Invitation of the Moment: Espresso Wedding Invitations

We all love our morning cup of joe, so it’s no surprise this awakening color is making its way into wedding invitations as well! Chocolate brown was all the rage on last year’s wedding invitations, so why not refresh this year’s wedding invitations with a color a little lighter with an intriguing hint of richness: yummy espresso brown.

Not too long ago the latte cup itself was a status symbol, but now we are seeing espresso hues everywhere from manicures to handbags. As weddings imitate life, espresso sashes are springing up on bridesmaids dresses as rich brown detailing etches itself on the back of bride’s dresses. And let’s not forget the fellas: espresso brown is quickly becoming the it-color for groomsmen wear. Now its time for wedding invitations to follow suit, so to speak!

We like espresso wedding invitations because they feel sophisticated and grown-up ( a pleasant departure from pastels and the typical spring palates) but are still vivid enough not to feel like a business dossier. For added vivacity, invest in some stylish gold ribbon or burnt orange accents for a look that is trendy and bold. If you favor a spring feel, pair your espresso wedding invitations with pale purple or robin’s egg blue accents. So chic!

In general, choosing jewel tones or natural tones for your wedding palette infuses your wedding invitations with instant elegance, and ensures that they don’t get confused with baby shower invites or the latest Mary Kay newsletter. These more neutral tones also show a shift towards making the wedding more about the couple than just the bride, which no doubt the groom in your life will appreciate.

So how about it? Why not try a trendy espresso wedding invitation for a chic look you’ll never regret? Cool mix n’ match invitations create an impeccably modern look, so rally up that wedding invitation- making party and have at it. And while you’re at it, have a cappuccino.
