Papier tells us what’s trending in the world of wedding invitations
Save the date cards, RSVPs, thank you notes, and the invitations – it can all be so overwhelming trying to decide what theme or colours you want when it comes to your wedding stationery! And wording? That’s a whole new ballgame! But don’t panic: LENZO has got you covered (don’t we always?) with the latest wedding stationery trends for you.
Once you’ve nailed your wedding stationery, all the rest of your decisions will come easily. This is because your stationery generally dictates your elementals, from your overall colour palette to setting the tone of what your guests can expect on the Big Day and even your chosen venue. So, don’t think about who to invite and where to seat them: that all comes later! Right now, you need to check out the hottest wedding stationery trends in Australia, as told to us by stationery superstars Papier.
Font stationery trends
Papier told us, “Calligraphy is a firm favourite when it comes to invitations, but it really comes into its own on wedding name place cards when paired with chic, monochrome table displays. Special shout out goes to design studio À L’aise - the maestros with a nib and ink - who create one of our best-selling styles: calligraphy wedding menus and name cards.”
Design stationery trends
Papier says: “Florals which are bursting at the borders with traditional British blooms and butterflies are popular for 2018 in keeping with an English country garden. We imagine them fluttering across tables on delightful menus and place names.
We’ve also noticed a trend for quirky vintage ephemera and a nostalgic nod to motifs from childhood such as the whimsical and magical characters from ‘Alice in Wonderland’ or ‘Beauty and the Beast.’
At LENZO, we’re always up for a Mad Hatter-themed bridal shower, but we LOVE the idea of using Disney characters in a wedding invitation – how unique!
Colour theme stationery trends
Papier tells us, “Whether you’re celebrating in a marquee on the coast or heading to the Tuscan hills for a summer wedding, you’ve got a whole array of bright new possibilities when it comes to your wedding invitations.
Blush pastel is romantic and always pretty, and come dusk, the soft tones complement the golden light of the sun setting."
"We are also seeing lots of yellow – possibly inspired by destination weddings – but couples are embracing the bright yellow hues of Calabrian lemons. This is refreshingly fun wherever you are!"

"For winter, you might be looking towards a darker spectrum of colours - team monochrome with a flash of gold for a look which is sophisticated and glamorous."
