If you are in need of invitations for your wedding or event, knowing the latest trends in invitation design is essential to getting a great response. In this article, I have decided to share the most important and top design trends that every designer and event planner should be aware of.
It is very interesting, large fancy fonts and hand-lettered calligraphy are popular all over the world at this time. Large typography blended with traditional block styles complete this typography trend. Hand-lettered lettering in calligraphy ink or hand-painted in watercolor or acrylic paints are also trending. Large wedding couples names in cursive or block styles express excitement and personal style in a chic way. Perfectly spaced kerning and leading give the typography design style a polished professional design look and feel.
A lot of invitation designers now use watercolor art to give invitations a fresh modern look. For over 24 years, I have enjoyed designing custom invitations with unique artworks to match our clients theme. It is a perfect look for a beach chic, garden wedding, museum venue event, and tropical destination wedding design for example. Using hand-painted watercolor artwork will help you customize your invitations to convey your theme, color scheme, and even casual or formal attire to your guests. Think venue watercolor art, hand-painted custom wedding crests, beautiful landscape scene in watercolor, custom painted wedding city map, watercolor wash of color for your inner envelope liners and more! Handcrafted watercolor artwork sets your wedding invitation suite apart from ho-hum snail mail. Set the scene! You want your guests to be just excited as you are about your BIG day.

Monograms that incorporate the wedding couples first initials are super popular this year. Adding their personal style in custom watercolor crest monograms and super traditional monograms are top choices of our creative clients. With a nod to elegance and past times, vintage style hand-drawn monograms look amazing in any color giving your wedding invitation suite a stylish design.
As of today, at Mospens Studio you will find bright orange, dark and soft green hues, coral orange, soft peach, all shades of blue, traditional black and white are top trends. Adding a hand-tied ribbon, colorful card backing, and watercolor art are great ways to infuse your color scheme into your invitations. Keeping lettering in darker hues help your guests read your event details easily and gives your invites an elegant look.
Destination wedding invitations have greatly influenced the use of stacked invitations wrapped with a belly band. Organizing the invitation, response card, and information card neatly is perfect for destination wedding and all guests. If your guests are traveling from afar be sure to included accommodations, and event days and corresponding times. Layered invitation cards are the perfect way to add the splash of color and texture. Our card thickness is a heavier stock however adding another layer gives the invitation dimension. Layering is also very popular. For a really unique invitation look, skip the card and send a glass bottle invitation or our popular invitation in a box. So luxe and inviting!
