Simple, Modern, and Minimalist Wedding Invite
What we love about this wedding invite is how it plays with space. Consider the fact that not everything has to be perfectly centered or left or right-aligned!
The lowercase lettering gives us indie-chic vibes, and a dreamy mix of italics, cursive, and overall spacing makes this invitation pretty unique without too much effort!
Elegant Beige Botanical Wedding Invite
Want something minimalist but bored of the black and white look? Go in a different direction and keep it classic with neutral tones such as shades of beige.
Take a look at this elegant invitation that features big initials and a simple floral decal. Just like the previous invitation, this one also features a little bit of cursive interspersed between capital letters for visual variety.
Marbled Background Minimalist Wedding Invitations
We don’t foresee marble trends going away any time soon. It’s an effortless way to cultivate classy and elegant vibes, and even if marbling isn’t your style, it could almost be viewed as almost wispy grays, like smoke or fog.
This modern invitation features simple cursive calligraphy against a marbled background and we are here for it! If you’re not a fan of the cursive, this invite can be easily edited in Templett.
Romantic Cursive Minimalist Wedding Invite
One of the most magical things about minimalistic wedding invites is the absolute wizardry of just a few strokes or lines. A well-placed hand-drawn sprig of rosemary adds a rustic and botanical touch to an already romantic-looking invitation!
This one features beautiful calligraphy, lots of gorgeous embellishments, and a super fun angular, art-deco-ish numeral to contrast all the flowy writing. One of the provided samples is printed on paper with a raw, torn edge, and it looks gorgeous!
Earth-Toned Minimalist Wedding Invitation Suite
Another great way to mix up your wedding invitations whilst keeping it simple and maintaining the minimalistic vibe is to merely switch up the colors of your invitation suite.
This one, for example, has wonderful earth tones that have a streamlined look across all information cards but changes the font color and contrasting background.
Sans Serif Modern Minimalist Wedding Invite Set
While experimenting with calligraphy, you may come to a quandary where you’re not sure if you want to go all sans serif or all handwritten print. Pro tip: incorporate a little of both!
That being said, when envisioning the entire look of the invitation suite, keep the information on the cards easy to read and digest with sans serif fonts, or all capitalized (or lowercase, for that matter) instead of a flowy script that may be harder to read.
Then add a bit of embellishment or visual flourishes with a different font that will give your invitations a bit more personality!
Neutral Botanical Outline Minimalist Wedding Invite
Going for a boho-chic wedding aesthetic? You’ll want to explore these gorgeously simple wedding invitations that feature a beautiful floral outline motif across all cards.
We love the neutral vibe that keeps everything feel classic and restrained. If your wedding theme features a lot of botanicals, remember that you don’t have to always go green- sometimes earthy tans and browns will do just the trick!
Classic and Modern Minimalist Wedding Invitation
This elegant wedding invite features big, bold lettering for the happy couple.
With interesting spacing and direct, cleanly presented information at the bottom of the invite, there’s no doubt this invitation is attractive and stylish in the way it plays with font sizing and space.
Faded Handwritten Calligraphy Wedding Invite
Want more emphasis on specific elements on your invitations but don’t want to it be too stark and contrasted in color?
Take a look at this beautiful simple wedding invitation that features faded calligraphy in the background of the card. Printed in white, it’s just subtle enough to be noticed on the neutral-colored paper.
Remember, any sort of calligraphy, handwritten-looking print, or cursive will add an element of elegance and style. When going the minimalistic route, play around with combinations that look appealing to you, and don’t forget about the foreground and background as editable areas as well!
White Ink on Modern Black Wedding Invite
We think black wedding invites should be more popular than they are!

Abstract Typography Minimalist Wedding Invitation
When we say “spacey,” we don’t mean it in a bad way at all when it comes to this wedding invite. The curious stacking of letters looks abstract but still retains an elegant and intentional artsy feel.
This would be perfect for an intimate wedding at an art gallery, book store, or any creative space.

Simple Black and White Invitation with Roman Numerals
Do you love the look of roman numerals?
This black and white wedding invitation is all about the fun calligraphy blended with an impactful, bold font. The casual sayings like “to have and to hold” and “the little details” are a nice contrast to the more serious look of the roman numerals.
Let’s just hope your guests can decipher the date correctly!
Arched Simple Wedding Invitation
This adorable wedding suite comes in shades of neutral and blush, and to add an extra element of visual appeal, the arched invite looks great juxtaposed with the other standard rectangular-shaped info cards.
Playing around with the shapes and textures of your paper is a great way to still inject a good amount of intentionality in your wedding invites while keeping them simple!

We love the mix of modern and cursive type fonts that add a hint of boho dreaminess, too.
Clean Typography Minimalist Wedding Invite
If you haven’t picked up on it already, one of the biggest signifiers of a minimalist wedding invitation has got to be the standalone initials.
A modern typeface is almost always sans serif, and if that’s what you’re looking for, there are plenty of styles of sans serif typefaces to explore!
This invitation has several coloring options in shades that range from neutrals to barely-there colors.
Watercolor Wildflowers Wedding Invitation
Minimalism dictates that less is more, so when going the botanical route, consider a row of simple floral stems to add just the right amount of color.
Whether it’s a singular monstera leaf, palm frond, or daisy outline, keep it small, simple, and eye-catching to achieve a great minimalistic feel.
