The knot.com came out with the newest invitation trends for the new year! I'm so excited about all of them!
Here are the latest delivery of wedding invitation ideas:
Pinstripes are a hot look now, whether they're vertical, horizontal, multicolored, or in shades of your signature hue. Our pick? An elegant script style juxtaposed with a playful pinstripe border -- the perfect blend of classic and contemporary.
Embellishing your invitation with small rhinestones, tiny pearl-toned beads, or miniature Swarovski crystals makes a low-key invitation style fashionable. Our favorite? A refined invitation sporting clean type and subtle colors that gets glam with a rhinestone buckle.
Though the use of color has been a wedding trend for years, white is making a comeback in an unexpected way. We’re seeing bright color card stock with sleek white type. What we found? Papers in fabulously rich purple hues with white lettering.
Stressing over whether the response card goes inside its envelope and over the direction card? You'll be glad to know today’s invitation designers are making pouches and pockets to keep your papers in order. Our selection is a bifold invitation that keeps all of the pieces neatly tucked away. Bonus: You can introduce your wedding colors with this concept -- choose one color for the card stock, another for the type and ribbon, and a third for the envelopes.
Nothing says wedding like flowers, especially close-to-the-real-thing ones. Check out the three-dimensional orchid that substituted for a traditional engraved floral print on white stock. Tip: For the ultimate in personalization, put your signature bloom on your invitations too.
Using unique materials for your invitation is the newest idea on the
market: We've seen invites stitched into fabric or burned onto wood. The ultimate in modern style? A superchic acrylic invitation.
Move over motifs…allover patterns are gaining popularity. Your
invitation designer could create a pattern based on your gown, for instance -- a ring of rosettes, a square of lace appliqué, or a beaded vine. We fell in love with this vintage-inspired floral pattern.
What’s the new take on the monogram? Simplify it, like on this
traditional invite that pairs her first initial with his. Since you’re not married until the officiant announces you as husband and wife, if you're changing your name(s), save the new monogram for the reception -- and the rest of your lives!
Saving the suspense is so over: Why not introduce your wedding motif on your invitation envelopes? Our top pick? These midnight blue dragonflies are perfect for your special delivery -- and every aspect of your day.
