Bold, hot colors are giving way to neutral tones in shades of champagne, pale meadow green, frost blue, creamy vanilla or soft magnolia pink, bringing their sophisticated elegance to this seasons wedding invitations. Adorn your wedding invitations with beautiful metal charms for a romantic feel or sparkling crystal brads for a modem touch.

Modern black & white designs are hot on the runway and the graphic designs make a contemporary, yet classic statement. We love wedding invitations featuring elegant black and white sashes, available in modern and classic patterns. The 100% recycled fine paper sashes pair beautifully with neutrals, tropical brights or rich traditional colors and create luxurious layers that are wrapped like a beautiful gift.

Teal is also of-the-moment for wedding invitations, a colour both cool and rich, showing up in the latest fashions. Teal is gorgeous paired with crisp white and sparkling silver embellishments.

Dramatic red in shades of bright poppy and rich scarlet are a growing trend in wedding invitations and the gorgeous hue is fabulous paired with gold and black adornments.

Romance is back in a big way with lovely, romantic patterns delicately layered with translucent vellum. Fabulous lace wraps or intricate charm embellishments would also make enchanting wedding invitations.

Earth-friendly invitation paper will always be the smart choice in wedding invitations and hopefully the trend will continue. Look for tree-free and fine papers and envelopes made from 100% post consumer fibers.

Seven of the hottest trends in wedding invitations for ideas on unique ways to invite your guests.

Wedding Invitations and Paper

Forget the plain cardstock! Contemporary invitation designers from Invitation House feature papers of all types and textures. Beautiful embossing, felt textures, silk threads, chiffons, foiled patterns, even satin and velvet fabrics are used with great effect. Look at specialised handmade paper with all kinds of exquisite detail. This could be anything from rose petals to twine, or chilli peppers to coffee, embedded in the paper fibre. Invitation House has an amazing range of wedding paper- patterned, metallic, translucent and handmade paper with floral and metal embedding for stunning and stylish wedding invitations, thank you cards and reception place cards.

Wedding Invitations and Colour

Old world wedding invitations are ivory, white or ecru but new world versions are every colour of the rainbow. Silver and gold are frequently used as the theme colours for contemporary designs but pink, aqua and lavender are gaining in popularity too. Coloured inks are also en vogue, with brown ink on pink paper the favourite for wedding invitations at present. Choose the colour to tie in with your personalised theme.

Wedding Invitations and Shape

Traditional wedding invitations are often 5” square but a tall, vertical rectangle is currently the most popular shape.

Wedding Invitations and Fonts

Nowadays, you're no longer restricted to the old-fashioned, ornate, cursive fonts for wedding invitations (though they do look extremely elegant). Modern clean font lines suit modern weddings but whatever font you choose , make sure you limit it to two types only on your wedding invitation.

Wedding Invitations and Wording

Whilst some couples continue to use traditional wedding invitation wording, many are taking the liberty of personalising their text with the addition of a poem or a romantic quote.

Wedding Invitations and Delivery

Wedding invitations go out to guests in envelopes right? Maybe in the old world but in the new world, expect the unexpected. Some modern couples are having puzzles made of their invitations, injecting some fun into the formalities. Some are packaging off video versions, giving 'personally inviting' a whole new meaning. This invitations supplier creates to your specifications which are then placed in intricate, hand-painted bottles with sand and shells or sparkles and confetti, thrilling all you invite.

Wedding Invitations and The Rise of DIY

With so many different types of paper, twine, ribbon, stamps and other wedding stationery to choose from, lots of couples are choosing to make their own, personalised wedding invitations. Invitation House offers everything you need to make your dream wedding invitations with over 1000 different papers, cards and envelopes to choose from.

Environmentally Friendly Invitations

With the focus on global warming and other environmental concerns, couples are trying to do their part and selecting recycled paper invitations. Whilst recycled papers may not be quite as white as others, considered coloured recycled papers.  Trendy textured recycled papers are a great alternative for beach and outdoor weddings.

Red Carpet Glamour

Gone are the days of decorating your wedding invitations with ribbon alone – the HOT trend for weddings is glamour and what better way to continue that theme through to your wedding invitations is with exotic lace, silver charms and clasps, exquisite beads and anything else that oozes ‘bling’.  And for the ultimate in glamour, you just can’t go past getting the expertly engraved invitation to provide the perfect finishing touch.

Colours

Monochromatic is IN! Whilst whites and ivories are a classic choice and will remain popular for traditional weddings, modern couples are combining three unlikely shades or hues of a single colour together to add a contemporary look to their wedding invitations.  Check out these samples below:

Seasonally inspired colour themes such as pinks, lavenders and pastel greens will never go out of fashion, however if you really want to make a modern statement, consider a trendy colour medley of plum and tangerine, navy and lime, fuchsia and orange, deep Merlot and moss green, chocolate brown and taupe or even the new jewel tone trends of rich purples, golds, oranges and reds.

Unusual Shaped Invitations

Whether it is a formal or traditional wedding, today’s couple are looking for something different. Round, bi-fold or fold-out cards are becoming popular choices amongst brides and grooms this year. And with the growing popularity of destination weddings, couples are really using their creative juices, sending out invitations that reflect their exotic destination; a textured sandy beach invitation for a tropical beach wedding or an Eiffel Tower for a Parisian wedding.

Invitation Artwork & Design

For truly unique, stylish and inspirational wedding invitations, consider working with a graphic designer to create the ultimate one-of-a-kind wedding invitation that stands out from the rest and captures your personal style.

URLs on Invitations

One fast growing trend is couples placing their engagement photos on wedding websites and ways to RSVP online and even putting together their own wedding website featuring pictures of themselves and details about their wedding.  When they send out their wedding invitations they include the URL to their wedding page so guests can easily find it.

Rain Cards

As more and more couples are opting to take advantage of Australia’s amazing alfresco climate and selecting outdoor settings, such as beaches and public gardens, it's important to have a backup plan just in case it rains.  A growing wedding invitation trend is to include rain cards to advise guests where the ceremony and/or reception will be held in case of bad weather, including a contact telephone number that guests can call to find out whether or not the wedding has been moved to the alternative location.

Top Ten Wedding Invitation Trends

Your invitation is your guest’s introduction to your wedding, so it should set the mood for the big day and create a sense of anticipation. Spend some time looking for a wedding invitation that really reflects the wedding you are planning, and suits your theme or wedding style. If you are stuck for inspiration, here are ten of the latest trends in wedding invite design to give you some ideas:

 

  1. Mixing patterns
    Bold patterns such as stripes, polka dots, oriental flower prints and paisley have been big news in wedding invitations for some time, but the latest trend is to mix two or three of these patterns, in the same colour scheme, for a really eye catching invite.

  2. 3D texture
    Adding texture to your invites with fabrics, pressed flowers, twisted wire, or layered card is a fashionable way to create a unique design that will stand out from traditional flat printed cards.

  3. Injecting personality
    Handmade cards are increasing in popularity, and couples are using family photos, caricatures, and images of places they have visited to create bespoke designs. As well as cutting costs, handmade cards are more personal and can be tailored slightly for each guest.

  4. Sparkle
    Crystals and gemstones are finding their way into every element of wedding design, and wedding invites are no different. A couple of small stick on crystals can lift the design on any printed card, and a popular option is to have a clean and simple white card with an added ribbon belt and rhinestone buckle.

  5. Relaxed wording
    Modern couples are moving away from traditional invitation wording, and creating less formal invitations. While it used to be customary for invitations to be issued by the couple’s parents, many couples are choosing to send the invites directly from themselves. Formal phrases such as ‘we request the honour of your presence’ are also being replaced with simpler sentences such as ‘we’d love you to come and celebrate with us’.

  6. Modern monograms
    A monogram of the bride’s initials has been a wedding invite staple for many years, but a new trend for sleek logo style monograms, incorporating both sets of initials or even the couple’s names, has created invitations that are cheeky but still formal.

  7. Going green
    Eco friendly invitations are gathering popularity as going green becomes the theme for many weddings. Recycled and handmade paper make beautiful bases for invitations, and natural materials such as leaves, twigs and pressed flowers can add colour and texture. You can even e-mail your invites to save paper.

  8. Bold colours
    Traditional white may still be used for very formal weddings, but many couples are opting for bold shades to suit their wedding theme or season. Select up to three complementary colours from your wedding palette to make your invite stand out from the crowd. While hot pink and aqua were popular invitation colours until recently, this season sees a shift towards muted shades such as plum or deep red.

  9. Pocket it
    The standard envelope has had its day with wedding invitations; these days as much thought goes into the design of the invitation’s wrapping as the card itself. From fabric pouches to coloured clear plastic pockets, these are designed to hold the invitation, a reply card, directions and accommodation details, and gift list information.

  10. E-invites
    Tech Savvy couples might prefer to issue a multi-media electronic invite complete with soundtrack, animation, and video, rather than a traditional printed card delivered by post. Others are using social networks to spread the word about their wedding, and provide links to their wedding website.
 

Trends in wedding invite design


You will probably want to tie in the design of your wedding invitations with the overall scheme of your wedding, and many couples choose coordinating invitations, place names, and thank you cards. Traditional wedding invitations are often being pushed aside to make way for contemporary designs, and here are a few of the latest trends in wedding invitations:
  • Many brides are choosing to go green with recycled or handmade paper invitations. The use of natural materials such as pressed leaves or flowers is also becoming increasingly popular.

  • Fun, bold patterns that include polka dots and stripes are really making wedding invitations stand out this season.

  • A single flower is proving a popular wedding invitation motif, and this can often inspire the whole theme of the wedding, providing a consistent design element throughout the stationery and decorations.

  • Pocket style invitations, or seal and send invitations are becoming very popular. With this type of invitation the envelope forms a part of the invitation itself, and wraps around other elements of the invitation such as directions, wedding list details, and reply card.

Many couples are rejecting traditional white invitations and using a whole range of other colours. Here are a few of the latest colours, depending on the season of your wedding:
  • Winter wedding invitations often use a strong colour such as onyx black, forest green or plum, combined with silver and white.

  • Spring wedding invitations tend to incorporate paler hues such as sky blue, leaf green, or magnolia pink.

  • Summer wedding invitations are available in vivid shades of apple green, aqua blue, bright yellow, and sunset orange.

  • Autumn wedding invitations are more muted using rusted orange, deep scarlet and chocolate brown.

If you are choosing traditional white the type of white can make all the difference. Bright white is exactly what it says and is very fresh contemporary look. Ecru is a warmer tone, giving a more traditional and elegant feel to your invitation. White, which is actually usually more of a vanilla colour, is the most popular choice and provides a tasteful middle ground.
