    We love the look of these dull gold candlesticks with these blooming beauties! They just look amazing! The simple gold feather detailing against the white cake is bold and chic!

    The use of a draped sheet in neutral tones frames this intimate and sophisticated garden setting; whilst simultaneously drawing attention to the main focal point – a crystal chandelier. Furthermore, the inclusion of a gilt mirror creates the illusion of a larger, brighter space.

    One of the easiest and most simplistic ways of incorporating your glam style into your wedding theme is with the likes of china, glassware, and cutlery. Gold rimmed glassware, gold plates, or even cutlery makes for a beautiful look especially if the complementing colour palette is neutral.


    The same goes with the likes of Tiffany chairs in gold or any other metallic hue to your liking.



    Gold or copper mercury vases are just as beautiful in rustic glam styling as it brings simplicity with a touch of sophistication to the stage. We love these floral and decor arrangements even though not symmetrical or perfect, they go so well together!

    Go Big or Go Home Glam


    While not minimalistic or simple, they really do scream glam! Utilising sequinned tablecloth is a great way of getting incorporating your glam theme into your wedding design. However, what we would really like to highlight is the creative use of the Ship’s Wheel as the base for the floral arrangement.

  • Minimalist Modern Wedding Invitations & Themes

    The saying "Less is More" is paramount when your personal style aesthetic is minimalist and simplistic. Often associated with modern styling in day to day life, minimalistic weddings featuring modern wedding invitations, designs and styles are well received for its sophisticated and polished look. There are many ways in which you create a minimalist modern wedding theme, with ideas from the world over that can transform your wedding into an elegant and sophisticated soiree.

                                                      Modern Wedding Inspirations

    What is Modern Minimalist Design?

    Essentially a minimalist design involves less clutter and items being used.  Often it involves clean lines, a few items with white space to let the focal design feature show through. It allows for the eyes to draw up to it giving it the attention it deserves. Colours often chosen for a minimalist design are from the same palette, either on the opposite sides of the palette spectrum of from a neighbouring colour tone/shade.

    Modern Wedding Invitations and Custom Minimalist Designs

    ​When choosing your modern wedding invitations, they should reflect on the wedding vision and the minimalist modern style. A key point to note is to leave items to be open and flowing, with as less clutter as possible. This doesn't mean that you should abstain from using patterns, if used in a simple manner that creates architecture, depth or clarity, then you may do so but be wary that it's often best to use patterns sparingly in order for the focus to go to key design features such as the names of the bride and groom, a monogram or the focal feature. Try to avoid all-over designs when choosing your modern minimalist wedding invitations.

    Styling a Modern Wedding

    With a modern minimalist themed wedding, you're shifting the focus from the various other elements that could take the focus off the VIPs at the wedding - the bride and groom.  We've put together a few ideas to make sure the wedding is styled in a way that simplifies and minimises clutter.

    Ceremony: Use a natural backdrop if you're having an outdoor wedding or a focal background from your venue such as a framed window without creating a separate altar.

    Bouquets: Sticking to either one type of flower, perhaps using one or two colours of the same flower.

    Bridesmaids: Modern weddings often opt o ut of having bridesmaids but if you do, you can choose to simplify their attire with single coloured or patterned dresses, with minimal jewellery and natural makeup. ​

    Wedding Dress: A simple dress that fits your body type well, with as little lace, embellishment, or bead work is recommended to stay in line with the minimalist style.

                                          Modern Minimalist Wedding Dress

    Hair, Makeup, & Accessories: Keeping things as natural looking as possible is advised, with your hair smooth and shiny be it a natural flowing hairstyle (try wearing it down, half up, side pony, or a low bun). A hair accessory should be simple, the likes of a statement flower​would be ideal​

With unique wedding invitations, themes and decor accents, you've got yourself a wedding that your guests will be buzzing about for ages! Here are some unique wedding planning ideas!

    One of the most prominent features of a whimsical design theme would be colour and coupled with delightful patterns.

By customising those very patterns and designs with vibrant and bold colours, you're setting the stage for a truly memorable and whimsical inspired wedding.

                                        DreamDay Invitations Whimsical Wedding Invitations

    This type of wedding is ideal if traditional design isn't your personal style! It's the perfect look for a quirky and unique couple that are looking to break away from the traditional wedding mould to create a wedding style that is 101% theirs. By experimenting with unique shapes and looks, you can transform it into your wedding own custom look.

    Start with a wedding inspiration board putting together different ideas for you to blend together beautifully to make a cohesive yet whimsical wedding theme. Some couples truly revel in adding their very own custom designs such as their own handwritten notes included in the design of the wedding invitations, to adding doodles or hand-drawn caricatures that will reflect what's to be expected on the big day. You can carry the very same look and design onto other aspects of the wedding day such as the welcome sign(s) and other wedding stationery to the wedding cake and wedding bombonieres.


    Once you have your wedding invitations & stationery planned out and all you need to decide is the quantity you will need  (in terms of the wedding stationery, the quantities can be decided closer to the wedding date once guests have RSVPed). You need to think about the way you will style your decorative elements for the wedding such as the altar design, the tablescapes and more.

    Some opt for a garden inspired and other unique looks such as carnival to wonderland inspirations. A beautiful garden inspiration would be a hanging wisteria garden look for the wedding ceremony (whether indoors or outdoors) or if you fancy something more rustic yet full of fun and whimsy, a colourful themed overhead altar with life-size pinwheels. You can even use them instead of bridesmaid's bouquets, boutonnieres and hair accessories. Carnival themed weddings are usually the most common choices for whimsical weddings, but there are fun ways to customise these too. For example, you can trade in a typical photo booth for a kissing booth instead!

  • Glitter Wedding Invitations & Wedding Styles

    "She leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes" said Audrey Hepburn; a little sparkle never hurt anyone so why not choose a wedding theme full of sparkle with glitter wedding invitations and more wonderful theme styles to go with it. Here are some ideas for the wedding invitations, colour schemes, and styles for your glitter wedding.

    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).
