Wedding invitations are one of my favourite things, and Papertalk offers both unique template designs as well as complete custom designs. Adore is a classically chic design that I considered a “me” kind of item in the Etsy shop – I thought I’d be the only who liked it, and it would sit in the shop unloved and untouched. I’m happy to say that it’s been getting lots of love this year!
Ashleigh is a bride I have been with working with since the beginning of the year – and I love a bride who is on the ball with her wedding invitations. We went through multiple color palettes for her art deco inspired wedding, and finally settled on a lovely red, black and ivory scheme.

When you start early with your invitations, you have more time to play around with colors, styles and design. I highly recommend you start looking at invitations at least 4 months before the big day, because that way you aren’t rushing around and settling for a design you may not be in love with. Contingency is also important – what if there is a change in the ceremony time, or you decide that you don’t like the paper?
Remember that the invitation will likely be the first thing your guests see associated with your wedding, so whatever you do with it should reflect in your actual wedding day.
