Ideas for Unique Spring Wedding InvitationsAshley 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.
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.
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.
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.
