Ivory is the new white

by Tina at Paper Lily

As we have mentioned in previous posts, neutral colours have become increasingly popular choices for wedding invitations. White, ivory and latte were the colours of 2011 and we are already seeing a continuation of this trend as 2012 begins. Our most popular choice by far has been the use of black with ivory, irrespective of whether the bride is wearing white or ivory and in no way related to the colour of the bridesmaids.

Black & Ivory

This design is one of my favourites. It uses an ivory  matte  card with texture – a move away from the traditional metallic and shimmer cards. The lace at the bottom is ivory and the thin black satin ribbon is the perfect compliment to the design. An invitation like this is timeless and elegant.

Here is another example of the use of black and ivory. This invitation is a flat DL card in ivory with a black backing card. The lace and ribbon detail is featured at the top leaving ample room for the text. This ribbon is wide black grograin to add another textural element to the invitation.

We intend on designing more invitations in this color combination so keep an eye on the image gallery in our website www.paperlily.com.au
