Here at Occasions, we enjoy watching the trends in wedding invitations. Right now, papers pressed with leaves or petals, rifer ribbons, botanical drawings, tropical watercolors, abstract floral sketches, flowers including orchids, lilies, hydrangea, or sunflowers, seashells and butterflies head the top of the list. How neat to have seashells on invitations when the wedding will be at the beach, or perhaps for the couple who met at the beach. For the artistic, an abstraxt floral sketch is perfect.
Trends come and go and they often edge in quietly. “Plain Jane” white or ecru, with formal wording is gradually coming back.
Many invitations depict rich similarity – pearlized white, gilded edged, metallic accents, layered, often vellum over colored flat panels, and many fold-over styles are popular.
Save-the-date announcements are so popular some companies are introducing books showing noting but these informational cards. So there is a style for everyone. Do come in and see for yourself. Occasions is your one stop shop for all your wedding needs.
