Theme Wedding Invitations

Theme wedding invitations are a fantastic way to set the tone for your wedding celebration. Take some time to consider your wedding theme. Before you head out and make a purchase, you will need to keep in mind the importance of actually being able to pull off your theme. For example, if you are going for a black tie, formal event, be sure this is going to happen before you order the invitations. Most theme wedding invites have a design to be less restrictive, though. Nevertheless, the theme that you place on your wedding invite is often the clue that your guests have on what they should expect.

What Your Invite Says

Invitations for your wedding may state the facts about your wedding ceremony and reception, but chances are good that they also provide much more information than that. Specifically, the invitation should provide an idea on how formal or informal your event is. A handwritten invitation, bought out of the store stock, indicates a house warming or backyard wedding reception. A formally printed, very elegantly designed invitation tells your guests that you are having a much more elaborate event. Find the invitation that accurately depicts your event.

  • Are you using a cake topper that features a fun character or a funny theme? This could be an indication of your wedding theme, too.
  • Colors are often an important part of a wedding theme. The colors show up in the flowers, the bridal dresses and much more.
