Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! In honor of this, the most romantic of holidays, I’d like to talk a little bit about adding romantic details to your Philadelphia wedding stationery.
I’m talking about hearts, of course! I’ve used them more than any other symbology in my work. Here are a few examples of the ways in which couples have featured hearts on their stationery:
Rustic weddings often feature flowers and trees on their stationery. Carving a heart with your initials into a tree trunk is such a romantic statement! No wonder so many people like to have it pictured on their wedding invitations. Another cute thing is to use hearts instead of leaves. Lindsay and Josh’s save the dates had both! Jenna and Matt’s custom rustic wedding invitations also used hearts instead of leaves.
If you’re a medical professional, a Halloween bride, or you just think they’re cool-looking, an anatomically correct heart might be the perfect detail for your wedding stationery! Rachel of Creative Eventology painted one on a sign for the She Walks in Beauty styled shoot that was featured on Burnett’s Boards. The whole shoot had a gothic theme, inspired by a Lord Byron poem. I created those gold-dipped feather escort cards you can see in the picture, too.
A little cartoon on your invitations can tell your guests all they need to know about your love! Sarah and Dax used a lovebirds theme for their wedding, beginning with their custom wedding invitations. Their fall wedding used gray and orange as its palette, and the birds made appearances on their invitations, as well as their cake topper.
Even the most simple wedding invitation design can be taken up a notch with an ornate scroll design! You can even hide some hearts in yours for a romantic touch. That’s what Christine and Joe did! Their wedding invitations were a delicate shade of pink, with a brighter pink design decorating the top half. You can find a couple of hearts hidden in there if you look!
