Red Wedding Invitations and Stationery

Colour Themes for Wedding Invitations and Stationery

Colour Themes for a Wedding

We have previously written an article on colour schemes, but that was many years ago and since then we have introduced many new wedding invitations and have made many more orders and have many more photos to share, so we thought we do an updated version.

Choosing a colour scheme for your wedding day is one of the most important decisions as this colour will be involved in most parts of the planning including the flowers, bridesmaid dresses, cake and reception decoration.

Here are some of the main colours used on our wedding stationery starting with neutral shades like white, ivory and cream up to hot pinks and orange.

Neutral Theme

This theme is one of the most popular at the moment and can include, White, Ivory, Cream, Beige, Blush, Taupe and Tan

Gold

A very popular colour during 2015 and is carrying on into 2016. Glitter has become hugely popular with couples going for bright gold or champagne glitter to add sparkle to their wedding day. Some of the gold shades available are Champagne, Old Gold, Antique Gold, Light Gold and Bright Gold.

Silver & Grey

Silver has also become a popular colour which is mainly due to the popularity of the glitter card. Many stationers have designs using this and couples are using this as a background and are adding their chosen colour to accompany the glitter.

Grey is a popular accent colour for couples and is often seen being used with light pinks, greens, yellows and purples. Some of the shades used are Slate, Gunmetal, Silver and Dove Grey.

Lace Wedding Invitation with Pearls in Grey – Elegance Wedding Stationery

Lace Wedding Invitation with Pearls in Grey

Our Elegance collection has been on our books for around two years and is slightly different to the classic lace and pearl wedding invitations you see on the market. We found a stunning lace pattern with droplets and used it with a coloured background and large individual pearls. At the bottom there is a monogram and the words wedding invitation.

The Wedding Invitations

Laura and Ashley contacted us last year about ordering wedding invitations and their on the day stationery in the Elegance design in a soft grey and had loved the samples they had received. They chose to have a pocket style invite in a light grey and asked us to make a table plan with matching menus nearer to their wedding in December last year.
