Fabulous Foils For Your Fall Wedding

One of our favorite seasons at Invitations by Ajalon, is fall.  The red, gold, deep purple, and yellow shades of nature, mixed with the scent of sweet spice in the air, create the perfect atmosphere for a fall wedding.

Capturing the glory of such a romantic season can be as easy as choosing earthy tones and harvest colors for your wedding invitations.  Now, if you want to wow your guests and really take your invitation set to the next level, indulge in foil stamping.  Foil adds that extra bit of elegance and pizazz to any fall invitation set.

Take a look at some of our favorites.

Mr. Ellie Pooh Handcrafted Organic Paper Stock

It’s always exciting for us when we discover new trends for our fabulous wedding invitations.  In fact, we loved this one so much we had to share it with you.

Introducing Mr. Ellie Pooh Paper.  This gorgeous paper stock is unlike anything you have ever seen or felt before. The detail and texture are so unique that no two sheets are ever the same.  Handcrafted in Sri Lanka using 100% natural materials, chemical free, and eco friendly, it’s as organic as you can get. Are you ready for the best part? It’s made out of elephant dung.

As crazy as this all sounds, trust me when I say, this paper is already amazing on it’s own, but take a look at what happens when we turned it into wedding invitations.  It doesn’t get much better than this.

Ready, Set, Groom!

Ladies, we tend to get so wrapped up in ourselves when it comes to planning our wedding, that we forget our soon-to-be significant other.  That’s right, sorry girls, this one’s all about grooming the groom.

He may not need the lacy dress or the hair and makeup session, but our beaus do need to look just as amazing as we do. And trust me when I say, helping him get ready for his big day will benefit both of you.

Will your fearless fella be whisking you away in a black tie tuxedo, or is he more of a “casual dress shirt and slack” kind of guy? And how about them shoes? We all know if men had it their way, that trusty pair of sweaty gym sneakers would be just fine for their trip to the altar.  If their shoes are anything like ours, the prettier they are the more pain they inflict, you may have to settle for an extremely casual option.  Let’s talk accessories, they aren’t just for us, men like to add a little Rico Suave to their get ups just like we do. I’m talking fancy lapel pins, a macho set of cufflinks, or even a coordinating pocket hanky, all of which can really add that extra bit of flare to his ensemble.

It’s true, guys may not care so much about all the little details, but they still deserve to look and feel their best on their big day. After all, there’s no “I” in we.

Please Save The Date!

Being proposed to is just about the most romantic thing that can happen to a person.  So now that you are engaged, you may be asking yourself, what’s next?

I suggest, before going gaga on all the big details, you may consider sending out save the dates.  After all, planning accordingly isn’t just for the bride and groom. Imagine a fully customizable engagement announcement/save the date with elegant designs and beautiful colors tailored to your liking.

Your guests will not only appreciate the advance notice, they will be able to put all their affairs in order ahead of time, ensuring their ability to share in such a momentous occasion with you.

Same Sex Weddings
Unique Ways To Say “I Do”

Having a same sex wedding is absolutely wonderful and exciting.  Living in such diverse times has opened the door for same sex couples and given them the opportunity to make their marriage official.

Weddings, in the traditional sense, have become so blase for many same sex couples. They are now choosing to take the more creative and fun approach when planning their nuptials. It’s no wonder why unique motifs, flamboyant color schemes, and posh venues have become the LGBTQ way to say “I do.”

Your wedding should represent everything that shines within you.  I say, if you’ve always dreamt of being a princess or riding in on their noble….unicorn, well then why not make that dream a reality, these couples did!

Designing Your Multicultural Wedding Invitation

Figuring out how to celebrate your heritage on your wedding invitations can be a challenge. Add another culture and it can seem even more overwhelming.

Everyone sees culture a little differently, even people of the same heritage. What do the cultures you’re blending mean to you?  What aspects are most important to you and your future spouse?  And what do they mean to your future in-laws? Taking into consideration all these elements and presenting them on your wedding invitation will be well worth it.

Another very important element is language.  Blending different cultures together can mean different languages. Will you be accommodating this? A great way to do that is to design your bilingual invitation with both languages in two separate columns. Take into consideration key elements geared towards each culture.  If there are strong colors that represent love, prosperity, and wealth to you or your spouse’s culture, try to incorporate them.

Finding the best way to incorporate both cultures on your wedding invitation takes a few extra steps, in the end the result is far greater than the challenge.
