Ask the Celebration Advisor: My fiancé and I are to be wed soon and we are in the process of trying to pick out wedding invitations. We are a young couple and the thought of having a stiff, formal wedding isn't too appealing to us. Are there any wedding invitations in Gadsden, AL that are appropriate to use for our wedding?
The Celebration Advisor: Its great you recognize the fact that a wedding invitation should reflect the theme of a wedding. In Gadsden, wedding invitations come in many different styles fit for any taste. Some cater to couples whose wedding follow a more traditional approach. However for a wedding such as yours, there is a style that seems to stand out above the rest that I am sure you can be happy with.
The contemporary style of wedding invitations stray away from typical invitations in the way artwork is portrayed. The colors used stick more to earthy tones and choices for images printed on the card are numerous but sometimes include a retro style heart or a picture of the couple to be wed. Damask designs are also sometimes present on contemporary wedding invitations.
Wedding invitations are a creative way to let friends and love ones know about your upcoming big day. Creative as they may be, another approach to your wedding invitation design can be to add alterations to the design so that it better suits you and reflects your personality. For instance adding a special ribbon or including an engagement picture. Even writing a special message in an invitation would further distinguish it as well as give sentimental loved ones a chance to have their heart-string pulled on.
Don't be shy to add your own touches to your wedding invitations. They are completely yours to personalize and I encourage you to excersize a bit of your creativity if you dont find the perfect one. I hope you find the style of not-so-formal invitations you are looking for in Gadsden and that your wedding is the fun, laid back event you are hoping to have.
