These days, when looking for Indian wedding invitation design, not many will go for the classic and traditional patterns out there. While there’s nothing wrong with these but if you care about keeping your big day firmly rooted in the here and now, considering contemporary and trend-setting options are the most easy ways to do that.
Let’s take a look at some of the latest trends in the Indian wedding industry for stationery designs seen in 2019 going into 2020.
Handmade Paper Wedding Invitations
Using the raw, organic, 100% cotton, deckled edge handmade paper has been the rage and we’re here for it! Paired with spot calligraphy or full calligraphy, printed in foil gives a whole new look to this luxury wedding invitation suite.
Simple Classic Wedding Invitations
“Less is more”, “There’s beauty in simplicity” are not just sayings, they actually mean what they intend to. Going clean with lines and designs, hand-drawn custom illustrations for the wedding not only enhances the look and feel but also adds a personal touch to the wedding invite. For instance, we customised the below wedding invitation with the flowers (hydrangeas and baby’s breath), the bride and groom used in their decor.
Watercolor Wedding Invitations
Watercolor florals and splashes have been prettying up 2019 weddings and still going strong in 2020 wedding invitation stationery. From loose florals to hand-painted maps and even venue illustrations or pet portraits, watercolors lend an artistic, custom feel to wedding stationery. This subtle way of adding color to your paper has a delicate, romantic feel when fashioned in pastels, or a bold and wild vibe when brushed with bright hues. Following blue watercolor wedding invitations we had done for our couple who got married in Aruba, planned by SJS Events. The hand-painted ganesha element adds the traditional touch to this modern invite.
Wedding Invitation Envelope Calligraphy
Envelope addressing in calligraphy is the tiniest but most classic detail you could add to your luxury wedding invitation while making the finishing touches. Seeing their names in handwritten calligraphy will enthral your guests and make them feel special. Beautiful handwritten addresses are in fashion just like spot calligraphy for bride and groom’s names.
Wedding Invites With Wax Seals
Wax seals have made the biggest comeback because they’ve actually been around for hundreds of years. Wax seals have become the new hot trend in 2020 and will definitely be sticking around for the coming years. With dozens of color options, and unlimited design potential, wax seals elevate an invitation suite! They make each invitation look like a small gift for each guest.
If you’re interested in wax seals, we’d love to help you incorporate them into your invitation suite. Whether it’s on the outer envelope, on the invitation suite itself, or incorporated into the tie-around, they hold your invitation suite together. The options are endless!
And it’s time to start thinking about the stationery for your 2020 weddings! In addition to the details like: who, where and when, couples can personalize their wedding invitations by choosing a color, texture, details, and perhaps adding some of the 2020 wedding invitation trends we discussed that might just complement the rest of your wedding’s decor and the location or venue.
