Fall Wedding Invitation Ideas Worth Remembering This Season

Do we hear wedding bells this fall for you? Autumn is an excellent time to plan your wedding. The rustic golden colors are in their prime, so you can have the picturesque fairytale wedding that you have always wanted. We have some great fall wedding invitation ideas that you can incorporate into your wedding invitation to make it more creative and playful.

  • Using An Autumn Wedding Color Theme

Create coherence between the invitation and the wedding event. If your wedding decorations or bridal party dresses feature burgundy, chocolate brown, orange, or other similar colors, we recommend having your fall wedding invitations printed with the same color scheme. Therefore, you will have a pretty invitation that centers around your overall wedding palette.

  • Using Autumn Leaves

Fall leaves are regal and rustic and provide visually appealing shapes and colors for the wedding card. There is no limit to creativity when it comes to designing your wedding invitation. You can choose animated leaves with perfect vectors or even a leaf of the season impressed on the paper to make it more beautiful.

  • Using Ribbons

Ribbons are perfect decoration accessories for a wedding invitation when used right. A small bow at the top of the card or a ribbon spreading across the midsection of the card also adds an interesting touch to your fall wedding invite. You can also have a gold or transparent ribbon tied around the envelope.

Wedding Invitation Mistakes You Don’t Want to Make

People use all of their creativity to design the perfect wedding invite. Even though design plays a role in saving the best memories of your life on a card, it is important to pay attention to other details. We have some tips on what kind of mistakes you want to avoid while sending out wedding invitations to your family, relatives, and friends.

Mistake 1: Don’t put an incorrect start time on the wedding invite.

We understand that some of the people you know tend to be late and it is tempting to have them early. However, it’s advisable to always put the correct time of the ceremony on the wedding invite. If the ceremony starts at 5 p.m., expect your guests to come by 4:45 p.m. The last thing you want is leaving your guests hanging by waiting for the ceremony to start because of the incorrect time mentioned. 

Mistake 2: Not specifying the essential information on a wedding invite is a big NO.

Mention the correct date, time, and location of the ceremony among all the other important details on your wedding invitation. Get an information card as well to have all the other essential details like any pre-and post-wedding events, hotel information, dress code, and a link to your wedding website to avoid overstuffing the primary wedding invite with information.

Mistake 3: You don’t want to send the wedding invites too late.

The rule of thumb is to send your wedding invitations at least 8 weeks early. This gives time for your loved ones to clear their schedule and be with you on the happiest day of your life. You want to send them earlier than 8 weeks if it is a destination wedding. Your guests will have ample time to shop for their wedding attire and plan for any travel needs.

Mistake 4: Not providing any RSVP instructions.

Don’t forget an “RSVP by” date on your RSVP cards. The RSVP date should be at least two weeks before your wedding so you can have an accurate idea of how many people will be attending the wedding. This way, you can give your caterer a more accurate headcount. And the most important bit: Let guests know how to RSVP. Include a pre-addressed envelope that they can use to send back their reply, or direct them specifically to the email, phone number, or URL they should use to RSVP to your wedding.

Winter Wedding Color Schemes

From icy blues and deep greens to warm browns and soft reds, the stunning colors of the winter season are limitless and provide an exquisite palette for your winter wedding invitations. There are many classic and contemporary winter color schemes to choose from, with a lot of inspiration taken from the frosty landscape and foliage of the season. Follow along in our blog as we discuss a few examples of unique, yet sophisticated color palettes for your winter wedding invitations.

Shades of Blue

As the weather cools down, the colors of summer and autumn fade into the background and the icy blues and greys of winter emerge. You can envision the light blue reflections from snow and frozen lakes, as well as deep navy from the night sky. If you are leaning towards a wintry palette for your wedding, then a blue and gray color scheme is the perfect combination. Insert hints of silver for a pop of color to your invitation to make an impression on your guests.

Emerald Hues

The hues from a deep emerald green is a strong reminder of the foliage from the winter season. Paired with gold, the combination of colors present an overall elegant and regal tone for your wedding. As for the wedding invitation, don’t forget to include gold foiling to frame any details on your card. The invitation itself is an indication of what’s to be expected at your wedding destination, so going with colors like emerald and gold will suggest that greenery and foliage will be included.

Copper Tones

Heat up your winter wedding with copper and rose gold tones. These colors are reminiscent of wood and metal materials that you can find in the colder season. Furthermore, these particular shades are ideal for weddings held in a barn or rustic inn, where you can see an abundance of warm, neutral tones. If you decide on copper for your invitation, we suggest a contrast of color for the envelope with a deep gray or black. Your wedding invitation will remain warm and inviting, but still very modern.

Tips for Reducing Wedding Planning Stress

It’s no joke that wedding planning can be complex, extensive, and stressful. While it can be a very exciting process, many couples may feel lost and unsure where to start. Everyone wants their wedding day to go perfectly and remember it for the fun of it – not for the stress. Staying organized and planning things early will prove to reduce some of that burden. Here are some stress-saving tips to make the planning process much easier!  

Set a Realistic Budget

Regardless of how big or small your wedding is, it’s best to keep track of a realistic budget. Often times, couples find themselves spending much more than they expect and underestimating the final costs. Always ask for quotes and ballpark figures when contacting vendors and scouting out wedding locations. Another thing to consider is that local weddings versus destination weddings can have a large difference in cost. Try to finalize your wedding location first before deciding on other aspects.

Your budget, location, wedding date, and guest list should be decided at least 9 to 12 months in advance. We have a convenient wedding planning checklist that you can follow along here

Consider Your Stationery and Favors Early

Deciding on a design for your invitations, reception cards, and so on can take a long time – especially if you’re trying to plan around a theme. Remember to request for samples to aide in your decision making. Once you’ve decided on a design, always look out for easy to miss typos and have more than one person double checking for you before finalizing the printing. This will save you the hassle on extra printing costs and time!

Finalize your stationery and party favors early to allow time for production and shipping. Official wedding invitations can be ordered at least 5 to 6 months before the wedding date.

Send Out Invitations at the Right Time

Timing is important and you have to ensure that your guests have ample time to both receive and respond to your invitation. Save the date cards can be ordered 9 to 12 months in advance and sent out around 6 to 8 months before the date. As your wedding day approaches, the official invitations can then be sent out 2 months ahead of time or earlier. If you’re planning a destination wedding, these can also be sent sooner to allow guests to arrange time off from work and settle their affairs.

Rely on Professional Help

You don’t have to struggle alone with the burden of planning everything. At Forever Friends, we offer convenient and streamlined customization help to assist you with creating the perfect invitations, announcement cards, and more!

  • Invitations

Surprisingly invitations are often an overlooked detail and missed opportunity when planning the ultimate bachelorette party. An official bachelorette invite should explain the theme and include an itinerary, pack list, and a way for attendees to RSVP and contact the host if they have any questions. The more information the host can include on the invite, the less confusion and questions will arise.

  • Personalized Favors

Once the party is over nothing will serve as a better reminder than a couple of personalized party favors that the guests and bride-to-be can take with them to use at home. This often includes sashes, shirts, hats, glassware, pins, coasters, can coolers, and even cocktail napkins! Everything that’s intended for the bride to wear or use should be personalized with ‘Bride’ or ‘Future Mrs.’

  • Games

The laughs experienced at bachelorette parties are not soon be forgotten. Ensure the laughs don’t stop the entire night by filling it with fun, hilarious, and exciting games. Games like answering questions about the bride, bingo, mad libs, and would you rather are popular and easy to create.

Fan favorite items include hankies, mugs, drink koozies, cufflinks, hangers, shirts, and hats.

Party Accessories

Initiate the party right off the bat with some lively party favors! Gift your loved ones a flask, a bottle of liquor, a shot glass, a bottle opener or any other item that will get them ready to party with you.
