Wedding Color Palette Trend Alert

With just a few months left in 2017, we’re following up on the year’s color palette trends. We made some trend forecasts in January and have been right on the mark so far!

On-Trend Wedding Palettes

Neutral/tone-on-tone palettes are still huge! Tonal colors are classic, elegant, and timeless, so they can be showcased on any style of invitation suite. Metallics are still super popular as well, and tying in gold, copper, or silver can work with almost any palette.

Greenery, Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year, has an earthy, organic, and intimate vibe we just love, and it pairs beautifully with neutrals, blushes, and peach. The most popular bouquets and tablescapes of the year are simply packed with lush foliage.

One of our favorite ways to modernize a pink wedding is to pair it with blues and ivory instead of black and white. The result is southern proper, a little bit preppy, and just beautiful.

We especially love the focus on the groom in these inspiration boards. The palettes show just how easy it is to work the suit or tuxedo into the otherwise fairly bride-based process of wedding planning. Be sure to visit The Black Tux for the most current suit and tuxedo styles for rent with the convenience of modern service. And before you know it, we'll be blogging 2018 color and design trends!

Wedding Invitation Assembly Pro Tips

If your invitation suite consists of an invitation and RSVP card, stuffing them into an envelope isn't exactly rocket science, though it can take some time depending on the quantity. But add in additional enclosure cards, layered pieces, pocket folders, and/or a belly band wrap to hold it all together neatly, and some assembly will be required. Envelope liners are also a pretty way to add a pop of color or some pattern for contrast, but their installation can take valuable time. 


Since we have assembled and mailed thousands of wedding invitations, we are super efficient (and we are happy to offer this service), but if you prefer to assemble and mail the invitations yourself, that's totally fine too. We include all the materials needed along with your invitations and envelopes, and we have put together some handy tips here to help with wedding invitation suite assembly:

How to Assemble Belly Bands
