Perfect Stationery Picks for the 2021 Pantone Color of the Year

2021 has a lot to make up for after the year we've all had, but at least we're starting off with a bang when it comes to color schemes. This is the first time ever that Pantone has chosen not one but two colors of the year: ultimate gray and illuminating.

The combination of clean grey and bright yellow is a refreshing and cheerful mix, and we can't wait to see how 2021's nearlyweds start incorporating this duo into their "I dos." Of course, when it comes to wedding colors, the first thing to figure out is the stationery.

Whether you're in need of some save-the-dates, traditional invitations, or maybe a postponement notice, we've rounded up some of the best stationery sets that feature both ultimate gray and illuminating to keep your nuptials on-trend for 2021.

1. Vogue Wedding Invitations by Genna Blackburn for Minted

We love the clean, text-focused design of this invitation! The heavy emphasis on yellow combined with the subtle use of gray (rather than plain black text) gives the invite a warm, slightly vintage vibe

2. Collage Wedding Invitations by Ann Gardner for Minted

This collage wedding plays on soft yellows and grays with a heavier focus on shape and texture to create a uniquely modern invitation experience.

3. With Great Joy Wedding Invitations by Up Up Creative for Minted

What color says "joy" better than yellow? Absolutely none, we say! What a perfect use for this clean-cut, modern invitation.

4. Organic Florals Wedding Invitations by Susan Moyal for Minted

For a more classic look, we love how these soft yellow florals play with the grey-green of the leaves to create a gorgeously organic flower scape to showcase the invite text.

5. Off the Page Save the Dates by Amy Payne for Minted

Opting for a full-color background with plain white lettering is a great option for save-the-dates when you know you have fewer details to worry about!

6. Bold Move Save the Dates by Anita Brown for Minted

This simple grey design paired with classic text elements makes for a super contemporary look, and we love the touch of shine around the border of the date! It's all in the details.

7. Plain Handwritten Save the Dates by Phrosne Ras for Minted

Now, we love color and stylish text! But your stationery is also a great place to showcase those gorgeous engagement photos you took! You can keep the colorful and stylish text but we love the full-background photo to put all the focus on you and your soon-to-be spouse.

8. Scrawled Save the Dates by Catherine Culvenor for Minted

Another great photo option! Yellow can be a great option for text on photo backgrounds because it stands out so brightly against most other colors. So be sure to keep the backdrop in mind when you're choosing your colors!

9. Bauhaus Slate Save the Dates by Iveta Angelova for Minted

This is a whole look—using soft grey as the primary color here really makes the gold lines pop, and we are all about that.

10. City Love Save the Date by Poi Velasco for Minted

Framing a photo in color is another great way to incorporate some yellow while still keeping the focus on you and your boo!

11. Arch Save the Dates by Kelly Schmidt for Minted

This save-the-date takes the frame idea and really runs with it! The arched photo and slight overlap of the text really knock this design out of the park.
