Lisa from Ruban Collectif shares her insights into stationery design trends and what is currently inspiring brides: “For 2 years brides have been asking for rustic themed stationery, usually represented by either the tree, french traditional pattern such as fabric from vichy, or dot and stripes for the retro feeling.

The colour of the designs varies from couple to couple, with some looking for the more traditional schemes, keeping with a pale and neutral colour palette including pastel colours.   Then there are couples who are more extravagant and want the all rainbow in their wedding invites! But the majority of couples are not looking to make a statement but colours that compliment their theme and that will appeal to them and the rest of their guests.

In termes of trends, flowers are still strong  design element as are also patterns,  whilst the simple and clean typographic invitation remains popular.

Whilst we have seen an increase in ‘green and eco’ weddings with international clients, it is not a consideration that is at the forefront of many French brides design criteria.  However like with many trends that start in US and UK it may well become a higher priority.

This year I really saw a change this year with couples asking me for more graphical design, keeping nature in mind, but playing for example with pictures and add colors filters, or super graphic fonts, for a vintage/modern look.  Rustic and modern can work together as long as you know how to keep the right balance!”
