What’s New In Paper

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” is traditional attire for brides on their wedding day.  But when it comes to invitations, what more couples want is “something different” and the creators of invitations are more than happy to comply.


White ink is red hot for 2005

For the last couple of years wedding magazines have been showing invitations in brilliant colors usually with white engraving.  Many couples loved these styles, until they found out how much these engraved invitations could cost.  Well, showing up this coming year in wedding invitation albums of all price ranges are bold, colored invitations with printing and engraving in white ink.  Some of the more popular colors are red, pink or blush, royal blue and mocha among others.


Save the Date Announcements

As more and more couples plan destination weddings, weddings over holidays or weddings with multiple events several days, pre-invitation announcements have become a necessity.  Save the Date announcements provide a thoughtful and fun way to inform guests of your special event and allow them to plan ahead.


Personalized Napkins

You are probably thinking, “oh, those!”  But really, today’s napkins are much more stylish compared to the foil designed napkins that you’ve seen in the past.  Embossing or debossing the couples monogram or stylish motif on cocktail and reception napkins has become quite popular.  In addition, using a funky layout for the names and date adds additional style.  With so many popular colors to select from this may be a nice, personalized addition to your cocktail hour.


As you plan your upcoming wedding you have so many wonderful choices for your wedding invitations.  No longer is it a basic white invitation.  Your choice of styles, colors and unique papers can make your invitation truly yours.


Just wander in to a stationery store and see all the new papers available.  A wedding invitation consultant is ready to help in any way she can.
