Overwhelmed? Don’t be! Start by browsing wedding invitations to discover what themes you’re most drawn to. It’s a natural place to begin since your invite is the introduction to your entire day.
These are our most popular themes for this wedding season. Each feels fresh, but also has staying power, which is why we love them most!
1. Greenery Paired with Gold
Greenery has been floating around the wedding scene for a few years now. The spin we love this wedding season, is greenery paired with gold details. This versatile trend can be used in practically any setting too. We love it used in a sweet outdoor affair, but it is also adaptable for indoor weddings.
Invite with a greenery-themed invitation, then use greenery details and gold metallic accents to bring it all together. Think dainty golden hair combs, a greenery adorned arch and simple centerpieces made of silver dollar eucalyptus, lamb’s ear and myrtle.
2. Spring Garden
Using flowers in your wedding seems obvious, but creating a wedding-day theme straight out of a garden brings floral-style to a whole new level.
When setting a garden theme, choose big, soft, gorgeous floral blooms and fabrics that complement this vibe. Our watercolor-style floral wedding invitations are a great starting point to get inspired. Think peonies, Juliet roses and giant dahlias. Dress your bridesmaids in light and flowing gowns and dress the tables in floor-length linens.
Of course, add flowers everywhere. Go with big bouquets, a flowering backdrop at your ceremony and lavish floral centerpieces. If you’re on a budget, no worries. Purchase bulk roses from a club store like Costco and enlist your besties to create simple bouquets.
3. Rustic Romance
The rustic wedding trend has been around for so many years, it’s definitely more than a trend. We’ve seen lots of different spin-offs on rustic styles such as woodland.
The theme that’s peeking this season puts a romantic touch on rustic style. Using woodgrain paired with sweet sayings and florals is the best way to pull off this look.
Using wood is easy – choose wood chairs and decorate tables with wooden rounds. Add flowers and greenery in your wedding colors for a perfect mix of rustic meets elegant style.
4. Country Sunflowers
Decorating your wedding around one type of flower is a trend we see each year. From calla lilies to daisies, we’ve seen the trends come and go.
This season, sunflowers are taking center stage. Ideal for country-themed wedding, sunflowers are such a sweet and happy bloom! And the best part is, they’re affordable. You can easily create your own sunflower bouquets and float single sunflower blooms water for chic and simple centerpieces.
5. Autumn Jewel Tones
Fall wedding are crazy-popular, but a classic autumn theme isn’t for everyone.
Instead, focus on a creating a theme around a jewel-toned color palette. These rich colors are trending big time. Think deep navy, hunter green, deep teal, gold and even dark fuchsia. Choose your favorite shade as a focal point (we love dark green!), then sprinkle in additional colors for contrast. Don’t forget to add a hint of gold to create instant sparkle.
6. Black and Floral
Typically, floral wedding themes have leaned soft and feminine. And even though pastels are pretty, we are soooo ready for the latest trend in floral themes – black floral! This dark and moody wedding style pairs flowers with bold black to create a daring look.
To pull of this look, go over-the-top with black. Dress the bridal party and receptions tables in black. The flowers you choose – in any color – will pop against dark shade beautifully!
7. Chic Minimalist
If you’re thinking that a minimalist-themed wedding sounds boring, think again. This modern style may appear simple, but it takes some thoughtful planning to pull off this trending theme.
This sophisticated style is achieved by creating pairing modern font pairing with a simple color palette – usually black and white. Start with your invitation and play around with fonts until you find a combination you love. Use the same fonts in custom touches on everything from your ceremony programs to table cards.
Happy planning, brides and grooms! xoxo
