One of the things we love most about stationery design is that it’s always changing, each wedding season bringing new trends and fresh ideas to incorporate into your invitations. We especially love the idea of taking a classic element, such as calligraphy, and adding a new twist to it, making it feel fun and unexpected. One of these little twists we have been head over heels in love with is featuring the names in large calligraphy or a calligraphy inspired font, creating a huge statement! It’s your big day so why shouldn’t your names be the highlight of the invitation design?
We love the idea of using beautiful foil colors to highlight seasonal motifs like stars and snowflakes, providing tons of sparkle and warmth to a wintery design.
Using neutral colors (think metallics, grays, and taupes!) and playing around with calligraphy or gorgeous script fonts can really set the tone for the big day. Don’t be afraid to add in some pattern and flourishes to create even more visual interest!
Taking cues from nature is never a bad idea and we love how these whimsical trees add an element of fun to this design.
Using a crisp color palette and bold fonts can really make a statement!
We love the idea of adding some pizzazz to your stationery, setting the mood for the vibrant celebration to come! Feel free to also break away from a neutral color palette and have some fun!
A blind printed pattern of snow will really soften the design and create the gentle, peaceful feeling of winter.
We all decorate our homes with various trimmings this time of year so why not add textural embellishments like belly bands to your design? We love a gorgeous laser cut pattern or a cloth band, adding loads of warmth to a classic design.
