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 15 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.
As of today, at Mospens Studio you will find mint green, coral orange, light peach, all shades of blue, and gold are top trends. With the color of the year being announced, bright and vibrant red-violet orchid will soon rise to a top choice. I predict silver will take place of gold. Metallic splashes of color are also HOT. On the rise of popularity is rose gold. 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 pocket folder invitations. Organizing the invitation, reply card, and information card neatly in one folder is perfect for destination wedding guests. If your guests are traveling from afar be sure to included accommodations, and event times. Square pocket folder designs are popular even though the postage is more to mail them. Traditional size flat cards with no folds are perfect for the more formal event and/or bridal showers. 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.
