If you are currently in the market for wedding invitations and need a little help in choosing what you think is on trend for 2017 then look no further. Here is preview of what we at Loving Invitations think will be big in UK wedding invitation design. We see it being natural, creative and classic this year with beautiful florals, fancy calligraphy, laser cut detail, and rustic affairs.

The nature trend continues to be popular but in 2017, it’s all about beautiful flowers and the rustic countryside. It is less structured and more organic. Here at loving invitations we love nature and there’s nothing so naturally charming or as simple and delicate as flowers. Amazing for boho, rustic or vintage themed weddings.

Modern Rustic

Modern Rustic is very much in and going nowhere anytime soon. Rustic elements mixed with a soft colour palette and teamed with Kraft envelopes. Invitation wording is also “modern” in content – couples are mostly choosing to invite their guests from themselves now.  Only on a few occasion over the last year, have I been asked to include their parent’s names on the wedding invitation introduction.

Colour Trends

I would anticipate that pastel colours will continue to be very popular in 2017.

From soft-washed cakes to dipped invitations, watercolor wedding ideas of all kinds have been popping up and grabbing our attention especially in wedding invitation designs. I think that watercolour designs are definitely set to be popular in 2017


Bold graphics and type fonts are becoming quite popular, with couples opting to use striking graphics and bold type fonts for their invites – think script and calligraphy styles, making a big impact whilst still being very easy to read.

Here at loving invitations we have seen various trends ‘design-wise’ come and go but in regards to wedding invitations, clean cut designs with elegant touches such as romantic fonts and delicate illustration details are going nowhere! Keep it classy and elegant, legible and neat, and then let the design convey your personality and taste.
