Are you struggling to pick a wedding style or theme?
It should be fun to choose a theme, not a tough task. If you get stuck, here’s an easy tip: let the season guide you!
Once you choose a date and share the news through save the dates, you’ll want to start shopping for a wedding invitation you like based on the season of your nuptials.
Wedding Invitation Ideas by Season
For instance, if your wedding is in October, you’ll borrow your favorite elements of fall and tie it into your decor. First, find an invitation style that resonates with you. Choose colors that draw you in, flowers that you love, and elements you can borrow for the rest of your decorations.
I’m imagining crisp leaves, rich jewel tones in burgundy and sage, tablescapes with pumpkins and gold-rimmed tealight candles, rich botanical floral centerpieces infused with pampas grass and dried wildflowers, and a matching bouquet.
It all begins with the invitation, the perfect launching place to pinpoint which color, tone, and style will work for you and your partner.
And when you find the perfect invite, use it to guide you throughout your entire planning process. Borrow its rich colors, experiment with textures, deck out your tables with floral centerpieces to match, and even choose the wedding party attire colors based on the stationery you select.
You can take it one step further and choose coordinating stationery pieces like place cards, escort cards, menus, programs, and more for a completely cohesive wedding.
