2021 is the year of intention for modern couples. With the rise of micro weddings, intimacy is becoming more important than formality. Weddings are no longer strictly black-tie events hosted by the parents of the couple. Instead, many couples are choosing to host smaller, more personalized events.
When you have a smaller wedding, there is more opportunity to create truly memorable details for your wedding day. Your wedding invitations are no exception! They are your guests’ first impression of your event and an exciting sneak preview of what’s to come.
Many couples who are looking for personalized wedding details are choosing to design custom wedding invitation suites. Working one-on-one with a wedding invitation designer allows you to infuse your creativity and personality into the wedding planning process. You get to create wedding details with great sentimental value that you can cherish for years to come!
How do you know what wedding invitation designer is right for you?
As a wedding invitation designer myself, I would say first you need to know what style of invitations you are looking for. Many modern couples are leaning towards minimalist, elegant designs with details that showcase their unique love story.
Ask invitation designers about their personal style before choosing the one that is right for you. The best results will come from an invitation designer whose personal style compliments your own!
DesigningLove’s style is modern elegance. I use simple details that create a stunning impact and allow the beauty of minimalism to make your invitations shine.
If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, here are 5 modern wedding invitation trends to get your creative juices flowing!
Minimal wedding invitations are not just white invitations with black text anymore. Simple lines, classic serif fonts, and plenty of blank space are all minimalist design elements stealing the hearts of modern couples this year.
If you’re looking for a simple yet luxurious feel for your wedding, modern minimalism is the way to go. An invitation designer can get to know your personal style and make suggestions that will fit both your desires and the minimalist style. The possibilities are endless!

Take a look at the gallery or Pinterest to gather inspiration for your modern minimalist invitation design. You can show these to your invitation designer when it’s time to start the process!
Weddings produce a lot of waste. Sustainable wedding invitation paper options are a priority for couples looking to reduce their carbon footprint. Plant-based and recycled paper can reduce environmental impact. You can even get your invitations printed on seed paper, which you can literally plant in the ground!
Opting for digital invitations is a great way to reduce the impact of your wedding. Many couples are using wedding websites to share important wedding information and registry details. You can go completely digital and send your invitations via email or text message, or use a combination of print and digital options.

After the design process is complete, look for printing services that use recycled, plant-based, or seed paper. You can also design your own wedding website!
3. Multiple Textures
This year, couples are choosing to play with texture instead of using traditional flat invitations. Wax seals, leather, vellum, and acrylic are popular textures modern couples are using to add depth to their wedding invitation suites. These design elements pair well with minimal wedding invitations.
Once your invitation design is set, you can use a variety of textures. Mix and match textures to create wedding invitations that are both visually and tactically appealing!

Ensure you have a digital version of your invitation design with the ability to resize it. With a custom invitation design from DesigningLove, you can create a unique wedding invitation suite easily. Your digital design can easily be transferred to many textures.
4. Casual Language
It is no longer custom for parents to pay for and host weddings. Couples are choosing to make their weddings their own, and they’re getting rid of traditional invitation language.
Everywhere from RSVP cards to the invitations themselves, couples are using casual language to share their wedding details with guests. There is no right or wrong way to address your wedding invitations. Do what feels right to you!

Think about meaningful phrases you could use in your invitation language. Song lyrics, inside jokes, and puns based on your names are great ways to add humor and create casual and inviting language.
5. Custom Personalization
Couples are more invested than ever in creating one-of-a-kind wedding details. Custom graphics, illustrations, and wedding monograms are used to create such details.
Custom wedding monograms are a wonderful way to create a graphic unique to you and your partner. You can use a wedding monogram on your invitation suite and other details, including signage and wedding stationery.
Modern wedding monograms combine your initials in a simple yet profound way. DesigningLove provides monogram design services to fit your needs, so you can create a wedding monogram that reflects your personality.
