    Illustrations: Many brides and grooms have loved this option because it puts a unique and personal twist on the wedding that moves away from the traditional minimalistic appeal.

    Hand lettering Designs : This means to say lettering that looks like handwriting or even, drawings that look like it's been written. It's quite the rage and looks lovely when finished. What most brides are opting to do is choose printed wedding invitations designs that make for an affordable invitation option.

    Bold Colours and Contrasts: Colour, colour, colour; it's all about colour! You will find this goes hand in hand with hand lettering and also illustrations with pops of colour whilst the colour of the paper is often white for that stark contrasting effect.

    Woodland Accents: If it was ever the time for the world to be eco friendly, it's now. Choose recycled paper (of the PCW paper variety or otherwise) for your wedding invites and match it with woodland designs and effects such as with bark designs or illustrations too.

    Embellishments: For the traditional brides and grooms who do not favour too much contrasts and pops of colour, and lean more towards quality paper stock, trims and embellishments, you will find it's your year with ribbons, buckles, clusters and appliqués being much in favour.

    Design Elements: When you take traditional design elements, they are almost always elegant and classy. As colour plays a great role in the final look, choosing a few options of designs and colour is always a good rule of thumb. Lace designs have always been considered a traditional design style that is immensely popular with wedding design. Most of these traditional designs are derived from historical decades or eras from various countries whether it's from Russia, France, Britain and more. You can be inspired by Imperial Russia, Renaissance, Victorian times and more. You will find designs that have intricate patterns and focal designs, such as filigree, flourishes, and damask to name a few.  You will also find that these scripted or serif fonts are best suited for traditional wedding invitations.

    Trims: Adding a classic decorative item to your wedding invitation design can definitely make an impact on the overall look and style. For example, if you opt to use ribbon along with a pretty faux diamante square, circle or heart shaped buckle, it'll be a very appealing. The same applies to using clusters and brooches coupled with satin ribbon styles and even lace trims to further enhance the look of your traditional wedding invite cards while keeping in line with an elegant and classy style.

  • Typography Invitations for Weddings

    If you're looking for something unique, a design never seen before, then choose to buy typography wedding invitations because it's all about the words and how it's graphically represented. As the words play the biggest role in the unique edge, the choice of colour and complementing illustration or photography can accentuate the look even more.

    The great thing about typography invitations for weddings (or any other special event, for that matter) is that the way you present your information can even hint towards what you're planning, a preview of your love story. The accompanying invitation design as well as the typeface style can decide whether it is modern or vintage typography to allow your overall wedding theme shower through in an out-of-the-box and creative way.

    There are many types of invitations that use wedding typography styles that are well received. When you choose a specific typography wedding invitation template, if you're looking to personalising it you need to also consider the complementing items, such as the following.

    The Wedding Invite Wording - The choice of typeface, also known as the font has a huge influence on how the wedding invitation will look. If you are looking for a modern design, then san serif fonts would be ideal, whilst vintage styles would lean more towards serif and scripted fonts.

    The Wedding Colour Palette - The choice of colour and how each word (or even letter) is typographically laid out matters, because you're able to make a certain word or sentence "pop" in a seamless manner. These also extend to the accompanying illustration or flourish design to any iconography you may choose to include personalising your wedding invites. Chalkboard wedding invitations are quite popular in this regard.

    Use of Photography and Placement of Typography - If you have decided the style of design you want and if it involves modern typography that is often complemented with photography, then you might want to either select the invite template you want to use so you can work the photography style around it or you could choose the opposite where you choose the photography and move the placement and choice of typography design to include.

    The options are endless when you choose to buy typography wedding invitations online as you can communicate your custom requests for personalisation through email or chat and avoid the hassle of making appointments to consult the invitations designer for minute edits and changes.
