2019 Invitation Trends

by | Jan 15, 2019 | Invitations

What is on trend for 2019 in Wedding Invitations?  The answer really is everything!

Lace continues to be hugely popular right now as brides are looking to incorporate it into their weddings by way of their wedding dresses, invitation ensembles, and reception décor.  Consider selecting an invitation with a lace design similar to that of your gown.  Some custom stationers can replicate the look of your lace for a truly romantic look.

Garden theme invitations radiate the freshness of springtime and are often the choice of ”Boho” brides.  These brides are opting for florals, a wreath or a garland type vine motif that can be used throughout their day. An even more simplistic approach is focusing solely on a favorite minimalist motif. Start by accenting your save the dates with this motif, then incorporate it in the invitations, as well as on both place cards and programs.  This consistent theme adds a touch of vintage charm and unity.

For barn and rustic weddings, wood is a natural element that engaged couples are naturally drawn to. Think of duplicating the gorgeous beams inside a barn with a paper designed to look like natural wood grain.  Wood also provides an “earthy vibe” that captures both warmth and charm.

Laser-cut designs remain the choice of brides with an eye for art. The intricate design is detailed through a stunning laser-cutting technique. It’s often combined with a plain card base surrounded by the laser design. This hot trend is very costly, but worth every jaw dropping penny.

Foil, glitter and metallic invitations are becoming a favorite of modern brides.  Think glamour and sparkle are necessary for celebrating? Then, your stationery should incorporate the energy of metals. It can really add a fun, “wow factor” to your special day.

For the organized bride, pocket designs are a must have. Layered cards, highlighting every important detail of your event are nestled inside a secure compartment. Guests love having an orderly place to find information.  The best part is that the color options and themes are endless.

The use of typography is also taking the wedding invitation industry by storm. It may be because of the many ways it can be designed to alter the way it is perceived. If you love a playful look, with an accent of letter styles, a bold typography layout may be perfect for you. If sophistication is your goal, then calligraphy will likely be your preference.

Finally, simple elegance is always on trend.  Classic, thick paper with traditional colors and fonts never goes out of style.  Good taste remains a timeless favorite.
