Future Wedding Stationery Trends – what will be big in 2013

Here is a brief look at what may be big in the coming year for wedding invitations and stationery. We try and look ahead at what will be coming in the future. Although a big disclaimer – really choose a design on how much you like it, not by how on trend something is. Often the trendiest things at the time become the silliest later, like shellsuits and mullet haircuts. Lots of styles come around quite regularly. I’m seeing styles which were popular in 2010 and 11 in one movement coming back around for 2013 already, twenty years down the line when you’re looking at your gorgeous wedding album I’m not sure you will really care if it was that trendy at the time.

So lets see if there’s anything new!

Stripes, stripes are going to be big. It doesn’t seem that long since I did a stripey range when I thought stripes were cool! But they’re coming back. The catwalks of Milan were stuffed with them, vertical and horizontal and including chevrons which were already featuring 2012. Might be time to introduce my own chevron design!

Orange – coming off the catwalks of New York orange could feature a lot this year. Artemis Stationery makes bespoke stationery, our designs can be printed in any colour so I’m going to somewhat ignore this, while thinking that it might be wise to do a few more orange sample photos for the website just encase.

Art Deco – I’ve been saying art deco is coming for a while and so has Vogue. Though to be fair I did read it on Vogue, which is odd as I don’t often read it. But they’re still saying it and so am I.  The main reason it will be big is the Great Gatsby film remake. Sara of Burnett’s Boards is also highlighting this. We have several very strong Art Deco ranges, like Miami, Bologne and Capri and several others which can be styled to look more Art Deco. See Artemis Stationery’s ranges here

Birds – birds apparently will grow in popularity.  I’ve been noticing them grow in popularity on sites selling decorative items. Maybe it’s a consequence of the birdcages which everyone was into in 2011! I do like the look of birdcages, some of them are amazingly ornate, I just always wondered about the symbolism of them. Probably thought about it too much.

Patterns – along with stripes and maybe dots floral patterns are coming back. Prada and Bottega Veneta both used floral patterns on the Milan catwalks. While Chrissy from the Perfect Pallette is predicting paisley will be popular again.
