Wedding Invitation Ideas - How to choose your perfect Invitation.

You're engaged! Congratulations! Now you have a wedding to plan, and one of the first things to do will be deciding on a style, theme and colour to base all your planning around, and your Wedding Invitation is a very important part. Your
>wedding invitation [] should relay to your friends and family all the necessary information about your upcoming nuptials so they can help you celebrate, as well as set the mood for your perfect day and give a glimpse into the style and ambiance you are trying to achieve.

Firstly, choose a theme or colour that feels right to both of you. You could choose to base your wedding around a seasonal theme such as Spring or Autumn. Use a spring inspired delicate and pretty floral print such as a delicate orchid, or pretty gerberers, fragrant frangi panis, or sensual red roses. Carry your Spring theme through your wedding day with charming fresh seasonal blooms in your bridal bouquets. Use the same species flower from your invitations to decorate the church and your tables at the reception. Choose and Invitation featuring a graceful Red Rose and carry a single red rose beautifully finished with the stem wrapped in a shining trailing satin ribbon as your bridal bouquet. Also beautiful is a wedding invitation featuring an orchid and then you could carry a single stem of exquisite orchids finished with a soft trailing organza ribbon to match your bridesmaid's dresses. DreamDay Invitations has a extensive range of splendid and striking designs to choose from.
An Autumn themed wedding invitation will enable the choice for the rich vibrant warm colours that are so prominent during Autumn. Rich deep reds, vibrant oranges and ambers and warm browns look amazing when used as a base colour for your wedding invitations and can be teamed with white or ivory to produce an invitation that is truly spectacular.

Black and White wedding themes are very chic in 2009-2010 and a Black and White wedding invitation looks elegant, graceful and very stylish. Choosing to theme your wedding with black and white makes your colour matching easy and creates a wonderful formal 'After Five' feel for your event no matter where your wedding will be held. Add splashes of a favourite colour with flowers, ribbons, and table decorations. Black and White looks amazing when colours such as pastel pink, soft blue, dazzling silver and vivid red are used as a highlight creating an effect that is simply stunning.

Beach or garden weddings are very popular in Spring and Summer as the weather warms and cool sea breezes are welcomed. Your beach theme wedding invitation could give the summery feeling created by balmy frangipanis or the cool ambiance of ocean blues. Team your wedding invitation with ocean inspired table decorations using vases with sand or pebbles, driftwood, water float bowls with tinted water and floating candles, goldfish bowls filled with shells or even sand and real goldfish.

Secondly, but most important, your wedding invitation should be informative and clear to read and should relay all the relevant information to your guests they will need to attend your wedding. You must include the host's name or names depending on who is paying for the event. You may choose to have your invitations printed including your guests names on each invitation or you may choose to leave the guest names to write in yourself individually. DreamDay Invitations offer both these alternatives when you are ordering your invitations. You will of course announce the bride and groom's names and give venue and address details for the location of the ceremony as well as the reception. You should also give your guests a guide to the expected attire with a Dress Code line at the bottom of the wording. i.e; 'Smart Casual', 'Black Tie', 'Formal attire' etc. R.S.V.P. details can also be included within the main wording or you may choose to use the option of including your own separate Reply card with the invitation that your guests will simply fill in and return to you by mail.

The perfect wedding invitation will be completely different for every couple and at DreamDay Invitations you will find and invitation to suit everyone. It should be a reflection of your own personalities and be worded from your heart with phrases and verses that are romantic and meaningful, and will make you and your partner feel special, capturing the true love that will be evident from you both on your perfect wedding day.
