Flowers may be a wedding staple, but some couples turn their decorative elements into an all-out theme. Are you fully committing to the flower power? Here’s how floral wedding invitations can meld with your overall wedding plans:
Season – They don’t say April showers bring May flowers for nothing. Floral themes come to life when the flowers themselves are in full bloom—spring and summer weddings.
Outdoor Wedding Venues – Botanical gardens, estate grounds, rustic barns, and even backyard weddings are already making excellent use of the natural landscape. You can take this a step further by tying your theme together with wildflowers, greenery, and colorful blossoms on your wedding invitations.
Romantic & Formal Styles – Flowers range from effortlessly whimsical to pristinely formal. If your wedding fits the latter, choosing save the dates with classic flowers like roses, orchids, and carnations will add some color to your traditional wedding theme.
The perfect floral arrangement is a careful composition. Similarly, floral save the dates require the right combination of colors, fonts, and stylistic touches:
Color – Going for lush, tropical flora at your reception? Try invites with bright oranges, deep pinks, and lush greens. Giving pastel carnations to the bridesmaids? Then search for save the dates with soft blushes and lavenders to match.
Custom Photo – If you want to feature your relationship center stage, add your favorite picture of you two. Framing an engagement photo with a wreath of greenery or delicate vines combines personality and style, for save the dates that are distinctively you.
Foil & Letterpress – Looking to add some fun to your fancy florals? Invitations with delicate touches of gold or rose gold foil enhance the warmth of your color palette while adding a hint of sparkle. Alternatively, letterpress printing boosts the sophistication of a funkier flower design.
