Wedding Stationery Style Picks for Every Kind of Couple
26 Aug 2021 •10 min read
If there’s one thing that you don’t think about often enough when you’re planning a wedding is just how much stationery is going to be involved! Invitations to engagement parties, wedding showers, save-the-dates, thank you notes—let alone the actual wedding—could run you into the thousands of cards that need to be written, addressed, and sent. (Which, thankfully, can be a little less daunting if you go with a stationery provider that offers free envelope addressing.)
So how do you even begin to pick stationery for all of these events? With so many styles out there, it can be hard to narrow down what you might be looking for. But you definitely want your stationery to express your overall wedding vibe!
That’s why we’ve teamed up with Minted to show you some of our favorite stationery options for eight different wedding styles. Once you understand your dream wedding aesthetic, you can use it to find stationery that suits you—rather than the other way around.
Elegant Wedding Stationery
What better epitomizes elegance than old Hollywood? The “Hepburn” stationery is perfect for all of your elegant wedding needs with the stoic monogram at the top. Though the look may seem simple, the letterpress turns the invitation into a rich textural experience with a look that is quiet yet luxurious.
In This Together
If you’re thinking of having a black-tie wedding, why not have your cards match? We are obsessed with the striking color contrast in the “in this together” design. Add in a dramatic silhouette of the card itself, and we have a true showstopper!
Finally, if you’re looking for a little glitz and glam, check out Minted’s extensive card options made with real foil! We love this “regale” card with the sweeping accents of foil that give your card that extra shine that your big day deserves.
Vintage Wedding Stationery
Art Deco Mood
This stationery is aptly named for the perfect “art deco mood” that it evokes with beautiful styling around the edges and delicate foil accents. It will serve as the perfect introduction to your vintage-themed day!
Minted’s All-In-One invitations are sure to make a big hit—especially ones in this beautiful “Beaded Edge” set with a subtle roaring 20s vibe. We love how the strong geometric pattern is the perfect complement to the calligraphic text.
If you want something that will truly stand out, check out something like the “Grand Natura.” It pairs both celestial and botanical images with a funky vintage text pattern to create something that combines new with old effortlessly.
Modern Wedding Stationery
A modern theme we can’t get enough of is the color-blocking seen in cards like the “Edgewater” option from Minted. The warm mixture of colors and textures adds an inviting backdrop to all of the important details of your day.
Not sure color is really your thing? Play with text instead! This “Element” card pays with shapes to create a twist on classic card styles without losing any of the class.
Pop of Color
If you’re looking for something you can really personalize, check out “Pop of Color” and include a photo of you and your partner. We love the combination of the matte background with the accent of this colorful, geometric design and the option to literally put yourself on the page.
Minimalist Wedding Stationery
We can’t get enough of this slightly off-center look from these “Lydra” cards. The stacked text and strong accent line down the side create a design full of grace and simplicity.
The “Harmonie” design emphasizes what matters most: you! The bolded names are a great way to add depth to a card without any sort of illustration necessary, and you can always change the colors to give it a little extra spark.
Not all simple cards need to be without illustrations, though. The “Outline” card is the perfect compromise with a simple foiled heart and centered text. We love the way it draws attention without being too busy, and it looks perfect on one of Minted’s incredible wedding websites!
Rustic Wedding Stationery
This “Grand Escape” design from Minted’s Painterly collection would be perfect for a winter wedding invitation. The cool tones of the trees and text are perfect for setting up that rustic, outdoorsy feel for your big day.
If you’re looking for a rustic vibe with some modern undertones, try the foil-pressed wood grain look of Minted’s “Barn door” design. This is the perfect invitation for a couple whose wedding style has a hint of urban but an overall emphasis on barnyard chic.
This stunning “Botanical Edge” card is the perfect mix of natural beauty with just a little bit of glam—just like your wedding day! Every color option is equally stunning, and we love the vibrancy of the flowers surrounding your names.
Whimsical Wedding Stationery
We can’t get enough of these delicate flowers in the “Painterly Florals” card. The beautiful sketched look makes this the perfect accompaniment to the whimsical, dreamy wedding you have planned.
For a more subtle floral look, try this “Fields'' design from Minted’s watercolor selection. The pairing of the watercolor strokes and the foil creates a stunningly artistic card with plenty of whimsy and a touch of elegance.
Look at the Stars
This last card compels you to “look at the stars” as it uses celestial designs to create a card fit for a fairytale. The modern font adds the perfect amount of structure to the movement and whimsy of the stars and planets around the border.
Boho Wedding Stationery
This “Autumn Storm” design features an autumnal wreath made up of simple floral elements, perfect for a couple who want to get back to nature with their stationery. We love the subtlety of the wreath, as it lets the shapes of the leaves and flowers speak for themselves.
Yet another pick for the bohemian bride may be “Natural Elegance,” a card that uses watercolors and foiled lines to evoke the endless beauty of nature. The gradience of the card towards the bottom draws the reader in and creates a piece that can truly stand on its own.
If you’re having a beach wedding but aren’t sure how to subtly incorporate the nautical theme into your invitation, try “apogean tide.” It’s simple but powerful, much like the ocean itself, and we love the way it conveys movement.
Alternative Wedding Stationery
For a fun addition to your destination wedding, have your cards get into character with the “Passport” design from Minted. Make your card truly your own by customizing it with all of your wedding details, and make your guests feel like they are truly holding a ticket to paradise.
Feeling like all the glitz and glam aren’t really you? Go back to your roots and make your guests laugh with the “Party Accordingly” card. After all, your wedding should be the party of your lives so might as well let your guests know what to expect!
Finally, if you’re just feeling overwhelmed by all of the design options and are feeling more of a DIY route, select one of Minted’s Photo options like “Modern Bliss” and let the beauty of the card come from you and your love. No one needs anything fancier than you two in love, so let your favorite photo speak for itself.
We hope these ideas from Minted gave you a little sneak peek into all of the options that are out there and which one might be right for you!
