The Traditional Bride
Think classic script and serif fonts, satin bows, rich ivory cardstock and a pop of sweet pink.
Welcome guests to a seaside wedding with found seashells or starfish, relaxed script fonts and calming colors like pool blue and sandy brown.
The Garden Bride
Incorporate floral images – either illustrations or photographs – in a garden-inspired palette: lilac or lavender blues and purples, rose reds and pinks.
The Holiday Bride
Add sparkle with metallics, keep it festive with candy-cane red or evoke a rustic winter wonderland with forest green. Just be sure to keep the Christmas elements subtle to maintain sophistication and to avoid your wedding invitation looking like a holiday party invite.
The Contemporary Bride
Think high-contrast color duos, lowercase lettering and atypical formatting, like block paragraphs.
The Picnic Bride
For a relaxed backyard wedding in spring or summer, consider bright colors, pretty patterns and interesting fibers. Sunshine yellow, gingham and lace dress up this happy invitation.
