Elegant lines in the form of calligraphy isn’t something new in the wedding industry. How many invites have you received with your name meticulously handwritten in gold ink across the thick envelope?
But we’ve noticed an emerging trend even among celebrity couples: beautiful line art adorning their invites. Here are just a few of them that you can take inspiration from for your own. Plus, artists you can tap (and where to have them printed) if you decide to go with line art for your own wedding invites.
The minimalist look with just their names and tiny leaf illustration looked lovely with gorgeous handmade paper that got the letterpress treatment. Keep your invite classy like Moira Dela Torre and Jason Hernandez’s, complete with an equally elegant serif to match the simple calligraphy.
Iza Calzado and Ben Wintle’s monogram featured a line art portrait of the couple. The save-the-date looked stunning even with nothing else but the date of their wedding.
Got a recurring theme in your wedding collaterals like a tropical print? Go for a simplified illustration of one of the components of your theme and let it shine on your invite.
Did you and your partner meet at a significant place? Why not have the spot illustrated and use it on your save-the-dates? You can even share the story on how you met to give your guests a taste of kilig.
For couples who are artists, why not insert a bit of whimsy to your invites with some hand-drawn doodles onto your envelopes? That’s what Rob Mananquil and Maxene Magalona did with their cute black-and-white invites.
