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

Blue Theme

There are many shades of Blue to choose from including Ice Blue, Navy, Midnight Blue, Cobalt, Royal Blue, Pale Blue, Baby Blue, Cornflower, Sky, Indigo, Iris, Steel and Sapphire.

Green Theme

Green has become a popular shade again, especially when used with the Burlap, Hessian and Twine in a Rustic Wedding theme. Sage green is the most popular choice, but we have seen an increase in Mint green recently. Some other shades of green are Apple, Bright Green, Olive, Pistachio, Sage, Hunter, Forest, Dark Green, Emerald, Jade, Lime, Mint and Teal.

Red Theme

Red wedding invitations are really popular for winter weddings when used with sparkling embellishments. We don’t make many Red invites throughout the year, but this year we haven’t used anything else on the winter stationery we have created.

The different shades of Red we have used. Burgundy, Crimson, Maroon, Raspberry, Bright Red, Pillar Box Red, Scarlet, Wine and Ruby.

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.

Vintage Lace and Crystal Wedding Invitation – Glamour Wedding Stationery in Pink

Glamour Wedding Invitation with Lace and Diamante Embellishment

Our featured design in this post is our Glamour collection with the customer ordering folded wedding invitations with matching place cards. The Glamour design consists of luxurious lace and a satin bow with a crystal cluster mounted on top of the ribbon. It if finished with the couples personal details and it is a popular choice with anyone using lace and also want a touch of sparkle on their wedding day.

The Wedding Stationery Order

Elise contacted us from Norway after seeing the Glamour collection and asked us to make her wedding invitations. She chose to have the design made in white with rose pink ribbon which looked romantic and really showed off the embellishment. For us this order was a little different as the couple are from Norway and needed all the wording printed in Norwegian.

Printing in another language is no problem and there is no extra cost for this service, all we ask is that you send the wording electronically so we can copy it over to our templates. We have made quite a few orders over the years in different languages including Greek, Russian, French, Spanish, Norwegian and German to name a few.

We also do place cards to match all of our wedding invites and in the Glamour design there are two styles to choose from. The first is with lace, a satin ribbon bow and the Glamour diamante embellishment or we can do them with just the lace and ribbon which is more budget friendly. We also print the guest names free of charge.

Vintage Wedding Invitation with Lace, Pearl and Satin ribbon – Prestige Wedding Stationery

Prestige Wedding Stationery
Vintage Wedding Invitation with Lace, Pearl and Satin Ribbon

We have quite a few designs that cater for different wedding themes and thought it would be a good idea if we tried to showcase each one with some extra pictures. First to be showcased is our Prestige design which is perfect for those romantic vintage themes. I love all the Vintage style invites with the lace, pearls and neutral colours and this is one of my favourites, so where better to start.

We sourced wholesalers for the ideal to lace to use on this design as we wanted it to be large enough to fill up the card, but not too detailed that it took away from the pearl and crystal embellishment. We have a huge supply of luxurious satin  ribbon colours for you to choose from so this design can be made in any colour way.

The Prestige design is available as a Pocket (RSVP card included), Wallet, Folded or Flat style card and the price includes an envelope.
