39 Glamorous Metallic Stationery Suites
One way to make an instant impression with your wedding invitation suite? Add a little extra shine with the help of a metallic color palette. These hues are instant classics, and they always bring an extra dose of elegance to wedding details for an all-around stunning celebration. Plus, they look especially gorgeous alongside a whole slew of popular wedding colors—gold, silver, copper, rose gold, and gunmetal complement practically any palette you already have in mind. And with foil pressing, engraving, and calligraphy, metallic accents are becoming more and more popular for celebrations of every style. It's no surprise we're seeing so many glittering invitation suites to match.
Use metallic colors in your wedding invites to set the tone for your wedding theme, whether that means a little bit of gold for vintage or modern weddings alike, or a bit of silver or copper to keep your metallic selections feeling fresh and on-trend. There's basically no paper detail that doesn't benefit from the addition of a touch of metallic color. And the color options are endless, so feel free to think beyond neutrals and consider fun options like metallic blue or green.
From copper details to golden brushstrokes, there's lots of inspiration to take away from these gilded, reflective, and metallic invitations. Whether you want something statement-making—like the Haute Papier invitation suite with a graphic copper pattern shown here—or something more subtle, there's a way to make metallics part of your big-day paper goods. Click through here for some of our favorite ideas.
Gold Is the New Black
Black ink on white card stock might be traditional, but it's far from your only option if you favor a classic look. For a unique twist on timeless style, Written Word pressed gold foil onto marbled paper, then mailed the invites off in an envelope calligraphed with matching ink and an elegant wax seal.
A Modern Marvel
Foil printing on clear acrylic is a modern idea for your invitations, as this Papered Wonders, Inc. suite goes to show. The weight of the card makes it feel significant, and the metallic shimmers even more. Go big with your monogram and put a matching one on the back of the envelope flap, as seen here.
Just a Little Gold
There's no rule that says your metallic details have to be on the invitation itself. The Idea Emporium dressed up these envelopes with a thick gold edge and kept the invitation itself entirely black-and-white.
An Elegant Shimmer
What's not to love about this nontraditional invitation? Pale gold foil (the color is actually somewhere in between gold and silver) added a fresh vibe to Design House of Moira's formal calligraphy, which was actually on an angle itself. The torn edges of the vellum mixed traditional and modern even more.
Good as Gold (Leaf)
Textural metallic accents are sure to make a statement. After these invitations were letterpressed, Alissa Bell hand-applied gold leaf to each piece.
Delicate and Bronze
Amplify delicate calligraphy and illustrations by foiling them in a dark metallic tone, like Written Word did here on this deckle-edge invite.
If you're not ready to fully commit to metallics, start small. Cheree Berry Paper foil-stamped spot calligraphy and small illustrations on this gray and pink suite for just the subtlest dose of shine.
Look In the Mirror
Elins Art Studio ensured these invitations did double-duty on the metallic front thanks to a reflective card and a ribbon with a subtle sheen.
Oh So Graphic
A geometric floral pattern was foil-stamped, along with the invitation text itself, onto a clean white card by Rohner Press. The end result was sleek yet still fun.
In the Mix
This pink, teal, black, and white stationery suite proves that metallics don't have to be the main players on your invitation suite to stand out. Then came a little DIY. Small details on the stationery and gold-edged envelopes helped make these colorful paper goods even more eye-catching.
Laid-back designs can still feel meaningful. Just look at this Love Lettering invitation for proof. The pro calligraphed the information in a glowing gold ink onto a texture parchment, then added a piece of muslin behind it. If you're having a small wedding and can go the hand-written route, just imagine how special it would be to get this in the mail.
Lovely Paper Things combined a few different patterns in this one-of-a-kind suite that was screen printed by Czar Press in custom antique gold and silver shimmer ink. The celestial pattern on the liner and response envelope in silver were balanced by the gold full moon-shaped details and response cards.
Lauren Covington of Charm & Fig used as dusty blue as the primary color of this suite but then warmed it up with an ornate border foil-stamped in copper foil. The return address on the outer envelope also got the metallic treatment.
Flourished calligraphy and an illustration of the island destination this wedding took place on were all printed in gold. The matching metallic beveled edge on the invite added an extra dose of formality.
Copper and Blue
Tricia Kim of Fourteen-Forty beautifully blended navy blue and copper in this suite which is a little modern and a little fun while still being traditional. The bubbly liner and couple's calligraphed names (and bow tie to denote the dress code) were all copper foiled. The blue envelopes were closed with a matching wax seal and addressed by Papersoul in metallic ink.
Pretty in Rose Gold
This copper-foil stamped invitation by Lovely Paper Things balanced the couple's love of the city and the outdoors in an elevated way. The copper didn't stop with the text though. Delicate string was wrapped several times around the response card and envelope too.
Gold and Neutrals
Ready to Sparkle
Whether you choose copper or another metallic shade, matching the foil of the text (stamped here by Spark Letterpress) with your calligraphy will give your suite a chic, unified look.
Oh So Elegant
This suite is proof that simplicity and elegance can go hand in hand—especially when it comes to your wedding and when there's gold calligraphy by Written Word Calligraphy involved.
Silver and Gold
Make It Modern
Metallics can feel super traditional, but they can also add an extra pop to modern suites too. This fresh, unique take on "paper" goods, was designed by The Nouveau Romantics, includes a clear invitation with just the right amount of gold lettering.
Watercolor Pinks and Gold
Brushtrokes of Genius
Graphic and Gold
The best way to add an extra design element to your invitation suite? A shining gold motif, like the one featured on these bright Palm Springs wedding invitations by Amber Moon Design.
A touch of gold elevates these greenery-inspired wedding invitations, which were created by the bride herself, who runs Hew & Co. stationery company.
Floral and Foiled
Both the bride and groom were born beneath a crescent moon, so they opted to include a gold moon motif in their hand-calligraphed, letterpressed suite by Mon Voir. The phases of the moon on the envelope were also printed in gold.
Mixed With Marble
Gold and Gray
Mad for Plaid
Liz Cooke from Lionheart Prints created this flat-printed suite with gold foil stamping and hand-lettering, plus white calligraphy on the kraft paper envelope. The envelopes were lined with a custom red tartan plaid, inspired by the classic "Ralph Lauren in winter" aesthetic.
Mixed with Pastels
Natalie Chang designed this invitation suite using pastels, gold calligraphy, and a watercolor illustration of the wedding venue to carry through the fun and fanciful feel of this spring wedding. The gold border on the main invite card makes it feel even more significant.
Watercolors and Gold
This bride and groom opted for a gold foil-pressed invitation designed by Amber Moon Design printed with a watercolor design in the day's color scheme.
