Many couples about to get married are drawn to a particular symbol for their big day. Whether is be hearts, rings, flowers…it’s usually something which you choose to represent you on your wedding stationery, from your save the date magnets to your thank you cards, so here’s our little guide to the most popular symbols for your wedding stationery.
A very popular symbol for stationery is a pair of wedding rings interlinked. The message that they portray is that of love and unity and a commitment to each other. Using wedding rings as a symbol on your save the date magnets tell everyone at first glance that there is an upcoming wedding.
Hearts are another very popular choice for couples about to be married. The heart is a hugely powerful symbol for wedding stationery with a very clear message of love. People will recognise the heart as a symbol for the love that you have for one another.
Beaches and tropical scenery usually tell people that you’re not about to get married on these shores! As beautiful as the United Kingdom can be, we don’t have many swaying palm trees and crystal clear waters lapping against white sand beaches! Telling people of your upcoming faraway nuptials is easily done with stationery of this sort – and if you choose them for your save the date magnets, they double up as a postcard on the fridge!
Whatever symbols you decide to involve in your wedding plans, choose something which has meaning for you and co-ordiante all of your wedding stationery accordingly.
We’re going to do a little series on wedding symbols and what they mean, which is really useful when deciding on your wedding stationery, for example your save the date magnets. By knowing what symbols mean, you can choose the symbol which best reflects the message you want to get across, and what reflects you as a couple. We begin with flowers…
The most traditional of flowers, the roses, is seen as the flower of love and is a very popular choice when it comes to wedding stationery. The rose is an ideal image to adorn the front of your save the date magnets and you can personalise it according to its colour, as different coloured roses mean different things: red is for love and romance, pink for grace and elegance, yellow for warmth and happiness, white for innocence and purity, orange for desire and enthusiasm, lavender for enchantment and love at first sight (our favourite!)
Of course there are many other flowers which you may want to consider for the design of your save the date magnets – lilies are very popular at the moment, as are gerberas with their vivid colours which seem full of Springtime.
Customising your save the date magnets to your own personal style is the best way of making your save the date magnets personal and individual.
Your save the date magnets can be customised in all sorts of ways. Whether you are looking for traditional, modern or unusual magnets to send out to your guests, you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for at The Card Gallery online.
