Powerful Paper Pointers

Recently I was flipping through the most recent edition of InStyle Weddings magazine and they did a story on the newest stationary trends.  Whether you are getting married, having a bar/ bat mitzvah or just a good ol' fashioned fun party, everyone needs invitations and there were several great tips that I wanted to share.  And of course, I have to throw in my own two cents as well!

1) Go Bold and Graphic - Strong patterns, bright colors and a clean font are the up and coming trends for invitations.  Blues and greens are topping the color palette for 2009 as the hottest trends.

2) Get Nature-Inspired - Instead of the traditional flowers that are often seen on wedding invitations, if you are having a more contemporary event, you may want to consider branches, leaves or coral (not the color, but what you find in the ocean).  Recently I had a couple select an invitation with a bamboo motif which was very cool and modern.

3) Personalize Your Stamp - the envelope is the first thing your guest sees; why not make the stamp memorable?  The theme logo if it's a bar or bat mitzvah or a picture of the couple if it's a wedding makes a lasting impression.

4) And last but not least, they suggest creating a calling card so that guests can reach you after the wedding.  These days texting or connecting via social networking like Facebook or Twitter can keep you connected better than ever.  About the size of a business card that can be inserted into your thank you notes you can communicate your new address, phone number and e-mail addresses.
