You set the tone for your wedding by making decisions. Do you want an indoor or outdoor ceremony? Should you offer a formal dinner or a buffet at the reception? What music will be played—classical organ selections or something trendy with an acoustic guitar? These choices are important, but the tone of your wedding is actually established long before anyone arrives on the big day.
Announcements and invitations are your guests’ “sneak peek” of what to expect at your wedding. The days of mauve paper and plain colors are behind us; more couples are adding bold colors and textures to their palettes, and it’s a trend worth celebrating. Establish a look and feel for your wedding by revolutionizing the elements that were once taken for granted—opt for RSVP cards with flair, envelopes with character, announcements with style.
