• Invitations 101: Wedding Stationery Trends

    We've searched Pinterest, countless wedding inspiration websites, and hip paper blogs to find what is trending for 2015 wedding invitations. We are pumped that these are the "in" designs because they bring classic style up to date and give brides a fresh way to share celebration details.

    Foil Stamping Move over gold - Silver and Pearl Foil are taking center stage of the foil stamping craze. We knew silver was going to make it is way back to paper goods. So many brides are choosing grey as a wedding color and silver is a natural match. (We’ve also seen silver all over the runways too, from J.Crew to Couture wedding gowns) Another popular choice this year for foil stamping will be a pearl foil on white paper. This tone on tone look is elegant and classy.

    Watercolor This trend is definitely on a crescendo this year. Watercolor botanicals, venues, ombre washes, and patterns; we’ve seen it on gift wrap, greeting cards, journals, and some wedding paper. Now, it is HUGE and we’re not sad about it. There is something about this artistic look that makes our hearts flutter. It can have such a unique and custom look. Brides can order paper that is printed with the effect or can hire an artist to custom paint each piece.

    It’s All About the Font We know it can be overwhelming to sift through font after font when you are designing your invites, but this is one detail you don’t want to overlook. More than ever, font is boss. It shows your personality and sets the tone for the your big day’s style. Handwritten and calligraphy fonts seem to be the most popular right now. But if you are having a modern affair you will obviously want to stick to clean lines. Check out this blog post by one of our favorite invitation designers, Bella Figura, to help you make that hard decision.

    Think Outside the Box Rectangle and square invites are the most traditional and popular, but we are seeing designers use Die-cut shapes more and more. Your guests will be delighted to open your invite and will happily display them on their refrigerator. If you choose a paper design with curved edges - it shows you have a bold style and a fresh way of inviting your loved ones to your wedding.

    Flesh Tones Every year Pantone picks a “color of the year” and although 2015’s hasn’t been named yet - several flesh tones are in the running. The Stationery Show illustrated this trend with some toned down paperie and ink designs. The look is natural and understated beauty. Picture bridesmaids in various shades of cream, flowers with a lot of free flowing greenery and cream blooms, and invitation designs of beige on white, white ink on kraft paper, or light creamy blush inks printed on ecru. The result is a heavenly, romantic feel.

    Poster Style Read all about it - brides and grooms are using old-fashioned poster style invitations to announce their big day. These invitations are great for less formal affairs. Different fonts and ink colors tell the story of the couple in a clever way and will communicate the fun and laid back style of the bride and groom.
