So now that the guest list is locked in, the date is set and the venue is booked, we can now start inviting people to our engagement party. We're well versed in this department seeing as we, Tropica Weddings, are specialists in this field. So we're going to get all deep and meaningful with you on this topic to get you up to speed on the power of an invitation.

Since starting our business in 2015, we have designed a wide variety of invitations ranging from casual household birthdays, all the way up to luxe New York weddings. There are so many options out there for invitations that it can sometimes be a little overwhelming. An invitation is the first interaction your guests will have with your event, so it's important to make sure that they get a true understanding of what the invitation is for and the theme you are trying to portray. Remember, an invitation not only tells your guests when and where to be on the day, but it also gives them an idea of the style you're going for.
Themes can be anything from an intimate garden style, a tropical beach feel or a luxurious destination wedding. All you need to do is make sure that this style translates through your invitation.
If you have yet to come up with a theme and need some inspiration, we recommend using Pinterest as a tool to visually see what direction you want to go in. Save the pins of the weddings you love into a folder and then look back at your Pins you've saved once you're done. This will give you a good idea of what kind of wedding styles you're into and help you to narrow down your search.
Next week, we'll talk about colour schemes and how to choose the right colours for your chosen theme. Sign up to our newsletter to have our tips sent straight to your inbox.
