Having just gone through the wedding process, I thought I would touch upon selecting elegant wedding invitations including customized wedding invitations. Also included in this article are some helpful hints when creating your wedding invitation guest list.
It is always nice to set the tone of your wedding regarding who the two of you are and what you two want your wedding to be with your wedding invitation. For us, we wanted to have an elegant, heart warming wedding but still keep it fun and whimsical. One of the ways we did this was to work with a company that specializes with customized wedding invitations, A Papier. I have worked with Alyson and her team previously and her company was on my list when I wanted to send elegant wedding invitations for my wedding.
For our customized wedding invitations, we started by selecting the print style and the paper. For me, weight is everything when it comes to paper and I personally like a heavy-weighted wedding invitation. In addition, I selected letterpress printing because I believe this type of printing provides a sense of importance and adds to the look of elegant wedding invitations.
We decided in the beginning that our wedding colors were to be celadon and gold and we liked the multilayer look created by the three different types of papers used on our invite. The French satin ribbon that was applied by hand at each of the corners created a framed look to our invite and is another one of the benefits when selecting customized wedding invitations.
Finally, we created our own logo for our elegant wedding invitations. We took our initials and interlocked them with a heart!
