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!

Top 10 Wedding Stationery Trends for 2017


If you’ve been following our blog, you’ve definitely heard me say that your wedding invitations set the tone of your event. Receiving a beautiful suite in the mail shows your guests that they are special and gives them a glimpse into the look and feel of your big day!

With so many newly engaged brides looking for inspiration, it only seemed fit to share with you what we believe are the Top 10 Wedding Stationery Trends for 2017:

  1. Greenery

Organic, simple, creative, and playful seems to be the common theme this year. The Pantone color of the year is “greenery,” and we are already seeing lots of gorgeous wedding inspiration with lush greenery as the focal point in the décor. Brides are loving the idea of incorporating botanical elements in beautiful letterpress or flat-printed watercolor designs.

  1. Watercolor

Soft washed, vibrant abstract, vintage floral…you name it! Watercolor designs are at the top of the “wedding favorites” list for 2017. Hand-drawn artistry will add a very personal and unique touch to your wedding stationery. Think about the nice surprise your guests will have when they see your gorgeous invite in the midst of boring mail! They will rave about your invitations for years to come! 🙂

  1. Floral Designs

While minimalist designs will take more of a front seat in this year’s wedding trends, the big floral motif will also be high on the list. If you are going for a vintage-boho theme, then big, illustrated floral designs might just be the perfect look for your invitations.

  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!

  1. Hand-Drawn and Watercolor Tropical Foliage

As Floridians, we might be a bit biased, but we totally love this new trend! Watercolor tropical foliage designs are a modern and creative twist on the traditional beach-inspired wedding invitations. If you are having your wedding at a tropical location, incorporating the exotic beauty of a hand-drawn, watercolor design is the perfect way to add some pizzazz and personality to your invitations!

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!

Botanical Letterpress & Foil Wedding Invitations


Super excited to show you these botanical letterpress & foil wedding invitations!

With “Greenery” being the Pantone color of the year, beautiful, organic designs with a focus on lush green elements will be center stage in the wedding world in 2017. With that in mind, we decided to feature this beautiful customization of our Tori design showcasing a beautiful combination of elegance and natural beauty through rich green and gold color palettes. To accentuate the organic aspects of this suite, we letterpress printed some of the enclosure cards and part of the invitation in forest green ink color on a soft-white, textured cotton paper. For an elegant touch, we incorporated a forest green accent paper and printed the accommodations information in gold foil. Lastly, we embellished each envelope with pretty liners displaying an illustrated foliage motif.

We absolutely love how these elements came together so beautiful to create these gorgeous botanical, letterpress & gold foil wedding invitations!
