Wedding Trends 2012

As you put your personality on paper with your Save the Dates and Wedding Invitation, we hope you’re inspired by these stationery trends for 2012, but certainly not defined by them.

Slim Bride and Groom Invitations are on the upside of the trendy world, they are fun and bring a elegance to your guests. Hot topics include the look of Old-Hollywood, where you can get your movie star on, to an event that’s more royally inspired—where the fairytale really does come true. Carry the look of your favorite theme—be it an era, a destination, a hobby, your culture, or season. Take your favorite elements and carry them to your attire, décor and wedding stationery items.

Love color? 2012 is the year for you…from soft blushes like pastel pinks, spearmint, and beach nautical blues. Anything bold and saturated for a theme is a great trend like Palm Passion Invitations with the perfect pastel and a beach theme. Choose the hues that make your heart sing and leap for joy! Your wedding stationery will be on trend –whether you love the elegance of a soft neutral or shades that are daring and unexpected.

Have a favorite pattern? Here are a few of the most popular patterns in style and on trend for 2012: animal prints, classic damask, chevrons, geometric color-blocking, and mix and match patterns. Whether your pattern outlines the details of your big day, or used all-over in the design—carry the pattern to each of your stationery items to help you create a unified look. Graphic white, metallic neutrals and royal combos like black paired with yellow, pink or white, have once again proven themselves to offer a classic look that’s ultra modern at the same time.

Crisp, clean and stately, personalize your wedding stationery with an enduring look that’s romantic and timeless.  Elegant Border Invitations have a floral border trimmed in chocolate brown forms an elegant frame for your words of invitation. The beauty is definitely in the details. Impress your guests and invite them to discover the little embellishments that add punch and pizzazz to your wedding stationery. Use something like Red Damask Seal and Label Set and colorful envelope liners to create dimension and visual appeal.

A creative and unique typeface on a simple design has the ability to take the look of your wedding stationery anywhere you want it to go. From setting off your names in a fanciful font on your save the date, to introducing your guests to your Gatsby-style theme on your wedding invitation, play with the fonts to fit the style and the tone of your event.

Couples are craving what nature is so readily offering—casual elegance in warm, earthy tones. Natural-looking textures and memorable motifs that reflect the beauty of a natural setting, are what set a rustic wedding apart. Charming accents include handmade signs, eclectic flowers, and burlap table runners. From an intimate garden ceremony, to a barn venue or picturesque vineyard, personalize your stationery to mirror the mood.

Remember to go for the design that makes you smile and inspires your style. Whether you’re a classic bride, love all things trendy, or prefer all things unique and non-traditional, set the tone and create a signature wedding stationery look through colors, photos, fonts, and your own special wording to depict your style.
