Dainty Extra+ 2017 Stationery Trends

If your big day is on the way, consider these five hot stationery trends when the designing process begins. Katie from Basic Invite shared with us her top five industry faves when it comes to creating the perfect invite. While some are innovative and some are timeless, they also can be customized for your taste.

1. Wedding Invitation Accessories (ie. Envelope liners, belly bands, colored envelopes)Invitation accessories are a must! Colored envelopes will help your invitation stand out before it’s even opened, and adding an envelope liner adds a delicate detail that is sure to charm every recipient. Belly bands, logo squares, and pre-printing guest and return addresses on your wedding invitation envelopes provides your invitation set with a crisp, clean, and formal look.

2. Gold & Silver Foil: Adding gold and silver foil is the easiest way to fancy-up your wedding invitation and add a touch of elegance to any standard invite. Gold and silver foil is a new trend that not all stationery companies are able to provide brides with. It’s perfect for a holiday card or holiday themed wedding, too!

3. Real Wood Invitations: A brand new trend that our rustic-styled brides are especially loving. Real cherry wood veneers are mounted onto heavyweight card stock for a triple-thick look. Wood invitations are already unique, but because of the integrity of the wood grain texture and knots, every single one of the unique wood invitations will be one-of-a-kind. Couples love setting themselves apart, and this is a great way to achieve that special something.

4. Photo Invitations: A timeless choice. This is a trend that will never go out of style. Engagement photos have been a rising trend amongst newly engaged couples, and using a favorite engagement photo as the backdrop to a wedding invitation is a beautiful choice. A photo can make each guest feel like they are an important part of this special time, as the personal look creates an intimate feel.

5. Wedding Suites & Pocket Invitations: The ultimate wedding invitation trend! Creating a wedding suite using pocket invitations creates an almost storybook look. Your wedding invitation will stand out on its own, and all of your enclosure cards will be perfectly stacked one just a bit above the next creating a gorgeous flow and crisp aesthetic. If you are an organized couple – this trend was made for you! Each enclosure card is part of a matching set, and you can choose as little or as many enclosure cards as necessary for your event!Basic Invite Dainty Obsessions
