If you are looking for inspiration for your invitations, take a look at the following popular invitation trends that we believe will make your big day stand out in 2018!


This technique has a softness that can only be achieved with watercolour paints.  It automatically feels more romantic by the soften lines and colours.  And it doesn’t have to be a pastel palette to make this trend work…here are some pics that prove our point.


This technique can be done to create either very modern or traditionally styled stationery and the options are endless.

Moody Romantic:

Bold is the key to making Moody Romantic stationery work!  Think dark backgrounds and bold patterns to really set the tone!  It’s a bold move to choose this style and one that will certainly make a lasting impression.

Blind Letterpress:

Blind printing is when there is no ink used for that portion of the printing process.  The pattern (or sometimes wording) is pressed into the paper to create an impression or a “dent”, this impression is legible even in the absence of ink. You can’t achieve this effect with any other common printing methods and it makes this oh so special!

Laser Cut:

You couldn’t cut out a design with a scissors and get the detail that a laser can, so don’t even bother.  Laser Cut is so cool because the cutting is done with an actual laser beam and can make the tiniest of cuts that make for some amazing patterns!  This technique has wow factor written all over it.

Caligraphy or Hand written:

It doesn’t necessarily have to be done by hand anymore to create this look…and that’s the beauty of it!  It all looks hand done, but it’s absolutely flawless every time it is a lot faster!  It’s an art form that has been replicated by computer fonts and it saves a lot of time and money.

Minimalist Designs:

A clean little pattern or design that is replicated in a different way throughout the stationery   is the key to a minimalist design.  This is such a sophisticated, trendy, and fun design, depending upon your artwork and how you use it. Just a little touch is all it takes to make a big impact. Whether it’s a swirl, a vine, a line, or a wreath…this little touch goes a long way in the overall aesthetic.

Metallic or gold foiling:

Shimmer and shine is all the rage and metallic of all shades and foils (even more than just gold) is very popular right now.  It is an elegant way to dress up the invitations and make a statement that you better dress to the nines when attending this wedding!

Geometric floral and greenery:

Geometric touches paired with greenery/floral is so 2018!  It’s a hot look for a boho chic, modern, or minimalistic wedding.  The graphic and bold aspect of the geometric print is offset by the softness of the botanical touches and it just “works”.

Added Embellishments:

Adding a ribbon, a wax seal, a belly band, a jewel…the list can go on and on, but adding a little something extra is all the rage for 2018.  It adds personality, textural interest, and a layer, which is always a win!
