It’s very easy when planning anything on a large scale that details will start to fall through the cracks. You can easily start with one vision but it may not become fully complete in the way you originally imaged. When choosing to elope you’re able to focus on the details that mean the most to you. And you can invest in quality pieces that mean so much to you. So how can couples incorporate consistent and quality details throughout their elopement day?
Everyone’s budgets are different and maybe your budget doesn’t allow you 150+ hand-lettered wedding announcements. But if you only need one to be used for photo purposes and a keepsake purpose then the world of calligraphy is your oyster. You can choose a high quality professional to create a truly stunning invitation and announcement suite. The same thought could be applied to anything else you might want to have incorporated.
Style & Aesthetic
The first thing when deciding and thinking about your details and choosing what kind of theme or style that you want. Do you want bright and colorful or maybe a soft pastel pallet? Once you’ve decided on the sort of theme or style you can start to narrow down the exact colors as well as elements you’d like to incorporate. Pinterest is great for this sort of research.
Trust the professionals
When working with professionals they can definitely be a good resource in helping your vision stay on its course. When you have your theme chosen you’ll be able to incorporate its details into the colors of your flowers, the lines and shapes on your invitation suite, the style of your dress, and the other details.
Pulling it all together
Myself and a few other vendors decided to put together an example of how couples can incorporate consistent and quality details throughout their elopement day. This shoot took place in the fall season so we used the inspiration of a dark and moody inspired aesthetic to base the details around. For example, when looking at the photos you can see that the invitation has geometric lines, dark colored envelopes, and gold accents. When moving through the photos you can see gold used throughout, accented on the candles, the flower piece behind the “altar” and other small nuances. You can see the modern and geometric shapes and lines from the invitation suite used as inspiration for the place cards, the table number, even the style of the Bride’s dress with the high slit and very clean dress without flower or lacy embellishments.
In the end it all ties together to create a very cohesive look.
It’s my hope that this shoot shows couples who want to elope how couples can incorporate consistent and quality details throughout their elopement day.
