Matching Your Wedding Invitations to Your Wedding Theme

Wedding invitations are an important component of your big day. After all, your wedding invitations will help set the tone for your wedding day. In fact, you will likely want to pick wedding invitations that include the colors you will be using at your wedding or that follow the same theme as the wedding celebration you will be creating. Therefore, you actually need to have a clear idea of how you want your wedding to look before you ever purchase your invitations.

There are several different types of wedding invitations that you might choose from. These include:

  • Classic or Traditional Designs
  • Seasonal Designs
  • Modern or Contemporary Designs
  • Floral Designs
  • Destination Wedding Designs
  • Casual Designs
  • Character Designs


Regardless of the type of design you choose to go with, your guests will have a good idea of what kind of wedding and reception they should expect to be attending when they see your wedding invitations.

With a classic or traditional design, your guests will know that they should dress in more formal attire and that they should expect an elegant wedding and reception. With casual invitations, on the other hand, they will know that they do not necessarily have to get dressed up for the occasion. Example of elegant invites are pocket invitations, embossed invitations, laser cut, etc.

A wedding invitation for a destination wedding may show images that depict the destinations. Beach wedding invitations, for example, are a good choice if you plan to have your celebration on a beach. This also helps your guests know that they should wear clothing that is appropriate for the sand.

Floral designs are a great choice you do not plan to have an extremely traditional and elegant wedding but will be having one that is more on the formal side. These invitations are also great for matching with the colors or flowers that you will be including in your wedding ceremony. The same is true for seasonal wedding invitations.

Character wedding invitations, such as those containing characters fro Disney, can show that your wedding will be a bit whimsical and fun. Or, depending on the invitation, these cards can still set a serious and formal tone while still bringing forth the childlike innocence that cartoon characters represent.

Regardless of the wedding you plan to have, take time to really look through the many different wedding invitation designs out there and be sure to pick the design that depicts your special day in just the right way.
