Our Modern Luxe wedding invitations are normally shown in a bold royal blue color on our website, so it was quite refreshing to see a recent client change them up and do a pretty pastel purple! The result is modern, but softer, and we absolutely adore it.
The text and monogram are shown in grape and eggplant purple, while the borders and polka dot patterned envelope liner are shown in amethyst purple. The mix of light and dark purple hues adds contrast while keeping the invitation suite within the violet color family.
One thing we absolutely love about our Modern Luxe wedding invitation design is the way the borders look when the suite is assembled. The layered style is really unique and packs a visual punch when your guest open their invitations.
We also thought that this couple’s use of the polka dot envelope liner rather than something bolder such as stripes or chevron really went a long way towards creating a purple wedding invitation package that was more on the romantic and whimsical side.
The color options for this suite really are endless and sometimes seeing something in a different hue can affect your overall opinion of a design. More versions of our Modern Luxe invitation in different colors can be found on our blog, or you can head straight to our website to get started on you order!
I’m really excited about today’s post. Our friends Steve and Jennifer over at Bumblebee Linens shared one of their gorgeous vintage bridal hankies with us and I was thrilled to get to use it in our latest photo shoot! Their wedding handkerchiefs are absolutely gorgeous and the quality is outstanding. Delicate lace embroidery, pretty whites, quality fabric. We’re totally in love.
Decorative handkerchiefs are often used during the ceremony to blot away those emotional tears of joy. Rather than having a plain hankie, something with a delicate, vintage look goes much nicer with the overall look of a wedding. These hankies can also be used as an alternative to standard catering napkins at the reception, giving your event a styled, romantic and vintage feel. We had a great time incorporating them as a decor element when styling our wedding invitation pictures.
Shown above is our Script Elegance wedding invitation. We love the simple and timeless feel of this invitation mixed with the slightly vintage and romantic look of the lace embroidery. We highly recommend mixing texture with design when styling your wedding decor elements.

While the word modern usually brings to mind bright and bold colors, we are absolutely loving this slightly softer yet ultra contemporary peach and pink wedding invitation with modern typography! Don’t be afraid to use a romantic color palette with a modern wedding invitation design. As you can see, the results can be awesome!
Any range of colors can be used on this modern minimalist design with great results. We recently featured this same wedding invitation in shades of blue which is just as fun. When you’re striving for modern, the color choices are endless and you really can’t go wrong.

One thing we take into consideration when designing new wedding invitations is whether the design will stand the test of time. While your wedding invitations should look fresh and contemporary, it’s also important that they still have class decades later. We hold that idea very dear to our hearts when we create our new collections every year, and we think that our Classic Vintage design, shown below really reflects that ideal.
What creates a truly timeless design is a balance of white space, simple colors and classic typefaces. We’ve paired a gothic block font, which has a formal look, with a very classic calligraphy inspired script font. A lot of white space between the bride and groom’s names and the rest of the text creates a focal point. The simple black and white color scheme keeps things simple and the importance is placed on the event at hand.
Some color can be worked into this wedding invitation design through the use of a colored belly band or envelope liner. A simple pop of color can really bring in your color theme while keeping the main stationery very classic and timeless.
