    What are Calligraphy Wedding Invitations?

    Calligraphy style wedding invitations refer to wedding invitation designs that incorporate intricate, decorative handwriting or printed decorative lettering that have been used for centuries.

    An art form that not just everybody can pull off properly, you would need to hire a professional calligrapher to hand-write your wedding stationery which is often a costly affair that many couples can’t afford - so how do you have calligraphy wedding invites for a more affordable price?

    Printed Calligraphy Wedding Stationery

    We completely understand that for most couples, the more affordable route is always important when it comes to planning a wedding, so that’s exactly why we think digitally printed calligraphy designs are a faster, cheaper and thus, better option to handwritten calligraphy.

There’s so many different unique wedding invitation designs that you could select for a winter wedding and here’s just a few of our favourites!

    Unique and such great momentos, we love the idea of customising your wedding invitations to feature photos.You can be as creative as you like when selecting pictures for your wedding invitations, but capturing the magic of winter with pictures of the two of you making snow angels, skiing or even just sipping on a steaming cuppa are some of our favourites. However, if you’ve decided on an unique wedding location away in the snowy hills, consider customising your pictures to include a sneak peak at the location in all its glory!

    Winter Wedding Invitation Colour Palettes

    Popular colour combinations for a winter wedding include both icy blue blended with shades of grey, metallic silver and white as accent colours or even a more warm colour palette featuring rustic wood tones, reds, burgundies and deep browns; all resplendent of a warm fire inside a log cabin.

    Unique Winter Elements for Wedding Invitations

    The trick is to keep the winter themed design elements to a minimum and not go overdo it to avoid making your winter wedding invitation designs cliche. Choose a few design elements that capture your winter wedding theme perfectly and include them in all parts of your wedding from the wedding invitations through to the wedding decor for continuity. Elegant illustrations of snowflakes or pine-cones combined with a cool blue palette really sets the stage for the chic elegance of a traditional winter wedding, while an artistic capture of two sets of skies with initials in the snow is more suitable for a quirky, fun couple

  • Reception Lounge Ideas


    Your wedding day is the beginning of a lifetime of love and fun, so why not use the same theme in your wedding’s design. By including unique styles and designs in your wedding reception, you will be able to make sure that you, your family, and friends can all enjoy the big day! One modern way of adding a unique style to your wedding reception is by having a lounge. This is ideal when you are planning on having a cocktail reception or cocktail hour before dinner. We have put together a few reception lounge ideas that we love for your wedding inspiration!


    You can put together your reception lounge based on the wedding style and theme. If you have chosen an elegant and sophisticated theme, the choice of furniture and materials may reflect that polished look. If you are looking at hosting a more casual wedding, then using rustic furniture and materials as well as choices of styling may be inspired accordingly. We have considered all these factors when we found these great reception lounge ideas and inspirations for your wedding day!

  • Bridal Veil Styles for Your Wedding Day


    The perfect bridal veil can complement the perfect wedding dress. This week we look at the various wedding veil styles that brides have chosen in the past along with some great bridal veil styles and inspirations that may be perfect for you. For many brides, putting on the veil completes the entire look and is the final touch to the whole ensemble. Deciding on a veil style can be as important as picking out the perfect wedding dress.


    Firstly, why is a veil worn? It’s a traditional custom that originated in Europe. It is also considered a reference to the bride’s innocence and is often worn by first time brides. The lifting of the veil can be done in two instances; either where the father lifts the veil and present his daughter to the groom, or when the groom lifts the veil symbolically referring to the consummation of the marriage.


    Whilst bridal veils are still very popular, the way you accessorise them is up to your personal style. You can use floral or diamante crowns and even jewelled hair accessories to complete your look. Here are the most popular bridal veil styles!


    The Cathedral Veil

    The most regal of bridal veils and often worn by monarchs, a cathedral veil is traditionally 120cm in length but can be longer. The most traditional of bridal veil styles it complements traditional wedding dresses that also have trains. Cathedral veils are also worn with a blusher veil that matches the design and is usually mid length compared to the height of the bride.


     

    The Chapel Veil

    The chapel veil is slightly shorter than the cathedral veil where it is often the same length or slightly longer than the brides’ wedding dress. Similarly, the chapel veil can be worn with a blusher veil. The chapel veils are chosen for its elegant and sophistication. You can either opt to have an embellished edge especially if you have chosen lace or opt for the simplistic design of the fabric you have chosen (such as tulle).

    The Fingertip Veil

    The fingertip veil draws its name from the fact that its length is measured from the bride’s head to her fingertip. It can be worn in various ways and accessories, and not to mention trimmed with embellishments or simply left as is with a trimmed hem. It’s an ideal choice for brides who want to opt out of the long length but still carry off the elegance of a beautiful veil.


    The Birdcage Veil

    original_delicate-birdcage-veil

    This type of veil carries a vintage look and it is ideal for brides who would rather not wear a veil longer than their shoulders. Made from netting, the length of the birdcage veil can vary between either covering the nose or the chin. There are many ways to wear with veil such as from the front or the side and adding embellishments and accessories is recommended too. Many brides love opting for a birdcage veil especially if they are fond of 1920s style!

    The Blusher Veil

    A blusher veil is what the bride will wear to cover her face while walking down the aisle. In terms of length, it usually reaches the bride’s elbows but you can also opt for a shorter style at shoulder length too. The bride can choose to either wear only a blusher veil or couple it with a cathedral or chapel veil.

    The Drop Bridal Veil

    The drop veil is one of the easiest to wear and remove as well, as it is a circular fabric that can be embellished if you wish. It is simply draped over the bride’s head and you need not use a hair comb to fix it to your hair. However, you can style it with a jewelled headband or crown or even a floral crown. Princess Grace and Kate Middleton both wore drop veils. The now Duchess of Cambridge wore it over her crown by fixing it to its back so that when lifted it was still secured (and would not fly away).

  • Putting together Your Wedding Planning Binder


    What every bride who wants a dream day wedding should know is that there is a LOT of wedding planning that will go down before the big day. This is in order for everything to go off smoothly without a hitch on the day you are hitched. It will include everything you want to, need to, and should do before, during, and after the big day. Think of this as your wedding planning bible, the grounding source of sanity while wedding planning takes you through the ups and downs of putting the perfect day all together. We did a bit of research and found out from various sources what you need for your binder, what exactly you should include in your wedding planning binder, and how you should go about managing it.

     

    Wedding Planning Book

     

    Essentially your wedding planning binder should include what your inspirations are, as well as include what you have finalised on (your wedding look-book, if you will).  You may also include all the financials, and not to mention the ever important assignments and to-do lists/checklists!

    There are a few essentials that you need, but also some optional items (which we believe can be extremely helpful to have). You will need the following.

     

    Wedding Planning Binder Cover

     

    A Three-Ring Folder/Binder:  This folder or binder should be sturdy and the size should reflect the type of wedding you are planning to have. A formal wedding may require more planning, therefore opt for a bigger size to accommodate more pages.

     

    Wedding Planning Binder Stationery Supplies

     

    Dividers, Clear Pockets, Re-sealable Bags, Tabs, Clear Protector Sheets, and Business Card Holders: These will be essential in making sure you are organised by knowing how to divvy up the areas accordingly. You should make sure you document the samples, changes, and choices, to be able to have all your vendor information in one place. You may use the re-sealable bags to include vendors receipts/payments and other bits and bobs for your reference.

     

    Wedding Planning Binder Printables

     

    Printouts of calendars, guest lists, worksheets, contracts, correspondence, thank you lists and more: Having these included in the wedding planning binder will allow you to have it in a central location. By having your guest list written down, you can use it for reference when planning various things from your wedding invitations, to seating charts, plans, and even thank you cards. There are various free printables available for your reference that can be edited on your computer to personalise them accordingly. Check out the following sources for such printables:

     

    Real Simple

     

    WedPlan

     

    Wedding Planning Post Its

     

    Reinforcement stickers, tabbed post-its and other accessories: The likes of reinforcement stickers will help the punched holes not give away to wear and tear, as well as the use of Post Its to help manage important sections and even with various notes such as to help with seating plans.

  • DIY Tips for Dressing Up your Wedding, Invitations & More

    Wedding planning couldn't be easier when it comes to wedding invitations, stationery and ways to elevate the overall look of your wedding in terms of presentation when dealing with a reputed wedding invites store. Shopping online for quality cards for the invites for the wedding, on the day stationery for both the ceremony and reception, as well as items for after the wedding too will be a breeze. Whilst the online invitations collection is vast and has many options in terms of colour, shape & sizing, sometimes you just want to or need to go the extra mile and add your own personal look. We've put together some DIY tips on how to dress up wedding invites and stationery!

                                            DreamDay Invitations Embellished Wedding Stationery

    One of the easiest ways to present your invites with a classy twist would be to use an invitation box, either in a paper quality or in clear PVC. The former style leaves a sense of mystery whereas the clear box lets you peak at the contents inside and offers excitement. You can include fancy tissue paper to add a layer of mystery, building up anticipation. Some even opt to add a ribbon band or even a customised printed belly band too. The decision is yours - a sample arrangement of the various styles you're thinking of having laid out side by side in its entirety will help you make a more informed decision.

    Ribbons, buckles, specialty paper, cluster brooches and other embellishments are other great ways to spruce up a wedding invite. The choice of ribbon (type, colour, texture and size) and the placement matters. Put together a few samples in different styles and collaborations with buckles or brooches to assess which works better.

    Bring specialty paper into the loop by playing with layers. Since there are many paper qualities available for the cards it's always a good idea to have samples sent to you to find the best type of specialty paper that will go with the colour, texture and look of the paper used in the invite. When you have selected layered wedding invitations, you can select the number of layers and how you plan on mixing the types of papers as well as whether you want to add a ribbon accessory in between a layer too.

                                                           DreamDay Invitations Layered Wedding Invitations Designs

    If you love the idea of adding small details to your wedding in just about everything you plan on including, that is perfectly fine. Here are some ideas for you to do; - If you're adding cluster brooches to wedding details such as the invite, you can also incorporate it into the shoes, boutonnieres, bouquets and more.

    - If you're having a night-time wedding ceremony, add ribbon and a sparkler to an order of service.
