The holiday season is finally upon us and you know what that means; we are heading straight into engagement season! As the new year approaches, we are reflecting on 2019 and looking forward to the stationery trends of 2020.
We’ve compiled our predictions of what our brides and grooms will love in 2020!
1. Bright, bold colors
2019 was the year of dusty blues and gray tones. While we are still loving these muted hues, we have seen a huge uptick in couples choosing bright tones for a pop of color. Whether it be hot pink edge painting or bold yellow watercolor flowers, we’re predicting that wedding stationery will becoming a lot more colorful in 2020!
2. Custom artwork
Wedding stationery has become a reflection of the couple themselves. Couples are looking for personal elements that really showcase their personalities. Many of our recent clients have opted for custom artwork of their dogs, their wedding venues, or maps of the cities where they are being married. The possibilities are endless!
3. Unexpected signage
One of our favorite weddings this year featured two llamas. Yes, you read that right, llamas at a wedding. For this project, we included a sign outlining the llama-petting etiquette. As couples are using their weddings to showcase their personalities, we are making more and more creative signage!
4. Unique escort cards and place cards
From peaches, tequila shots, or shimmery agate slices, couples are choosing to be more creative with letting their guests know where to sit. We’re predicting that escort card and place cards will become even more unique in 2020.
5. Wax seals
Wax seals have made a huge comeback! While 2019 was full of wax seals, we expect to see even more in 2020. Wax seal designs span from custom monograms to leaf or flower elements. Couples will want their wax seals to be used in less traditional ways as well, like in seating chart displays or atop their wedding day programs.
Now that you've had a glimpse into what's telling for the new year, let your imagination go wild. And when you need help on streamlining your design, we're here for you!
