Your wedding day is approaching and the time to send out your wedding invitations is also quickly approaching. If you don’t send those out in time, you might not have kept enough time for your invitees to reply back. Time is an important factor when it comes to wedding planning, but also what your theme for the wedding and also for the wedding invitations is very important too. In today’s article, we propose ‘Fruity DIY Wedding Invitations’ for your featured wedding design element and how you can go about deciding and personalising it to your liking.

There are many fruits out there for you to choose from, which could be your favourite fruits. Some couples like making it personal, so if you have a certain fruit that you both have a certain kinship with, then that could very well be your choice. If there are two types of fruits, one which you enjoy and the other which your fiancé enjoys, then putting that pair together would be a cute and dear thing to you both. However, you could have an inside joke and feature a particular fruit that brought you to together, maybe an apple, much like how Isaac Newton found gravity. Like so, your inspiration can be from anything. There is however, another way you can pick which fruit you would like featured. It could be colour coordinated. If you like a certain shade from your colour palette, you can choose fruits that are in that range, such as if you choose red, then apples, strawberries and cherries would be ideal for that hue, whilst if you choose orange or yellow, bananas, oranges and cantaloupes would be perfect. Like so, the choice of colour can be your starting point of inspirations and discovery.

The way you can go about using them in your wedding invitation design, would be to choose the DIY wedding invitation paper depending on the colour and according to the layout you wish. Then you may proceed with having the guest names printed by the wedding invite retailer such as DreamDay Invitation who undertakes that responsibility. Following that, you can either hire an artist if you want a professional job done, or do them yourself, or even purchase some stamps so that all you will need to do is colour them in. The types of illustrations you can use can be the likes of individual fruits, bunches of fruits, fruits on trees, fruits with leaves, many varieties of fruits together and so much more. Decide on what you would like featured and then go with the flow of creativity.

How you can carry this theme forward would be with the use of your theme design element featured on table numbers, the menus, table placement sheet, name cards, and service orders, and of course not forgetting the items in your wedding invitation packet, such as the reply card, the accommodations and directions card and so on. Even your thank you card will have this fruity detail featured on it. It may sound quirky, but really, it’s quite unique to use such a fruit related design element for your wedding day. There’s nothing wrong with fruits and adding a little fruity touch can carry your personalities, yours and your fiancé’s, forward and let every invitee know that a lot of thought has gone into designing your wedding invitation for your big day, telling everyone how special it really is.
