I specialize in outdoor weddings, and that means I love nature-themed, outdoorsy wedding details too! In general, details for a wedding day are the small, intentional elements that go into the day. Think decorations, flowers, wedding invitations, wedding place cards, table setups, displays, etc. Including elements of nature into your wedding details is a great way to continue the story and theme of your wedding even into the small elements.
One way to create a consistent natural theme throughout your wedding is by opting for rustic wedding invitations. Here’s are three ways that rustic wedding invitations can enhance your outdoor wedding details.
Your “Save The Dates” and wedding invitations are often the first things that guests experience regarding your wedding. If you are planning a rustic, outdoor wedding, you can set the stage by sending your guests beautiful, themed, customized save the dates and invitations that will give them a peek into what your wedding day will be like.
When I arrive at a wedding day, I usually start by styling and photographing the details. If you are having a rustic wedding, having rustic wedding invitations with a similar style to your overall wedding day will create more consistency in your final photo gallery. For example, if you are having a laid back rustic wedding in the woods with a tented reception, super formal invitations may look a little out of place in photos. However, if you order invitations with a similar vibe to your wedding, then the photos will look and feel more consistent throughout your gallery.
However, if you want to have a wedding in the woods but you love super classy, fancy invitations, you do you!
Wedding details tell the story of your wedding through the small, intimate well…details! You spend time intentionally picking out your invitations, perfume, shoes, jewelry, etc., and all of these elements come together to make your wedding unique to you and your fiancé. Invitations matter because they are part of your wedding story, and often represent the beginning of that story.
I intentionally capture wedding details in photographs to ensure that this part of your wedding is preserved long after the day. You are going to have photos of your wedding invitations forever. Choose invitations that you love and that represent your wedding story.
