Long gone are the days of Monotype Corsiva used on binary colour cardstock…
Make room for custom fonts and graphics, hand painted designs, shimmery layers, and much much more… Picking out stationery is one of the most explosively fun and creative aspects of planning your dream wedding… No exaggeration! Taking brides to a stationary consult is one of my favourite parts of the whole wedding planning process.
So many colours, fonts, textures, designs… Oh my! All coming together to express the essence and unique feel of your wedding – It’s like an amuse bouche of your wedding day; a little sneak preview to your guests of the exciting day they will not want to miss!
Here are a few spectacular wedding stationery ideas for today’s modern and trendy wedding…
And another gorgeous creation from Momental Designs, this time with a hand painted look in linen, gold and sage… I love the look of hand painted invites!
We are lucky to have such amazingly talented stationers, even in Calgary - such as the fabulous gals at The Social Page whom designed this perfectly pink invitation suite & menu for the Julianne Young Weddings booth at the Calgary Bridal Expo 2012.
And last but not least, paper cut out style invites (also called Papel Picado or perforated) are making a huge splash this year in stationary trends. Here are a few ideas from a fabulous post in WedLuxe via Paper Damsels.
As you can see, there are so many options when it comes to choosing your wedding invitations - I know it can seem overwhelming! The key is to have fun with it, express your wedding style, and be creative.
Personally, I think it’s also a great idea to find a creative and professional stationary designer to work with, that will be able to put together the perfect expression for your unique wedding – It’s amazing what these people can do!
Have a lovely day,
