Lace and Damask
Bridal dress trends for 2014 have also influenced stationery designs using classic materials and fabrics that are reminiscent of the Roaring Twenties glam style. Lace is a classic material and design that always been synonymous with weddings. Rather than overindulging in this trend, many are electing for a more subtle homage to lace with hints of lace surrounding the invitation. Damask is also another classic look that has become increasingly popular for those who want a traditional look with a modern edge.
Floral designs are timeless like lace and invitation designs are now including your favorite flower within the design. It’s one of those themes that never goes out of fashion and seems to be reinvented each season. Think romantic florals, big blooms and shabby chic patterns for the coming year. Pick a flower, pick a range and run with it. You can incorporate florals into other themes, too, like vintage, retro, rustic, to thoroughly modern. The only limit with a floral design is your own imagination!
The vintage wedding trends is still going strong! It’s no surprise – there’s just something that feels so romantic and nostalgic with this theme. In stationery design, it is a mix of lace, pearls and brooches that defines vintage for the upper class. No more rustic and country, we are talking vintage glamour! In terms of design elements, think monochrome, gold, brooches, pearls and satin ribbons.
