Does anyone even say that anymore?
"Lets get it on" "We are getting hitched" "Sorry - we eloped"!!! - these are more like the types of invites i have been receiving to weddings of late.
To me, i don't care how its worded, i care about how it looks (soz to everyone out there who have sent hubby and i wedding invites - yes, yes i was totally judging all of them!!! :)
The tone to your big day is set out by the paper that is delivered to your guests doorsteps.
You wouldn't think that a coastal inspired, navy blue watercolour anchor invite would have a party destination of an inner city warehouse now would you? I would be expecting the rolling ocean, sea breeze and a few oysters to greet me - not a man bun, tight chino wearing hipster, serving me moet by the bottle in an alley covered with graf work. However - it does add an element of surprise, if thats what your into!
The style of your wedding is most easily created with the style of your stationary.
The easiest way to really channel your theme and vibe for your special day and to eliminate whether you want boho or rustic is to get those invites out!!
The stationary is where you can have fun. Be BOLD. Be bright. Really punch those colours, be cliché with the details.
By using a particular image, art or print on your invitations, you can then scatter that detail through your entire night - place settings, escort cards, favours, menus and even backdrops to the d-floor!
Remember that guests will vibe on what you give them - so give them what you see your day to be.
