Simple, Elegant Wedding Invitation Designs
Your wedding stationery is the first glimpse your guests will get of your wedding day - be it Save the dates or Invitations. Your stationery is a great way to visually set the tone for your upcoming wedding. Your choice of colour, font, imagery and finer details will all reflect the style of wedding you are planning.
Setting the Tone
Have you ever received an invitation in the mail and been able to envision the wedding day? If so the invitation is doing its job perfectly. The invitation should exude the theme of the event to come.
Nothing says elegant and timeless like a perfectly minimal, toned back design. Whatever you do, be sure to apply this aesthetic to all of your stationery pieces and keep the tone consistent. From Save the Dates to Wedding Invitations to Thank You Cards, follow the elegant styling through with thoughtfully designed pieces that clearly convey your wedding aesthetic to your guests.
Paper & Envelope Choices
Along with the design style, the materials you choose for your stationery are a big part of the design itself. Choosing the right combination of textures adds the story and quality of your invitations. Thick, soft and luscious 100% cotton paper conveys a sense of luxury in a way that a cheap cardstock never will. Consider the thickest, highest quality stock for your invitations to make the best impression. There is something inherently elegant in materials that are understated in this way. Sometimes less is really more.
Consider also your envelope selection carefully; being the first glimpse of your wedding they make the initial first impression and set the tone for the rest of your stationery. By presenting a beautifully finished envelope your guests will know to anticipate something exceptional. Nothing says classic like an elegant pure white envelope in a premium heavyweight paper. 100% cotton envelopes are soft and supple to touch as well, adding to your guests' initial experience.
Pair your stationery pieces with finishing touches that show extra thought and care. These need not be showy or over the top - something as simple as matching fonts for the delivery address printing can be the perfect finishing touch for elegant minimal designs.
