A darker invitation already makes a statement, so it doesn't have to be overly elaborate. This creation boasts black card stock accompanied by simple white text and gold-scripted accents.
If you’re having a destination wedding, your invitation suite should reflect its location. That being said, you shouldn’t let that theme completely overshadow the reason guests will be traveling there—you two are the stars of the show, after all. The example above does a great job of acknowledging the destination (in this case, Costa Rica) with a colorful map and floral details while also keeping the majority of the suite modest and neutral.
If you’re feeling a whimsical wedding theme filled with cheerful colors, pretty florals, and a general air of playfulness, then you’ll love this modern invitation. The flowers add a pop of color to the white cardstock, acting as a frame for the text.
This design is clean and simple, but its small and intentional details make it unique. The materials are hand-dyed, laser-cut, and have deckled edges, and the soft pink shade serves as a warm and welcoming color choice.
We’re loving the warm, bohemian vibes of this invitation suite from our collaboration with Minted. If this wedding stationery doesn’t get guests excited to travel for your big day, then we don’t know what will.
This couple went bold with their invitations, but all within a simple black, white, and grey color palette. The motif is a great representation of a modern industrial wedding—combining clean, minimalist lines with touches of eye-catching art that serve as a nod to their Japanese theme.
Fun and Friendly
If you’re looking for an invitation that’s upbeat and indicative of an incredibly fun wedding to come, then look no further than the suite here. With its modern-meets-boho look, we’re big fans of the use of a gold script to glam up light blue watercolor designs. The script is also quirky rather than formal. Plus, we love a well-illustrated map.
How cool are these? This couple personalized their invitations, with the groom drawing all of the illustrations. They also made confetti from his artwork and included it in the save the dates.
These invitations give off romantic, garden vibes reminiscent of a Shakespeare play, but in a manner that’s clean and modern. It’s amazing how such a simple design can accomplish so much.
Daring Desert Blooms
With invitations this pretty, you know the wedding is going to be absolutely gorgeous. Between the edgy black envelope, the colorful desert flowers, and the neat block lettering, it truly captured the desert vibe of the event.
Glammed Up Greenery
There’s something about a tropical, palm-tree theme that always works for a wedding. This invite is glammed up with greenery accompanied by gold accents that give the stationery a bit of a vintage, art deco feel.
Simple and Symbolic
These invitations are to the point (which is something we can always appreciate), yet they are still unique to the couple due to the small illustrative details. Look closely and you'll see drinks, a barn, flags, and a dog emblem, all making this suite anything but plain.
Stamps that match the invitation? We’re impressed. The neutral design has pops of muted, dreamy colors for a beachy boho vibe.
If you’re having a coastal wedding, a blue color palette is always a solid choice. These invites featured a palette of white, gold, grey, and varying shades of blue. Not only do we love the contrast of the different hues, but we’re also pretty obsessed with the custom rose-branch illustration.
Mix and Match
This invitation suite captures a few different wedding styles, but it’s done in such a seamless way. The geometric shapes are modern, the florals are boho, and the black and gold add a bit of glam. It's a great example of how there is no one box you need to stay in when designing your invitations.
We’ve really been loving it when couples choose to use envelope liners—it’s a small thing that can completely transform an invitation suite, especially if the majority of the materials are minimalist. Here you see an all-white invitation suite with the addition of a romantic, pink floral envelope liner.
Maps are a fun way for your guests to interact with your invitation, especially when they’re hand-drawn and as cute as the one shown here. It’s a wonderful addition to this suite, along with the deep burgundy envelope.
From the designs to the cut of the paper, one couple went full-on geometric for their invitations. That being said, they balanced the sharp, straight lines with a scripted font that adds just the right amount of curvature and flow.
Keep It Conversational
This invitation is laid-back and conversational—no stuffy, old-school wedding jargon in sight. Most wouldn’t think of using exclamation points on their invites, but here it works and doesn’t come across as over the top.
An acrylic invitation stands out—and, quite frankly, is incredibly cool. Though it is undoubtedly modern, it still allows for the creative freedom to tie in whatever other wedding styles you’re into. This suite is adorned with vibrant watercolor florals and gold lettering on the card stock.
