From sports to wedding ideas, Pinterest is the go-to for the latest trends and creative ideas. Dubbed “the world’s catalogue of ideas” on its website, Pinterest has been in business since 2010.

Whether you’re designing your wedding invitation or choosing the stock for your baby shower cards, Pinterest offers a plethora of inspiration.

Color Trends and Design

Announced earlier this year on Pantone’s website, the 2017 Color of the Year is Greenery (Pantone 15-0343). A “fresh and zesty yellow-green shade,” the color is viewed as nature’s neutral and a symbol of new beginnings.

Simple greenery weddings and illustrated green leaves are an anticipated wedding trend for this spring and summer. You can expect designs incorporating tropical foliage, rustic wreaths, romantic garland, and a mixture of succulents.

Floral is also expected to be highly welcomed in 2017, especially for outdoor, boho and vintage themed weddings.

Luxurious metallic touches are expected to make a comeback this year. Inline or stamped foil for borders and flourishes are the perfect way to incorporate this trend. Printsocial offers nine inline foil options and numerous metallic stamped foil options for your printing needs.

Themes and Color Palettes

With so many wedding color palettes and themes out there, it can become a challenge to select the perfect one to set the mood. With the help of Janie Kliever’s article, “100 Brilliant Color Combinations and How to Apply Them to Your Designs,” I found 5 color combinations for popular wedding themes.

Nature

Using warm, grayish undertones makes the cooler greens contrast nicely for a nature themed wedding. This invitation was inspired by #4 “Crisp& Dramatic” artwork on Kliever’s page.
