Featuring everything from unique wedding invitation designs through to wedding dress trends, wedding photography and wedding decor tips, this post is a definite must read for all 2019 brides and grooms - so keep reading!

    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.

  • Weddings & Invitations Inspired by Shades of Blue

    Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something new. Ever since the olden days when this tradition was integrated into our culture, there's been a fascination, where we've come to find new and creative ways to add a shade of blue into the day that two hearts unite in holy matrimony. From the wedding invitations, the bridesmaid's dresses, wedding flowers and unique surprise pops of blue on the day of the wedding, there's a whole range of unique design options and accents for a bride (and groom) to consider including into their wedding day when they want to honour it with something blue.

    Shades of Blue

    For your main source of inspiration, all you need to do is look at nature. Look to the skies (day or night), or take a look to the horizons over the seas to capture the beautiful glints of blues. This year Pantone has selected a few choice colours from the blue palette as wonderful choices for design. They include Classic Blue, Aquamarine,

    Grecian weddings inspired by Santorini, the sailing club and its perfect colour combinations of white, blue and a hint of red, to the soft hues of hydrangeas; you are well on your way to the perfect wedding look.

    Taking notes from the book of colours, you can also draw inspiration elsewhere from the likes of cultures, hobbies and more. Mixing the delightful and striking colours and mixing them with complementing hues, to adding illustrations to hone in your design and style theme, your wedding invitations will be your spokesperson of what the bid day will reveal.  Here are some choice designs of blue wedding invitations!

    On the Day Styles of Blue

    You've got your colours; you've sorted out your wedding invitations, probably even the main showstopper - the wedding dress. Now it's time to get cracking on the blue wedding accents - what flowers will you be using, what decor items will reflect your shade of blue and more!  A great way to make an impression with your blue wedding colour scheme is to add linen into the game with table clothes for the dinner table and cocktail tables, to the napkin and seat covers/wraps setting the tone (literally).

    Unique Blue Wedding Accents

    If you do not want to make blue apparent in your wedding design accents, you're able to find clever, unique and interesting choices to add it in. Lace navy garter belts, fun socks, and the inside of an all white cake being a blue velvet cake!  These will be so much fun and will make for great photographs 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.

  • Save the Date Cards for Weddings

    Congratulations on your engagement, now the fun begins! With wedding planning underway and the wedding date being set, most couple send out save the date cards for the wedding as a courtesy to guests to set aside that date to attend what is known as the most important day of your lives – when your hearts beat as one!

    Save the Date Cards for Wedding by DreamDay Invitations

    At the start, save the dates were sent to out-of-town guests usually four to six months before the big day and considered good etiquette so they can plan out how they can attend accordingly. But this is also done for all wedding invitees especially if the wedding will be held out of the country or even during the holidays before the wedding invitations are sent two months before the wedding (eight months if it’s a destination wedding).

    You will find that save the date wedding cards are sent for destination weddings, three-day weekends and not to mention December weddings, or even peak travel times/seasons as a due courtesy!  Make sure to send your wedding save the dates during that time frame as if you send it earlier than six to eight months it may get lost in the clutter and if it’s sent after four months you might as well just send the invitations for the wedding and forget the save the date cards altogether.

    This pre-invitation to your wedding being mailed to your intended wedding guests also acts as an announcement of the wedding and as a notice to them to expect a wedding invite in the near future. Sending a wedding save the date allows your wedding guests enough time to make arrangements for travel, sort out absence from work to even saving up cash to attend the big day (if it’s out of town or a destination wedding).

    One thing to make sure is that you need to know who you are definitely going to invite for the wedding because once the save the dates are sent, there’s no turning back because a wedding invitation will need to be sent soon after. Go through your guest list once and twice over before you commit each guest to the wedding!

    With many wedding save the date ideas, styles and designs available to you, there are many ways in which you can complement your wedding theme and match it to your wedding invites and stationery later on. With unique save the date ideas such as photo keepsakes and customised designs, you can really make an impression with your family and friends who will be invited to your dream wedding day.
