Your wedding invitations are the first glimpse into your big day, a little peek into the wonder that your wedding day will bring. It should be exciting, memorable and most importantly an extension of your special dream day as well as your personalities and love.
Your wedding day is the most important day of your lives, and every bride and grooms wants their wedding invitations to stand out. You might try to match your wedding theme with your unique personality while keeping it current with the trends and times. During this process, it is important to know which types of trendy wedding invite designs and styles are available out there for a truly customised wedding invitation or a designer look. Here are some ways to stay trendy!
Personalising with Colour
A splash of colour goes a long way, especially with Emerald Green being the front runner, and bold rainbow hues, luxurious jewel tones and metallic shades, as well as muted neutrals bringing up the rear. If you are opting for a singular choice of colour or a few for your wedding invitations & stationery, it’s always a good idea for it to complement one another as well as the wedding theme colours, whether you are opting for a traditional or modern wedding invitation style.
Handmade Invitations & Embellishments
Handmade wedding invitations can be distinguished into two main groups, one being DIY wedding invitations involving the bridal couple’s creativity and the other, professional designers putting together a beautiful design. In both instances, you are able to put to use quality card or paper and various embellishments and trims to make the handmade wedding invite creation ‘pop’, with the help of craft paper, satin ribbons, diamante buckles and much more.
A photograph is a moment captured in time, right? Why not capture a beautiful moment with your fiancé and have it sent to your invitees as a save the date, doubling it up as a keepsake too? Hone in your photojournalistic creative side and consult with a photographer to come up with a beautiful moment to share.
Typography has a beautiful manner to itself, its fluid, sensual and expressive at the same time, especially with scripted font facing, when compared with serif and san serif fonts, as it adds personality to each letter and stroke. Add a beautiful touch to your wedding invitations & stationery with typography inspired by different eras, and times.
They are making a comeback! Taking a page out of the 50s and 60s, retro patterns from polka dots, geometric & abstract shapes, gingham, paisley and many more are coming back in style and are perfect for a fun and hip wedding, with an invitation design styled to carry on the same playful feel. You can carry the same retro styled theme throughout your wedding stationery suite, but remember that you do not overdo it with these patterns, especially if you have chosen bold or striking colours. Sometimes, less is more!
