Elegant Watercolor Wedding Invitations


Super-excited to show you these gorgeous, elegant watercolor wedding invitations we created for this couple’s formal soirée! The bride wanted to include a purple flower design in her invitations while keeping the overall look classy and timeless. To bring her vision to life, we created a simple watercolor rendition of the flower and incorporated it throughout the suite. To add a formal appeal, we chose an elegant font and printed the bride & groom’s names in gold foil. We also letterpress printed the rest of the suite to create a timeless and classy feel. As a finishing touch, we incorporated a subtle, blind-pressed border design at the bottom of the invitation and used a pearlescent gold envelope liner. We just love how the organic watercolor touches and the elegant elements of these invitations came together so beautifully!

Art Deco-Inspired Wedding Invitations


Suite_1

We are in love with these beautiful Art Deco-Inspired Wedding Invitations!!! Mary + Jack exchanged their vows in on the oldest church in Tampa, the Sacred Heart Catholic Church followed by an elegant reception at The Vinoy Renaissance, a pristine resort nestled in our beautiful city of Saint Petersburg Florida and overlooking the Tampa Bay waters. This stunning resort opened at the height of the Gatsby era, and this couple wanted to incorporate the iconic elements of the roaring 20’s while keeping a classy a clean look. To bring their concept to life, we designed a simple, yet elegant Deco motif to display on the invitations and created a custom monogram to display on the custom made pocket-fold and belly band tag. To accentuate the 1920’s look, we created an intricate patterned design for the envelope liners. To incorporate the wedding colors, we printed the reception cards on a blush paper stock and paired each invitation suite with blush envelopes. As the finishing touches, we added gold foil touches throughout the suite including the envelope liners. We love how all of these elements came together so beautifully!

Imagine receiving these beauties in the mail!!! 🙂

Elegant Watercolor Palms Letterpress Wedding Invitations


Tropical_Watecolor_Invitations

Maggie and Michael exchanged their vows in the groom’s parents’ backyard overlooking the pristine waters of Tampa Bay, and their vision was to incorporate Florida’s tropical, outdoor vibe with a formal appeal into their wedding stationery.

The bride’s friend is an artist, so she created a beautiful palm tree watercolor design to capture Florida’s tropical beauty. We then designed the wording and the rest of the paper pieces in the invitation suite to coordinate with the main invite. For a elegant touch, we letterpress printed the invitation suite in forest green, and we paired each suite with a pretty pearlescent sand envelope.

We love how the modern calligraphy font, watercolor design, an elegant envelopes gave these invitations a natural and timeless appeal. These elegant watercolor palm wedding invitations are absolutely gorgeous!

Black-and-white Traditional Wedding Invitations


Black and White Elegant Wedding Invitations

Super excited to show you these gorgeous invitations we created for this couple’s black tie soirée! Subtle grandeur and simplicity are what best describe these beautiful black-and-white traditional wedding invitations! The bride wanted to make a statement with her invitations while keeping the overall look classy and timeless. To bring her vision to life, we created a clean and simple design focusing on an elegant script which highlighted the formality of the event. To incorporate a look of grandeur, we letterpress printed the invitations on larger-sized cotton paper, and we mounted them on custom-made pearlescent black pockets that we designed and assembled to perfectly fit each custom-sized invite. To maintain the formal appeal, we kept the tradition of having the invitations stuffed in inner and outer envelopes, and we embellished the inner envelopes with a pearlescent paper showcasing an elegant monogram.

We are obsessed with the simplicity and elegance of these black-and-white wedding invitations! It just proves that classic looks never go out of style! 🙂

Vintage-Floral Inspired Wedding Invitations


Photo1

I love, love, LOVE these vintage-floral inspired wedding invitations! As a stationery designer, one of my favorites things is when a couple really personalize their invitations to reflect their personalities and their wedding theme…and this bride and groom did just that! Rebecca + William hosted two events: an intimate ceremony with their closest friends and family members, and a bigger reception with a larger group of friends to celebrate their big day.

Since this couple needed a different invitations for each of the events, they decided to personalize the Gardenia and Script designs featured in our website Collection to showcase their wedding theme. The bride was inspired by both the decorative floral patterns found in vintage china sets and their love for gardening and beekeeping, and she wanted to incorporate these elements into her wedding paper goods. To bring her vision to life, we created a clean and simple design focusing on hand calligraphy and incorporated a beautiful floral design on the RSVP card and envelope liners. To further customize her suite, we hand-drew a honey bee and a butterfly and incorporated them into the Save-the-Date and RSVP card. We just love how all of these elements so beautifully reflect this couple’s personality and wedding style!

A Modern Twist On The Traditional Wedding Invitation


Pic_5

Modern meets traditional…

Check out this chic and classy wedding invitation we created for this sweet couple! This beautiful invite is another stylish customization of the Sydney design, which is featured in our Collection (the Collection is the perfect place for couples to obtain affordable letterpress wedding invitations while having the flexibility to personalize their invites).

This suite was the perfect fit for this couple’s contemporary and timeless affair. The bride + groom tied the knot at the Tampa Museum of Art, and they wanted to showcase the perfect balance of modern and traditional elements in their wedding invitation. To personalize this suite, Jaclyn + Robert chose a beautiful silver pebble paper for envelope liners (the pattern on the paper resembled some of the beautiful architectural details of the venue). For an elegant appeal, they picked a classy, semi-formal script to display their names, and silver-foiled both their names and the accompanying design. For the finishing touches, we letterpress- and foil-printed each invitation on a larger, thicker paper stock and added a pearlescent silver envelope for the RSVP cards. We also used the pebble paper as bellybands to tie each suite together and adorned them with pretty letterpress tags displaying the couple’s names.

We love how all of these subtle details gave a modern twist to the traditional wedding invitation!

  1. Textured Paper Good

Brides are forgoing the traditional flat, matte paper for their wedding stationery and are opting for papers that have a more organic feel and unique look. Get creative and branch out with cotton paper or deckled-edge paper!

  1. Metallic Elements

It’s all in the details, and this year foil stamping is here to stay! Adding metallic elements into your invitation is an awesome way to incorporate formality and glamour, creating a feeling of opulence while adding texture and uniqueness. While gold and silver foils are the most commonly used, we are seeing a rise in other less traditional metallic colors such as copper and rose gold. Whether you are going for a romantic, elegant look or a modern industrial theme, adding foil will take your invitations to the next level!

Modern Letterpress Wedding Invitations


We had so much fun designing Chelsea + Matt’s beautiful modern letterpress wedding invitations! The bride and groom wanted a clean, contemporary design with an artistic touch and a focus on modern typography. To bring their vision to life, we combined a simple typeface font with a modern calligraphy script. We created a design highlighting a symmetrical, minimalist look, and we incorporated an artistic touch by displaying their names in the fun calligraphic font on the cover of the invitation. To add texture and dimension, we letterpress printed the invitation on cotton paper and used parchment paper for the cover layer.  As a finishing touch, we paired each invitation with a gold leaf, pearlescent envelope and tastefully splattered black paint on the envelopes to add a whimsical and creative look. We just love how all of these elements came together so beautifully to create the perfect invitation for this contemporary couple!

Romantic, Elegant Letterpress-Wedding Invitations


We are in love with these romantic, elegant letterpress-wedding invitations! Inspired by her mother’s invitation, this bride wanted to keep her invitation classic and timeless. We created a clean design by displaying a simple yet elegant script font for the entire wording. We kept the simplicity of the design by incorporating a blind pressed border design and choosing to letterpress print each suite in one color – black ink – on soft white cotton paper. To add a romantic appeal, we embellished each envelope with a textured, metallic blush (with a hint of gold) envelope liner. Love the simplicity and classic elements of these romantic, elegant letterpress-wedding invitations!
