4 Fab Reasons to Choose Foil Wedding Invitations
4 Reasons to Choose Foil Wedding Invitations
If you’ve been researching weddings for more than five minutes, you’re sure to have come across these stunners called gold foil wedding invitations. They are wildly popular and don’t hold your breath because this obsession with a gold foil theme isn’t going anywhere.
Why pick a designated theme for your wedding anyway? Glad you asked! Selecting a theme not only results in a consistent and impacting end product (i.e. your wedding day), it makes so many wedding decisions along the way easier. Whether it’s choosing big things like venue and a dress or small things like napkins and cutlery, having a designated style narrows down the choices, making your life easier.
Create a sense of luxury
Whether you’re planning a traditional, formal, modern, boho or cultural wedding, gold foil invitations create an impression of undeniable luxury. Gold foiling is at home with hotel ballrooms, classy and sweet ceremonies, a designer bridal gown and diamond jewellery.
If you’re going to pick one occasion to go all out, it should definitely be now. You will look back and cherish the memories of your wedding day for the rest of your life. Start the season right with stunning gold foil wedding stationery. You won’t regret it.
2. The ‘wow’ factor
It doesn’t matter if you’re inviting 40 guests or 500, every groom and bride want to stand out from the crowd. Avoid getting lost in the mix with invitations that literally glimmer and shine with life and fun. Real gold foil, raised gold foil, gold foil and letterpress – you have different options to choose from when it comes to blowing your guests’ socks off.
This isn’t the time for ordinary stationery that you might receive for your friend’s sister-in-law’s daughter’s 13th birthday. It’s time to get spectacular! Foiling – in either gold, copper or silver – establishes your wedding as an event not to be missed, but to be anticipated, planned for and eventually enjoyed. You’re worth the hype.
3. A theme of its own
While gold foiling can easily be incorporated into many wedding themes (gold foil and letterpress invites for traditional and formal weddings, golden crowns for boho styling or gold confetti for a fun, modern day) it’s strong enough to stand alone as a theme. Gold is universally adored and your eye can’t help but be drawn to the ethereal way that real gold foil shines.
As we mentioned earlier, a theme can be the perfect way to keep everything running smoothly this wedding season. Make every decision easier when you have some a timeless theme guiding you towards the altar and your love.
4. Touches of gold for your big day
Although we are obsessed with stationery here at Paperlust, there are plenty of other ways to incorporate gold into your wedding day and make it even more stunning. Consider some of our suggestions below to create an all-encompassing atmosphere:
- Gold place settings (napkins, cutlery, a Ferrero Rocher on each plate)
- Gold accessories (bridal party jewellery/cufflinks)
- Gold table runners
- Gold foiling on the wedding cake
- Gold foiled wedding signs (welcome, order of service, seating charts etc)
- Gold balloons
- Gold confetti
It’s okay to only pick elements you’re comfortable with; don’t feel as though you need to go overboard just to create a theme. As the adage goes, less is more. Instead of going with the motto of ‘all gold everything’, hand pick gold items that will really make your theme and venue sing. A few elegant golden touches are all that is needed to create the ideal fairytale wedding that you’ve both been dreaming of.
