10 Wedding Invite Trends You Just Might Love

Your wedding stationary is the first item guests see of your plans, setting the tone for your event and giving them a glimpse of the glory to come. So they are not an item to be pushed to the bottom of your planning list. It’s important for your invites to not only reflect your wedding theme and decor, but also to reflect yourselves as a couple. Read: Make it personal! Always :) So here are some of the steal-worthy trends we found for wedding invites (and many of them overlap each other, they’re just soo popular!). Drum roll please!

1. Floral

You can never go wrong with a good flower. They are, after all, often the center of attention (aka your centerpieces lol) at a wedding. This trend is perfect for garden, rustic, and nature themes  :)

6. Art Deco aka Gatsby

This has become extremely popular look thanks to the release of the movie Gatsby and a certain fascination with the Prohibition. This is of course perfect for era-themed weddings (aka the 20s), Great Gatsby, and can achieve a modern or a vintage look.

10. Patterns

Be brave, be bold! Repeating any pattern that you love (dots, stripes, chevron, quatrefoil, diamonds, morrocan, etc) can certainly make a statement about your event and is easily continued on in other places (i.e linens, backdrops, cakes, bouquet ribbons, centerpieces). Perfect for modern, casual, and destination events.
