Wedding stationery is an easy way to add a personal touch to your celebration. Save the dates and wedding invitations often help set the tone for the affair, as they offer guests a first glimpse at the wedding celebration to come. If you are looking for a little inspiration for your paper suite, these inspired ideas from real Charlottesville wine and country weddings show a variety of creative ways to accentuate your wedding’s aesthetic.
From swirling calligraphy to clean, sans serif fonts, typography-based stationery lets your words do all the talking with eye-catching lettering. Mixing hand-drawn, elegant fonts with striking, simple typographies can accentuate the lovely words you choose to portray your love.
Dark and Moody.
We have been loving this trend and its incorporation of romantic, rich colors, from deep plums and reds to dark greens and blacks. The boldness of darker tones can easily be accentuated and balanced with metallic accents to make a brooding atmosphere chic and fun.
Blue Ridge Inspired.
What better way to celebrate the beauty of love than by channeling the breathtaking air of the Blue Ride Mountains. Using the Blue Ridge as inspiration sets a majestic local tone, highlighting the charm of the mountains that so delightfully form the backdrop for our regional weddings.
Watercolor designs offer a soft subtlety that can underscore the romantic atmosphere of the occasion. Whether you go bold with bright and intense hues or soften the palette with pastels, using watercolors for stationary is a dreamy and amorous way to celebrate your special day.
Bold lines and symmetrical designs elicit both a contemporary and classic ambiance, with sleek, angular patterns. The simplicity of hexagons, diamonds, and other geometric elements is an easy and tasteful way to highlight your typography and make your layout pop with modern flair.
