Your special day should be about you, and that means making sure every element of every step in your wedding plans should reflect either who you and your significant other are as individuals, or else who you are becoming as a couple. For some people, that means tradition, austerity, and the kind of attention to detail that communicates their dedication to an ongoing lineage they take seriously. For others, it means creating an open, inviting space where friends and family can come together to feel the warmth of each other’s company. Between those two extremes lies a whole spectrum of presentation opportunities, and there are other choices beyond them. The key is to find a way to plan your nuptials that really captures who you are.
It’s easy to remember how individual symbols like doves, the traditional bride and groom imagery, or rice and bouquets communicate certain moods and priorities. What can be more difficult for a lot of people is coming to understand how making a choice like round edge wedding invitations over square cornered ones also communicates mood and style. Sharper, more defined corners and boundaries make for a more formal and traditional look, whereas rounded edges make your invitation look informal and, frankly, inviting, the same way that a well-rounded picture frame helps to draw in viewers and aids in the presentation of a portrait photograph.
This means that looking at round-edged designs means looking at fun, sometimes flamboyant designs, and making choices that reflect that spirit. It doesn’t have to mean bright and sunny colors, but often they do go together. What it does, though, is it invites play, so that even more muted color choices or black-and-white presentations come off as being about celebration and fellowship. That way, you bring out the best in your wedding invitation’s design by picking a shape that fits it beautifully.
