Classic Is Back! Elegant Wedding Invitations Are This Wedding Season’s Hot Trend.



You have the date set, the venue is chosen and now your next task is the wedding invitations. The great news is that there are lots of choices when it comes to wedding invitation options. The bad news, there are lots of choices! At Team Wedding, we have made no secret of the fact that our friends at Invitations by Dawn are always one of the first places we recommend brides start their wedding invitation planning process. We talked to them this week to find out what the latest trends in wedding invitations are this year, and we heard loud and clear that this year it is all about elegant wedding invitations!




Ultimately, you can’t just pick the latest trend in invitations and simply go with that. You need to begin by focusing on matching the style of your wedding to the type of invitation you send. If you’re having an elegant event, then you should focus on elegant and high-end invitations. There are also vintage, rustic, art deco, modern, DIY and many other choices too, so don’t box yourself in.

Your wedding invitations and stationary set the stage for your big day and it isn’t just the wedding invitations you need to worry about these days. You’re likely going to need wedding save the dates, unique wedding programs, place cards and much more. The choices can be overwhelming too whether your wedding theme is contemporary, classic, floral or beach.




So this year it is all about elegant invitations. For couples who are planning a traditional wedding, crisp, clean and elegant invitations are the way to go! There is just something timeless and classic about these designs, which is probably why they are so popular in 2014 as people go back to doing things that are a little swoon worthy while staying traditional.

When we talked to our friends at Invitations by Dawn we asked them what they were doing to meet the trends. We were excited to hear that they allow brides to add their own special touches by providing monogramed save the dates and wedding invitations as well as the always classic foil wedding invitations.




At Team Wedding we have our own opinion on classic and elegant wedding invitations, and we’ve always loved letterpress wedding invitations when you are having a very formal wedding! There is just something that screams high-end and luxurious when you receive a cotton paper wedding invitation that is stamped and you open it up. You know this is a wedding you don’t want to miss.




Once you have chosen the elegant invitations you want, you can then ensure that the wording on your invitation matches the tone of your big day. Most people buy these awesome and beautiful invitations for their classic wedding and don’t put much thought into what it should say. Again, the words should correspond with the formality and style of your wedding. From formal to casual, the wording should reflect the formality and tone you’d like to set.

Every wedding invitation should include these elements: host{s}, couple getting married, time, date and location. Be inspired! Choose wording that complements your situation, style and spirit of your wedding. Obviously you can customize most invitations when you choose any reputable provider online, but make sure you check. Not every online provider allows you to customize your wedding invitation wording but Invitations by Dawn does! The last thing you want to do is spend all that money on high end invitations and then not be able to write your personal message.
