Design and printed materials can really add a lot of detail and polish to your wedding event. These lovely modern wedding invitations, menus and dessert table labels were designed for an “Independence Day” inspired shoot for the Utah Bride Blog! The first thing that your guests will see of your event is your wedding invitations… so make sure they pack a lot of punch and get your guests buzzing and excited for your event! For this shoot the design of the invites really helped set the inspiration for the rest of the shoot. We went with a navy square pocket booklet with stripped detailing and bold typefaces to create a modern/ slightly vintage suite. We are seeing a lot of this modern and vintage fusion trend in all aspects of wedding design and details. Top everything off with red and white stripped bakers twine from Whisker Graphics and you have a truly unique and eye catching invitation!
Once we had the design foundation of the invitation it was easy to come up with coordinating menu’s for each place setting and the darling dessert table tags and signage. This is actually a surprise to most brides, but adding menus, escort cards, place cards, dessert table tags etc. is actually super affordable and worth every penny! If you are working with a custom designer it’s easy for them to create these additional printed items for you. Since the colors, fonts, designs and patterns have already been established for your invitations they can easily take those elements and come up with coordination stationery that is sure to impress!
Tip of the day: Take a copy of your invites with you to your dinner or reception and have your photographer snag a few shots of you holding them and laid out on a table. You spent so much time and money on them…. so why not have images to remember them forever!
