When it comes to wedding invitations, florals are always in style, and I love seeing how floral elements evolve with the times. Florals have made a big comeback over the past year and are standing front and center in styles that range from bold and painterly to subtle, stylized, and folksy. Here are just a few of the crush-worthy, modern floral wedding invitations that have caught my eye recently:

Everything about this eye-catching wedding suite by James Prunean for Nick + Tania’s big day is bold. From the solid splashes of coral and mint to the rich, black type – sometimes swashy and sometimes serif – these wedding invitations get your attention in a big way. I’m loving the playful little envelope flap details, too!
Nick and Tania are a very young couple and didn’t want their invitations to feel like they take themselves too seriously, especially since they are having a small ceremony with their family and friends, followed by an informal cocktail reception. Their wedding colors are coral and mint, and they wanted their invites to reflect that, so we created these dynamic invitations using different colors for each of the pieces in the suite. We also used a great font that has lots of movement to contrast the hard edges of the black borders in the design, and we love the simplicity of the bold and graphic result.

Ooh, baby, do I ever love woodgrain, and it’s even better when said woodgrain comes in the form of real wood, as is the case with these absolutely beautiful wood wedding invites from The Paper Paramour.

The nautical-themed wedding trend shows no signs of slowing, and it’s no surprise. Nautical themes are perfect for weddings by the sea, and there are endless numbers of gorgeous wedding destinations that feature sun, sand, and shore. Nautical themes are incredibly versatile, too. You’ll find everything from sophisticated and preppy to whimsical and modern, anchor and rope motifs to more understated, blind debossed nautical maps, flags, and compass details. And while there are many shades of blue to be found in the palettes of these pretty invites – traditional navy, muted slate, and pale seafoam, to name but a few – you can also find complimentary colors like warm red, kelly green, and sunny yellow.
Here’s a little collection of some of the seriously crave-worthy designs that I’ve spotted recently:
Above, clockwise from top left : Rope Ampersand | Jill Means for Minted; Nautical Compass | Ruff House Art; Nautical | Anthologie Press; Nautical Classic | Sarah Gluchacki for Bella Figura; Simple Knot | Christine Loo for Minted; Calligraphy Anchor & Lighthouse | Grey Snail Press; Harbor Beach | Jessica Tierney for Bella Figura
