42. A Card In Shades Of Sweet Pink

Let us just say, 'sweet pink' is a shade we don't often talk about. It falls under the pastel category but is slightly more muted and warm to be recognised as a mainstream pastel colour. Nevertheless, we never knew this gorgeous colour could work so well for invitations!

51. Tear Drop Shaped Mini Card

52. Minimal Peony Illustration Invite

Not sure why, but peonies and weddings go hand in hand. Many couples who choose flowers for their wedding invites and stationaries go for peonies. And they're rightful to choose this gorgeous flower, after all, it symbolises good fortune and happy marriage. 

53. Digital Illustrated Invite That Is Bright & Colourful

Mixing quirky and funny couple caricatures with the traditional aesthetics of a wedding is all the rage these days. Every design tries to tell a story and is customized as per the couple's tastes and desires. And this funky and off-beat invitation is just an example of that.

54. Integrate Your Proposal Story In A Save the Date

Another exciting trend we've seen these past couple of months is couples incorporating elements of their proposal into their save the date invites! It's just another way of making your invite more personalised and festive.

55. Hand Painted Wedding Invites

Hand-painted invites are special because one look at them and you know that a lot of effort has gone into the making of these invites. It also happens to be special because again, you have the liberty to get whatever you want to get painted on the invites. These are quite new and quite popular nowadays. We say you should think of getting these for your big day!

57. Peacock & Falling Flowers Inspired Wedding Invitation

One thing we're loving this wedding season is the embrace of solid colours as backgrounds instead of just white. This golden yellow-toned invite with falling flowers and peacock designs is a true ode to Indian weddings and traditions. 

58. Arabesque Themed Wedding Invite

Arabesque is a form of artistic decoration consisting of 'surface decorations based on rhythmic linear patterns of scrolling and interlacing foliage, tendrils. Now, we often see this in middle eastern art forms, but incorporating this art into a wedding invite is unique and a perfect way to let your guests have a glimpse into what's about to come!

59. Use a Rustic Palette

A violet and copper palette is rustic and elegant when combined with wax seals and silk ribbon. Deckle-edge invitations and calligraphy wedding envelopes really make this suite stand out.

60. Miniature Art Invite

We love it when designers and couples get creative with their wedding invitations. Miniature art has been an integral part of our history for ages. And seeing that translated onto a wedding invitation invokes royal aesthetics and also gives us an idea of what kind of wedding to expect. 

61. A Custom Letter Style Wedding Invite

Script fonts have a formal feeling and are grounded in traditional styling. Many have lots of flourishes—the swooshes and extras around each letterform—which add to the ornate styling. And it's evident from not just the elaborate invitation writing but also the embossing detail that this invite is elegant and formal without being over the top.

Conclusion

When it comes to wedding invitations, you may want to keep with tradition and find something classic—but sometimes those designs can feel stuffy and old-fashioned. At the same time, many consider going outside the box with chic, streamlined invites that reflect your personality as a modern couple. So whether you love the traditional cultural aesthetic, or love something a bit more modern, there is a style that matches your aesthetics. Just make sure you and your wedding invitation designer are on the same page in terms of the ideas and aesthetics and you're good to go!
