From there – the only thing that’s left is putting your creative spin on it. Wedding planning is such a fun adventure for our couples and really allows you to think about the message you want to send your guests.
Cotton Wedding stationery is made out of … You guessed it – cotton! It is popular for an elevated feel when you have a lot of calligraphy on your invitation or you want a bold look. The edges are always rough appearing which gives it a hand torn look. It’s a popular trend for those going for a nostalgic vibe. Check out the hand torn stationery from this gorgeous wedding we photographed in Santa Ynez.
Acrylic stationary is definitely one of the hottest Wedding Stationery trends right now and for a good reason! They are absolutely stunning and really elevate your wedding stationary suite. They are often clear with a nice amount of contrast and vibrancy. I’m particularly fond of acrylic wedding invitations for the juxtaposition between the text and the backdrop that you place it against. It’s gorgeous to photograph and can create a large variety of pretty flat lays with them.
If you are a couple who is trying to have an eco-friendly wedding or having a wedding that is more on the rustic side, a wedding stationary suite that is made of repurposed materials might be a great choice for you. You can pick from a variety of different textures so that it is absolutely perfect for your needs. We love recycled wedding invites because not only is it a good cause – but they can be really gorgeous, too!
If you want something very heavy duty that can be printed on easily, you should consider heavy cardstock. Thick sturdy paper that won’t bend easily and won’t bend in the mail is always a smart decision. And it feels super luxurious!
Another popular trend that we are in love with is embossed Wedding Stationery which is similar to engraving in that you push upwards to create texture on the invitation. With embossed invitations the graphic is actually pressed in to remain the same color. It is a beautiful technique that is both classic and exquisite.
