Customise your very own Art Deco wedding invitations with Basic Invite

As you all know I just love nice things and that is even more important when it come to your Wedding. Having those little luxury items that set the scene for your wedding, your wedding invitations are what sets those first impressions for your big day and we all know that first impressions are very important.

Setting the scene for your wedding

So many Brides think that they are just not an important part of the wedding, but for me they are. When a wedding invite arrives, I am always excited to see it, what it feels like, looks like, the colours, the patterns, the style. Each and every one of those things are the starting point for your wedding. It gives your guests the first look at what your wedding colours will be, what the theme may be, modern, art deco invitations, rustic, hollywood glamour. I think it helps your guests to start feeling as excited about your wedding as you are.

After you have set your date, planned your colour scheme and theme, then you can start looking at the extras. Finding a company to make your invited that are just what you are looking for isn’t always easy as so many are set colours or style, where you just edit the existing text. I mean that’s great if that is what you are looking for.

Beautiful Wedding Invitations

However, Basic Invite is anything but basic, they offer a fabulous range of wedding invitations. Each one can be changed and edited to become your dream wedding invitation. It could be you wanted to change to shade of pink, or add more colour combinations, add foil to your names anything you want is possible with Basic Invite. Not forgetting save the date cards, RSVP cards, menu options, gift list, order of service and anything else you could possibly want for you wedding.

To make your design just perfect, Basic Invite allow you to change each colour element on your design. There are very few places that allows you to design your invite with an very near unlimited range of colours, plus instantly view it online.

A wedding website?

Something I hadn’t heard about, but is apparently becoming more and more popular with the happy couple, is to produce their very own mini website, just for your wedding. Upload the details of your venue, the menus, gift lists, hotels, transport and anything to help your guests. You could also get them to add photographs after and you can share your favourite wedding photographs. It’s an amazing idea, not sure why I did not think about it, Basic Invite offer 180 different website pages that are as customisable as their wedding invitations.

If you are also looking for a guest book and thank you cards, then with Basic Invite you have the ability to design these to help to style your wedding from sending the invitation out, to the wedding all the way to the thank you card. Then to the baby announcement card.

Classic car wedding transport with Book A Classic

Planning your big day can be so much fun, working out all of those little extras that make the day unique to you. Choosing your wedding car isn’t just about getting from the church to the venue or from your home to the ceremony. It’s about setting the tone of your wedding, adding that bit of luxury and showing your personality throughout your big day. Plus get a great photographer and they will look amazing in your photographs as well.

It’s very popular at the moment to have VW camper vans as transport for the bride and her bridesmaids. A couple of my friends have had these in the last couple of years and their photographs look fabulous. When I got married we didn’t have any transport, I stayed at the venue the night before and my Hubby arrived in our car. I do however wish we had images of us with stunning cars.

There are so many different Classic cars around for hire and Book A Classic is the perfect place to start looking for the perfect one for your big day. Using Book A Classic is a one stop shop, it has a hundreds of cars listed and you are easily able to search the cars within your area.

I have picked out my top 5 Book A Classic cars to have at a wedding.

Book A Classic – my top picks

Book A Classic Car

The VW camper van, like I said before they make for the amazing photo graphs, plus how much fun for the bride and her bridesmaids to travel all together in the same vehicle. Also for those having a few bridesmaids by having a VW camper van will save hiring more than one car for the day.

The Chrysler Windsor convertible, such a classic car and so beautiful in a the ivory colour. Looks great in your photographs and will make a fabulous impression on your wedding guests.

If you are looking for a cute little classic but with a splash of colour, what about this lovely VW Beetle Fusca. It’s the perfect little car for a rustic wedding. I can imagine with the burnt orange colour of the car, with the autumnal shades of flowers….. beautiful.

For the more traditional style wedding transport what about a Bentley Mark VI. It oozes country manor grandeur, beautiful in images and a classic car like no other. I love this.

The E type Jaguar is the car of most men’s dreams. The E Type is very popular with Grooms men, they hire the car to drive. Arrive with the best man, then use it to drive their new wife or husband to the reception venue. Just like the Royals do.

These are my top picks from Book A Classic, what do you think? What would be your dream transport for your wedding day? For me I would love the Bentley and my Hubby would go with the E type.

Choosing the colour theme of your Wedding

Planning a wedding should always start with choosing the theme and colour combinations that work the best for you and your partner. You need to make the day be about you. Don’t let your wedding planner influence your choices, and make sure that you choose the colours that represent your personality and matches your style. Below you will find a few tips on choosing the colour themes for a perfect personalised wedding.

choosing the colour theme of your wedding

Decoration

White with gold, pink, or silver might seem like the straightforward choice, but you need to dare to be unique. If you love purple and yellow, and would like to create a fun atmosphere, nobody should hold you back. Choose the flowers according to your colour theme, and dress your tables, venue in the shades you prefer at home. Make sure that you have a neutral background colour, such as beige or white, so your unique decorations are getting noticed.

Dresses

White dresses are a part of wedding traditions, but you don’t have to completely stick to the rules. You can choose a different colour tiara or shoe, and make a statement. A flower in a dark red will make you stand out more, especially if your future husband wears similar colours. You can search for mens wedding suits in different colours, and choose the appropriate flower decorations, so your looks are a perfect match. Make sure that your bridesmaids’ dresses create a perfect contrast with your dress.

Accessories

Create a contrast with your accessories. Your flowers need to be colourful, to get noticed in the white background. Get a necklace that is bold and beautiful, and a bracelet made of colourful floral motifs. Choose earrings that are not overwhelmingly large, but contain your wedding theme colour and suit your skin tone. Choose matching tablecloths, serviette, and napkin rings,cutlery, and chair decorations.

Cake

Everything at your wedding should be about you. Get creative and order a cake that is modern, bold, or even funny. Choose a colour for the decoration that is present in your venue, and motifs that are similar to your floral bouquet. If you are going for a pink princess theme, you can get a palace-shaped wedding cake made. Love red? Get some strawberries and raspberries scattered around the cake for contrast. Add colourful edible flowers or marzipan to compliment the main colour.

Food

Avoid bland and boring food, if you want your wedding to represent your personality and attitude toward life. You can use food colouring, or even edible flowers to decorate the plates with the same colours and match the style of the wedding venue. Choose your tableware according to your menu and original colour theme.

Choosing the right colours for your wedding theme helps you make your big day memorable and unique. Get planning and find the shades that suit you the most. Talk to your bridesmaids before you decide, but avoid the standard boring combinations. Get creative, and make sure you add a unique colour you and your future husband both love and suit.
