Wedding Wednesday: Invitations

Apr 15, 2015

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Wedding Paper Divas. I received a product and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

Annnnd we’re back with the wedding updates! Planning has been going well so far, aside from a wedding planning stress dream I had where Omied spilled oil down the front of my wedding dress right before the ceremony. Why he was carrying a jar of oil, I have no idea. But from what I’ve heard from all my friends who have gotten married, wedding planning stress dreams are just par for the course, and unavoidable since you’re researching and thinking about wedding details so much in the months leading up to the big day. If you’re planning a wedding and have never had a stress dream about it, I’d love to know, what’s your secret??

In my last Wedding Wednesday post, I shared the first part of a collaboration with Wedding Paper Divas, and I’m happy to say we came to a design decision. As I mentioned, Omied really isn’t into stationery/invites that are “froo-frooey” (a.k.a. flowery). So I went through all of Wedding Paper Divas’ invitation designs (literally, all of them! They have such a huge selection with hundreds of designs.) and favorited a bunch of designs that I liked, and that I thought Omied might like too (keeping in mind the froo-frooeyness level, of course).

After Omied went through and weeded out some of the designs, we had several top picks. We loved this water color design for something modern and different, but still colorful. We also liked this marbled invite, but felt it was a little too modern. This Wisteria Wonder design was also a top contender (despite the fact that it’s pretty froo-frooey) because the vines and flowers match the gorgeous garden scenery in our venue.

In the end, we finally decided on the Everlasting Gem design, because it felt clean, chic, and unique. And I love the hand-stamped foil design.

In these sample photos the colors are mint and silver, but you can customize the color to the exact CMYK color that you want. We'll probably change ours to blue to match our wedding colors. I love that WPD has this level of customization available and that you get to work with one of their designers to review a digital proof of the invitations. We'll be ordering free samples as well (use code FREETRY at checkout), so we can make sure the colors are just right in person. So excited to get these babies printed!
