Nothing quite compares to the elegance of ecru, which is why it’s a favorite for sure among the Invitations by Dawn team members. We’ve put together some gorgeous wedding ideas, answered some questions and shared a few tips about this look.

The Ecru Tradition
The Oxford American Dictionary describes ecru as “the light beige color of unbleached linen”. In the world of fine stationery, ecru has been the name for cream-colored paper for decades. We continue this tradition by referring to our cream and ivory wedding invitations as ecru. As you shop, you’ll see why this color is so special and how not only the name but also the entire ecru look is timeless and beautiful.

Epitome of Elegance
Take a look at the wedding invitation we chose to accompany this look. See how the smooth ecru color actually enhances the embossed details? The creamy hue brings warmth to the design and creates a classic backdrop for the wedding invitation wording. Imagine this throughout your wedding and you’ll start to understand why ecru is still first in class for elegant wedding invitations.

A Timeless Look
When you look back on your wedding pictures and see the classic look of ecru echoing through every element of your wedding from the bridesmaid dresses to the table settings, you will be so glad you chose this timeless color scheme. A touch of crisp greenery with cream-colored roses along with some natural elements is all the color you need to create something sensational and everlasting.
