Elegant wedding invitations doesn’t have to mean expensive. Just spending five dollars per invitation alone doesn’t make them elegant, although chances are at that cost they will be. Many times simplicity in your invitations can lead to true elegance. If you subscribe to the old cliché “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, you will recognize that having elegant wedding invitations comes down to the details. By paying attention to detail, and using your own opinion as to the class and elegance, your guests will see what you see.
If you use each of the details that are required for your stationary to their full potential, it is easy to quickly see the beauty come to the surface. Each of the details can be used to accentuate the other to take your invitations from boring to dazzling. Something that seems boring at first will quickly take on a new look as you add each little part.
You can choose from many different colors available for your stationary as a start. Don’t look past traditional white as an option, remember the additions you make will make these take on a different look. The paper itself is also made in different amounts of thickness, often a thicker paper will just feel more high class. You can also choose from many different styles of text available. Choosing a very nice script font will almost certainly bring out a beautiful look. Combine this with a nice monogram and you’ve added yet another classy element.
Once you have the foundation, there are even more elements you can add to make elegant wedding invitations. At this point you can look to add a border that frames the text, making it stand out even more. You can choose to emboss the invitations, choose a particularly nice fold to the invitations (how they open and close), add a raised floral pattern to the stationary, and even add a beautiful and colorful ribbon tied around the invitation for an extra look of elegance.
All the elements you add to the stationary will add to the look and feel so choose wisely and test different options with each other. Keep in mind you don’t always have to add all the options to get what you’re looking for. Again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder when it comes to elegant wedding invitations, so go with what you feel is right and you can’t go wrong.
