Setting the Tone

Your invitations are often the first inkling your guests have of what your wedding will be like. Some weddings are stiff and formal affairs, foreshadowed by stiff and formal invitations in black and white with a nod to gold or silver. The invitation for a destination wedding in an exotic location will probably feature rich tropical colors and make you long for some time on the beach. A rustic wedding in the backyard will probably make use of natural papers and neutral or muted colors - perhaps with a bolder accent.

This invitation was for a bride who got married in her parents' back yard. It was the wedding she had always dreamed of, complete with the perfect groom and her close and loving family gathered round. This invitation used watercolor paper which has a bumpy grain unlike any other. It is sturdy, and textured, and gives you amazing possibilities with ink and water. Generally the colors will be muted with soft edges. It is a very gentle presentation.

Your paper can improve or degrade your invitation. Good paper allows your images and text to stand out. Inferior paper can allow them to bleed or smudge. Some people won't notice these details but the ones who do will appreciate them. From the invitations to the envelopes - quality shows. Possibility Paper uses only quality paper for our invitations. We want your invitations to show your guests how much you value their presence at your wedding.
