2019 Bridal Stationery Trends

Personalized Stationery has Transformed the Market

The Etsy-Pinterest generation has transformed this market into a reflection of its brides, not the other way around. It is all about the personalized — and the personal, commented Haute Papier’s Sarah Meyer Walsh.

“We’re also seeing couples setting themselves apart — and their guests’ experience apart — by adding super personal touches to their wedding paperie. One couple wrote a personal welcome note to every single guest, which also served as their reception place cards.”

What’s Hot

Dark moody florals, hand-lettering, a blending of colors in one palette, like a mix or blues or neutrals. “From ink colors to the paper color choices, blending color allows for a creative design while staying traditional,” said Haute Papier’s Erin Miller.

Meanwhile, foil stamping and letterpress continue to edge out traditional engraving, while the couple’s name in calligraphy gives it a pop from the rest of the Roman wedding suite.

“We get inspired by what’s driving our bridal clients. Whether it’s a family crest or pops of a favorite color, there’s usually something speaking to them that we like to pull throughout the wedding suite. We also find so much inspiration in interior design … textiles, rugs, ceramics. Right now there are so many strong tonal designs pinned up in our office as inspiration!” — Sarah Meyer Walsh, Haute Papier
