Ask The Celebration Advisor: I read your post about "laid back" wedding invitations from a few days ago. I am needing to choose out wedding invitations for my own wedding however I am looking for ones that are bit on the formal side. Do you have any suggestions for finding them in Lincoln, NE?
The Celebration Advisor: There is a great selection of different types of wedding invitations in Lincoln. Styles that would be fitting for any and all types of weddings. Even for a more formal wedding such as yours, there is an invitation design that will complement perfectly.
Wedding invitations that exude confidence and a higher level of formality are considered to be in the genre of classic invitations. Typically a classic wedding invitation uses colors of pure white and ivory that have, through history, signified the bride's virginity. However in our modern culture, we see these colors to signify joy. Many brides recently have also opted for the use of more color in their invitations originating from non-European ethnic traditions. An example of this would be pale pastels or a golden deep-champagne tint.
A classic, more formal wedding invitation typically does not have much detail as to not distract readers from the intended message. However at the same time not altogether void of pictures. Sometimes printed on the card can be small hearts or a creative border to frame your gracious words of welcome. As borders go, some may be colored and are typically not solid lines. Another creative way to keep a border and maintain the white theme is to look at wedding invitations with embossed frames. This gives the design some depth and the finished product looks quite immaculate.
Lincoln has many stationary stores that carry all types of creative invitations for birthdays, graduation and weddings. You will no doubt be able to scout out the wedding invitation that best suits the formality of a traditional wedding. Good luck on your endeavors as they will surely pay off.
