Celebrate your 21st-century romance with minimal and modern wedding invitations. If less is more for you and your partner, consider typography-forward or geometric-border designs that put the spotlight on your nuptials with sophistication. With fewer graphic elements in play, a bold use of color or texture can grab guests’ attention and be just as spell-binding as a bustling design. For a little shine, you’ll find luminous foil-stamped options in gold, silver, and rose gold to coordinate your invitations with your choice of metallics. Or, since you and your sweetheart are the main features of the event, consider including a favorite candid photo that showcases your never-ending love, front and center.
For a nod to tradition, browse our classic wedding invitations that highlight embossed backdrops and timeless graphic details. If that’s not enough, take a look at our full selection of wedding invitations to see every delightfully-detailed design that we offer.
Whether you’re inspired by Kelly Wearstler’s raw and refined textures or Oscar de la Renta's exquisite prints, our online design tools let you customize the colors, fonts, and layout to make a finely-tuned and elegant modern wedding invitation. Add an envelope liner or backdrop that matches elements of your venue, or choose a simple solid color to let your day-of details shine through.
Do you need a little help translating your concept into an invitation (or just want the benefit of your own atelier)?

Start with an existing card, personal photographs, or visual inspiration from your florals, and we’ll help you create custom artwork perfect for every piece of wedding stationery you’ll be sending.
Looking for wording suggestions for your modern wedding invitations? While your aesthetic design speaks to a contemporary style, the wording for your modern wedding invites can take a traditional stance, if you want. A classically-inspired “Please join us for the marriage of [bride] and [groom]” is a clear-cut message guests will undoubtedly understand regardless of their generation. If you and your partner are more playful and plan on holding a one-of-a-kind ceremony, word your invitation with something unique like “Come summarize our single lives with a celebration of connection and love,” or even a straightforward “We’re tying the knot! Come celebrate with us.” As long as guests have access to the vital details like date, time, and location you’re good to go. We have examples of wedding invitation wording and tips for wedding invitation etiquette that will give you a solid foundation for creating an invite that covers all the necessities.
The easiest format that works for every type of couple is to write out both people’s full names. If your wedding is leaning towards laidback and casual, you can drop the Mr. and Mrs. entirely—you're the master of planning your wedding, so steer your nuptial style in whatever direction you like. We’ve provided further explanations and examples on how to address wedding invitations so you’ll feel confident by the time you hit send.
