Wedding Invitation and Wedding Day Stationery Trends for 2019 | Indianapolis Custom Wedding Invitations and Laser Cutting

We have had a blast designing all of our clients’ custom wedding invitations and “day of” wedding stationery! We’ve seen a few trends from previous years hold strong, and have also seen a few new trends pop up in the wedding world. Here’s a snippet of what we’re seeing in 2019!
Who doesn’t love a luxurious fabric like velvet? We are slowly seeing it take the place of silk in wedding trends. Velvet can be incorporated into so many aspects of wedding stationery. Velvet ribbon can bundle your stacked invitation pieces (as well as accent your bridal bouquet). You can incorporate a velvet envelope liner, for a pop of color and texture as guests open their invitations. You can even print directly on it – our favorite being gold foil printing, for the most luxurious look.
We’ve even laser engraved on velvet for table numbers, favor tags and place cards. The possibilities with this luxurious textile are pretty endless. We are welcoming this pretty trend with open arms!
I mean, talk about fashion forward! This textile is making a debut on the wedding scene this year and we couldn’t be more excited. It takes wedding invitations and stationery to a new level!
One of the ways we’ve used it this year is to bundle together wedding invitation suites. We’ve ditched the standard paper wrap-around band, and simply tied on a monogram tag with thin strips of leather.
What’s fun about leather is that it comes in so many hues – camel being our favorite, as it’s a lovely neutral to compliment almost any wedding color palette.
Another way we’ve used this trending material is in table numbers. One of our recent couples tied the knot at the beautiful White Willow Farms in Arcadia. Their style was modern “Southern Weddings” style farm wedding. We used a camel-colored leather and laser engraved the table number into it, for a branded look. The table numbers were to hang from the antlers they were incorporating into the centerpiece arrangements. So cool and unique, right?
We’re seeing the blush and ivory requests quickly fade, and are now seeing an uptick in custom design requests for invitations and wedding stationery in deeper boho-style hues. Think warm and rustic colors, mixed with moody hues such as burgundy, black, and navy. These color palettes are rich and romantic – we can see why brides and wedding planners are so drawn to them this wedding season.
The most popular metallic used to be Gold, but Rose Gold is nudging its way to the top this wedding season. It’s a popular request for wedding invitations, specifically when foil printing is the preferred print option. If we were to guess why it’s rising to popularity so quickly, we’ve venture to guess that it pairs well with all three new trends listed above!
** BONUS: We are now offering foil printing in house! The biggest perk is that it no longer requires a custom plate, like traditional gold foil stamping typically does. This allows us to print variable data – such as escort cards and guest addresses on invitation envelopes. Providing it in house (instead of outsourcing) also allows us to offer it at a more cost effective price point. (And yes, we have Rose Gold foil in stock and ready to print!)
