You know that Spencer Minuteman Press offers the best digital printing in Melbourne, but you might be surprised to find out that includes wedding invitations. Your wedding is the biggest and most important party you’ll ever host, and it begins with choosing invitations. Take a look at some of the hottest wedding design trends.
Save the Date / Wedding Announcement
Most couples send out a save-the-date card or wedding announcement approximately six months prior to their big day. This should be simpler than your formal invitation, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. The most popular option at the moment is using a photo of the couple as the backdrop for the date. We offer a variety of picture printing services and options, but currently a ‘photo-booth’ style picture is very popular. Compared to a formal engagement shot, the effect of a photo-booth style picture is playful and the vintage vibe lends an air of romance.
As with the save-the-dates, right now, casual is king of the wedding invitation. Gone are the days of fussy opaque overlays and ribbon details. Instead, rustic and whimsical touches are in favour. For example, couples are overlapping the bride and groom’s thumbprint to create a heart on the seal of the envelope or using a flag detail as the header for the invite. Of course, you want your invitation printed on thick, high-quality paper, but opt for a matte finish in muted tones as opposed to a glossy look in harsh black and white. Think of colours you find in nature: straw, grass, sky and golden wattle. When it comes to typeface, the trend at the moment is mixed fonts, which give invitations a fun, retro look.
Embossing instantly makes an invitation feel special, and it is certainly one of the “it” trends. Spencer Minuteman Press offers embossing services, which can be added to your invitation and envelopes for an elegant yet simple touch. We also offer foil stamping to really take your invitations to the next level.
One final tip to ensure your wedding invitation is on trend is to create a wedding emblem or logo to use throughout your wedding. This is a small symbol that reflects the couple. The symbol can be anything from a graphic flower or bird to an ornate design of the couples’ initials. Come on in to Spencer Minuteman Press to speak with one of our designers. You will love how creating and using a small symbol on everything from your invitations to your cocktail napkins will make your wedding cohesive, classy, and unforgettable.
