Wedding Aces Bridal Buds

By Anne Chertoff

A number of exciting new wedding invitation details were spotted at designer booths throughout the 2013 National Stationery Show. Brides will continue seeing fashion-inspired lace accents and shimmering gold foil printing on invitations and stationery accessory pieces. Traditional invitation designs got a modern update by mixing two font types, some even resembled handwriting. And whether or not you’re DIYing your wedding invitation, if you like the DIY look you’ll have plenty of Kraft paper invites to choose from. Couples should take note of the back of their invites when selecting theirs. You’ll find that they’re just as detailed as the front with patterned and textured backings. Here’s a look at some of the latest wedding invitation designs arriving in stationery stores later this summer:

LACE ACCENTS

Lace inspiration on a wedding invitation doesn’t have to be limited to a white or ivory pattern, as the Port Jefferson Wedding Suite by Dolce Press shows here. Featuring a purple lace-like pattern on each of the stationery suite’s pieces, the traditional fabric is more modern when shown in a bright hue, and the mixing of serif and sans serif fonts only adds to the whimsical look and feel.
