We are always ready for brand-new wedding trends and color combinations, but we are also excited to see how timeless ideas continue to expand their fine points. One enduring concept is that of a rustic wedding – we have witnessed it change from the countryside to farmland to chic indoor elements and more. The idea of a picturesque natural setting, a stunning indoor fête that utilizes alfresco details, or even simply incorporating cool organic decorations is here to stay, and we love it! 

Rustic design concepts in wedding-décor elements continue to evolve, and now, more than ever, we are seeing gorgeous and new sophisticated rustic details in invitation suites. Bold-hued wax seals, laser-cut gate folders, custom crests and monograms, and rich envelope liners pair perfectly with elegant affairs, while stationery highlighting meadows and mountain peaks in subtle ways are ideal for laid-back country celebrations. 

For a more feminine touch, think soft-toned wildflowers and sprigs of lavender and other herbs. If you’re considering a more outdoorsy feel, consider upscale styles inspired by wooden elements, or for a classic vibe, you can’t go wrong with an autumnal pattern of leaves. 

Draw inspiration for your soirée from the suites included below, and take a look at other collections from these talented stationery companies.
