Trends in Wedding Invitations for 2011

In the coming year brides will be incorporating more organic details into their weddings, with the focus being on all things personal, hand-made, and organic. Even for the non-DIY bride, traditional artistic elements will be popular in wedding stationery.

Folk Art Style:
With current trends leaning towards more personalized, casual weddings, many couples are choosing to forgo traditional invitations and opt for stationery that is more like a work of art that represents them as a couple and their big day. Not only will we be seeing lots of more rudimentary graphics, but imperfect, hand-drawn fonts will become more popular as well.

Lace:
Lace is certainly not new to weddings, but it is definitely on the hot list for 2011. Intricately cut papers such as doilies will be very popular. On more simplistic budget-friendly stationery, lace graphics will add the same feel of romance and delicateness.

Stitching:
While most trends tend to repeat themselves over the years, sewn invitations are brand new to many of us. Hand or machine stitching is an unexpected element that adds a creative, personalized touch to wedding stationery, and brides who are looking for a unique “wow” factor are totally digging it!
