Go for light colors
Light colors and shades are in vogue when it comes to wedding invitation. A bold and moody palette has evolved in wedding paper with colors ranging from pastel colors, to grey taking center stage.
The classic wedding invitation combos like red and golden or green and red are to be avoided; the color combos come with obvious connotations. The trick is to switch up at least one shade to downplay the monotony of colors or maybe incorporate subtle variants of a color to add dimension and depth.
Photographs and caricature always add to the quirk
Using photographs and personalized caricatures continues to be in trend. Caricature makes the wedding invitation peppy and light hearted. Now almost all wedding card makers have caricature artists who develop multiple caricatures in no time and provide you a variety of options to choose from.
Make it fun with pop- ups.
3-D pop up wedding cards are the latest trend available for the whimsical and imaginative people. Pop ups make the card distinctive, individualistic and fun. Pop ups literally take your invitation to other dimensions.
Personalize the text
The invitation that starts with ‘we invite you to the auspicious occasion of’ is being used since ancient times. Instead of this overused and impersonal text; personalized messages can be used in wedding invitations. The bride or groom can write their story, share their experiences and interesting snippets from their lives in wedding cards to make it unique and scintillating.
Make it unconventional with calligraphy and hand written text
Forget patterns and cute motifs; the new trend is straight from the hand. Calligraphers create new, modern fonts and styles that feel totally fresh with their pretty penmanship and ornate calligraphy. You can try the trend even by having just your names hand lettered. There are a few set of fonts that are commonly used in invitations. Use a calligrapher’s help to create a custom font or you can even try your own handwriting for the invitation text. This again saves your card from being boring and regular.
Final touch with envelope liners
Envelope is the first thing that guests see when they excitedly tear open your invite. Liners are a great finishing touch and the perfect place to add fun design elements like a personal detail or something artistic, like your wedding date. The card can be paired with a colorful envelope for really eye-catching mail.
Don’t be too religious in the invitation

Wedding being an important event of a person’s life; people believe that adding religious symbols helps in glitch free execution of the event.
