My favourite wedding invitations (of the moment)

I’ve spied a lot of gorgeous wedding suites on Pinterest lately. I’ve been really drawn to invitations that feature handwritten or scripty fonts in gold and rose gold foil. When they are set against darker backgrounds the words pop off the page.

Floral flat lays also seem to be popular at the moment too. I’ve seen a lot of designers are using big, full blooms and deconstructed botanicals. The result is a design that is both striking and distinctive.

Have you seen any wedding invitations that have caught your eye lately? Leave the details in the comments below.

Beautiful black wedding stationery

I really like the look of predominantly black wedding stationery (wedding invites, save the date cards etc). Black conjures up feelings of elegance and refinement. Black also lends itself really well to some Gatsy-esque art deco accents in gold (like the invitations by Rachael Ree and Slade Studios below).

What do you think about black invites? Are you a fan too?

Wedding invitations featuring standout typography

If you’ve had your fill of floral/watercolour/chalkboard elements, here are some simple wedding invitations that feature typography as the hero. By the way, never underestimate the power of a perfectly chosen font. Fonts can convey a lot about the aesthetics of a wedding so it’s important to choose one that works for you.

Santiago Sunbird

If you caught My Three Favourite Things newsletter a couple of weeks ago you would have seen a beautiful watercolour wedding invitation designed by Santiago Sunbird. I’m in awe of Bree and Sarah Hankinson’s work. It’s beautifully designed and while it is watercolour (and watercolour is so ‘in’ at the moment) it’s also understated and unique, which is everything you want from your wedding stationery, right?

8 of the sweetest wedding cake toppers

If you’re looking for that final piece of wedding flair to round-out your wedding celebrations a paper wedding topper is the ticket. Not only do they look super cute, they’ll also last for ages so you’ll have another reminder from your big day. Of course they don’t have to be used for weddings – the artists below have other, general options you can choose instead.

Wedding Wednesday – Ian Collins

Absolutely gorgeous wedding suite made by very clever (and hands-on) bride (Christine) and groom (Ian). It was designed and made using a home printer and a rented laser cutter/engraver. Very crafty and fun.

I love the idea of giving guests a field guide showing flora and fauna in the area where the wedding took place. Very cool idea. I also love the interactivity of the invitation where guests could pop up the trees to get into the spirit of a wedding in the woods.

Say it with seeds

I really like the idea of giving a packet of seeds as a guest gift. I’ve seen them given away as a wedding or baby shower favour but I think they are the perfect thank you for any occasion.
