- Wedding: October 2018
Hi Bees! I’m a Newbee that has been reading through boards on this fab website and I need some help! My fiance and I are stuck on two invite styles. Our wedding is going to be oriental inspired and our colors are silver, charcoal gray, and light pinks (cherry blossom pink). We’re not going full out “theme” wedding, just a few touches here and there but keeping it classy.
The first style that we both loved online is the Modern Romance from The American Wedding. The colors and backing are customizable, but it is the smooth digital printed ink and not the thermography print that I love (I know..big deal, that shouldn’t make it or break it). If we did these, the backing would be Onyx Black Metallic with a black ribbon, the large ornament would be siler and the smaller ornament would be charcoal gray and the band across would be light pink. We love the style of the font that is already being used, it suits us. My fiance actually picked these out first before I even saw them, and we both loved them except for the printing style.
Now the second one.. It is also from The American Wedding, and it is the Initially Yours style. It is a folded invite with a chiffon ribbon around it (which my fiance isn’t really fond of) but we love the thermography print style where you can feel the “raised” ink texture. Unfortunately, the backing only comes in 3 colors, and matte black is the only one that would fit “us” instead of the Onyx Metallic of the other one. We thought about getting these invites with a pink ribbon and changing the font to the same style as the first one that we love. Also, with the oriental inspiration, we thought about taking the ribbon off of these and DIYing invitation wraps (belly bands) with origami or washi paper in a pretty design with cherry blossoms incorporated. These would be just a matte black backing and black ink printed thermography style that you can feel (which I LOVE), and a pink ribbon that would be taken off and used elsewhere. And the second pic shown has the same font style as the first invite.
So help me out Bees! What should I do!!!???!!! I love both styles!!
