Just like other invitation design elements, color is a great way to express your personal style. Color trends tend to change quickly due to current events and celebrity trends. It is safe to say invitation design color trends are evolving daily! This year pastels rule wedding color palettes. Bright neon colors and grays with a splash of black are popular for events such as bar and bat mitzvahs and sweet sixteen birthday parties. Shades of gray are a popular choice for women turning 50.
Color schemes can convey the mood of your event. Light pastels are soft and friendly on the eye. Brights signify energy and youth.
In the wedding industry rustic weddings are still very popular. Dark wood, light wood, browns, burlap tan, and creams are trending. A splash of moss green and a woodland theme for an outdoor event is born. The chalkboard vintage theme is still going strong. Dark messy chalkboards appearing more dark gray with overlays of soft hues soften the vintage look. Creating a chick modern twist. Vintage weddings with blush pinks, gray, and creams are very, very popular and will continue its popularity next year.
Soft watercolor hues are still popular this year. Perfect for a destination wedding invitation with a beach chic theme or floral garden themed event invite. Soft ocean blue hues in gradient brush strokes make for the perfect sea-worthy background. Keeping the invitation elegant with modern typography and calligraphy style fonts. Large bright floral hues in hot pink and purples grab your guests attention and communicate a fresh summer venue.
Neon colors are very popular for our younger clients of 13-16. Neon is not new, however it is certainly here to stay in 2014. Paired with gray or black creates the perfect modern invitation design.
Pastels. Soft hues in blush pink, lightest blue, soft coral peach, and gray are perfect for elegant wedding invitation design with almost any theme. Splashes of gold are mostly seen with the pastel invitation designs. Although I predict silver will take over very soon!
Metallics. Gold metallic is seen on all over Pinterest at this time. Many many many clients are using gold in their weddings and events. Rose gold and silver are gaining popularity. When choosing gold foil printing for your invitation design remember the cost is extremely high and adjust your budget as needed. Or opt to use a gold metallic and white twine hand-tied into a bow, add a gold metallic card backing, and / or glitter your invite to add the sparkle you love.
Roaring twenties. A gatsby-worthy celebration will entail black and white with a splash of art deco glamour in the richest red. In 1920, golds and pastels were also very popular.
When choosing colors for your invitation design keep in mind the linens color options and venue detailing. Go with a color scheme that matches your theme.
