Wedding invitations are one of the most essential parts of planning a wedding because they set the tone of what guests are to expect on the wedding day. The invitation can be as creative as the couple wants it to be, which can make the process of making a wedding card fun and enjoyable!
As the wedding day approaches, there comes some questions. Will it be formal or casual? Will it be during the day or at night? Is there a theme for what they should wear? A wedding invitation says it all, especially when it comes to a theme. From mixed metals to beautiful, nature stationery, we have created a list of wedding stationery ideas to inspire you!
Metallics have become a popular trend to mix into wedding invitations and stationery designs. The combination of metallic colors like gold, silver, and copper is one of the top wedding invitation trends for 2019. Another new twist on metallics is rose gold! Rose gold can shine against a solid background. As the picture above suggests, the metallic hues are best placed over a white or light colored background for a subtle and chic stationery idea!
A watercolor wedding invitation can include a painting of the wedding venue or imagery that reflects the wedding’s destination, the wedding’s theme, or the couple. The personalized image can be displayed on the insert card or the outside of the envelope where guests can enjoy a beautiful watercolor illustration!
We recommend light pale hues to compliment your watercolor painting, with gold-foil lining on the outside of your card.
For weddings that have a more natural look, consider leaves and greenery rather than your typical colored blooms. Couples can choose from a range of leaf silhouettes from thin and narrow leaves to large and bold palms. There are dozens of designs that incorporate leaves and greenery, including the one’s shown above.
Palms and leaves can best be seen on a white background. To add something a little different, go for a bright green envelope to stand out amongst the rest of the cards!
Monograms are a classic wedding detail that can be created in a variety of ways. A monogram can interlock a couple’s initials, so as to symbolize the love between each other (aww!). The font style can be cursive, bold, or both depending on how traditional the couple wants it to be.
If you have a classic wedding style, then interlocking monograms are perfect! The writing on the card can be big or small, and include the information regarding names, places, and date of the wedding. For the monogram portion on this card, we recommend your choice of color on a solid white or ivory for a classic touch!
