Okay so what are we thinking about invitations peeps? Going beyond what should and shouldn’t be included in your invitation, the invite is so important because it sets the tone for your wedding.
That’s right, save the dates and invitations are the introduction to your wedding. They should reflect the style that your wedding will adopt, allowing your guests to get a sense of what they might expect from your wedding day. And it’s so important to think about this when choosing your wedding invitations because it ensures that people will get the right impression about your wedding day, allowing them to get excited but also to dress and act accordingly.
If you’re planning to have a super chic wedding that’s all about style than you want your invites to reflect that. You’ll inspire your friends and family to make the effort, ditching the converse and braces in favour of a more sartorial vibe.
Of course this works the other way too, vintage, boho and festival weddings should all be introduced with well considered invitations reflecting their respective styles. But today my mind is in style land and having spent the morning swooning over the delightfully extravagant designs by Adorn Wedding Invitations. These 14-carat-gold-plated wedding invitations are absolutely stunning. Yep that’s right, 14-carat-gold-plated! Now there’s something unique.
I was having a bit of an Ugly Betty moment over the weekend and somehow came across these amazing gold invitations that were used at the wedding of Vanessa Williams (who plays Wilhelmina Slater). I’m pretty certain she set the tone with these beauties, her guests must have been suitably excited at receiving these stunners.
Oh and guess what, today is Vanessa and her husband Jim’s anniversary, so all that leaves me to say is happy anniversary.
