Elegant winter wedding invitation

Summer has been associated with weddings for years and, in fact, prices and availability for wedding venues, flowers, tuxedos and just about everything else tend to spike, especially during high wedding season in June. As a result, plenty of wedding parties are beginning to look for inspiration in other seasons and winter is quickly becoming the new summer when it comes to a beautiful seasonal backdrop for wedding ceremonies and parties.

Winter and Holiday Themed Weddings

Winter weddings can be a heck of a lot of fun because they often take on a Christmas or festive theme in order to play up to all the aspects of the season. Holiday themed flower arrangements pop with color thanks to the deep red of poinsettias against the vibrant greens and bright whites of other Christmas flowers like holly and mistletoe. The colors for winter and Christmas themed weddings can be anything from the ultra-traditional red and green to more modern takes on the season which incorporate white or silver with a crisp light blue and brown or a deep burgundy against a forest green with gold accents.

Christmas Themed Wedding Invitations

Wedding invitations sent out for Christmas-time weddings need to stand out so that they don’t get jumbled up with the usual round of Christmas and Holiday cards that become commonplace after mid-November.  You can make your invitations stand out just by using soft cotton or bamboo envelopes that are addressed by a calligrapher.  Another way not to get lost in the shuffle is to consider a royalty size invite (6 X 9).

  • Sending out Save the Date cards at least 9 months in advance, will put the event on the calendar by April and then send out the invitations by the beginning of November to ensure ample notice and to allow time for an RSVP;
  • Using a unique and memorable, single non-folded card with and elegant script font with simple information of who, what, when and where.  It’s usually-Save The Date-Lisa & Steve-Are Getting Married-December 21st 2013-Washington, DC.  There are no rules to follow for a Save The Date, just have fun with it; they don’t even have to match your invites.  We suggest that they’re interesting and pretty enough to be displayed for the months leading up to the event.  Here’s one we did that features a calligraphy style DC Metro map.

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year… And Your Life

Planning a winter wedding can make your special day truly stand out – not only for your guests but also for you and your future husband or wife. So embrace the holiday aspects of the season to make your wedding unforgettable – all the way from your initial Save the Date and Invitation cards through to holiday inspired decorations and the cake. There are plenty of themes to play on through the winter and best of all in cities like Washington, DC the winter months are off season so hotel rates and packages can add up to quite a savings with plenty of things to do including a brand new ice rink in the heart of Georgetown that’s bigger than the one in Rockefeller Center in NYC.
