While not the most traditional time for weddings, there can be no doubt that winter is a magical time of year to walk down the aisle together. Already a season of celebration, there’s plenty of sparkle and you might even get a snow-shower for confetti, but first you need to sort out those winter wedding invitations.
Where to start?
These invitations will be your guest’s first peep at what’s planned for this special day, so you want to make sure they impress. Ask yourself what sort of wedding is yours? Is it to be a formal time-honoured occasion or a more modern event? Your own style might be truly unique. Specialist stationers can craft personalised wedding invitations tailor-made to your taste. This is a wonderful way to make your winter wedding invitations one of a kind.
Don’t be overawed by the task at hand. You’ve chosen a romantic winter wedding, so let the season shine on your wedding stationery. Take your pick from a choice of themes, styles, colours and typography, and we’ll soon find that winter glow you’re after.
All you need to know is right here!
When it’s frosty outside, floral themes might not be your first thought, but perennial pansies and Christmas roses can be a fabulous choice for winter wedding invitations. Let your invites ring out the season with winter bells or twirling ribbons and swooping snowflakes.
The charm of a theme is you can play it out across all your wedding stationery, crafting a collection. A good stationer will often offer discounts on multiple kinds of stationery, so spread your winter theme across your wedding save the dates and RSVPs too.
With your theme in place it’s time to add a sprinkle of style. You can glam up your invites with gold foil blocking and glitter to create the glimmer of winter parties.
If you want to create a more vintage feel, celebrate the season with water colour painting for a subtle snowed out style.
From glittering gold and silver bows, to cool blue skies and bright festive-red flowers, winter has a cornucopia of colours to choose from. A handy hint to remember – if you pick strong contrast colours, they’ll really pop on the backdrop of a snowy white card.
With so many fabulous fonts to select from, why not pick one to complement your theme? The twirls and curls of calligraphy are especially suited to a traditional winter wedding, or choose a bold and playful font for more contemporary invitations. It’s always worth remembering when deciding on your lettering to make sure it’s easy to read. A light font can easily get lost on a coloured card, so if that’s what you have in mind, you might consider using a bolder typeface.
With your design discovered, you’re ready to buy your winter wedding invitations. A good stationer will often offer free delivery and a quick turnaround on your order, but it’s always worth giving yourself plenty of time to spare.
