When it comes to modern wedding invitations, don’t confuse modern with minimalist! You, my dear, can have it all… whether it’s black and white, colorful, or intricately abstract, you can achieve a modern look with little effort!
Wedding criteria and aesthetics change all the time, so if you’re worried your invites won’t be trendy, don’t! Contemporary styles may now include abstract design, fun fonts, and typography, but they will always continue to evolve. What matters most is that you make your invitations your own!
If you’re on the hunt for some inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. Emphasize what you want, toss out what you don’t, and just have fun designing the invitation of your dreams! Here are some of our favorite modern wedding invitation designs…
What Makes a Wedding Invitation Modern?
There are quite a few elements that make wedding stationery “modern,” and lucky for you, it isn’t difficult to align your personality with them either!
Consider incorporating monograms or lowercase letters of your initials. Explore patterns, shapes, and silhouettes to bring that extra WOW factor to your invitation. Peruse the numerous trendy themes including geometric lines, arch shapes, and textured paper patterns!
Depending on the level of formality you desire for your big day, you can even make subtle changes to help your guests understand the vibe. Consider changing the paper’s weight, opting for colored edges, and switching up the envelope style or even the physical shape of the invite.

We love a couple of things about this invitation- it’s sleek, simple, and the arched body of the invite exudes warmth and harmony. Not to mention, the transparency looks great contrasted against the colorful earth tones of the RSVP and Info cards.
Minimalist Black Wedding Invitation

If you’re having an elegant affair but don’t want to come off too stuffy, switch it up and consider an all-black wedding invitation!
We love this one because it’s still clean and of minimalist design, but it has enough fun typefaces to make it interesting.

Refer to highlighted fields shown in the listing images to indicate text fields that can be edited. Only the wording, fonts, font size and color of the highlighted fields can be edited. The position of the editable fields and graphic elements cannot be changed or moved.
Modern invitations typically feature lots of color blocking or clean lines and shapes. This clean and neutral wedding invite ties in a lot of modern features without going too overboard!
We love the nude shades in this suite because they complement many a wedding style- as the adage goes, “Keep it Simple!”
Blind Debossed Tropical Palm Leaves Wedding Invitation
Are you planning a tropical wedding celebration but don’t want to get too crazy with the botanicals? If you want to give your invitations a modern twist, dive into blind debossing- it’s a great way to leave an impression (no pun intended)!
We love this wedding invitation for the fun textured palm leaves and sans serif typography. Overall, the look is clean and minimalistic but still has a fresh feel from the debossing.
Large Initial Wedding Invitation Set
Want to experiment with some fonts? Modern wedding invitations make it easy to make things truly yours.
Take a look at this crisp black and white wedding invitation that features a combination of your initials. Lowercase, of course (we don’t foresee that trend going anywhere anytime soon).

It just comes to show that you can still have soft, feminine, and delicate styles in the modern wedding invitation world without sacrificing an ounce of style.
Textured Cardstock Wedding Invitation
One way to mix things up on your wedding invites is to explore a variety of weighted paper and textures, and we are just a little obsessed with this cardstock!
This invite is printed on handpicked, 300gsm luxury textured paper, and in the light, you can see the delicate details.
Even if you’re planning on keeping the print clean with black font, adding a touch of texture is a great way to bring this trend into your simple wedding invitation.
Playful Typography Wedding Invite Template
This wedding invite is modern and minimalist, but still fun! Just take a look at how the cursive words bring an element of playfulness between the capitalized headers.
Colorful Modern Botanical Wedding Invitation
Modern doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be minimalistic! We love this one because of the abstract, punchy botanical printed leaves and florals.
If you don’t utilize white and black at all, the overall effect is still breezy and fun. We love how the darkest colors on the invite are still in the burgundy family- and you can safely bet this wedding will feature tons of tropical, boho-inspired floral arrangements.
Black and White Lined Arch Wedding Invitation
The arch theme is here to stay and this is a great example of why! You don’t always have to have the arch shape incorporated as the physical invitation itself, you can simply add it as a border to achieve a similar effect.
We like how this set includes one card in the opposite color; it adds an element of contrast and fun!

Against the clean white background, the overall effect is so eye-catching and fun.
Contemporary Shaped Wedding Invite Template
For some reason, we’re getting some nostalgia feels when we look at this wedding template. Maybe it’s the fun paperclip?
This invitation suite gets a facelift with its contemporary-shaped edges and ombre-like shades. When choosing a color palette, don’t be afraid to play around in the color family; you may discover different tones that convey the mood without having to throw in every single wedding color!
Modern Boho Star-Crossed Lovers Wedding Invite Set
Astrology is definitely in right now, and if you and your partner feel like your match was spelled out in the heavens, this is a great way to nod to those celestial powers that be.
The color scheme is easy to edit if you’re not a fan of these earthy tones. With four cards in this suite, you’ll have plenty of options, so get creative!
Terracotta and Navy Solid Color Wedding Invite Set
This modern and sophisticated wedding invitation suite set has a contemporary aesthetic and style, with color palette using shades of peach, terracotta orange, and navy blue.
Solid colors are a great way to give a modern look to your wedding invitations. By playing around with color depth, it feels artsy without being too in-your-face.
We love the hip look of lowercase letters, too.
Quirky and Bold Lowercase Letters Wedding Invitation
This DIY PRINTABLE wedding invitation template suite features bold statement fonts and a modern minimalist design. Use this template to edit the fonts, font color, and background color to match your event needs.
So we’ve covered the appeal of lowercase letters and fun typography fonts. But here is a great example of how kerning and spacing can work in your favor.
Having the text go from one edge to another gives it a full and abundant feel… perfect for a wedding celebration of love!
Prominent Date Eclectic Wedding Invite
The design is fully customizable. You can change the colours for the background, fonts, font sizes and text.
Take the pressure off making your names front and center of your wedding invitation and consider featuring your wedding date instead!
If you’re a couple that has a date picked out that is super special, harmonious, or just straight fun (2-22-22 weddings, hello!) this is a great way to highlight it.
Geometric Color Block Wedding Invite
This semi-custom invitation suite is customized to your wedding needs and what you would like included!
Geometric shapes, lines, and colors, oh my!
We love this twist on color-blocked wedding invites because this one has fun shapes- it feels mod, fun, and still elegant.
Minimalist Black and White Wedding Invite with Greenery
This refined wedding invitation is still romantic- and all it took was a soft little sprig of greenery. It looks almost hand-drawn, which always adds a touch of rusticness to an overall modern invitation!
Bold Lettering Wedding Invite
The playfulness between the large bolded names and the arched text adds visual appeal. Don’t be afraid to go bold; after all, you’re getting married… shout it out to the world with some bold block text!
Wavy Color Block Wedding Invitation
You can still do a color block in a variety of ways that isn’t just stiff, sleek lines.
Take a look at this wavy design of punchy colors- it has a modern color palette that still retains a lot of groovy vibes!
Arched Vellum Card Wedding Invitation
We at Wedding Pioneer love anything with vellum. It’s a dreamy addition to any wedding suite, but for a modern and boho event, it takes this arched and tied wedding invite to the next level.
Fun and Colorful Pink Modern Wedding Invitation Suite
This bold, pink wedding invitation suite is so fun.
With modern elements of typography (check out the + instead of a more traditional ampersand) and punchy colors, this wedding screams good times!
Modern Olive and Earth Toned Wedding Invite
If you’re a boho bride and looking for something that still feels natural and botanical without featuring too many plants, consider implementing earth and olive tones into your wedding invites instead of prints and drawings.
It’s a modern, soothing color palette that will instantly clue guests into the vibe for the big day!
Hip Black and White Retro Wedding Invite
This wedding invite is a great example of how much weight font actually pulls when it comes to wedding invitation design.
This funky font is retro, which sounds somewhat counterintuitive when we’re talking about modern styled invites, but we beg to differ.
Retro font, when paired with a simple sans serif font (for the information) instantly lifts this invitation and gives it some fun personality. You don’t even need to go crazy with the colors (but you can- and we definitely won’t judge you!)
Modern Elegant Gold Wedding Invitation
The gold edges on this refined wedding invitation are so delicate and help to give it a little bit of “rawness.”
We think this would be a great choice for a modern wedding taking place in the late summer or early fall.
You can have both elegant and modern in the same invitation, and this is proof! We’re forecasting beautiful yellow flowers everywhere, bud vases full of sprigs, and lots of love.
