Weddings are that time when everybody is pumped up, and there is a great hustle and bustle all around. Everyone wants their wedding invitation to be unique and engaging. You should keep several things in mind when you make a wedding invitation. This could be the theme or the type of guests you are inviting to the wedding.
Guests also look forward to receiving wedding invitations as your creativity is put to the test here. Therefore, you should put your creative hats on and start designing your wedding invitation. Several ideas can help you create the perfect wedding invitation for your wedding.
Trending Invitation Ideas
You can experiment with different trending ideas to create the perfect wedding card for you. However, it is not necessary to hand out physically printed wedding cards. You can go wild with your imagination and create a video invite using an online wedding invitation video maker. Here are some ideas that you can try out.
Visual Save the Dates
Save-the-dates are your first chance to show off your personality as a pair. Is there a quick and easy way to accomplish this? You should also include a photo of you and your fiancé. Save-the-dates with an engagement photo have become increasingly popular in recent years. However, that is not the only path you can take: illustrated engagement photographs have been increasingly fashionable in recent years. You can add dogs in their chosen images or artwork to make your save-the-dates even more personal.

Photo save-the-dates are available from most wedding stationery websites and designers. Making a ‘Save the Date’ video might add a nice touch. Just make sure you have a high-resolution digital copy of your preferred engagement photo or couple’s photograph available. If you are looking for illustrated artwork, check out the stationers in our vendor list or browse the possibilities on InVideo. A ‘Save the Date’ video will be an apt choice as you can easily store that video and revisit it whenever possible. Also, even your guests will highly recall the dates when they see a video invite.
Get Influenced by Vintages
In 2022, wedding gowns are not only getting a vintage makeover. Light neutral colors like champagnes, hazy blues, and gentle pinks make a comeback. These soft colors harken back to the Regency period and, of course, our favorite Netflix hit, Bridgerton. Predictably, the show will continue to influence wedding invitation patterns in 2022, but that is not all. Art Deco is making a comeback, and retro styles are becoming increasingly popular among those planning weddings.

Consider which era most closely resembles your intended wedding style and season. For example, the Regency era’s trademark pastel blues, purples, and yellows are ideal for a lovely spring soirée. On the other hand, Art Deco’s rich, metallic colors are suitable for an upscale winter wedding, and they are one of the top colors couples intend to use in 2022. You can also make vintage-themed video invitations for your weddings. Vintage-themed video can either have clips from your past, or you can get a pre-wedding shoot done and incorporate the shoot elements in the invite.
Cards with QR Codes
Wedding websites are more vital than ever because of the necessity for rapid and easy communication with guests. However, adding a printed URL on an enclosure card is not the only option to let visitors know about your website. You can also include unique QR codes for RSVPs and wedding registries. Guests can now use their smartphones to visit your wedding website or register, a hot new feature.
You may make your QR code on the internet using several sources. You can then work with your stationer to incorporate it into your stationery. Some couples use QR codes on answer cards to make collecting RSVPs easier, while others use them on details cards to link guests to their wedding website or registry. The QR codes can also be incorporated in video invites. You can end the video invite with a QR code so that the guests will not face any problem looking for the QR code in the video invite.
Make Use of Natural Hues
In 2022, we predict that calming, nature-inspired hues will be the most popular wedding invitations. Soft, natural tones (like peaceful blue) and more vibrant nature-inspired colors (like celery juice green) are becoming more popular. Earthy, nature-inspired tones are and will continue to be fashionable. Many of us have experienced a sense of serenity and relaxation by interacting with nature, and these warm, neutral colors create that same feeling.

To fit your wedding season, experiment with different hues. During the winter and spring, soft colors of blue appear wonderfully on the theme for your wedding invitation, while brilliant greens stand out in the summer. Turn to deep, earthy brown and red colors for the fall season. You can easily create a pastel shade wedding invitation on InVideo. You can make use of many pictures too in the wedding invite video. You can select a combination of pastel videos and create an exciting pastel-themed video invite for the wedding.
There are several reasons why minimalist wedding invitations are not going away anytime soon. The basic typography makes it easier for starters to communicate vital information (such as health and safety rules). Furthermore, the clean, contemporary look complements the quiet, discreet celebrations throughout the coronavirus outbreak. In 2022, expect to see minimalist wedding cards with neutral color schemes and basic typography continue to be popular.

You have seen minimalistic wedding invitation designs before: white paper with black writing spaced apart. We adore a classic black and white design scheme, but there are plenty of ways to personalize this popular look. Experiment with different fonts, colors, and designs to add a personal touch. Alternatively, turn the text over to reveal an unexpected element. Work with a professional designer or look for the perfect design on the internet.
Make It Personal. Make It You
You can embrace your persona and create the best wedding invitation for you. You can go the old style and do the paper invites or experiment and create a video invite. There are several online wedding invitation makers out there. You can try out your hands on all of these platforms and create something worth the occasion.
Alternatively, you can also hire a designer who can make an exciting and beautiful wedding invitation for the occasion. A wedding card is the best platform for unleashing your creative mind and going free. It would be best to try out different templates and formats before finalizing your wedding invitation.
