My sister had a wedding few months ago and asked me to help with the invitations. She couldn’t choose what design and what wedding invitation ideas to use for them. I browsed in the web and came across the website Wedding Speeches For All where they give advices for brides and grooms, their friends and relatives how to deliver speeches, choose among the variety of different ideas, and other stuff related to wedding ceremony’s organization. Thanks to this helpful website I found out few different tips which can be used for as a brilliant design guide for making invitation cards. Since a lot of my friends on Facebook asked me about what we chose for these invitations, and were constantly asking my advices because a lot of them liked the design we selected, I decided to summarize in brief in this article the description of the most popular ideas used for wedding cards with invitations.
Wedding invitation cards in Art Deco style
This style is characterized by bold Art Deco geometric patterns which were very fashionable in the 1920s. They will cost practically nothing which is perfect for those couples who want to have good looking invitation cards and have to stick to the tight budget. These Art Deco patterns look like simple geometric figures and letters in black ink which are usually printed on colored or metallic paper.
Invitations for a wedding in floral patterns
In 1970s it was quite widespread to use as wedding invitation ideas floral patterns with bold and catchy colors. For instance, you may use floral patterns in Chinese style depicting cherry blossoms. They symbolize love, innocence and loyalty and will fit perfectly such occasion as wedding.
If a bride or a groom has ethnic background then it will be more reasonable to choose culturally meaningful by design invitation cards for inviting guests to visit a wedding ceremony. While designing such invitations you can ask to include symbols, patterns and themes which reflect families’ history, like African motives or Chinese symbols – dragons, hieroglyphs, etc.
Modern style for wedding invitation ideas
Futuristic types and abstract patterns in modern style will fit those invitations which symbolize a union of two talented artists. I chose this type of invitations because both – my sister and her husband – are musicians and they like different extraordinary things. Their invitations were printed in fluorescent paper in bold typed geometric letters. Metallic or reflective paper and unusual types refer to this particular way of designing wedding invitation cards.
If a bride chooses any of floral patterns for invitations or thinks about adding some sentimental notes to their design, advise her to include silhouettes – for instance a gentle embodiment of a married couple’s silhouette. This will look stunning and will make invitation cards refined.
As for the color scheme used for wedding invitations it should be chosen considering the colors of a bride’s dress and her maids’ gowns. It is very popular nowadays to use a color palette of purple and silver shades while creating invitation cards for guests. However, there is no a strict etiquette for wedding invitations’ coloring so you can select any colors you wish.
