Real Weddings: Fall in Love Invitations

Choosing an invitation inspired by the season can be festive and stylish.

One of our unique fall designs was created for a Midwest couple, Cara Mia and David, who hosted their event at a Missouri country club in October. 

The suite design combines the elements of light, leaves and deep brown branches with the pearlescent Quartz cover and really captures the crisp air, vibrant colors and stunning sunsets - everything they love about fall.

Personalization is in the details. 

We had fun with the response postcards and added a few humorous choices. This can be a great way for couples to inject their personalities into the invitations, while also helping to get guests excited about the big day! Including meaningful details within the design makes it more memorable.

REAL WEDDINGS: Latin-American Vow Renewal

A vow renewal is a way to reaffirm your commitment to each other -- whether you are celebrating a milestone, or just want to finally experience the big wedding you didn't have the budget for when you were younger. No matter the reason, its a beautiful way to celebrate your marriage.

Rosa and Luis decided to renew their vows in July 2016. They chose a destination wedding in Jesús María, Jalisco, a small town located 2 hours east of Guadalajara, Mexico. A place that no doubt holds great sentiment for their families. For the invitations, we created a classic color combination of champagne, black and red accents, with a little Latin flare.

This custom invitation features a beautiful patterned pocket in red on champagne shimmer. The pockets shown here are available in a variety of colors, textures and patterns. Create your own look and infuse your culture with custom invitations by Affordable Wedding Invites.
A black linen backing layer adds another level of sophistication to the Spanish verse printed in black on matching champagne insert. Instead of response cards, a pass card is provided to guests for entry to the celebration. 
The invitation notes padrinos - or sponsors for the wedding, who are all recognized in different parts of the ceremony - A Spanish wedding custom.
Coordinating design was used to create prayer cards for the ceremony.
The pocket is secured with a hand-assembled tag and bow combination adds a unique personal touch.

Another option for dressing up the prayer cards with a ribbon and rhinestone buckle.
