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

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.

Glamour Wedding Invitations and Stationery – Lace and Sparkly Diamante Embellishment in Dark Purple, Aubergine

Glamour Wedding Stationery in Aubergine

Our Glamour collection has been on our books for many years now and is really popular with couples. It is made with luxurious lace, a large satin bow and finished with a sparkly, diamante embellishment. The inside of the invite has a coloured backing card to match the ribbon.

Caroline and Nicholas got in contact as they loved the sparkly side of the Glamour design and wanted a table plan and matching place cards made. They chose to have ivory card and a dark purple, aubergine ribbon which really showed off the embellishment.

The Order

They needed a table plan for five tables plus the top table so our small plan (up to eight tables plus the top) was perfect. They liked the landscape style with the header and top table at the top and one row of five tables underneath.

We also made matching place cards. These are folded cards measuring 10 x 10 cm with the guest name printed and lace, the satin ribbon bow and diamante embellishment.
