For as long as I have been designing wedding invitations, which is about nine years now, one color has been consistently requested year after year: royal blue. I can’t recall how many times I have been asked to change an existing design to use royal blue on it, usually with silver or white.
I had a request earlier this month to change an older existing royal blue and silver design of mine to be royal blue and white, so I decided that I would try to rework and update that older design for an exclusive new wedding suite on Lemon Leaf Prints. I have wanted to use the pretty heart design on a romantic invitation for quite some time now, so while I had updated the previous design that had only a single silver heart on it, I thought I would try to add some zing by making it look like a royal blue enamel heart was sitting in a silver brooch. I’m quite pleased with the result and I hope you are too.
Winter has come early where I live. We don’t usually have permanent snow until January, so it was a little depressing to have our first big snowfall in mid-November. All that snow prompted me to daydream of warm spring and summer days and bright, sunny weddings, which helped me to visualize a fresh spring or summer wedding in a royal blue and white color theme.
With this royal blue and white floral love heart wedding invitation suite, I wanted it to be bright and fresh with an overall modern and romantic feel to it. The wedding invitation uses a royal blue, light blue, and white color scheme, which is easily changeable to your custom color combinations if you are using a different color with the royal blue.
I based this design on several images from the Internet that had the bridesmaids wearing royal blue and light blue colors. With royal blue being fairly versatile in terms of using other complementary colors with it, the design can be changed to have yellow, orange, green, black, pink, red, or several others colors in place of the light blue.
The design has a floral pattern on the white area at the bottom of the invitation with a royal blue ribbon above the flowers. There is a simulated silver heart-shaped brooch sitting off-center on the left side of the ribbon and it has a simulated blue enamel look with hearts and flowers filigree shape insert on top.
The names of the bride and groom are in large white script on the top royal blue area and a modern ampersand symbol is below the names in light blue. The romantic and popular verse that says: “This day, I will marry my best friend, the one I live for, laugh with, dream with, love” is also in white below the names of the happy couple. A verse from the Bible or a different poem could also be printed there instead.
The back of this royal blue and white wedding invitation has an abundance of blues, along with another filigree heart in white because I liked it so much. There is an outer light blue border with the large central rectangle shaped text box in royal blue with white edging and an inner ornate scroll frame and decorative scroll ornament that divides the main wedding invitation wording from the reception and/or RSVP information.
By putting some extra wedding information on the wedding invitation, such as the reception details or RSVP info, it’s a nice saving for you as you won’t need to purchase the separate enclosure card. More and more couples that I work with are opting to have the RSVP information on the wedding invitation when they don’t have meal selections for their guests to choose from.
The reception information can also be printed on the invitation, which is especially nice when the reception and ceremony are taking place at different locations. With the online sample, I used a ceremony and reception at the same venue, which many couples are choosing nowadays, so the wedding invitation has both the time of the reception and the RSVP details on it.
