“Organic “- inspiration
Finding inspiration is maybe the most challenging part of designing your invites. Wedding blogs, magazines and Pinterest are for sure very helpful. On the other hand, the more you check, the more you like and the more you like, the harder the choice is. 😉
So, as my second post in the “wedding papers”-topic, I collected some tips for you about inspiration, ideas and themes. Hopefully they help you kick-off the project.
The theme of the wedding
Probably you are in the easiest position if you already have a wedding theme in mind. Nowadays it´s a trend to organise the big day around one theme, like French country-style, vintage, organic or bohemian. In these cases, I would suggest to pick two or three little elements that best represent the main idea. For example, in case of a nautical beach wedding, navy blue color, a boat or a compass illustration could communicate the subject very well.
“Modern minimalism” – inspiration
If the venue has a special place in your heart, show it also on your invites. An illustration of a romantic old chapel, a greenhouse or a nice barn can make your stationery very unique and personal.
Seasonal colors and flowers are always safe ideas and they can be easily incorporated in the paper design. I collected here some of Pantone´s color picks for 2016. For Winter wedding inspiration here is one of my older posts.
For floral inspiration, I found an amazing series of posts on Green wedding shoes, that I can highly recommend you to check out. I just love the beautiful boards they created for Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter flowers.
I think that above all, you should choose a design that represents you as a couple. It may be a memory you share, an important place or a hobby you have in common. When you focus on these details, you can create authentic and meaningful designs.
“Artistic” – inspiration
I hope that these tips and the photo-collages help you find some inspiration. 🙂
