With the New Year comes a host of newly engaged couples searching for wedding invitation inspirations. While traditional Indian wedding ceremonies have been huge events in the past, 2016 will see modern couples narrowing down their guest lists and reinventing rituals to ensure they have a fun, and affordable, Big Day.
As invitations are the first peek your guests will get of your upcoming wedding, here are some fresh trends which follow a new mantra – “personalize your wedding”. While some are continuations of trends that emerged in 2015, the others are new and are fast rising to popularity.
Trend 1 : Made for each other (Monogrammed)
Personalize your wedding invitations with monograms or create a unique logo for your own identity. Choose designs that feature your favorite font that reflects your style and personality.
Trend 2 : Florally yours (Floral & Ethnic)
Nothing is as sacred as tradition. Invite your guests with elegant paisley patterns, a timeless lotus or vibrant marigolds. These time-honored wedding invitations will create a formal atmosphere. So, go back to your roots!
Trend 3 : Royal Redux (Luxe motifs)
Inspired by historic India, a royal brocade or an elaborate palace motif are sure to make your wedding card stand out from the rest. Feel royal and grand this season!
Trend 4 : Vintage Opulence (Elegant patterns)
Integrating vintage wedding graphics is a reigning wedding trend! You can set the tone for your vintage-styled wedding by art deco designs, French vintage and simple elegant designs that will help you borrow the charm from another era.
Trend 5 : Minimalistic and Eco-friendly (Simple and Classy)
The ‘green paper’ trend will continue into 2016 and this will resonate with those looking to reduce the carbon footprint. One small catch here, these papers can be tricky to work with as they don’t like printers, so be sure to work with a qualified invitation designer so that you can make the most of your ‘green’ choices.
