Wedding Invitations in Jacksonville and St. Augustine
Wedding invitations can set the tone for the wedding! They are the first experience your guest is going to have with your wedding day. Putting in some extra thought and creativity can wow your guests!
Luckily at the bridal shows Premier Bride or Jacksonville has sponsored – we have some fantastic Invitations and Stationary vendors. If your wedding is in Jacksonville or St. Augustine; check out Kouture Kreations, Pineapple Post, Impressions or Cadeau.
Here are some tips for your invites;
Belted and bedazzled. Dress up your invites with a belt or sash, wrapped around the middle. Use a dramatic black & white damask-patterned sash or a sheer metallic ribbon for an elegant, formal look, or a vibrant grosgrain ribbon with a brass buckle for a playful, unique touch. Think about the theme of your wedding and use a fabric or a print that is a reflection of it. Add a small jewel or charm to the top of the invite for a little extra sparkle and interest.
Special delivery. Consider surprising a few special guests with a hand-delivered invitation to your wedding. Hire a tuxedo-clad gentleman, send a singing telegram, or deliver with a bunch of gorgeous fresh flowers. Of course you probably can’t do this for every guest…but picking a special few will definitely leave a great impression!
Think outside the envelope. An invite needs to inform your guests of what, when and where… and this doesn’t mean it must be on paper, in an envelope! Be creative and don’t be afraid to be different. Here are a few fun ideas to spark your creative juices: send a message in a bottle for a beach wedding, use a unique scroll invitation sent in a beautiful box, or make paper airplanes or kites out of your invites for an informal, outdoor summer wedding. Think about a special activity or interest you share and get creative with your invitations!
Calligraphy. Although traditional, you can never go wrong with using a calligrapher for your invites. Many calligraphers are thinking outside envelope and getting creative with their craft.
And after you send out the invites….
Framing your wedding invite is a great way to add personalized “art” to your home while preserving those special memories, and including a mirror with it makes it practical and useful as well!
