Fall Wedding Invitation Ideas
It's hard to deny that wedding invitations set the tone for your big day. After all, itâ€™s the first real glimpse guests get into the aesthetic of your wedding. Is it super formal or more casual? Is it whimsical or modern? What season will it take place in? They also help guests get an idea of how they should dress, and they establish the look of the rest of your paper goods for your wedding day like signage, menu, programs, and seating cards. But, more importantly, itâ€™s an expression of the coupleâ€™s personality and how they want to present themselves to loved ones.
â€śYou should be thoughtful about your invitation, but donâ€™t overthink it,â€ť advises Elyse Dawn, one half of the sister wedding-planner duo behind The Wedding Planning Guide. â€śWhile making sure the color, art, and font match what you would like to use throughout the wedding, also think about wording that reflects you as a couple and the formalityâ€”or lack thereofâ€”for your day.â€ť
Itâ€™s also important that your invitation matches the season. If you are planning a fall wedding, burgundies, oranges, and golds are a no-brainer color palette. But, there are plenty of ways to interpret those autumnal vibes. Planning a wedding in fall 2021? â€śWe are seeing, and loving, deep earth tones with mixed warm metallics. Weâ€™re also seeing a lot of dried flowers and natural paper vibes,â€ť says Dawn.
She adds some tips for couples on what to include in their fall invitation suite. â€śIf youâ€™re feeling stuck on invitation wording, try looking through sample invitations on wedding-stationery websites to get inspiration,â€ť Dawn advises. â€śAlso, donâ€™t forget to include your wedding website information. We really like the use of a website to provide hotel, meal, and RSVP info and tools for guests.â€ť
