Modern Wedding Invitations Inspiration
These design-forward wedding invitations have one in thing in common—they’re all heart-stoppingly gorgeous.
From monochrome stunners to die-cut beauties, prepare to get a serious case of invitation lust…
1. Celestial Starchart Invitations
These dreamlike invitations feature a vintage starchart on the reverse of the cards.
Designed by Colarado-based studio Ladyfingers Letterpress, these invites use the technique of blind debossing, where the design is printed without ink and leaves a deep impression on the paper.

2. Pale Blue and Gold Invitations
Designed by London-based designer Katie Szadziewska, these invitations are delicate and elegant, and the perfect example of the ‘wow’ effect well-set typography can bring to a design.
We particularly love the pale blue paired with gold foiling, and the lovely ampersand set in Caslon Italic.

3. Monochrome Invitations
Monochrome is often underused on wedding invitations, in favor of pastels and metallics, but it really deserves more attention—these black and white invitations designed by Corina Nika (aka Cocorrina) prove how high-impact this simple color combination can be.

4. Black and Gold Invitations
With a very subtle nod to Art Deco design, these elegant black invitations with gold foiling are a perfect style for more formal weddings.
Take a tip from these designs and mix up classic serif typestyles with elegant scripts for a beautiful contrast.

5. Icelandic Invitations
These deep blue invitations with copper foiling were custom-designed by Lindsey of The Hunter Press for her own Icelandic wedding.
The attention to detail on these designs is breathtaking—a vintage-inspired letterpress map is enclosed within; and brown envelopes and leather ribbon make a lovely rustic contrast to the glamorous foiling.
Try out copper foiling, rather than silver or gold, for an invitation design that looks thoroughly modern and equal parts masculine and feminine.

6. Die-Cut and Embossed Invitations
We had to come to a head with these amazingly unique invitations from Spanish print studio El Calotipo.
A series of die-cut circles are brought together into one compact swizel design. The embossed design is inspired by the engravings found on baroque lutes—a fitting tribute to the musician couple’s vocation.
