Invites and Ribbons: Add Flair to Your Wedding Invitations

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

We recently received a batch of lovely ribbons from Ampelco Ribbon Company, a family-owned company based in Downers Grove, Illinois specializing in creating beautiful, elegant ribbons and trims. We thought it might be fun to pair some of their best ribbons with our own invitation samples to inspire anyone looking to add a little flair to their wedding invitations.

This matte gray envelope promises beauty and delivers just that when its contents reveal photocream-colored heavy weight cotton invitations with gold foil letterpress in an elegant cursive all wrapped up in a belly sleeve of delicate gold glitterweb ribbon. The last detail is what will really blow your guests away and further prove that your wedding is going to be the most elegant of affairs.

After months of agonizing over what your color scheme should be, consider a ribbon in the invitation that further solidifies what you have now chosen to be the most appropriate and note-worthy color scheme of all weddings.

Pictured left is an invitation in royal blue letterpress on white cotton behemoth that could be further expanded to include a light, sea-green blue strip of glitter with a darker, royal blue velvet lining. This breathtaking combination of colors and materials would be a fantastic way to elaborate on your wedding color scheme and give your guests a glimpse into what they should expect from your wedding: style and sophistication.

To be honest, I’m pretty partial to colors gold and purple being paired up. What could be IMG_1651more refined than the primary colors of royalty?  Sunflowers and lilacs, lilies and clematis, daisies and violets; because the two colors are opposite of one another on the color wheel, it makes them complimentary to each other and therefore pleasing to the eye. That’s why this invitation of heavyweight white cotton, grey letterpress and yellow painted edge would be wonderfully paired with this glitterweb purple ribbon.

There are so many options available out there to make your invitation stand out from the rest, so it’s important to consider them all. Just remember, here at Digby & Rose, we can make anything happen.
