Your wedding save the dates, invites, etc. should reflect you and your future groom's style. They give the guests invited a little peak of what they might expect when attending your wedding. You can choose to have an invitation that stems from your wedding colors, or from the theme of your wedding. The fun in picking an invitation is to think outside the box, and to be unique. You may even want to use some of your engagement pictures in the invitation. My daughter had a destination wedding where we invited just a few family members.(due to cost) She created a save the date note that we rolled up into a bottle with a few small sea shells and a small paper umbrella, and mailed these in a small cardboard box. She had a reception when we got back to celebrate with family and friends that she sent a turquoise and parchment brown invitation that had her beach theme reflected. We were also able to decorate the reception tables with her pictures from the wedding. Very fun and unique! I have a Pinterest board that has all types of ideas of wedding invitations and save the date invites to help get your creative juices flowing. Enjoy!
Once you have decided where you are going to have your wedding and reception, you will want to pick out a theme, or colors. You may have already done this when you selected your venue. Picking a theme and colors early in the planning will give you time to choose bridesmaid's dresses tuxes for the guys, and all the other details for your special day. Your theme, or colors may depend on the time of year. Red is always beautiful for a Christmas wedding. Pastels are pretty in the spring. I have created a Pinterest board that has a variety of wedding themes and colors. Some of them are really fun, where others are more traditional. What ever you choose, remember it is your special day so have fun and do something you will always remember.
Wedding Themes ( I linked this one a couple of days ago when I discussed venues, but wanted to link it again.)
I love to capture those special moments in people's lives through photography. I am constantly looking at a scene and thinking how could that work in a photo session, or what angle would work to capture the beauty that God has blessed us with.
