trend spot: pretty paper for 2018

February 5th, 2018 | Julia Braime

Millenial Pink Moodboard

We’re forever looking ahead to spot the upcoming styles in wedding décor and themes, and today we welcome Bride and Groom Direct – wedding invitation and stationery retailer known for beautiful wedding invitations – to the blog to reveal their top three key trends for 2018 wedding invitations.

millennial pink

Millennial pink and blush pink are the wedding invitations shade to have for 2018. Pink will never be out of style for weddings and this particular shade will give the colour a refreshing and modern uplift! It’s a great way to tie your wedding invitations into your wedding colour scheme.

soft watercolours

Incorporate one of 2018’s biggest stationery trends into your wedding and opt for a soft watercolour invitation. Available in a wide range of colours from purple, to mint green you’ll be able to find a watercolour wedding invitation that is perfect for your wedding theme.

Watercolour Wedding Invitations

olive green

Taking influence from the 1970’s, this shade is one of the must have colours of 2018. The beautiful shade is a great way to use an uplifting colour in your wedding that will instantly give your wedding stationery a touch of style!

Olive Green Wedding

yellow wedding invitations

It can be hard to work colour into your wedding, especially if you have a lot of bridesmaids to please! If you have your heart set on including something bright as a part of your wedding, why not use your stationery to do so? Yellow is a great choice when looking to include colour, it symobolises positivity and new life – and is scientifically proven to make us happy, as we associate the colour with the sun! It is an especially perfect choice for a spring or summer wedding. Yellow doesn’t have to be bold either, consider using a paler yellow instead. Looking for inspiration? We love these colourful wedding invitations, there is lots of options if you already have a few colour selections in mind.

Are you looking for something a little different? Colour isn’t the only way trends and style can be added to your wedding invitations. These top ticks below are perfect for weddings with a decor theme, and include this year’s most popular wedding themes.

photo wedding invitations

The popularity of candid photography at weddings is on the rise again and to be honest, we don’t understand why it ever went out of fashion in the first place! Candid photos allow you, the bride (and groom) to look behind the scenes at the bits of your wedding you didn’t see. Pop up photo booths are becoming a huge hit at weddings at the moment, and are a great way to loosely theme your wedding. Why not introduce that theme by having a photo of you and your groom on the front of your wedding invitations? Depending on budget, many couples are actually having photoshoots to get that perfect ‘candid’ moment on the front of their invitations!

diy wedding invitations

Another huge trend right now, is to make your own wedding invitations. This is great if you are a whizz at crafts and have enough time to hand craft perhaps over 100 wedding invitations. However, if you aren’t able to make your own from scratch, Bride and Groom Direct actually sells DIY wedding invitations kits. You can buy all of the items you need to give your invitations that handmade appearance with a professional touch.

What are your thoughts on these wedding invitations colours and themes? If you have any suggestions, or thoughts we’d love to hear them.

Bride and Groom Direct retails a huge range of wedding invitations; ranging from traditional styles to the latest trends. You’ll also find the perfect wedding stationery and favours to complement your wedding invitations.
