Belly Bands

One of the easiest ways to add style to your invitation set is by incorporating a belly band. Not only can they add color and texture, belly bands are neat ways to keep your invitations and inserts tidy. For a cohesive look, adorn your belly bands with a personal monogram that is continued throughout your wedding décor.

Dressed Up Envelopes
Let your invitees know that something special is on the inside by dressing up your envelopes. Introduce your wedding style with an elaborately designed envelope flap. For even more flair, line your envelopes with patterned prints in coordinating colors.

Unexpected Color Combinations
This season, it’s all about colors – bright, bold, and unexpected. Many designers are pushing the envelope with unlikely color combinations. Try pairing plum with mustard yellow, tangerine with grey, or magenta with navy. The results are absolutely stunning.

Vintage styles are coming back in a big way. From intricate damask patterns to romantic scrolls and flourishes, invitation designers are obsessed with everything vintage. For a modern twist, opt for bold colors such as teal, emerald green, chocolate brown, and pink.

The same trend that has been sweeping the world of design is now a staple in wedding stationery. The silhouette is simple and sleek but makes a powerful statement. What’s better? A solid silhouette paired with a delicate pattern provides a wonderful textural contrast.
