From bold, purple and burgundy florals to romantic, soft pink roses, I’m rounding up 10 of my favorite wedding invitations from 2020.

Favorites 1-3: Letterpress Wedding Invites

I have three favorite wedding invitations from 2020 in the letterpress category. First up is a wedding invitation suite for Jess & Ian’s wedding. Everything about Jess and Ian’s wedding was classic and romantic. The white roses and greenery on the rsvp and details cards were a match-made-in-heaven with the playful sage green letterpress invitations.

My signature collection of wedding invitations debuted in 2020. One of my favorite wedding invitations from the collection is the Charlotte suite. It features silver letterpress ink and a faux-calligraphy font that’s sure to impress any wedding guest!

Last, but not least, in the letterpress category, is the Joelle Suite. It was thoughtfully designed for a Connecticut styled shoot organized by very talented Sarah Brehant, wedding planner and owner of Brehant Creations Events. The photographers at this event were top notch and their talent shined through when photographing this invitation suite.

TIP: Check out any potential wedding photographer’s style when it comes to photographing the details, like your wedding jewelry, invitations and shoes! If that’s important to you, make sure you choose a photographer who is good at capturing those details.

Styling is an art and you can see above that you can get a totally different vibe with the same wedding invitations, but different styling!

Favorites 4-6: Digitally Printed Floral Wedding Invites

In 2019 and the beginning of 2020 there was a trend toward using big floral “bouquets” on wedding invitations, but by the end of 2020 the trend was very much turning toward modern and minimalistic. It was so interesting watching bold florals focus transform into pretty, calligraphy fonts with a focus on text and wording over graphics and florals. Here are some of my favorite examples of both!

My absolute favorite floral wedding invitation suite from 2020 is the Hannah Suite from my signature collection. It has garden party written all over it. What girl doesn’t dream of a garden party wedding with twinkle lights and all the beautiful floral arrangements?

I also had the pleasure of working with Kayla from K Photography last year for a really fun, fall styled shoot with the unexpected theme of bright florals and turquoise! And let me tell you, the shoot turned out just gorgeous, including all of the stunning details and styling she did with my wedding invitation design.

Kaitlyn and Dylan’s wedding invitation suite was bursting with personality and purple and burgundy florals! The bold script fonts and fun song request card perfectly fit the personality of this couple.

Favorites 7-8: Minimalist Wedding Invitations

Now on to some of the more minimalistic, digitally printed designs of 2020. Starting with the Emma Suite which has been designed to show what color can do to totally change the look and overall feel of an invitation suite. On the left, you’ll see a springy, cheerful Emma Suite in lavender and lilac hues, then on the right you’ll see a more moody, burgundy and black version of Emma made more for a winter wedding.

Keeping with the moody vibes, and throwing in a personalized monogram, next up, is the Claire Suite from a styled shoot at the Historic White Oak Farm in Morrow, Ohio. I’m loving the texture of these invitations with the almost velvet looking emerald green background. Megan from Megan Badia Photography crushed it with these pictures.

Favorites 9-10: Unique Wedding Invitations

The Roxy Suite definitely makes the list for one of my top 10 favorite invitations of 2020. It’s a little bit edgy, mixed with a little bit of sparkle and a lot of cool. The rose gold foil headphones made of tiny music notes are sure to create a lasting memory for your wedding guests.

Last, but certainly not least, is the Jericka Suite. It’s sunny and cheerful with the sweetest orange citrus monogram and yellow raised ink printing.

I hope you enjoyed my walk down 2020 memory lane… who thought we’d want to do that! I can’t wait to continue to share my projects, styled shoots and clients’ weddings with you this coming year.

Cheers to a happy new year full of creativity and renewed energy!
