So much planning goes into the wedding day that it can be easy to forget everything that comes before it. There’s so much to organize, arrange and plan for that small yet necessary steps can be forgotten; steps like actually inviting all the guests!
Wedding invitations tell guests a lot about what to expect at the wedding, not just where and when, but important wedding details like what the theme will be. A well-chosen wedding invitation design will let the guests know exactly what to expect and how to dress, act, and prepare accordingly.
Picking the wedding invitations must be done so far in advance of the wedding that it can feel overwhelming to try and coordinate the cards with the theme. What if you are undecided?
A clever way to go about choosing the perfect cards is to settle on a broad theme first. In this case, we will be looking at some of the most lovely rustic wedding theme invitations.
Birch and Eucalyptus Cards
Wooden cards, who would have guessed? These unique invitations display nature at its most elegant.
Each custom-engraved card has a bit of nature added via a sprig of thermal-shocked eucalyptus tied on with twine. These cards are durable and travel well but also present a truly organic look.
