Wedding Season 2017!

The 2016 wedding season is drawing to an end and I’m starting to meet with lovely couples who are getting married in spring/summer 2017 and are getting ready to order their invitations.

I look back and reflect on this past wedding season, and it truly was an amazing year for custom invitation design. The majority of our work focused on exquisite and unique stationery for each wedding.  We also did a lot of coordinating “day of” stationery and favours. This allowed us to expand our imaginations and have a little fun!

Every bride and groom definitely has their own style and we certainly did a little bit of everything!  Laser cut, glitter, gold foiling, letterpress, boxed invitations, forest themed, Paris themed, floral, die cut papers and more.  Napkins and matches are also a fantastic “blast from the past” that many couples ordered as wedding favours!  I can happily say we fulfilled every request and our couples left very pleased!

I’m updating my website and photos of these beautiful designs will be uploaded soon.

So what’s in store for the 2017 wedding season?

There doesn’t seem to be one specific trend or colour so far.

Of course, we have our Carslon Craft, Wedding Star and Envelopments Collections, plus 100s of our own speciality designs that incorporate laser cut, brooches, lace, glitter, embossed papers, etc.  The options in our studio are absolutely endless! Believe me when you come in and see the invitation choices you will get lost!

It seems, however, that the majority of couples will want custom invitations that relate to their specific style and taste.

But that’s what DiM Designs is all about! We don’t want to you open a book and choose an ordinary card (although none of our cards are ordinary!)  You are not ordinary nor is your wedding.  Every bride and groom is extraordinary and desire original designs that have not been seen before! That’s why we do not charge design fees or set up fees!

Laser cut invitations and glitter papers will continue to trend this year, but with more detailed inserts and layering of speciality papers.  I also think lace and brooches will be popular!

Stay tuned for photos from some of our 2017 Collection as we continue to update the website.
