        A. Floral Motifs

        • Wildflowers: Use illustrations or watercolor designs of wildflowers, which are popular for summer weddings and align with the plantable paper’s purpose.

        • Tropical Flowers: Hibiscus, orchids and other tropical blooms add a vibrant, exotic touch.

          B. Nature-Inspired Themes

          • Botanical: Incorporate leaves, vines and other botanical elements for a fresh, green aesthetic.

            • Geometric Shapes: Modern and clean, geometric patterns can add a stylish touch without overwhelming the plantable paper.
            • Minimalist: Less is more. A minimalist design with clean lines and simple fonts keeps the focus on the eco-friendly aspect.

            3. Select Complementary Typography

            A. Fonts and Style

            • Calligraphy and Script: Elegant and timeless, these fonts are perfect for a romantic and formal feel.
            • Sans Serif: Clean and modern, sans serif fonts work well for minimalist and contemporary designs.
            • Handwritten Fonts: Add a personal touch with handwritten-style fonts, giving your invitations a casual, intimate vibe.

            B. Font Colors

            • Classic Black or Dark Gray: Ensures readability and contrast, suitable for any color palette.
            • Gold or Silver Foil: Adds a touch of luxury and pairs beautifully with pastel and neutral colors.

            4. Design Tips for Plantable Paper

            A. Paper Type and Texture

            • Seed Paper: Ensure the paper is of good quality and embedded with seeds that are suitable for your climate. Wildflower seeds are versatile and popular.

            • Texture: Embrace the natural texture of the seed paper, which adds an organic, tactile element to your invitations.

            B. Printing Methods

            • Eco-Friendly Inks: Use soy-based or other eco-friendly inks that are safe for the environment and won’t harm the seeds.
            • Minimal Ink Coverage: Less ink ensures that the seeds can still grow. Opt for designs that highlight the natural beauty of the paper.

            5. Adding Personal Touches

            A. Custom Illustrations

            • Personal Symbols: Include meaningful symbols or illustrations of you as a couple, such as a shared hobby or a significant location.
            • Monogram: Create a custom monogram or logo that can be used across all your wedding stationery.

            B. Interactive Elements

            • Planting Instructions: Add a small, stylish card or include planting instructions as part of the invitation design, encouraging guests to plant their invitations.

            • Scented Inks: Consider using scented inks that add a sensory element, such as lavender or lemon.

            6. Sustainability and Practicality

            A. Planting Information

            • Clear Instructions: Ensure your guests know how to plant the invitations by including clear, concise instructions either on the back of the invitation or as a separate insert.
            • Seed Type Information: Let your guests know what type of seeds are embedded in the paper and any care tips.

            B. RSVP Options

            • Digital RSVPs: Encourage guests to RSVP online to reduce additional paper waste.
            • Seed Paper Response Cards: If you prefer traditional RSVPs, consider using plantable paper for response cards as well.


              Choosing the right colors and designs for your summer plantable wedding invitations involves a harmonious blend of aesthetic appeal and environmental consciousness. By selecting vibrant or soft seasonal colors, incorporating nature-inspired elements and paying attention to typography and sustainability, you can create invitations that not only set the perfect tone for your summer wedding but also positively impact the planet. Your guests will appreciate the thoughtfulness and beauty of these unique, eco-friendly invitations, making your wedding celebration even more memorable.

              What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
