Formal Wedding Invitations!

Hey Everyone!

Today we will be going off of the idea of the formal wedding theme and going towards the idea of the invitations for those weddings. As I mentioned in my previous post, this invitation set up and style is more different then we had seen from earlier examples.

This example below is from a wedding that went a very simple route. I believe this was a good design decision throughout. This is because this theme is so simple and elegant, the invitations should be too.

The flowers are cut out but only some parts of them are and then the rest is a pattern that is put onto the paper. These invitations give the feel of something that is simple and not wild. These formal weddings are meant to be serious and the invitations should convey that to the guest.

This invitation is so simple but so powerful. The hierarchy of this invitation is the flowers because the red flowers are a big part of the actually wedding.

It is so important to stick with your theme of the wedding from the start. If you want your guests to know what the feel and theme of the wedding is, the only way they will really know that is through the save the dates and invitations that you send out. If you have a specific way that you want your guests to act or you want them to wear something then you have to tell them that instead of them guessing.

Have you ever been to a wedding that was formal themed? What theme colors were there? Did the invitation make the theme and feeling clear?

Thanks for reading about this week’s formal theme!

Stay tuned for more wedding posts next week.

Formal Wedding Theme Week!

Hello Again Everyone!

This week I am going back to themes! I am going to focus on the theme of red and black colored weddings. I feel like this could be seen as a very formal way of doing a wedding. So, this one is for the formal bride to be!

This first picture below is one of my favorite examples of a formal black tie wedding with everything from the cake to the brides mate dresses. This theme could be seen as a dark and not as much fun theme. However, a pop of color, like the red is a great way to spice things up and make it a bit more fun.

I’m in love with the small pops of color of red in every aspect of this wedding. From the few flowers on the cake to the shoes on the brides mates, it all flows together very nicely.

This next set of pictures is bring in the formal wedding them a little differently, there is still red though. However, instead of the black everywhere, there is more of white that compliments the red color.
