Hey darling! After our last post, we've decided to continue to give ourselves to you through regular posts that will hopefully inform and inspire you throughout the wedding planning or business building process (we will try to keep it even). We know that both of those stages in life can be stressful and overwhelming, and we only hope that by sharing our advice, we will be able to serve you as a friend and fellow woman.
Today we were thinking about how difficult it can be to decide what you'd like your wedding stationery to look like. It's easy to get caught up in a sea of beautiful invitations on Pinterest and just choose something that looks pretty, but we believe there's more to an invitation than beauty. Our focus is on intentionality when it comes to wedding invitations. We want your stationery to give your guests a preview of your wedding day in subtle and original ways.
First, think of every invitation you've ever gotten in the mail. Did you throw it away? Hang it on your fridge? Did you tear it open, or treat it like a piece of art? Our goal is for each of your guests to fall so in love with your invitation suite that they want to call you immediately with their excitement over it. Once you're on board with creating something beautiful, we find the little things that make you who you are and gracefully weave that into our designs.
Some ways to include personality and the wedding "preview" into your stationery is by choosing an accent color, possibly reflecting your wedding colors. If your wedding is going to be very cozy and intimate, maybe include a heartfelt note to each of your guests. If you're hosting your wedding in an art gallery and you and your future hubby are art fanatics, maybe choose a vellum overlay on top of a beautiful, abstract painting or drawing.
There are so many ways to infuse yourself and your wedding style into your invitations, you sometimes just have to get off of Pinterest, ask yourself a few simple questions, and leave the creating up to the professionals.
See our list of 7 questions to ask yourself to decide your invitation style below, and please don't be afraid to reach out for any suggestions or advice!
