Itís your wedding day, and you want it to be spectacular. There are many options to help your wedding day memorable not only for you, but for all your guests, and one of the first ways is through your wedding invitation. So, youíve set the date for your big day and now itís time for the fun part Ė getting the word out! Not so long ago, choosing invitations was a rather arduous task. There were magazines of invitation styles to look through and they all seemed about the same, except for the color. With home printers and online services that have come along with advances in technology, the options for wedding invitations are endless. Your invitation can be as unique and personalized as you desire.

A perfect way to capture your sophisticated style is with the use of ribbon in your wedding invitation design. Start with a bright white card, topped with a silver foil piece. Put an elegant black and white photo of the happy couple on the top and place a sheer top layer of vellum with your wording. Punch the layers of paper and photograph and join them with a smooth satin ribbon. Tie the ribbon in a bow or leave the ends loose. The satin ribbon will accent your classy photo, while wrapping your design in classic elegance.

You donít have to stop with just the invitation. Follow through on your theme into your reception by making ribbon accented place cards. Ribbon not only adds a nice decorative touch to an otherwise traditional blank place card design, but is also a quick and easy way to incorporate event theme colors. Using a hand held ribbon stitch punch, punch a hole in your place card where you wish to thread your ribbon through. Thread ribbon through the holes you punched and tie ribbon into a knot to secure it in place around the holes, and simply leave it as is, or tie it into a decorative bow. Leave ribbon tails long, or trim them short. The choice is yours! What a nice and sophisticated touch to your special wedding day.

Making your own invitations and place cards with a personal touch will make them all the more special both to you and your guests. Be sure and make some extra invitations and bride and groom place cards to keep as mementos. You will look back years later and be glad of those small, special touches you did to make your wedding day memorable.
