Reflect the trends of the 2014 wedding season to make your invitations both modern and memorable. They’ll serve as a lasting reminder of the style of the times, a tangible piece of the your wedding’s overall design. So which trends will you use in your invitations this year?
Texture is a big trend in the 2014 spring wedding season. Beaded and lacy gowns are popular for this reason, but the trend doesn’t stop at fashion. Wedding invitations have more texture this season as well.
Play with the texture of your wedding invitations. Use thick paper to contrast against smooth, silky ribbon. Add lace to get even more texture. Layers are being used more and more to create texture in wedding invitations. Embossed and raised designs are being replaced with layered, highly textured invitations.
Stay in Style
Like fashion, wedding invitations are subject to different trends as certain styles become more or less popular. Which style trends are the hottest in weddings this spring?
Vintage-style invitations are one of the biggest trends in invitations. Look for designs that look dated to capture that vintage style. Pair vintage-style invitations with an ornate, scrolling font to complete the theme.
If you’re more free-spirited than elegant, the boho trend is perfect for you. It’s very hot in weddings this spring. Boho style is characterized by free-flowing lines and seemingly erratic patterns. Boho is loose and feminine and a little wild, not structured and well-ordered.
Choose Your Colors
When it comes to wedding invitations, color is everything. The 2014 color trends are bolder, brighter and more fun than spring styles of the past.
Natural color tones are very popular in spring weddings this year. Neutral color shades are perfect for brides who are getting married with a boho trend, and it’s perfect for spring either way. A natural color scheme looks lovely with outdoor wedding venues.
Bold gem tones are popular this spring, so it’s the perfect time to get colorful. Deep oranges, eye-catching yellow and vivid blues and greens are all being featured in wedding invitations. What’s the hottest of these hot spring colors? Coral. This bright pink-orange shade is appearing in wedding trends everywhere, from invitations to flowers to clothing.
But the trendiest color of the season is a little more traditional, and perfect for spring: mint green. Use it in your invitations to create that perfect spring look, and stay on trend.
Look for the spring trends this wedding season, and look for ways to make your wedding invitations stand out. If you watch the trends, you’ll perfectly capture the spirit of the current time and the style of the day.
