Choosing a colour scheme for your wedding invitations is very important. Your wedding invitations are the first glimpse your guests receive of your wedding day theme. Your colour scheme should also reflect you and your partner’s personality.

Cream and Gold

Gold foil compliments cream hammered card perfectly. The cream and gold together creates a warmth to your wedding invitations. Maybe use gold ribbon to add something extra to the design. Combine with a deep rich red for autumn weddings.

White and Silver

White and silver creates a chic feel to your wedding invitations. For a simple design choose a postcard style invitation and have your wedding details printed in raised silver ink. White and silver also make a good combination for winter weddings. Choose a design such as snowflake design printed in silver. White and silver can also be combined with black to great effect.

Purple and Lime Green

Purple and lime green create a powerful colour contrast. The purple adds an element of luxury, think royal purple, whilst the lime green adds a touch of zest. This colour combination is for couples who like a bit of drama and who aren’t afraid to be different.

Red and Mint Green

Red and mint green are strong contrasting colours. But because of the softness of the mint and the associations of the colour red (love, romanticism) these colours create a romantic feel to your wedding stationery. This is a also a good colour combination for 1950’s or vintage inspired weddings.

Pink and White

Pink and white creates a soft romantic feel. Perhaps have a photo of pink roses printed on a bright white wedding invitation with your names on the front of the design in silver foil.

Black and White

Monochrome wedding invitations have a timeless feel. Maybe have a photo of yourselves printed on the front of your invites in black and white. For a chic feeling design, choose a simple white invitation with an embossed border. Combine this with your wedding details printed in raised black ink.

Chocolate and Cream

A neutral combination which can compliment many other colours especially pastel shades. A good combination for wedding stationery at your wedding reception, where you may not be able to control the colour of the decor such as curtains and wallpaper.
