Wedding Invitation Color Trend : Mint Green

It’s fresh, it’s soft, and it’s one of the hottest color trends in stationery. Mint green pairs perfectly with neutrals like bold black, charcoal gray, and warm brown in so many different invitation styles. The versatile hue can be combined with elegant script and ornate ornament for an ultra upscale look, but it’s equally at home when paired with sleek, mid-century style typography and pattern. Check out these lovely (and minty) invitations to see just how cool, both literally and figuratively, mint green can be.

Meghan + Ben’s Romantic, Nostalgic Wedding Invitations

Romantic Vintage Inspired Wedding Invitations

This utterly gorgeous, custom wedding invitation suite comes to us from Coral Pheasant, who created the beautiful suite for Meghan and Ben’s summer Long Island wedding. I’m completely crushing on pretty much everything about this suite, from the fantastic typography to the soft, romantic color palette, amazing floral details, and vintage map postcard RSVP cards. Mmm, swoon…

Soft Romantic Wedding Invitations

Coral Pheasant Custom Wedding Invitations

Nichole from Coral Pheasant shares:

Meghan and Ben were mar­ried on Long Island this sum­mer, and the wed­ding they put together was a romantic and nos­tal­gic affair. The paper story uses a large, narrow sans serif font for a touch of modernity and is combined with delicate and flourished lines and to bring in softness. It was impor­tant to Meghan and Ben to incor­po­rate a map and a post­card feel given their many trav­els over the course of their rela­tion­ship and the writ­ten cor­re­spon­dence that resulted. I found a vin­tage map of Long Island, altered the col­ors to fit their wed­ding palette, and designed the back of the map and the RSVP card in a man­ner rem­i­nis­cent of old postcards. The floral envelope liner is a nod to the flowers they chose for their wedding. The main invitation was letterpress printed on Crane’s Lettra, and the additional cards and envelopes were flat printed.

As a sur­prise for Meghan, Ben secretly reached out to Nichole to design a coor­di­nat­ing card for her that revealed a spe­cial, roman­tic week­end com­plete with a hot air bal­loon ride. The special moment was beautifully cap­tured by Robert and Kath­leen Pho­tog­ra­phers when Megan opened the card on their wedding day:

East Meets West Letterpress Wedding Invitations

East Meets West Letterpress Wedding Invitations

It was crush at first sight when I spotted this beautiful letterpress wedding invitation package over at FPO recently. The gorgeous, gray and white suite was inspired by the Chinese character, 王,which stands for both the bride and groom’s last names, and the design is a visual blend of the couple’s “eastern descent and upbringing” and their westernized lifestyle.

The Chinese character was used to create the pattern on the front of the wedding invitation card and sets a modern, east-meets-west tone, inspiring complimentary patterns featured throughout the suite. A whimsical, script typeface adds a touch of playfulness here and there and is a nice compliment to the straightforward, sans-serif face featured throughout the suite. Head over to FPO to find out much more and to see additional photos of this beautiful, modern wedding suite.
