Letterpress Wedding Invitation Color Guide
Planning a wedding without multiple colors is like having a cake with no frosting. Colors give weddings their charm and beauty, in everything from bouquets to letterpress wedding invitation sets. A lot of the brides that we talk to are unaware of the wide range of possibilities when it comes to custom color combinations in letterpress wedding invitations. So I decided it was time to give you a brief description of the different types of colors schemes and styles that letterpress wedding invitations have to offer.
To start off, any wedding invitation, no matter what style, has nearly endless paper color options. Tree-free, recycled cotton paper comes in a wide range of shapes, textures and colors, and you should not be afraid to mix and match your ink colors with your paper colors in your letterpress wedding invitations.
Whimsical and Floral
If you are looking for something in the realm of whimsical or floral, a purple and pink color combination is always a charming choice. But think big and ask for more color samples, even purple and pink can come in a million and one different shades.
While spring brides have long since said I do, green is a wonderful color to use in a wide variety of occasions and seasons. It can represent new life, growth and even environmentally conscious choices.
Black ink on white paper has not left the letterpress wedding invitation world entirely. But instead of rigid formats and traditional designs, think about using some more modern styles and patterns.
For a festive autumn letterpress wedding invitation design, think about combining colors that reflect the season. Choosing gold paper and red ink beautifully represents the leaves changing colors on the trees as the earth prepares for winter.
