You just got engaged. Your mind is racing with all of the beautiful, romantic things you will do to make your wedding day the most amazing day of your life. And whether you’re planning a gorgeous ballroom soirée complete with a Cinderella gown or a bohemian backyard ceremony you will want to convey the desired atmosphere of your wedding to your guests before they arrive so they know what to expect.
With this in mind, the invitation you choose for your wedding is paramount.

But with so many choices, you might not know where to start. That’s where we come in! In this article, we’ll outline 5 of the hottest wedding invitation trends to get you on the right track.

Having a spring wedding on the beach? Watercolor invitations exude the airiness you might desire for your day. Subtle and delicate, watercolors add pigment to your invites without being overwhelming. Watercolor can be employed in a variety of ways, from a painting of a specific scene or design to a seemingly random splash of color behind your text.
2. Dark / Vivid Colors
Soft, subtle colors aren’t your thing? Don’t be afraid to go bold! It’s your day, after all. If you dream of forest green invitations, do it! Dark and vivid colors are in fashion, and perfect for fall or winter weddings. When choosing a palette, just be sure to make your text pop against the colorful background by keeping it white or using another light color so your guests don’t have to strain to read the information.
3. Seals & Stamps
A great way to add a touch of pizzazz to your invitations is with a custom seal or stamp. If you don’t have a specific image that encapsulates the vibe of your wedding, the first letter of the last name you will soon share and the date of the event can be just as effective.
4. Envelope Liners
If you’re hosting your wedding in your favorite park, how cute would it be to line the inside of your envelopes with a nature-themed print? Whether you’re looking for a dash of glamor or whimsy, a beautifully lined envelope can provide that impression.
5. Start Your Own Wedding Invitation Trends
If you’ve searched and searched and nothing quite fits what you have in mind, design your own wedding invitations! With programs like Adobe Spark, you can bring your dream invitations to life in minutes. Simply select a size, theme, and font, and you’re ready to print or share your invites. You can even upload an image, such as a tender picture from your engagement shoot, or choose one from the provided media library.
