One of the first items a couple agrees upon is their wedding style and vision. As you scour for inspiration from online sources and magazines you may start to think “How do I bring this design aesthetic to my real life wedding?”
A great place to start is with your wedding stationery. The first visual of your wedding that your guests receive are your wedding stationery pieces. This is the perfect place to set the tone for your day. Once you select your invitation design you can carry this look through to all of your coordinating day-of décor pieces.
Bride and groom, Emily and Scott, were drawn to dark florals and hand-drawn elements and fell in love with this ‘Botanical Wreath’ invitation suite by Alethea and Ruth for Minted (below).
As soon as guests received their wedding invitation they could immediately get a feel for the vibe of their wedding day.
A great place to bring your style out of the mailbox and into your day is your wedding signage. Welcome your guests in style and add fun touches with your new married last name by bringing the colors and design aesthetic from your wedding stationery to your signage. A bunting banner strung across all of your tables makes a stunning entrance for your reception.
A huge part of the reception planning comes down to table design. Emily and Scott were able to replicate their floral invitation design and really bring it to life for their table décor. They selected crisp white flowers and clean neutral place settings. They brought the more moody elements of their look through on the guest place cards and table runners. As an added bonus, they were able to customize their place and escort cards with guest name printing to match font elements of their invitation suite and add custom text to their table runners with their monogram. These little elements really help customize your wedding and make it your own while remaining consistent with style and look.
A perfect final place to carry your wedding invitation design through to your wedding day is your photo booth. Here is the time to really let loose and have fun while still staying consistent to your vision.
Emily and Scott were able to customize their photo backdrop with their initials, it is important to keep it simple and remember - your guests' heads and bodies will cut off any designs that are on the lower portion of the backdrop.
By bringing fonts, colors, and design elements from your wedding stationery throughout all of your day-of details the end result is a cohesive, personalized and beautiful look that is uniquely yours.
