Your wedding day will be the most special day in your lives, and you want it to be beautiful and serene, starting with your wedding invitations right through to your wedding décor and the wonderment of all the love around. If you want to make things personal then opt for a DIY wedding, and be a DIY couple, and be inspired by nature’s beautiful bounty, such as Peaches, Lime and Watermelons starting with the DIY wedding invitations.
Where you can start would be with your DIY wedding invitations by getting a kit from a good wedding invitations retailer that not only offers you options of printed wedding invites with inspiration for you for your creativity, but also blank cards with value added offers where you get the names and invitation wording printed too. This gives you a professional look to your DIY wedding invitations even before adding your own personal touches.
You can add accents to your DIY wedding invites using colours that are inspired by peaches, limes and watermelons. You could use any of these three colours as the background or base, or using white on the background and add accents thereafter. What you can do when adding accents to your peach, lime and watermelon inspired DIY wedding invitations is to use various methods such as using watercolours, to paper art, other items such as sequins and feathers to bring some pizzazz to the ensemble.
When doing watercolours, you can either choose a solid base colour or add accents by using various types of brushes and sizes to get the desired effect, whether it’s a scenery, illustration, or even silhouette art. Peach silhouettes would go best with contrasts such as white or even lime, while watermelon and lime hues would be best and make a better impact with white.
Another way to go about it would be to use ribbons, lace, and appliqués such as diamante brooches and buckles to add some glamour to the DIY wedding invitation. But what would be a good idea would be to go out of the box, and use materials and items that are being used in the décor, such as feathers if they are being put to use. With such great idea, your DIY wedding invites and the wedding itself will be beautiful and spectacular. You can go the extra mile by even using pressed flowers of those being used in the bouquets and décor so that the invites would act as keepsake too.

Material Inspirations for Your DIY Wedding Invitations
Beaded bouquets are cute and dainty, and definitely different from any wedding bouquet you have seen. They can be considered a little sparse, but you can accessorise with more beads or accompanying materials. Like so, you can add beads or beaded strings, to blend well with your bouquet, ensuring that the colour scheme is the same. There is also the option of handmade wedding invitations from scratch, which involves adding beaded buckles with lace or ribbons. That is just one option you can take.
Another unique bouquet you can use is twigs as the main attraction. Add a rustic touch to your DIY wedding invitation with this accessory.
Brooches are lovely additions to weddings, but you can break the mould by opting for a bouquet of brooches and make it truly beautiful. Your DIY wedding invitation would be a brooch too, giving your invitees a wedding keepsake with your invite as well.
Fan Shaped Bouquet is something that is unheard of but entirely possible. So, shape your wedding bouquet in that manner and decorate your wedding invite to resemble a handheld antique fan as well.
Feathers are lovely to behold and the colours are truly spectacular. You can add a single feather or numerous ones to accessorise your DIY wedding invitation.
Buttons, similar to brooches can be ornate and beautiful. So find yourself admiring the beauty of your bouquet and your wedding invite when you opt for this accessory.
Wires are similar to twigs but can be shaped to your liking. Deck your bouquet with some lovely designs and use that as inspiration for your design on the DIY wedding invites.
Fruits and Vegetables are great additions to your decor and using them for your bouquet is quite creative. Use inspiration from the fruits and vegetables, from the colours or shapes and use it in the decor and design of truly unique wedding invites.
Fabric Bouquets as also great options, and are cost efficient. When making your fabric flowers, have a few more made for your DIY wedding invites, and use it as the highlights of the floral invitation and blend your wedding elements together.
Chevron is a lovely pattern, which has been around for ages. Mostly used for insignia, chevron has invaded the design for various decades. The standard chevron pattern includes a zigzag pattern, however, depending on which way you hold the arrowhead, you can create various other patterns of your fancy. In today’s article, we are looking into using chevron patterns with DIY wedding invitations. An ongoing trend in the wedding industry, you can make many beautiful chevron-wedding invitation designs with the right inspirations, colour scheme and materials.
Layout, Patterns and Invitation Designs
Chevron is usually accompanied with one white chevron patterned line and then a coloured one, and depending on the colour you choose, you can match it with your wedding theme. The way you can go about with your wedding invitation design and the use of the pattern, is with the layout. Ways in which you can put the layout and the pattern to use include the likes of;
– Background either as bold and arrow design, or rolling pattern)
– Bisection of the wedding invitation given to the pattern with the opposite side being a solid colour, preferably of the wedding colour theme, or even something contrasting
– Border chevron design, with a bold lining and a white inner for the text area
– Watermark chevron design, so that the pattern is easy on the eye and is a nice surprise when you notice it.
– Emboss or engrave the design on the border area or even the area, which is not used for the wedding invitation wording.
– Line the inner area of your wedding invitation envelope with a chevron pattern, therefore when the invitee open the envelope you can clearly see what the theme of the wedding would be, that is, chevron.
Draw, Paint or Paste
Ways in which you can use DIY wedding invitation cards and then go about decorating them is with the use of the right materials, some inspiration and a vision. You can draw, paint or even cut out a chevron design or strips of paper to paste onto the paper for an artsy look and feel. You can even use lace as material to create the pattern on your DIY wedding invitation paper. Contrast is key, so keep to that effect.
Be Colour Coordinate, Go Monochrome or Technicolor
A great way of making your chevron wedding invitations stand out when you are opting to DIY it, is to use colour to create a lovely finished product. The choice of colour you use, especially if its monochrome is limited but gives off a eye catching effect. If you have a few colours in your colour scheme, you can alternate between them. If however, Technicolor is your thing, then colour away. A rainbow-wedding theme would be ideal for that choice of colour design and DIY wedding invitation.
