Modern Wedding Invitations

Who doesn’t love a great invite?  I’m such a fan of modern wedding invitations. Their use of font, color, and text (sometimes with plenty of humor) is youthful and fashion-forward.

Who doesn’t love a great invite?  I’m such a fan of modern wedding invitations. Their use of font, color, and text (sometimes with plenty of humor) is youthful and fashion-forward. Invitations don’t just let guests know the crucial details or your wedding colors, they also can set the mood for your event. Take, for example, this infographic-inspired invite (above). Is this couple going to throw a formal and reserved shindig? I think not. You know that if you check the yes box on their RSVP, you are in for one fun party!

Modern invitations can also emphasize graphic elements, such as this triangle pattern (above) or stripes (below). If your wedding is going to be more about print and pattern than colors, you should think about a wedding invite that hints at it.

Modern used to mean a lot of black and white and minimalist lines. And it still can. But a new breed of modern has emerged with cheery colors and bright design.  These festive designs give your guests a peek into not only what colors your wedding party may be rocking, but also the vibe of the big event.

Modern invites often include witty wording (love). A wedding as a couple’s launch party? Brilliant!

Typography is a big deal when it comes to modern invites. From big and loopy to narrow and all caps, each one has a unique mood.
