30 Lovely Floral Wedding Invitations

Floral Wedding Invitations

PHOTO BY ERICH MCVEY 

Floral wedding invitations don't have to mean congesting your stationery with enormous painted bouquets and loud prints. As couples are turning to a more minimalist and typography-centric approach to their invitations, requests for floral elements are geared more around silhouettes, dainty line art, and blind- or letterpress accents. Timeless and ultra-romantic, bridal stationery with flower detailing is back in a big way.

We spoke with stationery designer Kelly Patrice to learn all about modern floral stationery. Her clients have been requesting invitations with a focus on the typography with simple floral detailing to adorn calligraphy or modern fonts. "My clients have been wanting floral accents," she says, "to just show that it's there very lightly and have the emphasis on the text." Larger flower prints are often painted in modern, earthy, and muted tones, or kept within the lining of the envelopes, instead of on the invitations.

Meet the Expert

Kelly Patrice is a California-based custom wedding designer and calligrapher. She has crafted hundreds of bespoke invitation suites in the four years since opening her business.

Unlike floral stationery of the past, these invitations all feature something modern and fresh. Whether you add a groom-approved gold foil detail or play with letter-pressed petals, there's an unexpected way to design the wedding invitation that speaks to the moment and to you as a pair.

Many of these blossoming suites are totally customizable—you can choose the flowers and the colors to complement your wedding's overall style.

Read on for 30 of our favorite floral wedding invitations that we just can't get enough of.

Kelly Patrice used the blind press method to create an understated floral silhouette on the cards. "Basically what that means is there's no ink. It's just blindly pressed into your paper and that's how a lot of my clients have been wanting floral accents."

Gold Foil Calligraphy

The Pristine collection by Little Carabao Studio features a mix of modern calligraphy and classic typography, an organic botanical crest, organic-styled paper, and gold foil. Patrice suggests going for textured paper types like something handmade or textured cotton when pairing with minimalistic designs. "It gives more of a wow-factor than say something like a colored piece of paper or like a smooth cardstock," she says.
