Here's the truth about wedding invitations: You can get literally anything you can ever think of printed on your bridal stationery suite. But all of those options (flowers! graphic designs! metallic details!) can be more than a little overwhelming for some couples, which is why those distressed engaged pairs should get familiar with typography invitations.
Obviously, we're fans of embellished invitations, but there's something so refined about a piece of stationery showcasing nothing but gorgeous lettering. From romantic, swirling calligraphy and perfectly aligned letterpress type to whimsical handwriting-inspired fonts and classic script, there is no end to what type of typography invitation you can create. These less-is-more pieces of paper are ideal for any type of couple, season, and wedding style, too. Plus, their clean and simple designs mean they're something you'll treasure forever, so you'll never have to worry about regretting a trendy style.
We found 25 gorgeous pieces of stationery fit for any type of celebration. For your rustic wedding, consider a laid-back lettered style from Swiss Cottage Design, complete with a poppy-hued envelope. For the modern couple, a black-and-white ombré design from Olive Juice Stationery is perfectly cool, while traditional couples will swoon for Bella Figura's elegant white-on-white design seen here. Prefer something more whimsical? Confetti Grey's teal-lined invite with a sprawling, playful font will be your favorite.
You can't go wrong with any of these understated styles, so look through and find the perfect typography invitation for your wedding!
