Themed weddings can either be flawless or fall short. Sticking to an overall style as opposed to a niche theme can sometimes serve as a cushion for a themed wedding. Furthermore, when it comes to themed weddings or parties in general – the options are endless and the outcome will be solely dependent upon your vision and commitment level.
Since we know many brides have an overall style they try to stick with, but many also love a good theme, we’re going to throw down some advice that meets somewhere in the middle and since we’re teaming up with Basic Invite to chat invitations for your special day we’re going to bring it full circle by focusing on three things to consider when designing themed wedding invitations.
Wedding season is slowing down, but brides getting hitched this fall and winter are just now sending out their invites. So, what better theme for the seasons to come than a woodland wedding? Now, here’s what to consider…
What Does Woodland Mean To You
Word association is a funny thing and when it comes to themes (especially if you’re going so far as to request a certain attire or creating a menu to play things up) you want to be sure what you’ve chosen is clear – to everybody! What do woodland wedding invitations mean to you? Does woodland mean a storybook fairytale full of woodland creatures and tea after dinner or does it mean woodsy, rustic mountain views with a steak dinner and craft beer?
Subtle or Distinct
This is where things get interesting! Subtlety in regards to themed wedding invitations means a hint of what’s to come. For example, a real wood wedding invitation, real wood invites are not only gorgeous, but they’re a subtle way of giving guests a peek inside your big day. If you’re taking the more obvious route option for an invitation design that actually includes a tree or forest design, twinkle lights or stars, or even little woodland creatures. Have fun with it!
Color is a great way to incorporate a niche theme into your wedding invitation without using designs or patterns. For a woodland wedding go for neutral earth tones like creams, greens, and even a hint of orange. If you want to add an extra pop to your design go with some foil stamped details in gold, silver, or rose gold.
All of these helpful tips can apply to any themed wedding.
