If you like to think of yourself as a modern bride, then you might gravitate towards some of the characteristics of the modern style when choosing your wedding invitations: bold graphics, artistic angles, and rich colours.
In the first of our five-part series on wedding invitations, we took a look at some traditional designs. As with the traditional style, the modern style can also get a lot of flack for being "boring" when minimalism is taken too far - i.e. if "clean, simple lines" turn into "lots of empty space with not a whole lot going on." So be careful.
The following sample selection of modern style wedding invitations is anything but boring - they're unique, fun, and simply sophisticated. They should give you enough ideas to get you started..
This bold floral print combines a little bit of 60s psychedelic with a clean border and slick, simple font. We found it amongst a collection of ultra-modern wedding invitations at boutique custom invitation studio Par Avion Design, in Vancouver.
With its gold leaf design and simple black border, this stunning invitation is ultra-modern yet elegant. We found it at Unity Weddings, amongst a slew of other themed invitations, including "winter wedding" "east meets west" and "my big fat Greek-Chinese-Egyptian wedding."
