Everything you need to know for every aspect of wedding planning!



Finding the perfect wedding invitations for your luxury celebration can be complicated! It’s important to find stationery and paper goods that are true to your wedding style and theme. But you also need to consider how they will photograph with your other wedding details! Many couples don’t consider how their details will look as a cohesive group. With so much to consider with wedding invitations, here’s a few insider tips to choose the picture perfect wedding invitations.

Decide on Your Wedding Theme

Before anything else, you’ll need to decide on the theme of your wedding day. But, I also know that sometimes that vibe changes as you finalize all of the details. With that in mind, choose a big overarching theme for your wedding day and use that for your invitation suite. Keep it simple so that it will fit perfectly with your other details as you finish gathering them. Here’s a few overall themes to consider while you begin planning:

  • Rustic/Country
  • Vintage
  • Elegant
  • Floral
  • Modern
  • Tropical

Wedding Invitations Colors

Once you decide on your general theme, choose the colors for your celebration! Try to keep the focus on the one color that you love most, with everything else as an accent. Here’s a couple of my favorite color combinations for wedding days!

Blue & White

This bride kept her invitations simple with a blue and white theme. If you tend to be indecisive, or you just like a lot of different styles and aren’t committed to one yet, go with something simple. The more simple, the more universal!

Pops Of Color

This bride knew exactly what type of style she wanted for her wedding! She used pops of red throughout her picture perfect wedding invitations that matched perfectly with her bouquet and other elements in her Mexican wedding. In addition, she was able to add other accent colors throughout her wedding that were also in her wedding invites!

Faded Tones

These picture perfect wedding invitations are a wonderful way to keep your wedding theme and colors subtle, while keeping the elegance you love. By having a faded tone of your wedding color of your invitations you are able to keep the focus of the wedding off of a color, and instead on an overall style.

Seek Professional Advice

When ordering your wedding invitations look for guides and help from the company you’re working with. More often than not, the company you order your wedding invitations from will have a professional designer, an invitation guide, or a template for you to seek inspiration from. Use the resources that are there for you!

You can also find calligraphers in your area to work with! Calligraphy is so much more than pretty handwriting. It’s about really creating something beautiful and unique for your wedding. Calligraphers and other hand letterers understand design concepts and how to collaborate with you overall wedding theme. You will be able to receive wonderful advice while supporting local businesses, too!

Photographing Your Picture Perfect Wedding Invitations

With so much thought and planning going into your wedding invitations, they deserve to be captured on your wedding day! Bring your wedding day together in a flatlay image with your wedding invitations and a few other details. These details will enhance your already gorgeous design, while incorporating your other thoughtfully planned out wedding elements.
