While it’s important to make sure you’ve said yes to the right dress, it’s just as important to have stationery that reflects your wedding aesthetic. After all, your invitation is the first glimpse your guests get into your wedding style.
So, if you’re going for a clean, minimal look for your nuptials, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite elegant yet pared-down invitations. These designs emphasize simple text and language, modern typography, and the use of negative space and really prove that, sometimes, less is more.
All Spelled Out
This simple invitation suite features clean lines and typography paired with sparse blocks of text; spelling out the wedding date instead of using numerals adds emphasis and makes the celebration date stand out.
The deliberate use of blank space on this design by Refine Studio feels like a welcome breath of fresh air. We also love that the text is simple and straight-forward, only including the essentials.
The hand-torn edges and tea-stained patina of this invitation suite give the stationery elements an elegant, antiqued look that will look classic for years to come and is perfect for a wedding with a vintage aesthetic.
The combination of Roman and italicized type helps put emphasis on the most pertinent invitation details, while the staggered blocks of text keep the overall design balanced and on point. This design comes courtesy of Brylo Wed.
This stationery suite by Goods Gang features a vellum wedding invitation—a translucent sheet that has a dreamy, ethereal quality and stands out from the stack. The full suite uses typography that's heavy but pleasingly minimal, and the neutral, earthy color palette was chosen to match the colors of the wedding flowers.
This pared-down wedding invitation by Artifact Uprising proves that breaking the rules of hyphenation can be totally chic.
