Let’s go back three years…
So, I’ve just picked the Adinkra theme and we are just slapping each other on the back. I mean, it’s not a common theme at all not to mention, it’s a part of culture we can expose our family to! Well guess what? When it came to shopping for an Adinkra themed invitation, this is what we found.
“Symbols of Adinkra”
Virtually, almost every search produced this particular wedding invitation! I attempted to go in-store to see if they had a different selection, but they didn’t. If there was a slight chance a store actually had an Adinkra invitation, it was the “Symbols of Adinkra”. Do you know that the title to this invitation is permanently etched into my brain. Don’t get me wrong, it was beautiful. However, the colors didn’t match our color scheme for the wedding and it was a tad dull for our personalities. Of course, three years later I have found that are some more beautiful options for the bride in planning. Heck maybe they just were hiding from me…
Like I’ve said before, I love this theme for the many different symbols, principals and meanings. Unfortunately, the selection for this theme is still scarce and very difficult to find in different colors other than the Earth tones, black/white and gold. If you truly want to use this theme in your wedding and the selection itself is not matching what you’re doing with your wedding… then it’s time for DIY. When you choose to DIY, you’re able to create your own style not to mention you can use any color you want. For those of you who are choosing to design your own invitation head on over to the Adinkra site where you can save the images to your computer!
