    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).

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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!
