Why Summer Brides Should Definitely Consider Ombre Wedding Invitations

I love the vibrancy of these ombre wedding invitations by Leeming Brothers.

Have you thought about ombre wedding invitations for your summer wedding. Or are you not sure exactly what ombre wedding invitations look like? Don’t worry if you are not sure as I know many brides and grooms are in the same situation. I shall basically let the Lewis R. Stevenson of Leeming Brothers explain….

‘Over Christmas 2016 we had an idea,’ Lewis says. ‘After spending hours looking at beautiful stationery from our fellow craftsman in the USA, we were inspired to introduce something new to the world of fine stationery over here in England. We have been producing fine stationery for decades, but we have always thought it is missing something. Colour. Luxury stationery is often ivory and cream with beautiful black and blue print. Sometimes people opt for gold or silver print, but colour seems to be forgotten about.

Rather than just introduce single colours into their stationery they decided to use multiple colours. ‘Again, this has been done before, but what if we could mix these colours up and create something exceptionally stunning?’ explains Lewis. ‘This is when our Ombre Collection was born. ‘We are able to mix any two or three colours on the same print run on our luxe papers and boards to create stunning colour gradients.’

However if you think ombre wedding invitations just involves a different way of printing, think again. ‘Stationery, mainly invitations are not just about the text on the invitation itself. It’s about how it feels, how it looks, how it is perceived by your guests,’ explains Lewis. ‘This is when we started thinking about another aspect of the card, the edge. If we can print beautiful stationery with ombre effect text and images, could we apply the same idea to the edging? One of our master printers has come up with a method to do this, which is almost as eye catching as the print itself, especially when the cards are displayed in a stack. We then started experimenting with different gradient directions, stripes and patterns.’

Ombre wedding invitations are perfect for summer celebrations.

It should go without saying that your wedding invitation sets the tone/style of your big day. The moment your wedding invitation lands on the doorsteps of your wedding guests, they begin to form an impression about your forthcoming wedding. Ombre wedding invitations are simply perfect for summer celebrations as they add a touch of colour into the proceedings. If for example pink and blue are part of your colour scheme, these colours can be incorporated into your ombre wedding invitations.
