Wedding Invitations – the first impression

wedding invitationsWedding Invitations

Wedding invitations are a critical part of your wedding stationery as they are the first impression your guests will have of your wedding and they will introduce the theme or style of your wedding.

Current trends in wedding invitations include bold graphic prints and deep colors such as amethyst or burnt orange. Lace style cut-outs are also popular design motifs. ‘Green’ wedding invitations, made with recycled materials and natural embellishments such as dried flowers are very much in vogue.

Many couples are looking for envelope style wedding invitations as they want to include a number of inserts such as an RSVP card, a gift list card, accommodation details, and a map of the venue. In general the wording of wedding invitations is becoming less formal, and invites are often addressed from the couple rather than their parents.

Despite the popularity of e-mail, SMS, and social networking, electronic wedding invitations don’t really seem to be taking off. Although these are cheaper than traditional printed invites, you can use more varieties of media such as music or video, and they are more environmentally friendly, it seems that most people still prefer the formality of a printed wedding invitation.

Whether you make your own wedding invitations, order them from a top quality printer, or post them on Facebook, remember that your wedding invitations will create the first impression of your big day.
