Independence Harbor Blog
Here are some of the latest trends that we are seeing in invitations. Essentially, the style of your invitation sets the tone for your wedding.
Try dreamy Watercolor borders giving a fresh modern look, Landscapes offering hand drawn watercolor pics of your wedding location, Ombre offers a super modern different look with shades of your color palate and the always popular Monogram using a stylized combination of your names...or keep it simple and punch it up with gorgeous lined envelopes with a pattern that represents the two of you.
Having your ceremony at "I.H."? Your invitation should state the time that the ceremony begins. For example, if your wedding is a Saturday Night (6:30PM to Midnight), your invitation should read "Ceremony in the Gardens at 6:30PM at Independence Harbor". Just as at a church, your guests will arrive 15 or 20 minutes ahead of time, giving ample time to be seated, and for the Ceremony to begin on time. We are always available to answer any questions you may have.
