Unique Spring Fling Invitations

Welcome to our March Blog Hop!

This month we are focusing on all things Spring to help you in the process of planning your wedding or event. Get ready for some great ideas, inspiration and how to as you move along through the blog hop.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Katrina McCullum at Made of Honor Weddings on Natalie’s Blog Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you make sure to see and learn from all of the articles featured here today.

Ideas for Unique Spring Wedding Invitations

Spring brings outdoor ceremonies in breathtaking locations such as gardens, state parks and beaches. If you are planning an outdoor ceremony or reception, be sure to note a secondary location for your guests on the invitations. You can use corner copy to make a special note in case of inclement weather. Learn more about how to prepare for inclement weather with Ashley Rae Events in this month's Blog Hop, and Liz Coopersmith at Silver Charm Events also has some great tips for weathering a Spring event, if you haven't already visited these stops on the hop.

Although popular, floral designs are not the only option to announce your Spring Fling with style. Below are some unique ideas to consider when searching for the perfect way to invite guests to join the celebration.

Impressive Papers:
Impress your guests with unique paper selections. Go Green and represent your love of nature with cotton, recycled or plantable seed papers. Mixing recycled papers with a soft pastel or vibrant hue adds a floral accent. Some brides choose to represent elements of the dress by choosing a textured paper or laser cut embellishment.

Less is more:
Designs that feature fonts point focus towards what is written. Inject your personality with an off-beat or quirky wording. Simplistic designs emulating watercolors and subdued hues, such as blush, taupe, and toasted almond give an air of minimalist elegance.

Shape it up!
If you’re looking to create a unique invitation, choose a special shape or cut-out style. From fancy frames to scalloped edges and custom shapes, there are so many options to create a style that's all your own.

Photo Bomb!
Use the back of the invitation to display your event info, while the front displays your favorite engagement photo. OR — you can simply include a photo print or choose a design that features a photo collage to add a personal touch.

Impressive Upgrades:
Add some sparkle with rhinestones, or bundle the invitations with ribbon, bakers twine or a custom wrap. Keep in mind - some embellishments may increase your postage cost or require upgrading to a boxed style.

Make it interactive:
Include a line for guests to request a special song. Advice cards are also a personal way to include guests in your day, and create a memorable keepsake.

Keep Hopping!
