Watercolor wedding invitations have burst onto the wedding scene in a major way within the last five years. Often we see it in the form of vintage floral and modern greenery designs but we’re starting to see a more contemporary watercolor look emerge. That paired with the growing popularity of gray watercolor weddings has inspired us to create this soft, simple approach to your special day.

Sweet Simplicity

Watercolor artwork has a sweet simplicity to it that we can all appreciate and admire. Any child who takes an art class starts out learning the joys of watercolor. Its innate beauty and nostalgic value makes it a uniquely sweet and romantic choice for a wedding theme. Take that simplicity and start reinterpreting it for your wedding. For example, the matte gray dinner plates become incredibly eye-catching with a splash of gold on top. The gray wedding cake with a splatter of gold foil and simple white tier at the top is equally pretty. Another fabulous finishing touch for this gray and gold wedding is the custom wedding napkins with foil stamped personalization.

Watercolor Whimsy

No matter the subject, whether it’s vintage flowers or abstract shapes, watercolor paintings have a whimsical quality that’s absolutely beautiful. The group of bridesmaids shown here might be one of our all-time favorite ways of incorporating the wedding theme. Look at the Watercolor Burst Wedding Invitations at the top and now take a look at those bridesmaids gowns. The range of shades is subtle but different and it’s like they jumped straight out of the artwork with its varying intensities of color. Absolutely stunning!

Pick Your Color

Like most wedding invitations here at Ann’s Bridal Bargains, you can choose your artwork color for the Watercolor Burst Wedding Invitations and we just happened to go with the soft look of a blue and slate watercolor wedding. However, you have to play around with this invitation because choosing another color dramatically changes the look and will surely inspire your own unique wedding style!
