If you or someone you know is planning a wedding in the year 2011, you may wonder what the trends for these wedding invitations and what is expected of you. Depending upon your budget for invitations you may be able to afford a simple invitation or a more memorable one that is so elegant.
Whichever style you decide to use, you will notice a specific trend of invitations that the artists are following for 2011.
For the not so elegant trend, the invitations seem to hold a simple picture of the couple on a plain black surface with lettering that curls in a monochromatic contrast against the dark flat black background.
Swirls and scrolls are the big thing for the decorative design. Instead of your lacy cut out and ribbons, now the wedding invitations are simple but elegant and very worthy of a scrapbook page.
In the days of scrap-booking, naturally the invitations would appear to be like another page in your scrapbook. It is a keepsake that you will want to hang on to for a very long time.
Another style of the wedding invitations this year are collages. Adding the best of your pictures together onto the wedding invitation states that you are excited about becoming family and you expect others to be there too.
Melon, sea foam, green, brown, black and white are the color schemes of the invitations this year mainly because those are the common color schemes of most weddings that are happening in 2011.
Not only are the invitations looking more like a picture that stepped out of a scrapbook but they are also no longer saying “you are invited.” Instead the head line reads Save the Date.
Now that you know the style’s available for you to chose for your guests, you need to consider your price range. There are many sites available to you but the best one I have found so far is www.shutterfly.com. This web-page has over 122 styles of invitations all costing under 1.00 each.
This site also allows you to pick other colors that may fit your color scheme better. They also offer different sizes, different picture amounts and you are even able to select your preferred paper type. This site truly is one of the best sites to order wedding invitations.
David’s bridal shop sticks with the more traditional ribbon decorated invitations but the business keeps up with the trends as well by holding some of the more modern styled wedding invitations.
However, David’s bridal is more expensive. Their Price range at the least expensive is $175.00 for 100 invitations. In spite of the beautiful designs, if this is not within your budget, than Shutterfly.com would be a better deal for you. Fortunately, if this price is within your budget then David’s bridal is the best way to go.
Lastly, www.weddingpaperdivas.com is another great site for choosing modern invitations plus you get to choose your own colors for each design. However, they are almost as pricey as David’s bridal invitations. Even thought wedding paper divas is expensive, this company does earn the right to call themselves divas. Their invitations are not just with the trends but also within the season of the wedding. If you are going to have a winter wedding, then choosing invitations with snowflakes as the design is right up the divas’ alley.
These are the best places to meet all your invitational needs. So don’t fret about the invitations, make a list of who to invite and get an extra ten for those you may have missed. Relax and enjoy each other because the small details are not going to be remembered as much as your lifetime with your partner will be.
