Trends for 2011 Destination Wedding Invitations

guest blogging with Invitations by Ajalon

Today I'm happy to have Invitations by Ajalon joining me to share their four trends for 2011 destination wedding invitations.


Summer is approaching fast and that means summer brides are already preparing for their upcoming ceremonies. We're noticing more and more couples planning to travel to distant lands for their wedding celebration, as well as exciting destination wedding invitation trends emerging as the new year approaches.

Incorporating motifs from a celebration location in a wedding invitation card is the perfect way to get guests excited about an upcoming destination wedding celebration. Islands like Hawaii are hotspots for summer destination weddings, and a palm tree motif works wonders to radiate that tropical feel throughout invitations, RSVP cards and other invitations accessories.

Travel and Accommodation Cards
Some guests stress about attending destination wedding events. Some celebrations are longer than your typical ceremony and not knowing where to stay or what to do in the area can hinder their excitement. Including Travel and Accommodation cards do an excellent job in giving guests a little extra peace of mind about these lavish affairs.

Fun Fonts
Destination weddings are a great place to have fun with fonts in the world of letterpress wedding invitation design. Fonts that compliment destination wedding locations help carry a specific motif throughout wedding invitation wording.

Pocket Folders
Planning a destination wedding means lots of little details. Some of these details need to be shared with guests, and there is no better way to include everything they need to know than within a pocket folder. A pocket folder gracefully delivers and displays wedding invitations and addition information all in one place.
