Summer is fast approaching, which means weekend trips to the beach, fishing excursions on the boat, and lots and lots of weddings — obviously! Show off these stationery designs at your warm-weather celebration featuring ocean themes, anchor motifs, sea critters, and blue/green color schemes.

In addition to wedding invitations, designers at the 2013 National Stationery Show featured some fabulous new details for both the wedding ceremony and reception.  Some products included DIY elements to create unique looks, while others sold a wide range of themed items for couples planning everything from a rustic to traditional party.  Here are a few of the items you may want to order for your big day:

LACE ACCENTS

The Lace Mill by Someday Designs sells an extensive collection of fine laces in a wide range of widths.  You can trim votive and candle holders, seating and place cards, and pretty much anything you can think of with this traditional bridal fabric.  The company also sells lace attached to paper, which you can paste an invitation or menu card to – perfect for anyone DIYing their wedding details!

Whatever look you’re planning for your wedding there will be an invitation design that conveys that feeling to your guests.  It’s very important that your wedding invitation gives your guests a glimpse of what they can expect so they know what to wear and look forward to.  For example, a classic white or ecru invite with black font for a Saturday night wedding will convey a black-tie/formal affair, while a brightly colored invitation with palm trees will send a more laidback vibe.  Here are some of our favorite wedding invitations by theme:

CLASSIC/TRADITIONAL by William Arthur

You don’t need to stick with ecru and black for a traditional look any more. This blush pink with copper invitation from the William Arthur Wedding III Album is very formal with its classic layout and wording.
