Were you delighted by the look of traditional wedding invitations, the purity of white with lace detailing, and the ethereal look of bridal innocence that goes with a traditional wedding style?

    If you already have an idea on what your traditional wedding will look like but need some guidance for the likes of your traditional wedding invitations, here are some designs and styles that are ideal.​​

    Colour: White is the popular choice of colour for traditional weddings; however you'll find that when it comes to printing the invitation wording, black on white is a preferred choice. There are many brides and grooms that prefer to use neutral colours too, often coupled with white such as ivory, beige, gray and light pastel shades. These are further accentuated with the choice of design elements used. Depending on the traditional design choices that strikes a chord with your sense of style, you will need to select a the right choice of colour for ​your wedding invites to take after it.

    Design Elements: When you take traditional design elements, they are almost always elegant and classy. As colour plays a great role in the final look, choosing a few options of designs and colour is always a good rule of thumb. Lace designs have always been considered a traditional design style that is immensely popular with wedding design. Most of these traditional designs are derived from historical decades or eras from various countries whether it's from Russia, France, Britain and more. You can be inspired by Imperial Russia, Renaissance, Victorian times and more. You will find designs that have intricate patterns and focal designs, such as filigree, flourishes, and damask to name a few.  You will also find that these scripted or serif fonts are best suited for traditional wedding invitations.

    Trims: Adding a classic decorative item to your wedding invitation design can definitely make an impact on the overall look and style. For example, if you opt to use ribbon along with a pretty faux diamante square, circle or heart shaped buckle, it'll be a very appealing. The same applies to using clusters and brooches coupled with satin ribbon styles and even lace trims to further enhance the look of your traditional wedding invite cards while keeping in line with an elegant and classy style.

    Specialty Treatments: These specialty treatment styles can be anything from using treatments done directly onto the invite paper or cardstock, or you can use wedding specialty papers that can be used to stylise the traditional invitations. These can range from embossing and foiling treatments on the invitations while you can use embossed, foil printed, glittered and even flocked specialty card stock to accessorise the wedding invitations too.

  • Typography Invitations for Weddings

    If you're looking for something unique, a design never seen before, then choose to buy typography wedding invitations because it's all about the words and how it's graphically represented. As the words play the biggest role in the unique edge, the choice of colour and complementing illustration or photography can accentuate the look even more.

    The great thing about typography invitations for weddings (or any other special event, for that matter) is that the way you present your information can even hint towards what you're planning, a preview of your love story. The accompanying invitation design as well as the typeface style can decide whether it is modern or vintage typography to allow your overall wedding theme shower through in an out-of-the-box and creative way.

    There are many types of invitations that use wedding typography styles that are well received. When you choose a specific typography wedding invitation template, if you're looking to personalising it you need to also consider the complementing items, such as the following.

                                         DreamDay Invitations Typography Invitation Designs for Weddings

    The Wedding Invite Wording - The choice of typeface, also known as the font has a huge influence on how the wedding invitation will look. If you are looking for a modern design, then san serif fonts would be ideal, whilst vintage styles would lean more towards serif and scripted fonts.

    The Wedding Colour Palette - The choice of colour and how each word (or even letter) is typographically laid out matters, because you're able to make a certain word or sentence "pop" in a seamless manner. These also extend to the accompanying illustration or flourish design to any iconography you may choose to include personalising your wedding invites. Chalkboard wedding invitations are quite popular in this regard.

    Use of Photography and Placement of Typography - If you have decided the style of design you want and if it involves modern typography that is often complemented with photography, then you might want to either select the invite template you want to use so you can work the photography style around it or you could choose the opposite where you choose the photography and move the placement and choice of typography design to include.

    The options are endless when you choose to buy typography wedding invitations online as you can communicate your custom requests for personalisation through email or chat and avoid the hassle of making appointments to consult the invitations designer for minute edits and changes.

These are fun designs mainly because there's so much inspiration to go around. The styling and medium you use to portray your theme can be with illustrations, photographs or even handmade embellishments. Imagine this, you've planned a  great agenda for your big day with air travel,   a welcome beach party for the wedding guests and more.

  • Styling Tips for a Beach Wedding Theme

    You're gathering ideas, asking for opinions and looking for ways to make  your dream wedding day come true. Start with your Save The Date cards or your Wedding Invitations and matching accessories and move to various ways in which you can style your wedding theme. This week, we bring you Styling Tips for a Beach Wedding Theme and we'll  be looking  at exciting and new ways in which you can really awe your wedding guests. Let's find out!

     

    Bearing Good News via Save the Dates or Your Wedding Invitations

    When you're  good and ready to share with your family and friends the great news of your nuptials, you can invite your guests to your special day first with save the date cards or wedding invitations. It's  especially important to send out save the date cards early on when you're hosting  a destination wedding, the wedding venue requires  guests to make prior arrangements or falls during holidays.

    Beach Wedding Invites

    Now, when it comes to styling these, you can make them fun and exciting, especially with beach or destination weddings. One way is with Passport and Boarding Pass designs. Wedding invitations  can be either one but if your  hoping to send out a save the date  card beforehand, consider a theme. For example, you'll send them a passport themed save the date with the details of the wedding,  a photograph, accommodation  and even air travel options and then a boarding pass wedding invitation closer to the date. You  can style accessories  such as the wishing well  and gift registry  cards as luggage tags to stay within your beach/destination/wanderlust wedding theme.

     

    On the Day Beach Wedding Styles

    Beach Wedding Invitations

    If you have picked a theme that  revolves  around  beach-y styles such as the sand and seashells or the colours  of the sea, that's  great; you'll  have a lot of inspirations  and means to style  your wedding  day. It can be filled with just that  and more  depending  on  the materials  you've  picked out from the papers  to the textures and embellishments (such as using  seashells as trim or a sandy print throughout  the stationery). However, if you've  picked a theme that  aligns more  with a wanderlust /destination theme, then the way you style  it can be inspired  by maps, globes, postcards and not to mention suitcases. This  will tie in beautifully with the passport  and boarding pass invitations and cards. Your on-the-day wedding stationery will match them  with the design, colour, font family and more.

  • Custom Boarding Pass Wedding Invitations

    The ideal complement for a destination or travel-inspired wedding, boarding pass invitations are elegant, unique and truly eye-catching! Custom boarding pass wedding invitations subtly communicate the travel vibe and unique wedding style, while not revealing too much. Here are some of DreamDay Invitations favourite ways to customise your wedding invites for a distinctive and creative look that’s sure to impress.

     

    Adding Photos to Boarding Pass Invitations

    Frangipani Boarding Pass Wedding Invitations

    Personalise your boarding pass wedding invitations by adding your favourite photo of the two of you. Depending on the style of your wedding, you can opt to use either a formal photoshoot style photo or a more casual picture. If you had someone capture the proposal, add a photograph of this memorable moment to instantly transform your wedding invitations into a keepsake that will be treasured over the years.

    In the case of destination weddings, we love the idea of couples incorporating a photograph of the wedding venue in their boarding pass wedding invites. If a picture of the location is not possible, you could include a popular landmark, such as the Eiffel Tower if you’re getting married in Paris!

     

    Using Monograms in Wedding Invitations

    Monograms are a great way  to add a custom touch to both traditional or contemporary wedding invitations. Popularly used in boarding pass wedding invitation designs too, monograms  should ideally use an elegant cursive font such as Edwardian Script or Monotype Corsiva.

    Monogram Boarding Pass Wedding Invitations

    While you are free to  browse the Internet or other offline sources for inspiration and use unconventional monograms, traditionally monograms feature a combination of the first name initials of the bride and groom, with the bride’s initial used first.

     

    Personalised Wedding Invitation Wording

    Custom Boarding Pass Wedding Invitations

    Translating your chosen wedding theme into your boarding pass wedding invitations works well using graphical elements, but personalised invitation wording instantly showcases your unique personalities to guests.

    We’ve seen plenty of brides and grooms coming up with funny poems to reflect their unique wedding, that work hand in hand with the wedding invite design to leave a lasting impression on their guests.

     

    If writing a poem or limerick is not something you want to do, look around for a powerful quote that captures the beauty of your relationship or wedding. For a destination wedding, consider using a short local quote to play up the exotic nature of your wedding.

     

    Matching Wedding Invitation Accessories

    Complete the look of your boarding pass wedding invitations with matching printed boarding pass covers that resemble airline ticketholders. Don’t forget to incorporate monograms on your boarding pass covers too for a look of continuity.
