Recently, many celebrity brides have started a major trend with “shabby chic” themed weddings. With this soft, feminine, and completely romantic theme, couples are able to create a mood that is warm, welcoming, and surprisingly fresh. The shabby chic wedding truly proves that what’s old is new again.
Before you head out to shop for vintage lace, pewter candelabras, and distressed furniture, start at the basics and choose an invitation that expresses your shabby chic style. Creams, whites, and soft hues like dreamy pinks and subdued greens combine to create invitations that are romantic, dreamy, and fantastically welcoming.
Square Vellum Gatefold Invitations with a ribbon, a deckled edge and unique shape are an enchanting choice. Print your invitation wording yourself, then complete the look with the coordinating creamy gold paisley vellum paper and satin ribbon for a can’t miss invitation with romantic appeal. An equally elegant but less fussy invitation option is the Botanical Flat Square invitation, a simple, beautiful ivory panel card featuring an elegant botanical pattern in soft antique gold.
Many shabby chic brides opt for more intimate wedding celebrations. For these more casual weddings (perhaps a smaller backyard affair?) try these antique, incredibly unique fill-in invitations, embellished by a satin ribbon, rounded corners, and elegant gold accents.
