Most brides have spent quite a bit of time envisioning their ideal wedding and want every detail of this special day to be perfect. Selecting your wedding invitations is an important part of wedding planning, as it gives your guests the first glimpse of your special day and should aim to convey the spirit and style of your wedding with finesse. While contemporary and colourful wedding invites are popular these days, there are lots of couples that still prefer a marriage of old world charm with a modern touch. Luxury wedding invitations are the perfect option for couples seeking this chic and sophisticated blend.
A luxurious wedding invite sets the stage for your wedding day. It should express the romanticism and lavish style of a wedding, while still being an exclusive masterpiece that symbolises your personalities and the joining of your two lives.
Luxury wedding invitations are becoming more elaborate and lavish by the year! High-end collections use quality materials that incorporate the newest colours and are available in a variety of styles and speciality cardstock. While many stationers now design luxury wedding invitations using vibrant colours, popular colour palettes still express traditional elegance with rich silky hues of brown, classic ivory and black, as well as royal purple and white to name a few. Extravagant patterns, intricate Edwardian corner borders and embellishments such as vellum overlays, beautiful ribbons or ornate buckles work beautifully to add a luxurious finish to a wedding invite.
Script fonts are popular for formal invitations and are often used to add a touch of elegance to a wedding invitation. If your guest list is small and it’s within your budget, having your guest’s names handwritten in calligraphy on the insert and envelope is a fabulous way to give your invite a more personal edge. If a calligrapher is not within your budget, address the envelopes using a script or brush stroke font for a similar look.
Stationers usually have a variety of couture elegant wedding invitations to choose from – saving you time and the stress that usually goes hand in hand with planning a wedding. If you prefer an exclusive wedding invitation that is unique reflection of your wedding, you can work with your stationer to customise and personalise the design, layout, wording and style of your wedding invite to meet your individual style and needs.
For an elaborate and personal look to your luxury wedding invitation, speak with your stationer and opt to include a monogram sticker to seal your envelopes or an embossed monogram on your wedding invitation. This same monogram can be included in other wedding details like favour boxes, thank you cards etc to give your wedding continuity and flow.
