Your Wedding Invitation…
A bride’s wedding day is typically a day she’s dreamed about since she was a little girl. Because the wedding invitation sets the tone for the entire event, I aim to make sure the invitation is just the beginning of the most important day in the bride and groom’s new life together.
It’s All About the Happy Couple
When the bride and I meet, I like to get a sense about her personality and her style. Who is she? Who is her fiancé? What attracted them to each other? Since the wedding invitation is the first thing a guest sees about how the bride and groom interact together, it’s important to make a good impression and get them excited about the upcoming nuptials.
What Does Your Dream Day Look Like?
When designing the wedding invitation, it’s important to understand if the wedding is going to be simple or elaborate, traditional or contemporary, at a local venue or a destination event, a large party or an intimate affair? All of these elements go into the design. The wedding invitation not only reflects the bride and groom, but should reflect the celebration as well.
We Will Make the Invitation Come Alive
When thinking about the design elements of the invitation itself, there are countless possibilities that can reflect the bride and groom’s personal sense of style and taste. Metallic and shimmer papers add sophistication. Suede paper can show a bride and groom’s soft and elegant side. Ribbon and other adornments can reflect a sense of flair. Layering different papers can show that the bride and groom have different sides to their personalities.
The Beauty Is In The Details
Perhaps the most important way to make a statement on an invitation is through font selection. A font can say “luxurious,” “modern,” “sophisticated,” “understated,” or any one of many other descriptions. Careful and thoughtful placement of fonts is essential to setting the mood of the invitation. I have hundreds upon hundreds of fonts to choose from, and each portrays a different feeling and state of mind.
