They have a seemingly endless array of color options, super simple online ordering, new patterns and foils being released frequently, and best of all, everything is made exactly for you.
1. Sleek and Chic
One of the hottest trends we have seen take off in the last couple of years, especially in San Diego weddings, is an emphasis on minimalism. We are loving the elegant, geometric design of this modern wedding invitation pattern. Also, the subtle color allows plenty of wiggle room to work in virtually any design palette. Let’s give it up for those gorgeous fall hues!
2. Bold Color Highlight
Speaking of color, if subtle metallics aren’t quite hip enough for you the minimalist look is still achievable with a clean white layout and a bold statement color. We personally are loving the mustard/gold tones that have been surfacing in the past year, but really anything will do! A little extra shout-out to the gorgeous contrast between color vs. black & white photographs, like in the Save the Date card below.
3. Floral Focus
The number one thing that comes to my mind in the Fall is the amazing foliage. Cool rustic herbs pair beautifully with soft florals and bits of falling leaves during this season, so why not bring that inspiration into your stationery? The Save the Date card below from Basic Invite is a great option for incorporating floral while still being offset by a strong graphic block and font. A little feminine, a little masculine…the perfect mix!
4. Photo Focus
And for those of you who have had just about enough of flower picking, between the bouquets and table arrangements, we love love love wedding stationery that truly puts the focus on the couple! The wedding invitations below really bring in a great mix of highlighting the photography that you invested in, while combining it with a minimalist, casual font. We also love the idea of pairing photos with a strong, modern typeface; especially with a dramatic black & white photo!
5. Eye-Catching Calligraphy
With the intricacy of calligraphy it’s completely possible to skip all of the frills, get right to the nuts & bolts, and still have stunning wedding stationery. This more modern calligraphy style is a casual take on the traditional cursive handwriting, offering a more “cutesy” laidback vibe. The key to this style is incredible presentation, varied font colors, and a strong surrounding decor scheme (like the bright purple and zig-zag displayed below.)
6. Sophisticated Simplicity
Take your wedding stationery and decor on a time warp to sophisticated mid-century vibes. Standout features of this style are a monochromatic palette (throw in some metallic for extra flair), strong typefaces and linear design. Notice how all of the information is featured in blocks that draw the eye, and those are broken up with little touches of romantic cursive.
