Ready to jump into planning your modern wedding?

Good. Because you have lots of decisions to make! For example, you have to figure out what you mean by modern so you can choose the right kinds of decorations, clothing, accessories, and extras for your big day.

At that point, you'll also know what kind of modern wedding invitations you'll want.

There's a wide range to choose from, anything from bright and colorful to sleek and sophisticated. This post will give you an overview of some of the most popular options and ideas you'll run across, so you can decide if you want something similar or pick and choose the aspects you like.

That being said, here are a bunch of modern wedding invitations for your inspiration: 

Simple, Straightforward Invitations

When people hear the word modern, many think about simplicity.

As such, some of the most modern wedding invitations you can pick will be as simple as possible.

For example, these kinds of invitations tend to have nothing on them other than print in maybe two different fonts. Some may have a solid border or dividing line, but usually there's nothing else on these types of invitations.

Choose this style if you don't want anything fancy or daring for your wedding day.

Bold & Contemporary Invitations

Another aspect of modern weddings is geometric patterns, brilliant colors, and clean, crisp lines.

These types of wedding invitations are perfect for the couple who really wants a contemporary, bold feeling to their wedding.

Look for options that combine all three of these elements (patterns, color, and lines) for maximum impact.

Unique Invitations

Unique is almost as hard to define as modern. However, for the sake of this post, unique means anything that's non-traditional.

And non-traditional options are perfect for couples who want to be different. Look for invitations that are created in unique formats, like cut up into puzzle pieces, or delivered in cool packaging, like an old camera film roll.

Even better: pick invitations made out of metal, glass, or other materials that match the stuff your modern wedding venue is made of!

Electronic Invitations

The epitome of a 21st-century wedding is doing anything digital.

So if you want to send out electronic modern wedding invitations, nothing would make more sense. You can go through an eCard service or website, or you can choose to hire a designer to create a digital invitation you can send using your own email address.

This is also a good option for couples who want to be eco-friendly and keep track of their wedding plans digitally to save on paper and waste.
