Wedding Invitations

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011 Weddings Comments Off

I was speaking to my wife the other day about our wedding and the topic of invitations came up. Our wedding invitations had Calla Lilies on them and my wife had decided to continue on with that “theme” and incorporated Calla Lilies into our centerpieces as well.

Wedding invitations can be classic, fun, themed or even humorous to you and your guests. The wedding invitation sets the tone for the event and we often see that our Wedding Couples decide to incorporate some element of their invitation into their overall celebration.

For example, if your wedding invitations incorporate some element of the beach, which is a common theme in Southern California…


Then you could keep this theme going for your wedding favors and send your guests off with individual bottles of sea salt.

One crafty bride even created a personalized card box for her ceremony.

Or if you are more of a Wine Connoisseur and plan on incorporating that passion into your invitations

You could then carry the theme into your escort cards by using wine corks to hold them in place

Or again into your wedding favors with a gift that guests will use over and over again!

For those couples who have always dreamed of a Winter Wonderland Wedding

It becomes easy to incorporate this element in your Wedding Cake, Cupcakes or Dessert Station for a look that is flawless from start to finish!


And who could forget those that are “Kids at Heart” and envision a Carnival Theme for their big day?

One bride decided to carry this theme out in a customized candy station that brought out the inner child in everyone!

Or you could always bring the carnival to your celebration by tray passing elegant mini versions of carnival fare such as fries, hot dogs, cotton candy and funnel cakes!


There are thousands of wedding invitations out there, so it might be overwhelming when you first start looking! Be sure that the invitation you select reflects both the bride and groom and the type of celebration you envision for your special day. From there the possibilities are endless!

Once you select your invitations please share with us if you plan on incorporating any ideas into your celebration. We would love to hear from you!
