Top 4 Wedding Invitation Trends in 2017

What are the top wedding invitation trends for Philadelphia, South Jersey, and Delaware weddings in 2017? The bride and groom’s names are the focus this year for wording on the invites.  Watercolor, floral, and gold will be featured in a lot of invites in 2017.

It’s all about the names

Obviously, names have always been included on a wedding invite but now they’re taking center stage. More and more invites are focusing mostly on the bride and groom’s names in lieu of intricate art or other accents. Expect to see lots of first names prominently displayed in the center in a flourish script. You could also display both names, initials, or your monogram.

Gone are the days of plain ole white invites. Today’s watercolor invites look so much like a work of art that your guests will want to frame them (or at least display them on their fridge.) These watercolor invitations look like they were hand-drawn, but thanks to today’s printing technology can easily be replicated.  You can do watercolor in any color to match any theme or season.

Florals are huge right now in wedding invites.  You’ll see them as floral borders or accents adding a burst of color to the stationery. This trend isn’t limited to typical wedding flowers like roses either-you’ll see succulents, cacti, palms, and other greenery in a lot of invites.

Gold is very trendy for weddings in 2017-and the invites are no exception.  Gold can be an accent like in gold dots, used just in your name to make it stand out, as a border, or in the envelopes. Foil stamping can also add metallic foil to make your invites stand out.
