The Symbolism of Wedding Invitations
Certain wedding invitation colors and themes are better suited to particular times of the year than others. For instance, an invitation in a palette of cool pastels or bright, bold shades might indicate a spring or summer wedding. However, a wedding invitation in a rich hue or jewel tone, such as cobalt, navy, raspberry, emerald or eggplant, may hint at a wedding that takes place in the fall or winter months. No matter what colors, designs and images you choose to include on your wedding invitations, those shades and patterns will symbolize the significance of the day to come.
The Importance of the First Impression
Your guests will get their initial impression of what your big day will be like as soon as they open the wedding invitation. Whether you want to create a subtle, nuanced floral theme to match your elegant church venue or you want to go big and bold with deep eggplant wedding invitations
to go along with your formal mid-winter ceremony, remember that your guests will go by your invitation when thinking about what to expect and how to dress on the day itself. Make a first impression that is cohesive with the theme of your wedding by matching the color scheme and design of the invitation with the colors of the wedding, such as the bridesmaid’s dresses or the floral arrangements.
Richly Toned Invitations Evoke Elegance and Style
Wedding invitations that are done in a rich color palette tend to be evocative of weddings of any size that may be more formal, whether they are in the warm or the cool season and whether they occur at night or during the day. Toning your invitations in deep shades and even adding customized monograms of the couple’s initials or last name creates a lasting first impression of refinement, personalization and polish as soon as your guests get their envelopes open.

"I am so happy with my invitations. The quality of the paper is great...weighty and perfectly textured. The design is so elegant. The only thing I would say is that they are smaller than I expected but I was reading that's that is a good thing as it saves on postage! Service was also prompt and a pleasant experience."

"This invitation was exactly what we were looking for! It has our wedding colors on it. I love how you can personalize it with whatever font you like. We ordered it on the shimmery paper and loved the turnout. Can't wait to get them ready and send them out! Thank you Wedding Paper Divas! They are beautiful."

"I really liked this design, but I was nervous that it would be hard to communicate my tweaks without meeting someone in person. I made a couple of tweaks, and the team was able to complete all of them and they made the product even better than I was thinking. Really easy process and the took minimal effort on my end!"
