Recent trends have brought bright and bold wedding stationery, taking inspiration from all paths of the wedding industry, including the catwalks and high end designers. With an increase in alternative bridal looks, traditional white and ivory wedding invitations are taking a back seat, with fun and colourful designs becoming increasingly popular.

Incorporating Colour

Whether you’re looking for a geometric masterpiece, playful typography prints or beautifully bold blooms, you can easily incorporate colour into your wedding stationery. You can also accessorise simpler wedding stationery to create a bright accent colour. For example, adding a satin ribbon or colourful text to a plain ivory invite will still give the desired impact of a fun and daring look.

It’s not just your invitations either. Bright and bold wedding stationery looks fabulous for all aspects of the big day. By using on the day stationery such as menu cards, place cards, table numbers and a table plan you can also tie in your venue decoration with your stationery theme.

Colour Pop

Another major colour theme that has emerged more recently comes from the USA. Known as colour pop, it is becoming very popular with modern brides. This daring look shows us that by using contrasting and sometimes clashing colours you can create a fantastic colour popping theme, sure to wow your wedding guests. This colour pop look works particularly well with watercolour wedding stationery and fun, retro prints.
