Spring is in the Air!

I love spring weddings because its the start of wedding season. Spring weddings are always fresh and light and signify that the warm weather is coming our way. I also feel it represents a new start so that said Spring weddings have a nice meaning behind them.

Over the years I have found that many of my couples use soft and fresh colours when it comes to spring wedding invitations. I worked with bride from England a few years back who got married during April. Her designed was in all classic black and off white with light yellow stripes on the back of all cards - it was stunning!

Another popular graphic design element is using florals.... illustrations, patterns or even as part of a custom monogram. The key is not over do it and to make sure your design is kept simple, orginial and tasteful. Whatever style or colours your wedding is sometimes keeping your wedding season in mind can also influence the design or your wedding invitations and wedding day stationery.

When it comes to wedding invitations and wedding stationery the key is to be right on mark with what your big day will look and feel like. Jennifer had a great vision meaning that her final invitation package flowed oh so well with her wedding day. Being from the US Jennifer had lots of information she needed to include with her invitation package since many of her invitees were not from the Toronto area. So that said a pocket enclosure was a must! Aside from the invitation and reply cards we also included a detailed map card with accommodations on the backside and a reception card.

Pantone has for the first time crowned two colours of the year for 2016. Rose Quartz and Serenity are shades of pale pink and baby blue... both soft, slightly dusty pastels.

Rose Quartz - Pantone 1767 This really is a beautiful pink that will radiate well on the skin for women as well as men. Women can always be helped along by cosmetics, but guys have to rely on the colors they’re wearing to sometimes make them look a little healthier.

Serenity - Pantone 2716 As the name suggests, Serenity is a calming color that plays to the whole idea that we know we’re still living in turbulent times. Blues simply relay that feeling of relaxation.

*Pantone colours listed above are used in print.

Hot Colours of 2016

2016-colours
2016-colours

According to Pantone and the fashion industry the hot colours of 2016 are as follows... Quartz Pink, Serenity, Echo Peach, Snorkel Blue, Buttercup, Limpet Shell, Lilac Gray, Fiesta, Iced Coffee, Green Flash.

When other popular hues have been canceled allowing for some unexpected color combinations. In addition, the healthy art world has sparked interest in some of these unexpected hues. Designers also referenced colours favoured by Matisse and Picasso, which have had blockbuster New York shows in the past year or so, and Frank Stella, Esther Stewart and Sam Falls also factored into the list.

Bright and abstract art has become more of a mainstream thing. At one point in time art came from a very elitist standpoint and it was hard to bring the world of art into a fashion/forecast. But today people have accessibility. They can go online and don’t have to go a museum. Rose Quartz along with Peach Echo, Serenity, Limpet Shell, Lilac Gray and Iced Coffee are among Pantone’s new colors.

Myra's sense of style and visual thoughts were very unique making her stationery that much more and interesting for me to design. She started off by sending me visual ideas such as old fashion european posters and menus. Being foodies Myra and Bruno wanted their joy of food to be a big part of their wedding day. Starting with their wedding invitations custom designed to resemble vintage style menus. We also did recipe cards and each guest table was named after 9 of their favourite restaurants. From Portugal, Bahamas, Palm Springs to Toronto each table was listed with a description/story inside their ceremony programs for all of their guests to read and keep.

Myra was very open to mixing a few patterns together keeping her over all design tasteful, classic yet casual. And lastly we carefully matched up her invitation package and wedding day stationery to her distinct colour palette made up of olive green, champagnes and caramel creating an overall a natural, vintage, euro look.

The Power of the Custom Wedding Invitation

If you're getting married this up coming year or the year after you've probably been on line looking a few or too many wedding invitations. Maybe they are all starting to look alike? Or you have found so many different style you don't even know what to do next? Maybe its best to take a few steps back and perhaps think about getting something fresh, unique, beautiful and very you! Remember mass produced wedding books won't cut... this is your only big day so you have to make sure your invitations are more then memorable! So what this comes down to is putting some thought to your wedding stationery and I can assure you will end up with a superb end product that is truly you. I'm listing a step by step guide below that will help your thought process in creating the perfect wedding invite:

Step 1: Think About Your Vision Take some time and dream up what you'd like your wedding invitations to look like: colours, style, print medium. What will best visually represent you as a couple. Ideally you should have a general idea before speaking with a professional.

Step 2: Set A Design Plan Decide how far you'll want to take your customization with colours, patterns, and layers of paper. More complicated projects may demand a more skillful team of professionals. Do you want a combination of specialty printing methods? Maybe you want a personalized invitation but don't have a specific idea. Your best bet is to consult a professional who will guide you through the process.

Step 3: Do Your Research It's important to find the person who will listen and carry out your ideas. Personalities and styles differ, so make sure you find the right match. Maybe start with referrals from friends, your wedding planner, or other wedding pros. There are many options, so check all your resources from independent designers to custom studios. Visit stationery websites... maybe contact them via telephone prior to meeting to get an idea of how knowledgeable they are and to see if they can design and produce what you are envisioning.

Step 4: Gather Notes Start compiling a file of invites you like: hand-drawn sketches, past invitations you've received, and magazine clippings that motivate your creativity. In addition, professional stationers often have portfolios filled with hundreds of examples that can serve as further inspiration for your own personalized look.

Step 5: Interview Designers Examine the designer's work and share your ideas. In the end it's important to connect with the person who will be creating this piece of work for you. Do you find that he or she is listening intently to what you have to say? Most important, based on what you are hearing and seeing, is the style compatible with your own? Have you seen any past work that you love? If you're not fond of most of their examples, don't be afraid to keep shopping around and don't forget to discuss logistics: Be realistic when it comes to what you can and cannot afford. Don't rush the process. Finding someone who really understands your vision is worth the extra effort.

Step 6: Choose a Colour Palette Your wedding colours are the strand that runs through all the elements of your day. Decide how you will incorporate these hues into your paper products: Will you use a coloured font, a coloured pattern, or coloured paper? A mix of the three? Can't settle on one colour? Then select two. Pick a pair that will be complementary, but don't settle on pale pink if fuchsia has always been your favourite. Most important, examine how each colour looks on the paper stock. Don't assume that aquamarine font will look the same on white as it does on cream.

Step 7: Decide on a Motif Do you want a monogram or another symbol woven throughout the day's festivities? If so, consider adding these themes to your wedding stationery. For example, an invite to a tropical wedding might include seashells and coral. Take a look through your designer's books and tag past work that you think might mimic your own style.

Step 8: Select the Size and Shape Believe it or not, the envelope drives the size of the invitation, so your design needs to fall within your chosen envelope formats (square, rectangular, skinny rectangular). And the envelope shape sets the tone for your wedding style (an unusual size signifies an untraditional wedding). Keep in mind that over size envelopes and final packages that are over weight will cost more in terms of postage.

Step 9: Set Deadlines Know the time frame you are working with before you begin. Set a realistic deadline that starts with your intended mailing date, plus the time needed for assembly. Ask about the turnaround time and charge for proofs. Once the job is approved, how long will it take to print?

Step 10: Discuss the Printing Process Before you seal the deal, ask about the entire team. Who does the printing? Will your designer do a final check when your job is being printed to ensure everything is exactly as you approved? Will you see a final proof? Is it the right paper quality for your design? Keep in mind that a fabulous design can fall flat on the wrong paper. Who assembles the invitations? Does the designer do this for free or does a fee apply? How many revisions can you make? Know from the start about design fees and proof charges. Get a written contract that includes an estimate and timeline. You should also expect to make a deposit to start the project. A comprehensive design plan will eliminate too many changes that may accumulate. Most designers allow for one to two rounds of edits -- extra costs can be substantial. Be organized from the beginning and you will minimize errors and unexpected charges.

Step 11: Finalize the details Taking the customization route can be truly rewarding -- just remember to take it one step at a time, because even the font can set a certain tone. Don't force something that you don't love at first glance in hopes that it will grow on you. Think of the big picture and realize that each element plays a role that can be carried through your entire celebration.

If you're getting married in the spring or summer of 2016 you might want to start thinking about your wedding invitations. But foremost you may also want to consider getting save the date cards mailed out. These don't have to be too elaborate if you don't want them to be. They can be simple with maybe a few of your own personal custom twists.

Save the dates will simply tell all of your family and friends to book the date for your big day. That way if other spring or summer events pop up at their end your wedding date will be saved in their books!

What You Should Know About Wedding Invitations

When should you contact a wedding stationer? Ideally a year prior to your wedding day. It's always a good idea to be early that way you can be involved from beginning to end assuring quality with having lots of time to make the right choices. My recommendation would be to start by sending out save the date cards. These are usually sent out 6-7 months prior to your wedding day.

When to send out? Your wedding invitations should be sent out 6-8 weeks (about 2 months) before your big day. If you have lots of out-of-town guests or doing a destination wedding, you might want to consider sending out your wedding invitations 3-4 months before your wedding day.

How many invitations should you purchase? I often get couples who think they should send out one invitation per person. So when I tell them the norm is 1 per couple or family.... they are relieved at how much money they will be saving. Other than that I usually recommend an additional 15-20 sets for the extra invitees (b-list) and some for a keepsake.

What should be included in your invitation package? You can make your wedding invitation package simple with an invitation card, reply card and outer envelope.  For the rsvp, you ask your guests to send in their reply via email or on your wedding website. You can go with a more elaborate package by adding pieces like a map/accommodations card, brunch card inside a pocket enclosure or a custom belly band.

What are some simple upgrades for your wedding invites. A great way to boost your invitations package is colour envelopes. Best to get the envelopes printed with your return address and perhaps guest addresses if you don't feel like hand writing them. Also putting accommodations info on the back of the map card is a simple and useful addition.

What should I be thinking about when it comes to wedding day stationery? The most common item my clients get is either a seating chart or seating cards. Menus and table numbers are also ordered very regularly. If you have a fairly long ceremony you might want to get ceremony programs designed and printed. This gives your guest something to read and follow during your ceremony.

Fresh Colour Combos for your Wedding Invitations

When it comes to choosing and mixing colour the possibilities are endless. Whether its bold, soft or states contrast its important to find the right balance. The value of colour plays a big part in all of that. The value is simply how light or how dark each colour can be fine tuned to... so if you've chosen a colour palette made up of pastel colours they need to be of the same or similar value meaning the same tone. Other options would be to use all dark or choose dark and light to create contrast. Whatever your final choice is make sure you run this by a few people prior to moving forward. I would also advise bringing your colour palette everywhere you go in order to give all of your vendors a good visual sense of your wedding colours. Check out a more detailed version of each of colour palettes below at onefabday.com

Everything printed in a luxe thermo engraving finish including her reply and return addresses plus belly band. The wedding day stationery was then designed to match with Jennifer's invites. We custom designed place cards including the blush pink stripes on the back of each card, large table numbers and simple menu card all in the same colours and paper. These clearly added a great final touch to Jennifer and James' beautiful tables and place settings.

My Word on Wedding Seating Cards

PLACE-CARDS1
PLACE-CARDS1
PLACE-CARDS3
PLACE-CARDS3

Maybe you're wondering how this whole wedding seating thing works in terms of who sits where and how your guest know where to sit etc... well it's actually very simple.

First you need to send out wedding invitations.... then you wait until your reply cards come back. Once you have all of your RSVP cards you then know who's coming. You are now ready to start working on your wedding seating arrangements. But first you need to ask yourself if you'd prefer a large seating chart or mini escort card? You're probably wondering what the different is between these two options. The seating chart is a large board/poster listing all of your guest's names with assigned tables. Escort cards serve the same purpose only your guests get to pick them up and take them to their assigned tables.

Once you have made your choice between a seating chart or escort cards you then need to figure out if you'd prefer to have assigned seating for your guests - meaning a name card at each place setting or simply getting your guests to choose a chair once they get to their assigned table. Your choices are based on personal preference, keeping in mind that all options work very well. Whether you choose a seating chart or escort cards... my recommendation is to list last names from A-Z. That way your guests can find their names easily and quickly.

This beautiful east coast wedding was full of soft colours, clean design with a timeless flare. Jennifer and James had a classic wedding day with a few of their very own custom twists. Their full invitation package was printed in a metallic gold thermo engraving (also referred to as raised ink). The back side of each card had soft pink diagonal flat stripes. We kept all pieces consistent from invitation card to belly band to printed addresses. When a couple is after for a simple wedding stationery design I often will suggest using thermo engraving as I find it is the perfect print medium to luxe up a modern or classic design.

Printing Styles for your Wedding Invitations

Thinking of your wedding invitations? What about print medium? If you didn't know this digital printing is the most economical form of printing when it comes to your wedding invitations. Especially if you're having a small wedding. But if you're in need of 100+ invites you may want to consider the following printing mediums.

1- Off-set printing This form of printing is very similar to digital printing. Its flat but printed on a high end press. Plates of made of your wedding design and then imprinted onto your wedding cardstock. I usually suggest this form of printing for couples who are after a full dark colour something like black or navy for their wedding invites. A variety of metallic colours are also available - something digital printing cannot achieve.

2- Thermo Engraving I usually suggest this form or printing when a couple is after a simple classic or modern design for their wedding invitation. Thermo engraving puffs up and is often referred to as raised ink. It is a classic and probably most common form of printing when your parents and grandparents got married. If you're looking to luxe up your invitations you may want to consider this form of printing.

3- Letterpress This is the oldest form of printing and one of the most classic. As opposed to thermo (raised ink) letterpress leaves a lovely imprint like effect. If you have the cash and you're after something timeless and elegant letterpress might be something to consider.

4- Foil Stamping This is by far my fav if you're looking to glam up your wedding invitations. Foil stamping is called dry printing because it does not use any sort of ink for printing purposes. It is a dry stamping process where ink, magnetism, or plates are not used to print letters and pictures as is used in traditional printing methods. In place of all these things, foil stamping uses dies or carved metal plates, heat, and foil in the stamping process. A definite classic!

I love printing. It's a real craft especially if you're into specialty printing. Over the years I've built wonderful relationships with all of my printers. They are passionate, knowledgable, reputable and located in Toronto and surrounding areas.

Glam Up Your Wedding Invitations

Tangerine-BLGO

Here are some great ways to glam up your wedding invitations so they look chic and upscale.

1- Get your invitations printed on a star dream shimmer cardstock. Order matching or colour shimmer envelopes.

2- Add sparkled gems to your invitation design. You don't need too many just a few here and there. This will give your invites that lovely bling effect.

3- Get custom liners printed... something with a pattern or in one of your wedding colours.

4- Order premium colour envelopes... these will boost up your package giving it a sharper look.

5- Get addresses printed onto your envelopes. I use the same colours, fonts, graphics or monogram from each client's invitation design.

These 5 tips are easy to achieve. Weather your making your own or having your wedding invitations custom made... all of these are available in Toronto and surrounding areas.
