It's magic. From the day we are born and until the end of time, touch is a sensation we crave and can't live without-- and in love, touch brings all the feels.
The wedding invitation is the first visual introduction to you as a couple. It showcases your personality, your look, your love. Adding texture to your invitation is the perfect way to create visual interest, and feature the style and mood that you're looking to convey. It's the introduction to your story.
These are the trends of texture and touch that are getting all the good feels:
Add Dimension Ribbons & Wraps
Embellish your bold with some natural jute twine, soft felt ribbon, or multi-tone bakers twine. AND the number one trend in ribbons right now? Hand-dyed silk ribbon. (Everyone is loving the silk!) This luxurious material has a natural frayed edge that offers a whimsical, yet sophisticated element, that’s sure to leave your guests legitimately petting their invite. Our favorites are from Silk and Willow and From From Chic!
For The Bold & The Beautiful: Sparkle!
Speaking of dynamite, sparkle and glitter are having their moments. This trend comes in a whole variety of colors and the way it's manufactured it does not leave the mess behind! Win, win!
This simple detail can have a huge impact. Pattern prints are awesome because they can be both custom designed and printed or we can find a pre-designed pattern that fits the mold. The mix and match of color and print can add just enough dimension to your suite, while totally accentuating your style.
The Pocket & Pocket Fold
Another winning combination to add texture and dimension to the suite is the pocket or pocket fold. The invitation gets adhered to the back or inside, and the extra materials get tucked into the pocket. You can choose solid colors or patterns as well as laser cut, and can really act or look almost like a storybook! (The fairytale ending is yours to write!)
Pops of Paper
Thick lustrous paper can offer all the feels for your featured look. You read that right! Raised paper, and "fabric paper." The trend that's really in bloom? Seed paper! It adds beautiful dimension and texture and YES, your guests can plant the paper after the big day-- the seeds will grow flowers and remind your guests of you all season long.
No matter the look you're going for, you want to give your guests the feeling of love! With endless choices from basic to bold, reflecting your personality through texture is the perfect personal touch.
