Wedding invitations are affected by general trends, and there is no reason to think that 2009 will be any different. Some of the trends of 2009 are continuations of the popular ideas of 2008, while other trends are just beginning to gain popularity. When designing your wedding invitations, choose what you like best, and leave behind what you do not. It is important that you design an invitation that reflects the style of you and your future spouse. While you may undoubtedly want to be aware of what is popular and what is not when making your choices, there is no reason to choose something because of its popularity. Instead, use these ideas as starting points when designing your dream wedding invitation.
Think about incorporating your colors into a motif on your wedding invitations and then streamline both of the shades through the rest of the wedding paper. This will create a cohesive appeal. A great example of a formal wedding invitation typically comes in ivory, cream, or white card stock and paired with black or gold font. However, this is your special day, so choose what you want.
