Minimalistic Invitations & Stationary

Keep your stationary simple for this fall wedding trend. From invitations and save the dates, to place cards and menus. Minimal designs are becoming more popular and for good reason! By keeping your stationery simple and minimal it won’t distract from other details, whether that be the contents of the invitation or the other more lovely details at your reception. In addition, small sentiments can be added to the stationary and will make a greater impact.

Deep Green Color Schemes

For a truly sophisticated wedding theme, consider a deep green color scheme. This earthy tone is relaxing and pairs well with both cool and warm tones. Making it similar to a neutral, as it is easy to add and layer other colors. But, more interesting and luxurious than an all-neutral wedding day. Start with dark green for your wedding color palette, and then build from there.
