From the first invitation received, to the welcome sign at your venue entrance, and the thank you cards to bring everything full circle, your wedding stationery is with you at every step of the wedding process. So in general, the advice 'pick something timeless', something that represents you and your partner, is the best advice you can receive. However, sometimes keeping up to date with some recent trends can ignite new creativity, bring new ideas to mind and help you create something truly special. In this article, we cover a few of the most notable wedding stationery trends of 2024, helping you to embrace a newfound sense of imagination, personalisation, and attention to detail like never before.

The aesthetic of 2024

In this dynamic year, wedding stationery designs are experiencing a rejuvenation. And that's because visuals are more important today than ever. The branding we experience is hotter than ever before, the interiors we admire, the attention to detail we witness and the whole world of design is experiencing amazing shifts that are making our world even more beautiful and exciting!

So, infused with new shapes, vibrant colour palettes, and charming illustrations, wedding stationery in 2024 is bursting with potential.

If you're getting married this year, your invitations and stationery should become a canvas upon which to tell your love story. Embellished with elements like florals, bows, and sophisticated finishing touches, or simply dressed in minimalism, this year brings all kinds of opportunity. 

Wedding stationery trends of 2024

Whether planning an extravagant celebration or opting for an intimate affair this year, the 2024 wedding stationery trends cater to every taste and preference. Let's take a look at the emerging world of wedding stationery and start sketching out your dream wedding brand and aesthetic. 

1. Storytelling 

If you're familiar with the world of branding or marketing, you'll be familiar with the idea of storytelling. And even if you're not, this is super easy to understand. 

Just as any business or organisation might have a brand, weddings are increasingly adopting the idea of branding in order to create their dream events and share their stories.

From the way you word your invites and signage (from formal to informal, witty or romantic), to the colours you choose and the fonts you display, everything you decide when it comes to your wedding stationery helps to share your personality and wedding 'brand' and style. 

In 2024, storytelling has become an even bigger part of the wedding planning process, with customers wanting to share their story and represent their relationships in creative ways. Whether it's including bespoke maps and illustrations, including hand drawn styles, sketches of the venue, or simply using comical text, couples are getting stuck into the storytelling element of their big days. 

After all, your wedding will be a story one day. So why not make it one you're proud to show and tell?


2. Wavy edge cut 

In 2024, the wavy cut edge has emerged as a highly sought-after design element in wedding stationery, captivating couples and designers alike with its whimsical and romantic appeal.

This unique and artistic edge treatment has gained popularity as a way to add a touch of elegance to wedding invitations, whilst it also adds a big dose of playfulness, arguably avoiding a wedding that could otherwise be 'too stiff'. Yes, really - it can do all that!

Often paired with fun colours, such as pastels or even brighter tones, the wavy edge really shines when brought to the forefront of tour event.

Truly popping at your venue - whatever style it might be - a wavy edge sign or card creates a visually stunning effect. Its clean curly lines have really become a fun way to infuse invitations and stationery with a sense of individuality and charm.


3. Bright colours 

In the realm of wedding trends, one thing is abundantly clear: bold colours are stealing the spotlight this year! Say goodbye to muted tones and washed-out pastels, as 2024 is all about vibrant combinations and eye-catching hues that demand attention.

Picture luxurious mixes of lilac, yellow, and coral intertwining in glorious harmony. Imagine a wedding adorned with the striking presence of Barbie bold pink, making a bold and unapologetic statement of love. And let's not forget the invigorating presence of sunshine yellows, infusing every element of the celebration with a radiant energy that simply cannot be ignored.

This year, couples are embracing the notion of planning a wedding that will be remembered forever. They are not afraid to step outside the boundaries of conventionality and embrace the power of colour to leave a lasting impression on their guests.

So, if you're envisioning a wedding celebration that breaks free from the ordinary, that resonates with vibrancy and vivacity, then 2024 is your year to shine. Time to embrace the brilliance of bold colours!

4. Fun fonts 

With colour discussed, and cuts covered, it's time to talk about fonts. In the wonderful world of wedding stationery, fonts play a vital role in setting the tone and creating a unique visual identity for the celebration.

But this year, the importance of fun and playful fonts has taken centre stage, as couples seek to infuse their wedding stationery with personality, excitement, and a touch of whimsy.

Gone are the days of traditional and formal fonts dominating wedding invitations (although may we add that there is plenty of space for minimalism). In 2024, couples are embracing all kinds of fun fonts that add a lighthearted and joyful element to their stationery. Ranging from bubbly and rounded scripts to quirky and hand-drawn lettering styles, it's all about reflecting the couple's personality and the overall vibe of their wedding.

Because the truth is that fun fonts inject a sense of playfulness into wedding stationery, able to convey a couple's sense of humour, their love for adventure, or their relaxed nature.

It is worth noting, that clear legibility should always be a priority in your wedding stationery, as guests need to easily understand the information conveyed in the invitations. But with fun fonts used sparingly and strategically, there's plenty of space for creativity! 

5. Minimalist 

It's hard to say whether the minimalist look will ever go out of style, because quite simply it is timeless. So in 2024, many couples are still opting for simple styles which offer a sense of understated impact. We can't blame them.

This year, couples are continuing to embrace a less-is-more mindset to achieve an ultra-chic aesthetic for their weddings. And so minimalist wedding stationery focuses on simplified typography, neutral colours, and an "only the essentials" approach.

While black and white is a popular choice (we talk more about this later), modified neutral palettes with silver, gold, grey, or dark green can also be used to achieve this clean, sharp look.

Not exactly sure what to look out for if you're interested in a minimalist set of wedding stationery? The minimalist style favours clean lines, geometric shapes, and touches of marble or metallic. And of course, there's often not much in the way of illustration of decoration.

In 2024, by opting for chic minimalism in your stationery, you can create a crisp, classic, and sophisticated look that sets the tone for a wedding celebration which never goes out of style.

6. Chic monochrome

Similar to minimalist stationery, chic monochrome stationery is standing strong and even making a big come back in 2024, emerging as a popular and timeless choice for couples. It's amazing how striking simplicity - and the power of a single colour palette - can be!

Monochrome wedding stationery revolves around a single colour, typically black or white, creating a cohesive and visually striking ensemble. The use of a monochromatic palette allows for a clean and minimalist design, while still making a strong and impactful statement. Considering a sophisticated and glamorous theme at your wedding? This is one surefire way to achieve it.

And the great thing is, monochrome wedding stationery is versatile. Whether opting for sleek black or pristine white, couples can tailor the design to match their desired aesthetic. Black monochrome stationery exudes sophistication, adding a touch of drama and elegance to the overall wedding theme. On the other hand, white monochrome stationery radiates purity and timelessness, creating an ethereal and dreamy atmosphere. 

Whether embracing the sophistication of black or the ethereal beauty of white, monochrome designs offer a clean and visually striking aesthetic that sets the tone for a stylish wedding celebration no one will forget.
