wedding invitations for every personality

You’ve already chosen a venue, found your dress and decided on a color scheme. Phew! Next up? Bringing these style elements together for another important decision: the wedding invitation. Beyond letting everyone know those crucial details (you know, like when and where to show up), your stationery also sets the tone for your wedding and reflects how you see yourselves as a couple. So why not make it your own? With so many options, like paper stock, shape, fonts, design, color and envelope lining—not to mention the wording—you might feel overwhelmed. Luckily, whether you’re going for a modern, traditional, romantic or glamorous aesthetic or something in between, David’s Bridal has an invitation to match. (And they even have Invitation Specialists on hand who can answer any design or etiquette questions.) Below, we break down the hallmarks of each style and picked a few of our favorites. Read on to get inspired.

  1. modern wedding invitations

    If you like to think outside the box, you’ll want an invitation that’s as much of a standout as you are. Consider a contemporary design that features bold typefaces and graphic elements. Look for unexpected formats too, like an infographic or even a seal-and-send invitation that doubles as the envelope. And while black and white screams modern, you don’t have to stick with a monochrome color scheme. Why not customize the look with a color you’ll use in your wedding décor?

  2. traditional wedding invitations

    Sophisticated and simple, a classic white, ivory or champagne invitation is a timeless choice that signals a beautiful wedding to come. If you like to follow the etiquette rules, this style hits all the right notes, from formal wording in regal script to elegant embossed details. Be sure to choose a heavy card stock for a luxe finish.

  3. romantic wedding invitations

    Going for a boho or ethereal look for your bridal party and décor? Look for elements like handwritten fonts, lacelike details, florals and, of course, pastel pinks in your invitation suite to channel that sweet and feminine vibe. For a slightly more rustic wedding venue, don’t be afraid to mix in earthier details, like a warm wood grain, to ground the look.

  4. glam wedding invitations

    Your wedding is your chance to be in the spotlight, so if you like to be the center of attention, set the tone early with an invitation suite that sparkles and shines. Try a dramatic color scheme like black and gold or smaller hints of glittery and metallic accents to let your guests know you’ll be saying “I do” in style.
