Queensland Handcrafted Wedding Invitations: How to Choose the Perfect Colour Theme


QUEENSLAND, Australia April, 2013 – Planning a wedding is a dream that most girls start in their teenage years. However, as adults, the actual planning can quickly turn into a nightmare as couples no longer get to simply dream, but must make decisions on each and every detail of their big day – from the venue to the wedding cake; from the guest list to the wedding band or perhaps wedding singer; from the flowers to the wedding invitations. Everything must be perfect. There is one place that offers custom-designed and handcrafted wedding invitations in Queensland – Blis Design.

Bonnie Wilkins, designer of Queensland handcrafted wedding stationery and owner of Blis Design says, “Working out what colours to use in your wedding invitations can be tricky! There are many ways to find inspiration and my role is to gently guide couples around the many different choices to ensure that you and your partner can agree on exactly how you want your wedding represented. Following through on the design and colours of your wedding invitation can be a fantastic way of uniting your wedding styling and colours – from the ceremony to the reception through to your thank-you cards. Even working backwards to a save-the-date card is possible if you choose.”

Here are some tips on how to choose the perfect colours for personalised handcrafted wedding invitations:

  • Use the bridesmaid’s dresses as inspiration. Choosing the colours and designs for the bridesmaids is half the battle. Use these colours as the launching point for the colours of the invitations and wedding stationery.
  • Discuss the pairings of colours and textures with the stationery designer; these colours and textures evoke various feelings or moods.
  • Try and avoid an overly matched colour scheme. Wedding flowers matched to cake matched to stationery equals boring. Choose different shades of the colours being used or introduce additional colours.
  • Use the colours in the palette in unexpected ways. Use colour printing instead of black or use a ribbon to add splashes of colour to the bonbonniere boxes.
  • Be flexible and experiment with the invitations – if there isn’t a paper available in exactly the right colour, use graphic elements to add it in on top of neutral colours such as charcoal, silver, or white.
  • Take a cue from styles used at home. Bonnie suggests that for those who live in a minimalist home, a highly decorated handcrafted wedding invitation probably won’t be a reflection of their taste as a couple, so their invitation designer should ensure the invitations suit their preferences and personalities.

Bonnie recounts, “One of my couples had an elegant and simple theme of black and orange – the bridesmaids were dressed in black Breakfast at Tiffany inspired cocktail dresses while the bride and her bridesmaids all carried orange tulips as a nod to the groom’s Dutch heritage.”

Nicole and Daniel, a couple from East Ipswich were quite pleased with Bonnie’s work and said, “Thank you Bonnie for your assistance in helping us make our day truly special. We have received many compliments regarding the stationery.”

Not only can Blis Design provide couples with custom designed fully-assembled invitation suites but also comprehensive, Do-It-Yourself (DIY) kits that take all the guesswork out and keep costs down so that couples can focus on other and more important details as the wedding planning continues. Bonnie takes the time to individually get to know each and every one of her clients by sitting down for a one-on-one 2 hour design consultation where she looks at a whole range of wedding details such as fonts, wording, and embellishment ideas to ensure that the happy couple get the most perfect handcrafted wedding stationery in Queensland.
