Every invitation design will fall into a style category or combine from many different blending styles. Staying true to a particular style, especially if the couple is having a themed wedding, or loves a particular period or genre, can be a great way of giving your invitation project a strong focus.
In this article, I’ll give you 3 top styles for invitation design styles, using some gorgeous templates as examples. Read this post and collect inspiration to create your style own!
These are just a few of the design styles that use well for wedding invitations, and the qualities that each image style brings to the design…
Traditional and Elegant:
This style is classic, timeless, and appropriate for both formal and informal weddings. You won’t risk offending any older members of the wedding party with this beautiful, tasteful style choice. Achieve the look of a traditional wedding invitation with script fonts, floral borders, and dainty colors.
Another evergreen old-school style, but one that gives off a stronger vintage vibe, which can feel hip and on-trend. An Art Deco invitation style brings a lovely, symmetrical quality to your designs, like in the invitation example below, and adds a distinctly glamorous edge with lavish geometric designs and luxe colors, like gold, silver, and jet black. You might want to allow for metallic foiling if you go with an Art Deco look.
This style borrows from 1950s design, but gives it a hip twist, making it look very relevant and “now”. Pastel colors, vintage-inspired graphics, and fonts bringing a fun, informal twist to this wedding invitation.
Choosing a style is a great place to get started with your designs. Even if you start out traditional, and add a twist of Art Deco with a 1920s-inspired font, mixing some of the main style genres will give your invitations an instantly recognizable and distinctive character.
