3 Tips to Choose A Perfect Simple Wedding Invitation
Using color, typography, white space, texture, printing style, and paper type as elements of our simple wedding invitations help make pared-back designs look as unique as possible. Here are a few of our favorite design elements to focus on when crafting a simple wedding invitation.
1. Background color:
Color is paramount to a simple wedding invitation design. The background color you choose can help you set the tone for your big day. Bright, saturated colors communicate a cheerful, playful feel, soft pastels convey a more elevated, elegant spirit, deep greens and blues can invoke an outdoor venue, and stark dark colors can inspire a night of serious fun.
2. Card shape:
We love skipping the standard rectangular invitation shape (or even a smaller invitation size) to add a bit of personality to simple wedding invitation styles. Our designs are available in a variety of shapes, making it easy to match your wedding's aesthetic. You can choose from bold arches, rectangles with softly rounded edges, scalloped details, and dozens more. (Don't worry, all of them can be folded in the envelope size you want to include with your invitation!)
Even if you prefer a more simple style, you do not have to abandon your engagement photos. You can offer your guests a glimpse into your love by choosing a black-and-white background for your invitation, or a color photo to embellish the design element in designs that feature minimal text.
3. Single color elements:
If you want a full-bleed background color when creating your invitation, you can incorporate smaller touches of color throughout the design element or script. This is a great way to add contrast and visual interest to more straightforward styles and gives guests a glimpse of what you will be using for the decor and color palette.
If you and your spouse-to-be are intrigued by a trend-forward affair, why not consider modern invitations? Your invitation will set the tone for the big day. If you want to experiment with tradition or are holding your ceremony at a venue that features an of-the-moment decor theme, your invitations and stationery should also reflect that. Don't let your personality get in the way of your wedding invitations: modern wedding invitation design is all about putting your personality on full display and having fun doing it. Elegantweddinginvites' independent wedding invitation designers are well versed in the modern aesthetic.
We're not just following trends, we're setting trends with our modern wedding invitation styles. From bold typography, playful color blocking, and geometric shapes, our style is as simple as it is bold. Modern wedding invitations take inspiration from forward-thinking graphic design. There is a modern invitation style that can suit any type of wedding, but all of Elegantweddinginvites’s modern invitation designs have a few things in common. They are bold, eye-catching, and a little bit playful.
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.
