Lets start with the basics….. You need to consider the time of year your getting hitched! And most importantly, YOUR VENUE!
Important wedding services such as Wedding Invitations will follow shortly, but often brides and grooms pick their wedding venue and colour schemes/themes separately with no thought to the beauty and existing decore their wedding venue has to offer. For instance, you’re getting married in a beautiful chic hotel. The hotel is decorated with stunning glass ornaments, a marble black floor with accent of gold and heavy framed black mirrors.
Do you have keep with your Royal Blue theme with accents of yellow and Raffia bows??
Probably not. Be sympathetic to your venue and it’s surroundings; Go with the flow not against it.
So what about the time of year? With the most popular month of weddings happening in July it’s a race to get that perfect venue booked, and deposits put down.
So now is the time to consider your colour scheme. Think pastel lilac with white organza, floral colours in jam jars!! But wait! How could you possibly express this in your Wedding Invitations. They are the FIRST thing your guests will see and you don't want to bore them with yet ANOTHER Cadburys Purple wedding invitation landing in their door step. Make a statement! Tell your guests what your wedding day will be full of, by inspiring them! Go crazy and ask your wedding invitation designer if they could create something to match your day by using a bespoke wedding invitation service. How about those Jam Jars? Have your wedding stationer work with your florist to send your guests jam jars with a few of your summer flowers and your wedding invitation scroll neatly tucked inside with a white organza ribbon wrapped around. Now that's a statement and will make your guests swoon with gooeyness!
