When it comes to modern wedding invitation designs, you will find more options for customizing them with your choice of colors.  It used to be that most designs had their color(s) already determined and you were only allowed to choose the color of ink for the invitation wording.  There are still designs like that today, but there are also more and more designs that give you color options for both design elements and the verse printing.  Custom colors are a great way to add your own personal touch to your invitation design.

Here are just a few unique examples of how your choice of color can truly transform the look of the same wedding invitation design.

By simply changing the color of the roses on this Lovely Roses Invitation, you can make it custom to your wedding flowers.  Choosing the same ink color for your names and/or invitation wording is also a way to customize the design.

I don’t know about you, but I always think of black and white as classic wedding colors – the bride dressed in her beautiful white gown and the groom dressed in his sleek back tux.  Also classic, or traditional, are white invitation cards with lettering printed in black ink.

Little girls are often known to love the color pink and that can ensue years later to their wedding day.  I am always reminded of the movie ‘Steel Magnolias’ where Shelby’s wedding gloriously featured her passion for pink with the colors of blush and bashful.

If this is your wedding color, you can enhance that theme even more by creating pink wedding invitations with the color of paper, ink, and/or design printing you choose.  Here are a few examples for inspiration but keep in mind there are endless possibilities.

The Initial Look Wedding Invitations

Country Chic Pocket InvitationPurple wedding invitations can really include many different color hues including lavendar, plum, raisin, eggplant, lilac, orchid, violet, periwinkle and hydrangea.  Depending on the shade of purple you select, you may be able to create a striking combination with other colors such as grey/pewter/silver, gold, moss/olive, black, white, aqua/turquoise/teal and shades of blue.  You may be surprised at which colors enhance each other and you’ll know which ones don’t once you see them together.

Whatever tone of purple you select to include on your invites, there are many ways in which to do so.  You can choose a style that has a design printed in that color or the color may simply highlight parts of an embossed design.  Pocket styles may use your chosen shade as the pocket color or the invitation card may be layered on a slightly larger backer card of that color creating an outside border.

Purple Border InvitationOther options include having that color as a border on the outer edge of your white invitation card and/or have it as the ink color in which your wording is printed.

As you can see, there are many, many options if you choose to have purple wedding invitations.
