Wedding Paper Trends from Magnificent Milestones

Guest Blogger: Kara Gordon, Magnificent Milestones

When it comes to wedding paper, the possibilities are truly endless! Every couple brings their own personal style to each meeting and it’s always fun to combine that with the newest trends in paper. Certain colors and designs can come and go with each season, but we’ve put together a list of the latest styles that would complement any wedding perfectly.


Few things are as timeless as a beautiful wedding with soft, romantic colors. A palette of white, ivory, blush, gray and gold will always be a perfect backdrop to a bride in white and a groom in black! We’ve seen couples use charcoal and gold for invitations and then add a pop of pink in a pretty envelope liner or painted edge.



As soon as foil printing showed up on the first sample that came through our doors, we’ve been smitten. And that was three years ago! At first, foil printing was used with just metallic colors (silver, gold, bronze, copper), but now we see it in a whole rainbow of colors. Mint! Magenta! Purple! Foil has a way of adding just the right celebratory touch to any invitation, from black tie affairs to more informal barn weddings. We seriously hope this trend never goes away.



Nothing makes a wedding more Pinterest-worthy than those perfect little details! Items like napkins, stir sticks, toothpick flags, colored straws, and matchbooks tie together a bride’s vision perfectly. Even if it’s something as simple as the date written in the same font from the invitation or a 3 letter monogram printed on a few different pieces. Guests always appreciate that personal touch and we can tell you from experience that it makes the detail photos extra adorable!



Even though the idea of using calligraphy artwork on invitations has been around for years and years, we’re still obsessed! There’s something so unique and personal about having your wording written out by hand. We work with a number of amazing calligraphers who offer elegant, timeless styles along with more modern or whimsical options with a fresh feel. We love them all! And then when the wedding is over, couples can use the calligraphy for coordinating stationery, which we adore!


No matter what kind of fabulous wedding you’re putting together, there is sure to be an equally fabulous paper style to go along with it! Wedding invitations and day of items set the tone for the big day and we love getting creative with all of our wonderful clients!
