Wedding Wednesday – Wedding Invitation Inspiration

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

I’m starting a new trend during this wedding season to help our newly-engaged-and-still-planning couples out at least once a week…It’s called Wedding Wednesday! So brides, get ready to be inspired with this unique collection of color palettes.

We all know it can be a daunting task to choose your wedding colors, or maybe just choosing a coordinate color after one color has been chosen. Your wedding doesn’t have to be matchy-matchy, however finding complimentary colors is essential in portraying a look of elegance on your big day.

This week’s inspiration comes directly from our Embossed Graphics Orchid Wedding Invitation Collection. This is one of our most popular EG wedding invitations, which comes at no surprise. This photo realistic invitation pictures vibrant purple orchids against a onyx (black) shimmer background paper which is layered atop of an ivory shimmer stock. This invitation is made from 145 pound card stock and all text is printed in white thermography (raised) ink. Just by picking the invitation first, take a look at all you can do with the vibrant colors and textures in this invitation…

Incorporate the orchid theme into your flowers and cake to recreate the actual flower. Have the groomsmen and bridesmaids wear purple or black accented clothing with maybe a single flower adorning it. Too “together”? Try going for simple black and ivory table linens and then just adorn each table with an orchid design or flower.

Stay tuned for more inspirational hues in upcoming weeks…
