Trends

Before we launch into our huge list of invitations, it will be helpful to point out a few trends. These will help feed your creativity and teach you what you can expect clients to be looking for in a professional design.

Floral Design

A wedding isn’t complete without flowers. The same can be said about wedding invitations as well. Having a set of beautiful flowers decorating the design of your wedding invitations and save the date cards can add an extra bit of beauty to their overall look and feel.

It’s no wonder how quickly the floral design trend took over the wedding invitation designs. You can clearly see how stunning these designs look with those beautiful floral decorations.

Chalkboard

Chalkboard Wedding Invitation

The chalkboard design is a popular trend in greeting card designs. And it slowly made its way over to the wedding invitation over the last few months. Without a doubt, it’s a refreshing change that makes all kinds of wedding card designs look amazing.

The ability to highlight the text more clearly while keeping a minimalist look is what makes chalkboard designs truly one of a kind.

Watercolor Design

What makes watercolor designs more attractive is that it adds a certain authenticity to any kind of design. Especially when it comes to wedding invitations, a watercolor themed design makes it look more unique and hand-crafted than other types of designs.

Watercolor Wedding Invitation Set

Watercolor invitations also have a specific minimalist look that allows you to highlight the important sections of an invitation in a colorful background without sacrificing the beauty of the overall design.

Letterpress

Letterpress Wedding Invitation

By far the most popular trend I came across was letterpress printing. This relief printing technique uses an inked, raised printing plate to create an imprinting effect on text and images.

The result is a high quality, classic feel that is absolutely perfect for wedding invitations. It’s not always the cheapest route but it’s certainly a good way to impress your guests.

Vintage Typography

Another extremely popular trend is using a typographic treatment as the primary design feature. These layouts typically mix several types of old style typefaces and incorporate interesting word shapes and ornate line graphics.

As you can see in the example above, it’s hard to beat a good vintage type treatment. There’s just something so undeniably eye-catching about it!

Custom Illustrations

If you’re good with a pencil, wedding invitations provide the perfect outlet for your artistic genius. Brides and grooms often love something personalized with a comically drawn version of themselves.

Recipients of these invitations will instantly know that the couple went out all on custom design rather than simply buying a cheap template.

The Whole Package

Italian Garden Wedding Collection

Don’t stop at mere invitations, wedding clients require lots of printed materials and getting them all in one place with one coherent theme is an enticing deal.

In addition to invitations you can throw in “Save the Date” cards, RSVP cards, custom envelopes, maps to the church and reception locations, wedding day programs and “Thank You” cards.

Unique Packaging

If your clients have a decent budget to play with, try putting some creative thought into how you present the invitations. The awesome example above uses a pop-open can containing the invitation. Guests are encouraged to then bring the can to the wedding and tie it to the back of the bride and groom’s car for that classic “just married” look.
