Be it white ink on graphite or the semi-translucent beauty of tracing-paper envelopes, the latest trend of contrasting texture and colour amongst wedding stationery suites is a welcome play on a celestial theme and lunar palette.
A stonewash mix of soft greys, mercurial silver scrawl and the slightest shades of pale marbled surfaces flecked with silver and gold metallics, we love the tonal mixture of light on dark colouring - reflective of a cold midnight sky interwoven with the warmth and light of a luminous moon.
If this is a look that appeals to you, determine first the preferred colour of your paper and ink. Look for contrast in your basics and a selection of no more than 3 different hues (perhaps a grey, white and blue or graphite, ivory and pink) that you can layer over and work around.
