For those of you tying the knot this summer and beyond, SheKnows wanted to look ahead at what’s coming down for wedding invitation trends. We turned to Amy Zaroff of Amy Zaroff Events + Design for her take on the top ten upcoming wedding invitation trends.
Top 10 wedding
Move over black and white – fresher, more unique color combos are taking over from the more staid beiges or traditional black and white.
We’ve seen this color theme a lot over the past two years – in everything from clothing to accessories, and for invites, marine-inspired hues are here to stay. The soothing appeal and gentle shades seem to resonate with brides, and from pale aquamarine to deep ocean blue, oceanic tones are multipurpose and can be used for both casual gatherings and more elegant I do’s.
Make it mineral
Often used in decorating, these understated and natural colors will carry forward into next year.
Watch for raw material tones such as jade, copper, slate and gravel to dominate invitation color palettes, both in printed pieces and in paper stock.
Lemon and lime
Fresh, bold and fruity, an invitation color palette that incorporates bright yellow and lime-green is great for brides who want an element of fun in their nuptials. Ideal for an outdoor summer wedding, yellows and greens are also easily carried over into place settings, décor and floral arrangements.
Lavender and rose
A lavender and rose color palette is both elegant and eye-catching.
The pale, pretty tones are soft and easy on the eyes and create a more feminine look. Watch for this palette to be popular in early spring.
Purple is one color that rarely goes out of style and we see it year after year – with good reason. Deep shades will become more prominent, taking over from some of the lighter shades.
