When it comes to planning a wedding, everything needs to be just perfect. It is your special day after all and you only get one of them, so every little detail needs to work in harmony. When planning your wedding, your venue, your dress and your theme will likely come first. But thinking about your wedding invitations should be important too; these are the very first glimpses your guest will get into what your big day is going to be like.

So when choosing wedding invitations, it’s important to think about design. For some weddings, especially fusion weddings, finding the right invitation design can be tricky. You need something that will reveal a little clue about your theme / colour scheme or just the style of your wedding day. But you want the invitation to look smart and elegant without being too over the top.
Here are some tips on choosing the right design for your wedding invitations:
Know your theme/style – whether you want a theme for your wedding or you just want to have a particular style of wedding (elegant, traditional, modern, luxurious), it’s always a good idea to have this in place from the start. Then you can start to think about feeding this look across all areas of your wedding, from the flower arrangements to your invitations.
Choose your stationery style – choosing the right wedding stationery is important. There are so many different invitation styles to choose from; one page invite, mounted card invites, pocket fold invitations, a traditional card invite or something a little more dramatic such as a message in a bottle of a scroll.
Think about the words you want to write – what’s the tone of voice that would best represent you and your groom? If you’re having a traditional wedding, your words might be more formal. If you’re having a relaxed and fun wedding, perhaps a more playful tone would work. Whatever you choose, this is something that you and groom should decide on together.
Add the finishing touches – when it comes to adding that final touch, it’s important to remember that not everyone wants embellishments and adornments. If you like simple, unfussy designs, stick to what you’re comfortable with and leave the frills to everyone else. If you’re all for lavishness and making an impact, add little touches to your invitations such as diamantes, gems, lace or bows, ribbon ties or other little embellishments.
