Your wedding invitation will be the first glimpse of your wedding your guests will see. It’s important to choose an invite that complements your wedding’s theme, and most importantly the formality of the celebration. Looking to the new wedding invitation trends can help you find a style that’s right for you.
WeddingWire walked the National Stationery Show to discover what the new wedding invitation trends are for 2018 weddings. Here are some of our favorites!
The popularity of handwritten fonts has soared in the last few years, and now they’re getting bold with larger lettering that is less tailored than classic calligraphy. Funky Names, by Phrosne Ras and available on Minted, is an example of how designers mix fonts: a large handwritten typeface for the couple’s names paired with a clean, sans serif font.
Dark & Metallic
Metallic shades are very popular in wedding details, with muted shades of copper and rose gold popping up on tablescapes, bridesmaid dresses and even wedding cakes—and it’s one of the hottest wedding invitation trends as well. For your wedding invitation, you can include a metallic color and ensure that it pops off the page by setting it on a dark paper, such as black or navy. Bella Figura’s Eve wedding invitation suite (below) features hand calligraphy in copper foil by Virginia Lucas Hart on black paper. The reverse side of the invite has a black and copper hexagon pattern.
