One of the hottest trends in wedding invitations right now is watercolor. These invites are awash in hues highlighting the wedding's color palette--whether vibrant or muted. Here are a few invitations that show off this trend's versatility and beauty!
The most popular types of watercolor invitations are those with abstract designs. Above, this cloud-like pattern in soft peaches could announce any type of wedding, from vintage to modern.
Below, these brushstrokes in sweet shades of pink, yellow, and orange bespeak a subtle and refined affair.
If you like blackboard-inspired invitations but would prefer to use color instead, watercolor invites in a deep shade of lilac (below) might be just the ticket!
For a more modern aesthetic, try an invite like the one below in orange and yellow. The shapes created around the monogram have a cool stencil effect, and gives depth of dimension to the invitation.
Brides often associate watercolor invites with other light, summer-appropriate trends. But this technique can be used for any season. This jewel-toned invitation below features white lettering on top of amber and berry splashes of deep color, and would be gorgeous for a fall wedding.
Simple botanical wreaths look sophisticated in a monochromatic watercolor design like this one.
Ikat designs aren't just for Southwestern weddings. Especially when done in a soft watercolor style, this modern pattern draws you in.
Bolder, modern brides will love this watercolor version of a bouquet of anemones and hand-drawn stripes (below).
If you like watercolor style, but prefer a more minimalist hand, find an invite with brushstroke styled calligraphy and one or two "illustrated" elements like this rose (above) or arrows (below).
