10 On-trend Wedding Invitation Ideas
When it comes to wedding invitation ideas, we also know that there are a lot of designs out there and choosing can feel overwhelming sometimes. Here are 10 of the best on-trend wedding invitation ideas for 2022 for an invite your guests won’t forget in a hurry.
Something Blue Wedding Invitation Ideas
Pantone has created a brand new shade of blue for its 2022 Colour of the Year. The colour is described as a “dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet red undertone” by the institute and it’s set to be a popular choice for wedding stationery. Tree of Hearts say it’s the perfect colour to bring the ‘something blue’ tradition into the 21st century. Wedding stationery is a perfect way to introduce your theme early on. “With Save the Dates and wedding invitations you can start seeding your colour scheme subtly from the very moment your guests first hear from you,” says Lisa from Tree of Hearts.
Florals and Foliage Wedding Invitation Ideas
Rustic and elegant foliage are here to stay in 2022 – we love this design for a spring wedding. These invitations are a great way to incorporate your wedding florals and give guests a sneak peek at what they’ll see on the big day.
Delicate Pastels Wedding Invitation Ideas
Traditional pastels mixed with marble, watercolour and metallics give your invitation a modern twist. Reflecting a playful, modern and elegant theme, these invitations can be matched to florals and bridesmaid dresses on the day.
Dramatic & Elegant Wedding Invitation Ideas
Moody textures in dark shades set the tone for your elegant wedding day. Perfect for a black-tie affair like a New Year’s Eve wedding or sophisticated gathering, you can even add gold foil to amp up the glamour.
Monogram on Wedding Invitation Ideas
Monograms take personalisation one step further. Once you’ve designed your monogram, you can add it to other elements of your big day like wedding ceremony programs, menu cards and thank you cards to complete the look.
Rustic Wedding Invitation Ideas
Nature-inspired textiles and neutral colours create a warm, welcoming invitation that would be perfect for a rustic barn wedding. Burlap, wood textures and simple florals tie the theme together and give guests an idea of what’s to come.
Photo Wedding Invitation Ideas
A great photo from your engagement gives your wedding invitations a personal touch that stands out from the crowd. This non-traditional move will appeal to the modern couple who can’t wait to celebrate their love story.
Destination Wedding Invitation Ideas
Ramp up the excitement amongst your destination wedding guests with an invite that reflects the feel of your chosen faraway spot. Watercolour texture mimics the ocean waves of a coastal wedding, while palm leaves set the tone for an elegant tropical celebration.
Personalised Drawing Wedding Invitation Ideas
These personalised line drawing invitations are perfect for a laid-back, smaller celebration or a boho, rustic wedding in a barn, where it’s all about celebrating your love.
Typographical Wedding Invitation Ideas
Modern typography adds a hint of sophistication to any invitation. Keep the rest of the design simple and let the lettering stand out or pair the font with a trendy texture to create a moodier, contemporary feel. Choose a font that stands out against the rest of your wedding invitation wording for an elegant look.
