Congratulations to Andres and Andrea Muller, who were recently married at Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque Catholic Church in Lomita,California! Don’t worry, there are photos and stories to come regarding the big day itself, but what about the little things that led up to the nuptials?
One of the most important wedding day details is making sure that guests know where and when to show up!
Andres and Andrea paid careful attention to detail when designing and developing their invitation envelope, and their obvious eye for design and detail was apparent to their guests from the start. Remember that invitations (and Save-the-Dates) are your guests’ first clue regarding the formality and feel of your event. Put some time into developing your stationary to make sure your guests will be impressed from the beginning!
Plain white envelopes won’t get you eliminated from Christmas card mailing lists, but wedding invitations can be a fun time to experiment with color and texture. Andrea and Andres chose to begin their invitations with a stylized envelope that incorporated a simple, wrap-around address sticker with hand-written guest addresses. They even used a stamp that integrated their color palette and theme!
The vivid and dreamy colors Andres and Andrea used throughout their invitation were found all over their wedding day as well. From table numbers to menus, the stationary at a wedding can be a great way to promote a feeling of cohesion and unity. Also, remember that simple designs are always appreciated. Andres and Andrea included only information that was necessary, and used an additional insert for extra info.
Keeping with the colors and formality of the invite, the RSVP card was a simple, fun design that would be easy for any guest to navigate. Note that they saved themselves some paper by making the RSVP a postcard!
A bright insert with Andrea and Andres’ wedding website information allowed guests to seek out any additional info online. This (or word of mouth) is the best way to alert your guests of registry details.
Keep a look-out for more wedding day details coming soon!
