For the second installment in the series, we explore the trends in invitations & seating cards. Wedding Invitations and Escort cards may seem like a minute detail in your wedding planning, but you know what they say about first impressions. Nowadays couples are getting more and more creative with the details in their weddings. Why shouldn’t cards be part of that? Your cards will set the expectations and overall tone for your guests, so have fun and get creative with it!
Your invitation is the first glimpse of your wedding your guests will see. Formal or casual? Indoors or out? Day or night? In addition to the who, what, when, and where; your invitations should reflect your wedding day vision with the colors and styles you choose to use! Some of the emerging trends we’re seeing from our Wonderland couples are:
Greenery and Nature Inspired
Garlands and greenery are no longer just reserved for the table or bouquets, you can style your invitations with this trendy element.
Calligraphy and Handwriting
It doesn’t have to be done by hand to get this look anymore! This style feels more personal yet still elegant.
A clean minimal pattern can be sophisticated, fun, or trendy depending on how you do it. A little design can go a long way for the aesthetic.
You can use these trends to make these invitations your own, and personalize them for your own wedding!
Escort cards are just one example of how the little details in a wedding are really starting to become a big deal. The days of name cards laid out on a table are over, and statement card displays are in.
Whether it is an old fishing boat with a rustic twist like twine and wood clips or an extravagant fairy tale display, It will definitely make it’s way on your guests’ Instagram. And here is the best part of this new trend; you can choose something that doubles as a wedding favor for your guests- like a potted succulent or flower card holder.
One of our favorite escort card ideas we have seen at weddings is a display where your guests replace their seating card with a Polaroid image they can sign! You should have seen all the amusing photos left behind. It’s so much fun for the guests and you get to take home photographs your friends and family left for you!
Next week get ready to drool over our post about quirky desert tables. No longer is the cake the only desert invited to the party!
