During the fall season,
many couples are getting ready to get married; some are even planning parties
and celebrations ahead of time. For most couples, putting together invitations
for family and friends can be a fun and creative way to announce their upcoming
fall wedding. From picking out colors and fonts, to sorting pictures and
images, follow along in our blog to learn some tips and tricks to make your
fall wedding announcement stand out!
When forming the layout
of your card, consider a few things first:
The amount of
information (dates, times, location, etc.)
The size of your
card (large, small, etc.)
The number of
Font and text size
Laying down pictures on a
table, or inserting photos and text online can be beneficial when it comes to
arranging your invitation. Organize your card beforehand so you can get a
better visual of the final product!
If you’re planning to
have an autumnal photoshoot done with your significant other, pick out a few
places beforehand. For example, a pumpkin patch or a walkway with colorful
leaves and trees can be a wonderful fall background. Images may include: nature
portraits with your partner, a wedding sign with the date, and other autumn
Font and Color
Explore with different
fonts and colors to match your personal style. From soft oranges and yellows,
to natural reds and greens, a contrast of color (preferably two colors) can
make a big statement on your card. If you’re planning to have a harvest themed
wedding, then autumnal hues can really compliment your invitation. It can also
hint at the colors you’ll be using at your wedding too. Don’t forget to play around
with text and fonts to see which works best with your card size!

A lot of planning goes
into the design of your wedding invitations. From selecting an elegant and legible
font, to picking the size of your card, you can showcase your personality and
style to your guests while still including all of the necessary information. In
this month’s blog, we’re looking at how to design wedding invitations with a
few key steps to remember along the way!
Size and Print
First, you want to pick the
shape and size of the invitation; these specifications will give you a lot of
information and make the design process a little more worry-free. Depending on
your preference to larger or smaller cards, this can determine how much
information you can fit, as well as other pictures and memorabilia of you and
your partner. It can also determine your postage situation (if you’ll need to
pay extra costs for shipping).
Is your wedding casual?
Perhaps it’s a black-tie event? Pick a visual theme for your wedding
invitations that matches the tone/theme of your wedding. You’ll want to settle
on a style that reflects your personality as a couple. You might spend a few
days looking at options online, or maybe you already have a concept in mind. Design
elements such as color, typography and other style flourishes can
also be used for the actual event (including table cards and signage).
The font on your wedding
invitation can speak volumes. While script writing is a popular style for traditional
cards, modern designs can be just as sleek and sophisticated. While you are
thinking about typefaces, this is the perfect time to think about the words
going on the card. Pick a typeface that works with your actual letters.
(Sometimes a great font doesn’t look the way you like with certain letter
combinations.) Make sure to test different fonts with important information like
the date, time, and location of your wedding.
Gather up your favorite
photos as a couple to put on your card; this kind of display can make your
wedding invitation more personal. If you have custom photos from a shoot, then
be sure that they will fit the area of your card. You don’t want your images to
come out blurry or too small where no one can see them. High-quality and
high-resolution photos are the way to go!
Of course, there are so
many different ways you can express your creativity with a wedding invitation.
