The fun of wedding design is certainly in details. These moments will help you realize your dream wedding. Your wedding invitation is the first thing your guests see of your celebration.
Do you feel boho for your big day? You’ll need paper products that reflect your style. There are many stylish ways to express what can seem like a broad aesthetic. You can choose to marry in the desert with a neutral palette or take inspiration from the rise and fall sand dunes. You want something more whimsical? You can choose brightly-hued watercolor stationery, or feather motifs.
Line envelopes with Something Unexpected
Boho style is all about natural texture, so your envelope liner can be a great place to show your guests a little bit of it. A neutral-colored grasscloth looks great with a desert-inspired palette.
Let the Pattern speak for itself
When used in a complex pattern, a single shade can be all that is needed. In this etched design, a tranquil sage creates a beachy, boho vibe.
Watercolors are a WOW!
A beautiful watercolor invitation suite will mimic the changing colors of the sky. Keep your lettering in lowercase and choose a font which resembles handwriting to increase the carefree feeling.
Play with feathers
Feathers can be used as a design motif, or as a full-on three-dimensional accent. They are a fun addition to any boho-leaning stationery collection. For a sophisticated look, keep your plumage in neutral colors.
All Colors are Acceptable
A more formal invitation may stick to a specific color palette, but you can better capture the boho vibe of your wedding by broadening your palette. You’ll end up with a charming, playful suite if you let each insert choose its own happy color.
Mimic the Desert
A boho wedding invitation is complete with the natural, unadorned slopes of desert dunes. The suite style is brightly colored and paired with modern Acrylic. It sets the tone for the celebrations to come.
Deckled Edges are the best option
This suite’s rougher and more natural cut feels more handmade than a straight line. This style is great for weddings that are historic or boho-influenced.
Find Inspiration in Unexpected Places
Katrina Oluremi Bello Debela, Samson Mazengia Debela and Samson Mazengia Debela used the 1968 Olympics as their Mexico City Wedding inspiration. The couple chose a retro font for their wedding stationery. This font is a great choice when it’s paired with bold photography.
Add leather accents
You want to give your stationery a luxurious touch without making it too formal. Textured leather is a great option. The stationery suite was used for a Texas wedding. All of the enclosure cards were sent in a hand-punched, leather envelope. This could be used later as a keepsake holder or as a clutch for a night out. The custom bandana Save-the-date is another boho-leaning idea you can steal from this suite.
Try Different Shapes
Pre-designed wedding invites tend to be rectangular in shape. Square and circular stationery are a more fun option that feels professional but still looks great. When done in muted brights, the not-too-stuffy-but-not-too-casual design is perfect for a cocktail attire event.
