Modern Invitation – Breaking Traditions

Wedding Invitations and Delivery

Wedding invitations go out to guests in envelopes right? Maybe in the old world but in the new world, expect the unexpected. Some modern couples are having puzzles made of their wedding invitations, injecting some fun into the formalities. By designing and creating your own wedding invitations using invitation paper from Paper Warehouse your specifications can then be placed in intricate, hand-painted bottles with sand and shells or sparkles and confetti, thrilling all you invite.

Environmentally Friendly Invitations

With the focus on global warming and other environmental concerns, couples are trying to do their part and selecting recycled paper for their wedding invitations. Whilst recycled invitation papers may not be quite as white as others, considered coloured recycled invitation papers. Trendy textured recycled invitation papers are a great alternative for beach and outdoor wedding invitations. Red Carpet Glamour

Decadent Decorations

Gone are the days of decorating your wedding invitations with ribbon alone – the HOT trend for wedding invitations is glamour and what better way to continue that theme through to your wedding invitations is with exotic lace, silver charms and clasps, exquisite beads and anything else that oozes 'bling'. And for the ultimate in glamour, you just can't go past getting the expertly engraved invitation to provide the perfect finishing touch.


Monochromatic invitation paper is IN! Whilst whites and ivories are a classic choice and will remain popular for traditional wedding invitations, modern couples are combining three unlikely shades or hues of a single invitation paper together to add a contemporary look to their wedding invitations.

Seasonally inspired colour themes such as pinks, lavenders and pastel greens will never go out of fashion, however if you really want to make a modern statement with your wedding invitation paper, consider a trendy colour medley of plum and tangerine, navy and lime, fuchsia and orange, deep Merlot and moss green, chocolate brown and taupe or even the new jewel tone trends of rich purples, golds, oranges and reds as your wedding invitation paper.

Unusual Shaped Invitations

Whether it is a formal or traditional wedding invitation, today's couple are looking for something different. Round, bi-fold or fold-out cards are becoming popular choices amongst brides and grooms this year. And with the growing popularity of destination weddings, couples are really using their creative juices, sending out wedding invitations that reflect their exotic destination; a textured sandy beach invitation for a tropical beach wedding or an Eiffel Tower for a Parisian wedding.

Wedding Invitation Artwork & Design

For truly unique, stylish and inspirational wedding invitations, consider working with a graphic designer to create the ultimate one-of-a-kind wedding invitation that stands out from the rest and captures your personal style.

URLs on Invitations

One fast growing trend in wedding invitations is couples placing their engagement photos on wedding websites and ways to RSVP online and even putting together their own wedding website featuring pictures of themselves and details about their wedding. When they send out their wedding invitations they include the URL to their wedding page so guests can easily find it.

Rain Cards

As more and more couples are opting to take advantage of Australia's amazing alfresco climate and selecting outdoor settings, such as beaches and public gardens, it's important to have a backup plan just in case it rains. A growing wedding invitation trend is to include rain cards to advise guests where the ceremony and/or reception will be held in case of bad weather, including a contact telephone number that guests can call to find out whether or not the wedding has been moved to the alternative location.

Wedding Invites And…

Wedding Invitations and Paper

Forget the plain wedding invitation cardstock! Contemporary wedding invitation designers feature invitation papers of all types and textures. Beautiful embossing, felt textures, silk threads, chiffons, foiled patterns, even satin and velvet fabrics are used with great effect. Look at specialised handmade invitation paper with all kinds of exquisite detail. This could be anything from rose petals to twine, or chilli peppers to coffee, embedded in the paper fibre. Paper Warehouse has an amazing range of wedding invitation paper- patterned paper, metallic paper, translucent paper and handmade paper with floral and metal embedding for stunning and stylish wedding invitations, thank you cards and reception place cards.

Wedding Invitations and Colour

Old world wedding invitations are ivory, white or ecru but new world versions are every colour of the rainbow. Silver and gold are frequently used as the theme colours for contemporary designs but pink, aqua and lavender are gaining in popularity too. Coloured inks are also en vogue, with brown ink on pink paper the favourite for wedding invitations at present. Choose the invitation paper colour to tie in with your personalised theme.

Wedding Invitations and Shape

Traditional wedding invitations are often 5" square but a tall, vertical rectangle is currently the most popular shape for wedding invitations.

Wedding Invitations and Fonts

Nowadays, you're no longer restricted to the old-fashioned, ornate, cursive fonts for wedding invitations (though they do look extremely elegant). Modern clean font lines suit modern wedding invitations but whatever font you choose, make sure you limit it to two types only on your wedding invitation.

Wedding Invitations and Wording

Whilst some couples continue to use traditional wedding invitation wording, many are taking the liberty of personalising their text with the addition of a poem or a romantic quote.
