Just like in fashion and home decor, wedding invitation trends come and go and old becomes new again. Last year at the Wedding MBA one of the trends the pros said was going to be huge this year in invitations was floral. I kind of questioned this prediction because flowers have been around forever but as we get farther into 2018 floral is taking on a fresh new look in wedding invitations so today I thought it would be fun to share that with you.
A couple years ago, watercolor floral designs were all the rage in invitations. While they are still popular with many couples, the flower images stealing the show today are more realistic with an almost vintage or elegant vibe. These new floral designs are used more as accents to a more classic invitation design which is great because couples can infuse as much or as little of this bold design feature as they want. Where watercolor floral is colorful, it also tends to me softer but the latest trend is bold and rich in color!
From envelope liners to belly bands, these bold florals can dress up even the most simple invitations. Our customers like it too because these designs have become our most popular.
If you love the flowers, you can carry this design from the liner to the backs of the cards like above to really make a statement. (this invitation features a real wood grain paper on the front too!)
Below is one of our newest designs featuring another popular trend in wedding invitations this year…vellum.
