Gold foil wedding invitations
Devon Jarvis

A total resurgence of foil has us feeling fancy. This glitzy trend in paper comes in a myriad of metallics (gold, silver and rose gold are among our faves). We like to think of foil as a shiny neutral -- pair it with color or let it stand on its own for a bold, lustrous effect. Get inspired by a few of our favorite wedding suites.

Dazzling Deco Gold Foil

For a luxurious style, select an ornate design in a classic color palette. This sophisticated suite has an art-deco vibe with its simple pattern. A save-the-date sets the tone for a black-tie affair with gold stamping and black letterpress, while the invitation repeats the pattern in an elegant blind deboss. Gold calligraphy adds a touch of glamour. Oberon save-the-date, from $785 for 100, invitation, from $1,465 for 100, Jessica Tierney, BellaFigura.com

Bohemian-Inspired Gold Foil

If you're hosting a more casual celebration, start with a pastel palette, choose an illustration and finish with a dusting of foil. Relaxed calligraphy gives this invitation a breezy but polished feel. Coordinated enclosure cards and thank-you notes complete the suite. Dipped Feathers invitation, from $260 for 100, lined envelope with printed guest name, $68 for 100, coordinating card, from $2 each, Pistols, Minted.com

Contemporary Rose Gold Foil

If you're saying "I do" in a gallery or modern loft space, opt for a striking but uncomplicated design. Graphic text in rose gold foil elevates this modern look. A square enclosure card adds dimension to the suite, without adding extra money to your postage. Gramercy invitation, reply card and enclosure, $1,875 for 100, FoiledInvitations.com

Watercolor and Gold Foil

For a totally personalized day, start with your wedding paper. A photo save-the-date is a great way to share your engagement photos, and the pop of foil makes it extra-special. Choose a logo or motif you can carry out in big (the program) and small (hello, cute coasters) details throughout your wedding. This simple, intertwined, two-letter monogram anchors the entire wedding suite, from invitation sleeve to menu. The digitally printed watercolor pattern evokes romance, while custom calligraphy and gold foil give each element a luxe and elegant feel. Barnesly invitation, sleeve, reply card and envelope, from $3,440 for 100, Amy Graham Stigler, SmockPaper.com

Classic Gold Foil

Put a twist on a classic by adding a pop of color and a dynamic envelope liner (with a coordinating belly band!) to your wedding suite. Vintage-inspired calligraphy and graphically designed details give this invite a little edge. A blush envelope and black-and-gold band are unexpected but polished. Invitation, reply card, enclosure, belly band and envelope, $1,750 for 100, PaperBloomStudio.com
