end with your signature is a great advantage to brides and grooms because once they have the guest list in hand and their addresses, they need only order them, double check the details and wait for it to be delivered. Once you receive the thank you cards package in the mail, you can go through your list and take each guests card and envelope and write a few words and sign it off. All you'll need to do then is to stick on a stamp and mail it to your wedding guests!
