Features of Classic Wedding Invitation Design
4 key characteristics of classic wedding invitation design are evident in our Classic I wedding stationery collection, and include:
FORMAL WORDING ETIQUETTE
Classic style is instantly recognizable when a wedding invitation follows more traditional wording. While etiquette is ever evolving, choosing a traditional format remains a timeless choice.
NEUTRAL COLOR PALETTES
Classic wedding invitations tend to use color with more restraint, but neutral doesn’t mean boring. Put a twist on classic color palettes with embellishments that pop or add on-trend shimmer like we’ve done here in ‘Regal‘ with layers and linings in anthracite and gold.
Classic typography is usually centered and symmetrical, favoring balance, as well as serif and script-style typefaces.This classic Save-the-Date from ‘Unity‘ beautifully highlights the stunning quality of a classic typeface engraved in ecru on black paper.
MINIMAL PATTERN & ARTWORK
Without overt illustration and artwork, classic design can still convey a theme through well-placed motifs and minimal pattern. In ‘Maritime‘, the sophisticated tone of a classic coastal wedding is evident from an understated yet elegant engraved shell motif as well as the use of navy and gold.
