  1. Statement-Making Fonts

    Forget patterns and motifs -- this trend is all about pretty penmanship. Make a statement with flourished fonts and ornate calligraphy.

  3. Colored Foils

    Last season, we saw a ton of gold and silver foil printing, and this season, designers embraced the trend again -- this time in rich colors like magenta and even olive green like this suite.

  4. Embossed Designs

    Embossing (indented or raised designs) creates a beautiful, tactile pattern that's delicate and stylish at the same time. We saw it all over the place, and it's perfect for the traditional bride who's looking for a subtle, modern touch.

  5. Neon Accents

    Neon was all over the ready-to-wear runways, and it's made its way into stationery too. We love how this fun orange invite is bright without being too daring.
