Our Favorite Modern Wedding Invitation Ideas
1.Design with foil:
Foil-pressed accents are timeless pieces of wedding invitation design. For invitations with foil-pressed designs that are more modern, choose invitations that use it in unexpected (and often more casual) ways. Invites that are foil-pressed are available in a variety of colors such as gold, silver, bronze, and many more. Adding a bit of shine to your invitations with foil-pressed linework, bold-foiled shapes, and playful foiled typography is all a modern trend.
2. Geometric Shapes:
Embrace bold checkerboard patterns and unexpected ways to use color or texture within the boundaries of geometric patterns are becoming a hallmark of modern graphic design. Choosing a design that plays with geometric shapes is a great alternative to traditional single-color backgrounds and gives a quirky touch to a more urban setting.
3. Abstract lines:
Abstract lines are another way to add a modern touch to simpler invitations. You can choose designs that evoke the shape of rocks and agate stones or design ones that feature single-line illustrations for a more minimalist feel.
4. Chic typography:
The modern wedding invitation styles tend to skip classic calligraphy and favor bold typography. There is also a version of this that works for every type of couple. If your vibe is chic, but fun, try to design your typography in unexpected ways - think about text that's arched or follows a curving line. For more formal couples, incorporating clean-cut typography and hand-lettered script can create a refined, dynamic vibe.
5. Sans serif font:
San Serif fonts are a modern typography icon. This font family uses clean, crisp lines that are the same width throughout, which gives invitations a graphic and fresh feel. What's the bonus? The font style works particularly well in digital environments, so you can create a wedding website that looks just as good as your invitation.
5. Neutral colors:
The modern design isn't just about bold and bright colors. If you prefer a more neutral palette, plan to use classic blacks and whites in unexpected ways. You can go for something artistic by using graphic black accents, noding to a black tie dress code with bold black bow tie elements, or keeping things simple with a rich black background. Arches: Arched accents are good for softer geometric designs. Depending on the style, invitations can be cut into an arch, fonts can appear, or images can be cropped into arch shapes. The best way to stand out from the crowd is with each one.
The modern wedding invitation designers of Elegantweddinginvites prefer watercolor accents with free flowing linework. You can find styles using watercolor in unexpected ways: Think graphic single brush strokes, soft splotches in bold and complementary colors, and layered geometric patterns.

What is Vellum?
Vellum overlays are smooth translucent papers used to create a luxurious layered appearance when combined with fine stationery. It has a rich history that dates back to the very beginning of Vellum paper. A high-quality parchment paper made of calfskin originally called "Vellum," which was stretched and treated on a wooden frame. Vellum today is not made from animals. In contrast, it's made with plasticized cotton or cellulose fibers from plants and trees. This translucent paper comes in a variety of colors, weights, textures, brands, and transparency levels. It is smooth to the touch and feels almost like plastic.
