Your wedding day is the most important day of your life and if you are like most brides, you have spent a large part of your life dreaming of what this day will be like. You have agonized over what your dress is going to be like, what flowers you will carry down the aisle and many other of the dozens of minute details that must be taken care of. One thing that you can do to make the day special is to order custom fabric wedding invitations to match your wedding dress.
Far too many brides tend to take care of all the big details and then end up running to their local card store for a box of standard wedding invitations. If you really want to make a major impression on your wedding guests, you should work with someone that can make a set of handmade wedding invitations for your wedding. This gives you complete artistic license to create one of a kind invitations that will match your wedding theme.
You will find that there are several types of cardstock and paper that resemble the look and feel of cloth to choose from. They are available in a rainbow of colors and textures including Damask and flocked papers. There is no reason to stop at a single layer; you can add several different layers to create your own very luxurious custom wedding invitations. Start with a base color cardstock and add two or three layers of different colors to complete the base for your invitation.
To complete the outside of your fabric wedding invitation, you can choose from a selection of embellishments including ribbons, gemstone and bows. On the inside you will need to add a card that has all of the information about your special day. You can select a colored paper to complement your card or use plain white. The background can be a ghosted image of you and your spouse to be or you favorite flowers. You could choose a picture of the church where you are getting married, the choices are endless.
Finish the entire custom wedding invitation project by including extra card such as an RSVP card and matching envelope for your guests to let you know if they are coming. Many people like to include a map or a set of printed directions explaining how to get to the wedding and then on to the reception. You can also add bus or trained schedules to help your guests plan their day so that they are not late getting to the church.
