Need some help on how to write up your wedding invitations? Designing an invitation is one thing, however there are some wording you will definitely need to include. Here’s a great guide on wedding invitation wording.

THE BOARDER

Boarders are essential to any invitation. From thick lines to curved swirls, boarders can add that touch of class you’re looking for. Straight thin lines add a simplistic feel that might reflect more of your style. It lets your guests know that your wedding will be more casual and simple. A more elaborate wedding might better be represented by an ornate boarder with varying swirls and frills to its design. Interlocking gears at the bottom of an invitation add a nice, classy edge to the page. But if you’re more daring, an entire boarder of gears or ancient, cogs-driven clocks can deliver that true Steampunk feel.

A Victorian addition to your page is never out-of-place in this genre. A Victorian boarder can be anything from elaborately swirled designs to sepia faded edges. It gives the invitation an aged appeal like an old photograph. Whatever you choose, a boarder can change the look and feel of your invitation. Our boarder selections are sure to make you invitation stand-out and represent the exact kind of wedding you’re hosting.
