Hottest Wedding Invitation Trends of 2016

Hello 2016! A new year means a new start and fresh ideas, so today I would like to share with you the hottest wedding invite trends for the new year. Weddings this year are all about you and showcasing your unique personality means that your wedding will never go out of style!

Drum roll please… The 3 hottest trends for wedding invitations in 2016 are:

Rise of Highly Personalized

Think monograms, custom illustrations, unique fonts or anything that showcases YOU! Your love story is totally unique and long gone are the days of picking a boring, overused invitation from a book. Have fun with your wedding invitation and let your personalities shine! As we work closely together to create your custom wedding invitations we will build a super personal wedding brand with design elements that you will be able to use throughout your entire reception.

The end result of the custom design process will be an invitation that sets the stage for your wedding and will make your guests feel like they have just stepped into your reception. Using the elements from your invitation design at your reception, like your wedding logo, will tie the entire experience together for you and your guests. It will be an event to remember!

Metallics Still Shine

Silver may be on the decline, but Rose Gold and Copper, those are here to stay! (Personally I can’t get enough of the glitter!) Metallics can be used for more than just glitz and are more versatile than you may think. They can add an elegant, romantic, or even natural touch depending on how they are used. So feel free to experiment!

Incorporating metallics into your wedding invitations can elevate them to another level! Whether you decide to go big with your metallics or just an accent, luxe finishes like foil stamping, edge painting, or shimmering cardstocks will make your invitation shine (literally)! If you can’t wait to see your shimmering dreams become a reality let’s get this started! Click here to get in touch.

Pantone’s colors of the year, Serenity and Rose Quartz, may have been a shock to some, but they perfectly capture the feeling of 2016 weddings. They exude romance and have the ability to add a softness that will make your wedding even more intimate. For proof, look at this beautiful image from a style shoot designed by Michelle Leo Events featuring a hand painted dress with gorgeous waves of blue tulle.
