Fancy wedding invitations don’t need to look like they are stuck in yesteryear. Your options have increased over the years. Check out these ideas for keeping your wedding invitations elegant while adding a modern flair.
Choose Unique Colors
The tradition is for wedding invitations to be white with black, gray or silver lettering. While these color combinations are gorgeous, they may not reflect your true personality. You can modernize your invitations by choosing unique color combinations instead. Sophisticated, minimalist couples often consider black with silver or white fonts. The simple switch keeps things fresh without taking too much away from tradition. Whimsical couples may consider pastels, such as peach and pale blue, or go for bright colors like pink and orange.
Consider the Font You Use
Script fonts combined with a traditional sans-serif are wedding planners’ usual go-to, but this combination has been in use for so long that it doesn’t make for a memorable fancy wedding invitation. While a sans-serif is still a good idea for the main information because it makes it easier to read, consider using a modern, bold, non-script font for the couple's names.
Select Non-Traditional Shapes or Sizes
Rectangular invitations are common, so select something unique to stand out from the crowd. Curved edges are still elegant while adding interest. If you have a lot of information to fit on the invitation, consider a tri-fold option. Do you have an engagement picture that you adore? Add it as the background on your wedding invitation.
