Wedding Invitations and Stationery Trends in 2016


First and foremost, a very Happy New Year from all of us at the DreamDay Invitations! We would like to wish all our customers, fans and followers all the very best and hope that you have all welcomed 2016 with happiness and health!

 

As wedding invitations and stationery is our forte, we would very much like to let you in on some of the trends the wedding industry in Australia (and the world) will see more of this year! To go with them, we have also featured some of our new wedding invitations designs. These designs are also available as a wedding stationery suite for your wedding ceremony and reception too!

 

Botanically Inspired

We expect to see more botanically inspired wedding invitations suites featuring beautiful flora and foliage in different styles and art forms. Depending on the various choices of inspiration taken from nature, be it wild flower bouquets to scenery, we will continue to see the beauty of nature. We look forward to seeing designs with attention to detail yet with a soft finish where wedding invitation suites will feature sketches, watercolours and to high-end finishes featuring nature’s bounty.

 

Here are some of our botanically inspired wedding invite favourites!

Rustic with a Woodland Feel

Rustic weddings are a favourite for many brides (and grooms). It is another way the nature inspired trend that was much loved in 2015 (as well as a few years before that) will continue to wow us. Rustic wood grain designs, illustrated trees and wild animals (owls, foxes, and deer) are in the books. Another factor that will come into play will be the choice of paper. Consider Kraft or recycled papers for a great texture to complement your wedding stationery!

Water colour Illustrations

One of the stationery trends that blew up in the past year, we will definitely see more of these in various forms in 2016 too. This can be with illustrations of memories to clue your wedding guests of your love story, to botanic or rustic scenes and not to mention just opting for creative typography. Riding on the coattails of creativity and beautiful design, we are excited to see how water colour wedding invitations and stationery will transforms weddings in 2016!

It’s in the Type

Typography is still in (frankly, we believe it is something that will never go out of style)! Whether formal or informal, your choice of typography can bring out your intended wedding style with personality. You can transform a crisp white wedding invite card into a work of art with the use of the right typeface and lettering.

Minimalist Chic

Another timeless style that is often held hand in hand with classic two toned wedding invites (black and white being favoured greatly). You can’t go wrong with sleek minimalism! Choose quality paper stock, fuse it with some metallic touches for an added glam, but importantly keep the design open and minimal.

Gilded and Glamorous

Metallic hues will hang around this year too, but with more focus placed on warmer tones (moving away from silver) with rose gold being a favourite. Highlight minimalist designs or accent an illustrated or typography design with metallic tones.

A Touch of Colour

A little colour will always be appreciated and we love them in the use of highlights or borders to make your wedding invitations (and stationery) pop! We love brighter tones for the warmer seasons and deeper shades for the colder seasons.
