#SummerSeries 6: Summer Wedding Invitations

If you are wondering how you can make your wedding invitations more “summer-y”, this article is just for you! We asked Anusha Rao, Founder of The Paper Thingie, a unique custom design company specializing in out-of-the-box wedding and contemporary invites, to be our guest blogger for this topic. After all, who else but a professional can tell you the right thing to do? Read on to know what she has to say.

Aaaah summer weddings- a boon and a bane, but fret not my lovelies, we are here to make your invites hotter than the darned summer heat!

If I had to summarize the summer trend for you in one word, it would be colours! Lots of it!

Colours are your best friend!

Forget the red and gold combination and experiment with bold and bright colours. Let your playful side show and get inspired by nature… wild flowers or just an elegant leaf formation, you just can’t go wrong with it! Don’t shy away from unusual combos and have fun with it.

Inspiration – soothing colours of nature (mango yellow and blue with a splash of the sky blue)


Doodle away!

Fun, creative and super cute – personalized doodles are a big trend this year. And they look great as both an e-invite and as a fully printed card.

Inspiration – The bride and grooms beautiful outfits

The techno era!

As amazing as invites feel in your hand, it is always good to have an evite/online invite/video invite to remind your loved ones.  Email/ Facebook/ WhatsApp or Instagram your friends and family as a fun away to not just remind them but also to make them look forward to your big day! I personally recommend fun invites which tell a story about the bride and groom.

Inspiration – The couple’s college days

The take away is – Big on colours. Cute or classy but never cliché! Pick your style and don’t play it safe.
