Rather than using a single, monochromatic shade of purple for your wedding, we think that using shades of purple creates a much more modern and contemporary look! Inspired by our post on these two toned modern purple wedding invitations, we put together a little purple wedding inspiration taken from our purple wedding board on Pinterest.
While we love the multiple shades of purple used on our Modern Luxe wedding invites (this set featured was done in amethyst, grape and eggplant), doing multiple shades of purple also works very well in the flower bouquets and centerpieces, along with the pretty ombre wedding cake above. In addition to using multiple hues of violet on individual items, you can also break things up by highlighting different shades of purple in different parts of your decor. The lilac flats featured above really strike a bold contrast against the vibrant grape chocolate pastries.
Because the first preview of your big day starts with the wedding invitations, your stationery is an excellent jumping off point for your overall color palette. Don’t be afraid to play with color, you might be surprised at the fun combinations you can come up with!
Our Modern Luxe wedding invitations are normally shown in a bold royal blue color on our website, so it was quite refreshing to see a recent client change them up and do a pretty pastel purple! The result is modern, but softer, and we absolutely adore it.
The text and monogram are shown in grape and eggplant purple, while the borders and polka dot patterned envelope liner are shown in amethyst purple. The mix of light and dark purple hues adds contrast while keeping the invitation suite within the violet color family.
One thing we absolutely love about our Modern Luxe wedding invitation design is the way the borders look when the suite is assembled. The layered style is really unique and packs a visual punch when your guest open their invitations.
We also thought that this couple’s use of the polka dot envelope liner rather than something bolder such as stripes or chevron really went a long way towards creating a purple wedding invitation package that was more on the romantic and whimsical side.
The color options for this suite really are endless and sometimes seeing something in a different hue can affect your overall opinion of a design. More versions of our Modern Luxe invitation in different colors can be found on our blog, or you can head straight to our website to get started on you order!
I’m really excited about today’s post. Our friends Steve and Jennifer over at Bumblebee Linens shared one of their gorgeous vintage bridal hankies with us and I was thrilled to get to use it in our latest photo shoot! Their wedding handkerchiefs are absolutely gorgeous and the quality is outstanding. Delicate lace embroidery, pretty whites, quality fabric. We’re totally in love.
Decorative handkerchiefs are often used during the ceremony to blot away those emotional tears of joy. Rather than having a plain hankie, something with a delicate, vintage look goes much nicer with the overall look of a wedding. These hankies can also be used as an alternative to standard catering napkins at the reception, giving your event a styled, romantic and vintage feel. We had a great time incorporating them as a decor element when styling our wedding invitation pictures.
Shown above is our Script Elegance wedding invitation. We love the simple and timeless feel of this invitation mixed with the slightly vintage and romantic look of the lace embroidery. We highly recommend mixing texture with design when styling your wedding decor elements.
For ordering information on these elegant wedding hankies, hop on over to see our friends at Bumblebee Linens, or if you’re ready to order your invites, visit our main site, Shine Wedding Invitations.
Our Angelic Script design is the most classic addition to this year’s wedding invitation collection here at Shine Wedding Invitations. If you are after a simple, timeless and classic wedding invitation then look no further.
While many of our designs feature large names for the bride and groom, the Angelic Script wedding invitation suite is different in that the script used is a very classic and timeless font. While some of our other similar designs have more of a modern flair, this tasteful wedding invitation keeps it simple and traditional.
The main stationery is done in black ink on our signature shimmer cardstock which adds just the right amount of glam. The belly band and striped envelope liner have been done in aquamarine, a gorgeous greenish-blue color that gives this collection a very romantic feel. You can accent this suite in any number of colors and the envelope liner can stay striped or be done in another pattern.
For ordering information, please visit the Angelic Script wedding invitation product page. Matching collection items, such as programs, menus, thank you cards and more can be found on that page as well. For more classic wedding invitations and classic wedding inspiration, keep browsing our blog!
