What makes an iconic Wedding Invitation in 2020?
Your invitations will be the first glimpse of your wedding for many of your guests, so it’s important to create a lasting impression! But what will 2020 have in stock for your choice of card stock? From bold new materials or eco-friendly paperless invitations, 2020 might just be a stationary renaissance!
Create a work of art
Nothing is quite as breathtaking as a carefully drawn, fine-line design. Why not commission an artist to create a magnificent sketch of the wedding venue, sprawling around the back of the invitation? The right design can really help to set the tone, plus the invitation itself becomes a special keepsake as well. There’s so much variation you can include, from the venue, your favourite flowers or an elegant coat-of-arms – the only limit is the artist’s imagination!
Words, words, words
While not as eye-catching as a liner, a carefully woven short bit of text can really help to convey the tone of your wedding (while relaying all the necessary details, of course!). Whether you want to keep it informal or include an extract from your favourite poem – having a talented writer compose your invitation can transform your it from a humble bit of stationary to a work of art! Remember, 2020 is all about uniqueness and individuality – so whatever you decide to include, make sure it encapsulates your own personality!
Exciting, new materials
Nobody ever said that your invitations have to be made out of cardstock. 2020 will see couples take bold new leaps with their stationary. Whether it’s shying away from traditional, achromic designs in favour of big, vibrant and bright colour tones or even experimenting with new materials. Whether it is creating rustic, homemade invitations from recycled paper for an authentic, personal touch or making your invitation out velvet, stone, slate or vellum for a truly iconic invitation!
Reduced Environmental Impact
Many couples nowadays are looking for a way to reduce their weddings’ carbon footprint – that includes reducing the wastage of food and the use of plastic. For those who are environmentally conscious, digital invitations are a great way to go. They make handling the logistics of the wedding a breeze, as you can immediately see who’s RSVPed and updating details is quick and simple.
Even if you’re determined to send out regular invitations, you could consider using digital save-the-dates as well to get the best of both worlds!
Set the theme!
If you want to create a well-synchronized wedding, it’s important to tie the invitations to specific details of the wedding. By doing so you’re giving your wedding a more complete feeling right from the start. Whether its connecting your invitation design to the venue, the fashion look or even the florals – it’s a great way to give guests a sneak peek at the vibe of the event!
