6 Gorgeous Wedding Invitation Trends For 2018

6 Gorgeous Wedding Invation Trends For 2018 | Shutterfly | Claire Eliza 9

Alright, we’re guilty – we’re totally addicted to pinning those super chic, flat-lay wedding stationery photos. All the different papers, textures, colors, fonts, all mixed and matched, but paired so cohesively – we can’t get enough! And with wedding trends evolving, and designers creating even more gorgeous work, you better bet 2018 is going to bring some pretty gorgeous wedding invitation trends.

Lucky us, The Wedding Shop by Shutterfly is absolutely on top of our six stunning stationery trends. What does that mean? You don’t have to break the bank if you want the latest, greatest wedding invite designs. The whole process is so simple. You choose your favorite design, customize as you wish, and you’ll be squealing with delight at your mailbox before you know it!

And it’s not just invitations – when you choose an invitation design from The Wedding Shop by Shutterfly you have varying choices of RSVP cards, detail inserts (for things like accommodation, directions, rehearsal dinners, etc), matching thank you cards, custom stamps and envelopes for each. And all of these items are customizable; not only can you change the text, fonts and amount of information you include, but you can change the color scheme, certain design elements, add return and recipient labeling and even choose matching envelope liners!

We went ahead and created six gorgeous wedding stationery suites ourselves, making loads of custom choices and relishing in the design process. Let’s take a look and get to designing your suite, shall we?

Marble Wedding Stationery

Are you as marble obsessed as we are? At home, I’ve got a roll of marble contact paper so I can marble all my furniture that…isn’t already marble. So silly, but man, it’s such an easy way to make a piece look clean and luxurious.

The Opulent Lines stationery suite is exactly that, polished and rich. Not only do the wedding invites feature that trendy marble look, but the suite is made even fancier with the addition of gold foil (which you can customize to be silver or rose gold as well!) and endless color scheme options. Choose from one of their color choices or go straight to the color wheel for your own custom hue.

Geometric Wedding Stationery

Geometric lines are appearing in major ways in the wedding world from cool modern sculptures to chic paper goods.

We imagine this Chic Hexagon stationery suite could be perfect for a modern, city couple who appreciate architectural beauty and minimalistic design. The back of each card features a different geometric design, making this minimalistic suite surprisingly dynamic. And yes, those are gold foil lines (eep!)

Choose from a variety of different envelopes and mixing and matching like we did here, or even add a patterned liner.

Bold Floral Wedding Stationery

We all know florals have always been incredibly relevant in every aspect of wedding design, but it’s bold florals that are popping in the stationery world in 2018.

Much like your grandma’s back-in-fashion living room wallpaper (and matching couch) Brushed Petals is loud and proud: the print is totally vintage-inspired, but organized in a modern, sophisticated way. And the suite is slightly bigger at the 5×7 size.

We figured this statement stationery suite needed to get a bit louder with gold envelopes and gold glitter envelope liners – you know, because who doesn’t love sparkle?

(Don’t worry, it’s not real glitter, your friends and family won’t be cursing you while vacuuming sparkles from every far reach of their homes.)

Tropical Wedding Stationery

Palm Springs or Tulum? Bali or Cabo? Brides planning a hot and steamy destination wedding will likely be pinning plenty of tropical stationery suites this wedding planning season.

Lush as any tropical garden, these palm-tastic Tropical Herald invites are modern, trendy, gorgeous and luxe.

The tropical suite allowed me to choose an accent color that gets lightly splashed into the small florals within the tropical leaf designs. We decided to keep it neutral to keep the focus on the greenery, but the option of pops of bright fuchsia was quite tempting.

Watercolor Wedding Stationery

Pinterest pros definitely know how popular watercolor stationery has become. From sweeping brushstrokes with bold calligraphed names or intricate floral designs, the artsy invites have absolutely taken over the wedding world.

Practically a two-for-one, this Diamond Blossoms delicate, floral design meshes two luxurious design elements in one suite: watercolors & gold foil. Again, allowing us to choose the overall color scheme, we kept our suite springy and bright with blush-toned florals and rose gold foil (so chic in 2018).

The kicker is the matching watercolor envelope liners, incorporating the gorgeous trend in such a unique way. We love the way the suite looks within organic brown envelopes – like a fresh bundle of tulips wrapped up in newspaper.

Minimalistic Wedding Stationery

No era has embraced the “less is more” trend than now since perhaps our grandparents’ generation, and it’s truly showing with all the minimalistic stationery suites we’ve seen in so many recent weddings.

Pairing bold typeface with one (or two) eye-catching design elements is the key to mastering the minimalistic wedding invitations. For our Simple Solid Frame suite, we’ve chosen a natural, recycled looking paper that blends well with our gold design. With gold envelopes and natural brown paper, the design is minimal, yet luxurious.

The Thank You cards, with customizable name and greeting inside, are such a great way to stay cohesive with your stationery even after the wedding is over. Not to mention, if you order them with your suite, that’s one less thing to think about after the wedding.
