Top 5 | Trends

2015 is going to be another beautiful year in wedding & event stationery. Are you dying to know what’s in store for this year? Fret not! We have the top 5 trends just for you.

1. Picasso Baby

Last year was all about hand-drawn detailed illustrations; this year the trend grows and adding massive brush strokes! From bold beautiful colours to soft watercolour designs. This is a beautiful way to show off your artistic side!

2. A Cut Above 

Who says your invitation has to be square or rectangle? Make your guest do a double take with a hexagon, octagon, even a circle invitation (or day of stationery – check out these fab menus). Anything is possible with custom die cuts!

3. A Touch Of Glamour 

Gold, rose gold, silver, and every color of the rainbow is being foiled into beautiful invitations (and day of stationery)! We’re seeing a rise of couples looking for luxury treatments on their invitation. From foils to letterpress, embossing, and self-designs – anything that adds a touch of glamour!

4. The Ultimate Luxury 

Hard Cover invitations is a traditional trend slowly popping up this year. Although it ups your postage, it’s the ultimate luxury in stationery!

5. Mr. & Mrs. West’s Garden 

Last but not least, my personal favorite: big floral designs! Since the epic floral wall at Mr. and Mrs. West’s wedding, all we want is floral motif everywhere! Now this is not your Grandma’s floral wallpaper (unless that’s what you’re into, love all our quirky brides), we’re talking about epic self-designs, white on white, bold colours or blush tones designed as peonies, roses and more. It’s a beautiful trend that makes you feel like you’re in a beautiful French Garden!

Wedding Vibes

And we’re back with that big news I promised! If you know me on a personal level, you know that 2015 is a pretty big year for me. This year, I’m not only catering to my clients but being a bride myself! Yes, you heard right – Vibrance Designs is having it’s first in-house wedding! It’s definitely an exciting year as I get to experiment and play with papers, structures and treatments in ways I have not yet had the opportunity to. At the same time – the pressure is on!!! Everyone is always asking with excitement what I have planned for my own invitations and it’s time I let you in on a little secret… I have NO clue what to do! At this point I might just text everyone a time and location (even just typing that out made me cringe – paper invitations people, always!)

Here’s the thing, my brides and grooms inspire my designs. I listen to them talk, hear what they want and get to know them on a personal level. From there, I magically come up with a concept. I say magic because sometimes I don’t even know how it happens. I tell couples to throw out as many ideas as possible and they’ll often say, “You don’t have to use it all, it might get to busy” but somehow it comes together perfectly. No formula, or special secret, just magic. 

For my invitation… what do I want? I’m not sure. What I do know is I feel a tiny bit bad for my fiancée, because I keep asking him what he wants. See men (or at least my man) just wants to get married, eat good food, drink a lot and throw an epic party (although I’m always surprised to when he has opinions about certain things but that’s for another post). I’m honestly not sure how or where to get my direction and inspiration from. We have sent out the Save The Dates and Engagement Party Invitations (preview coming soon) and both have been with the help of my fiancé even though he doesn’t know it. You see, both times I was on the phone with him doodling and complaining about not knowing what to do and he would throw out the most RANDOM ideas, and somehow got the wheels turning. To my surprise my sketches became my save the date and engagement invitation! So to answer your question, no I don’t know what I’m doing for my own wedding invitation, but I can promise I won’t let you, my clients, friends, family and followers down!
