Top Wedding Invitation Trends of 2018

Handmade Paper

There is no denying handmade paper has made a victorious comeback. Handmade paper started showing her face again a few short years ago with a whole new look to follow. We are seeing trends with gorgeous, flowing calligraphy, vellum overlays, and compiled textures. These pictures here show an example of the style of invitation that goes with handmade paper that everyone cannot get enough of.

Vellum

Vellum is one of the biggest of 2018. It is being incorporated in so many different ways. The invitation can be printed onto the vellum along with beautiful designs (usually floral). There are vellum envelopes, belly bands, and menus. Because of the light opacity of the paper it gives invitations sets that perfect soft whimsical feel. Check out what I mean in these pictures below.

Vintage Stamps

This is a trend I see increasing more and more this year for those customers who like every detail to be consistent. Vintage anything is usually awesome, and these stamps do not dissapoint. It aids in giving those handmade paper invitations an extra vintage, look but with a modern feel through the more trendy colors. Take a look at how cool these stamps look on these wedding invitation sets.

Laser Cut

Lasercut has pretty much moved on from a trend to a classic. Lasercut is so advanced and powerful that it really does not put any limit to your imagination.  From invitations, to belly bands, to engraving wood or cork, the laser can do it all. Here are our most requested lasercut invitations this year.

Wax Stamps

This is my personal favorite trend so far. It mixes the old with the new perfectly. Wax stamps have been used for hundreds of years: it used to be used in almost every letter to seal an envelope, as well as prove who the letter is from. If it had the kings' seal you knew it was legitimate and really from him.  Now the old custom has come back around and is one of the top wedding trends of 2018. It combines the new because you can easily custom design your own logo or names in the stamp. And there are special glue guns to place the wax where it needs to go. There are even sticker wax seals if you do not feel like dealing with the wax yourself. It is easy, beautiful, customized, and the perfect addition to your invitation set.
