Setting a Unique Tone With Your Wedding Invitation


Most couples nowadays look forward to having a wedding day that is unique in everyway from the reception venue to the bridal gown. Whatever kind of wedding reception you may choose to host, whether it is barefoot on the beach, a picnic in the park or a more stylish affair in a grand ballroom, you should be as creative with your wedding invitations as you are with the rest of your wedding preparations. Designing your wedding invitations to reflect the ceremony itself is a novel and unique way to set the tone of the reception.

Different Strokes for Different Folks

These days you are apt to see wedding ceremonies as varied as the bridal couples themselves. They run the gamut from ultra traditional church weddings to absolutely modern contemporary receptions and from ultra formal affairs held in state-of the art ballrooms to casual weddings hosted in a shack by the beach.

Here are some factors to take into consideration when designing your wedding invitation to match the tone of your wedding:

The first thing you need to do is analyse your guest list, go over it several times.It is very easy to get carried away and invite everyone you know, but you have to be realistic. Find out how many guests the reception can cater for and use that as a starting figure. Then work out the cost per head and find out what the overall cost will be for the full list. Now you can decide how much you want to spend on your guests and how many you can invite.

The color scheme of the wedding – Most bridal couples go through great lengths to ensure that everything, from the bridesmaids dresses to the flowers and all other decorations for the wedding are in sync with the color scheme of the wedding. Why not go the extra mile and let the wedding invitation reflect the wedding color scheme?

The reception venue – If you are planning on hosting a very formal wedding reception, you may want to choose a formally-worded gold or ivory invitation with a subtle design and a matching envelope. A wedding reception that is being hosted in a wide open field full of wildflowers would warrant a more casual and flowery invitation; the tone should stay casual throughout, even in the wording of the invite. A classy white embossed invitation is perfect for a traditional all-white wedding.

Cheerful pastel invitations would be more indicative of an informal spring wedding whereas red and white invitations are the perfect lead-in to a Valentines Day wedding.

Gold engraved invitations with a decorative burgundy edging and burgundy wordings would perfectly complement a classy evening wedding set in a backdrop of cream and gold. The only thing burgundy could be the bridesmaids gowns and the wedding bouquet.

The Importance of Setting the Tone with your Wedding Invitation

While most family and friends would be aware of the impending marriage, not everyone knows what kind of reception you are planning on hosting. Your wedding invite is in effect the first point of contact between you and your guests. A wedding invitation designed to reflect the reception is like giving your guests a hint of what they can expect at your reception. This sneak-peek is sure to whet the curiosity of your guests and do much to ensure the success of your wedding day.
