The designers at With Love Wedding Stationery reveal the top trends for 2016 and beyond…
As the fashion for relaxed, more informal celebrations continues, wedding stationery is following suite. Ceremonies or receptions can now be under dappled shade in woodland clearings or a tipi in a flower-filled meadow. With this in mind, designs which are a little whimsical are very on trend, giving a less structured and more personal feeling to the wedding. One of our brand new ranges ‘Enchanted’, does just that with a mix of fairy-tale foliage and dancing butterflies.
My absolute favourite stationery trend for 2016 is watercolour, with its delicate, romantic feel. Combine this with elegant script fonts for a classic look or create a more rustic effect with fanciful fonts and flourishes. I am obsessed my small cottage garden and so big beautiful roses and cascading sweet peas have inspired our new collections – invitations that are truly a work of art! ‘Floral heart’ is perfect for a pretty country wedding. Think floral crowns, bright bridesmaids and lots of colour. It’s just so cheerful!
Bold splashes of colour
With colour being very important this season, stationery is becoming bolder and brighter. I have seen burgundy, wine and berry reds coming through in unstructured big bridal bouquets of late and it has become a big influence on stationery choices. If you’re nervous about using colour, wedding stationery is a perfect way to add an accent without going all in!
Of course the dusky hues are definitely here to stay with blush pink taking centre stage, hotly followed by baby blue and the dependable creams and ivory shades.
Fun with fonts
And finally, eclectic fonts are also bang on trend for wedding invitations in 2016. It’s a nice touch to make the couple’s names the motif, giving the stationery real personality.
