    Creative Wedding Invitations and Wedding Stationery

    Don’t hold back, let your creativity flow and just go with it! Your save the date cards and wedding invitations offer your guests their very first glimpse of the tone of your wedding and your chosen wedding theme, so it’s important that you opt to customise your wedding invitations with unique touches. For instance, monograms are quite commonly used for traditional wedding invitations, however we expect to see a modernised version making a comeback for 2019 weddings. We love the idea of having a white ink or foiled monogram to really give your wedding cards an elegant, luxe touch. Did you know Dreamday Invitations offers silver, gold, rose gold and copper foiling for your foiled wedding stationery?

    For something extra, we recently had a couple have a wedding signature scent created and all their wedding stationery was scented with this - what a unique and beautiful touch!

    Floral Hoops for your Wedding Decor

    This is an unique new look that can be used for any part of your floral wedding decor from bouquets and ceremony backdrops to tent decorations and is particularly great for large spaces as it creates an impressive visual impact without you having to spend bucket loads to decorate the entire space.

    If you need more space on your tables, why not drop centerpieces and instead switch things up with hanging floral hoops for each table? They’ll look great for pictures, and you’ll also have tons more table space which can be used for sharing platters, drinks and allowing easy conversation across the table too!

    Ditch Your Wedding Dress For Pants

    Seems like a bold decision, but so many brides just want to be comfortable and opting to ditch your wedding dress in favour of pants is just the way to do this! Many designers are onto this new trend and can be seen creating elegant and feminine bridal looks with pants. If you’re still a traditional bride at heart who loves the idea of wearing a wedding dress, you can always opt to change into a bridal pantsuit at your reception - just perfect for dancing the night away!

    Unplugged Wedding Day

    Well meaning guests may unknowingly ruin your official wedding photographs by getting in the way when trying to take their own shots, which is why unplugged weddings are expected to become a really popular wedding trend in 2019. You can include this on your wedding invitations, as well as on a few tastefully placed signs at your wedding ceremony so that guests are aware of your request.

  • How Much Do You Know About Wedding Invite Etiquette?

    How well informed are you when it comes to wedding invitation etiquette? Chances are you’re feeling a bit lost with everything from when to send out your wedding invitations, what to include in your wedding stationery suite and what wedding invitation wording to use. If you’re nodding along as you read this, grab a glass of wine and keep reading - we’ve got all the answers for you!

    When Should You Send out Your Wedding Invitations?

    You can never give enough notice so we usually advise customers to send out their save the date cards at least three to four months in advance. As we’ve said before, no one’s going to complain about being notified in advance so follow up your save the dates with your wedding invitations at least six to eight weeks before your big day.

    If you’re planning a destination wedding, plan to send out your destination wedding invites earlier to give your guests plenty of time to save up for their airline tickets and make arrangements to travel overseas - something everyone will appreciate, especially guests with kids!

    What’s the Best RSVP Deadline to Set?

    Again this really depends on your wedding theme, but the general rule of thumb is two to three weeks prior to the event. This will give you plenty of time to reach a final headcount and advise the caterers instead of having to guess and having a whole lot of RSVPs closer to the date once you’ve paid.

    Should Registry Details be Included on Save the Dates or Wedding Invitations?

    Save the Dates

    While several couples opt to include their registry details on either save the date cards or wedding invites, wedding etiquette dictates that this is a big no no. It is still considered impolite to include registry info on your wedding invites, instead include it on a wishing well card or opt to your wedding party, parents and close friends pass around information on where you’re registered to other guests.

    How Should Wedding Invites Be Addressed to Guests With Titles

    In the case of wedding invitations being sent to guests with titles, the following general rules apply:

    ● Generally when a husband is a doctor, the invitation wording includes the title as “Doctor and Mrs. Harrison”, while if the wife is a doctor it should be “Doctor Amy and Mr. Peter Harrison”. If both are doctors the wedding invitation can be simply addressed as “Drs. Amy and Peter Harrison.” ● When addressing a wedding invitation to a single woman it should be address as “Ms” unless she’s a doctor.
