I consider staying on top of celebrity nuptials as part of my job (wedding company perks!), but also as a personal passion. There’s NO shame in loving a good tabloid! And as soon as Zola launched save the dates and invitations, I immediately started connecting all of our different card designs to recent celeb weddings. And now, when someone’s shopping around for cards, I’ll think: are they more of a Solange, or more of a Chrissy? Pro Tip: Knowing your favorite celeb style icons adds a whole other dimension to gathering style inspo for your own big day. Check out some of my favorite star-inspired invites below:
Celeb Couple: Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli
The couple met on the set of Orange is the New Black, and their Palm Springs wedding featured every other color in the crayon box. This graphic, playful design fits in perfectly with their entire bridal vibe.
Celeb Couple: Solange Knowles and Alan Ferguson
Singer-songwriter Solange wed her husband in an industrial-chic warehouse, and instilled a mandatory dress code of all-white everything. A minimalist’s dream, just like this unique invite design.
Design: Tillage Corner
Celeb Couple: Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
This unstoppable power couple threw a lavish destination wedding in Italy, complete with tons of blush and peach as sumptuous as... John Legend’s singing voice? These soft, watercolor florals echo the same rich (but delicate!) European glamour.
Design: Woads Wreath
Celeb Couple: Pippa Middleton and James Matthews
Middleton and her now-husband tied the knot at the historic St. Marks church, which was covered in tons of white blooms accented with lush greenery. Quite like this invite design: the perfect marriage of floral and formal.
Design: Eastwick Frame
Celeb Couple: Lauren Conrad and William Tell
LC pioneered the boho-lite wedding—as in, she used elements of casual bohemian flair while still staying within a classic, neutral color palette. Her wedding (and this invite) both let sprawling botanicals take over in a very impactful way.
Celeb Couple: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
And finally, the recent royal nuptials watched round the world. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry kept their whole day super neutral and clean, with sprays of white florals and (of course) those two sleek, game changing column gowns. This invite suite is a nod to that sleekness, but also, to Meghan’s penchant for calligraphy. The woman’s a Duchess of many talents, after all.
Design: Blake Frame
Celeb Couple: Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie
Held in a Scottish castle, the wedding of the two Game of Thrones stars was a total dream. This invite reflects everything beautiful about their union, from the gorgeous green countryside surroundings, to the classic and clean lines of the kilts donned by Harrington and his crew.
