How to Choose your Wedding Invitation?

Choosing Your wedding day invitation can be as simple or complex as you want to make it to be depending on two factors: how much time you wish to spend researching different designs and whether you already have specific idea for your invitation.

Wedding invitations can be simple and beautiful with classic type and high quality stationary.

Also there are a range of finishes you can use to create interesting effects for the wedding invitation.

So the three elements: design, paper style and quality and stationary techniques are what affect the style of wedding invitation. Less is more for wedding invitations and design in general but equally choosing a classic style can make a wedding invitation appear too impersonal.

The desired effect is to incorporate cues in the wedding invitation that subtly reveal the couple’s personality. The following elements help achieve these effect

Emboss your letters

Embossing is a stamp-like effect on paper, making a relief effect that allows elements to stand out. I love the idea of typography embossing on hard paper. You can also use embossing for special effects like a wedding invitation map. I love this embossed world Map by Stich Press.

Inside envelope design

I absolutely love the idea of having a flower peaking out a wedding invite envelope like these designs from the South Bound bride. This would be the perfect finishing touch to a classic invitation

Transparent paper

Ever wanted to create a monochrome invitation where the type matches the color of the paper? The best way to do it is by printing on transparent paper.
