Wedding invitations are one of the first things you’ll find for your wedding, but you still need to know some major details before you pick the perfect stationery. Elements like your colours, theme, venue and apparel can, and probably should, be reflected in your invitations. Whether your style is glamourous and elegant, fun and quirky, modern and trendy, or fashionable and vintage, there’s an invitation design out there for you. Here are a few ideas to get you started with your search.
There’s no reason you need to disregard your carbon footprint on your wedding day.
