We are super excited to show you these beautiful Florida coastal inspired invitations that we created for Carrie + Aaron! Carrie wanted to incorporate the botanical beauty of the coast of Florida with an elegant art deco design. Her vision was to fuse formal elements with fun, playful touches. To bring her vision to life, we created a simple watercolor flamingos motif on the invitations and infused an elegant feel by adding a beautiful, gold-foiled art deco border to the invitations and response cards. For the “Weekend Itinerary” cards, we created a fun blue pattern inspired by the beautiful blue china she will have as part of her wedding décor. To add a Florida-botanical feel, we created a beautiful watercolor palms design to display on the envelope liners and the additional enclosure cards, which we printed on a beautiful blush paper to coordinate with the watercolor. Lastly, we paired each invitation suite with a sand pearlescent envelope, and, as a final detail, we added custom postage stamps that perfectly complimented the design. We absolutely love how these elements all came together so beautifully!
We are super excited to see Lauren + Shami’s Sikh wedding ceremony featured in Maharani Wedding blog! We loved working with these couple on designing their wedding invitations for their three-day celebration. Check out their blog for more beautiful pictures taken by Kimberly Photography of their colorful and lavish Indian wedding organized by Tracie Domino Events
We had the pleasure of working with Jackie + Ryan’s beautiful modern letterpress wedding invitations! This bride + groom wanted to incorporate a modern design, a navy color palete and a mix of neutral colors (champagne and white white) into their wedding invitations. To bring their vision to life, we played with geometric patterns focusing on the hexagon shape as our main inspiration since the bride really loved the idea of a hexagon pattern. To achieve a clean look, we blind pressed the hexagon design and letterpress printed the wording in navy ink. As a finishing touch, we mounted each invitation in a pearlescent pocket-fold to incorporate the champagne color and elegant feel. We just love how all the elements came together so beautifully!
Your Save-the-Date are shipped and delivered, everyone is full of excitement about your upcoming wedding and talking about how awesome your Save-the-Date look! Now is time to create your invitations!
Your invitations set the tone of your event! They are the first glimpse your guests get into seeing what you have been working hard on for the past several months / years while planning your big day! There are so many ways to incorporate your wedding style and colors into your invitations. You have spent so much time and money into infusing your personalities and love story into your wedding, that we want your invitations to reflect that.
Here are just a couple of ideas you can incorporate your style / personality into your paper goods.
Hand drawing design. You can highlight elements of your wedding by incorporating some hand drawn motifs. You can do this on your invitation itself, or on an enclosure card or even in the envelope liner. There is nothing more personal than adding an artistic touch to your paper goods.
Envelope Liners. Envelope liners are a fun way to add in some personality or even a bit more of your color palette. I always feel an envelope liner just finishes the look of your invitation suite. I especially love when a bride choses to go simple and clean on the invitation but adds in a little but of design on the liner.
Patterns. Bold or subtle, adding a pattern to your invites adds a lot of depth and texture into your wedding invitations. They can make your invitations look beautiful and unique.
Paper Stock. Another option to incorporate your colors is through your paper stock. You can either alternate paper colors or you can incorporate a paper layer. Whether you want something bold or subtle, the option on paper colors are endless! This is another great way to pull in your color palette.
These are just a few ways to pull in your style and personality into your paper goods. We love a good love story and love getting creative on who we can pull your wedding style all together on your paper goods. Let us know if you have any questions or if you want to set up a consultation to discuss your wedding invitations details.
We absolutely loved working with Katie + Scott! It is always fun for us when a couple gives us creative freedom to design their perfect custom wedding invitation suite. Katie + Scott were getting married at Palmetto Riverside, a beautifully restored bed and breakfast located in a historical town by the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Their wish was to incorporate a botanical, open-air feel with an elegant touch onto their wedding stationery. To bring their vision to life we created a simple design displaying a bold, yet classy script. To personalize their suite, we incorporated their engagement photo as an envelope liner. These Al Fresco inspired wedding invitations are truly beautiful and romantic!
Last week, we talked about different Save-the-Date design ideas, and now we are going to give you some Save-the-Date wording ideas. Whether you want something traditional or casual, we’ve got you covered!First, let’s talk about what information you MUST include in your Save-the-Dates.
– Your and your fiance’s names (of course!)
– Your wedding date
– Your wedding location (just the city and state)
– A notation letting your guests know that a formal invitation will follow
Many brides are now starting to include some additional information on their Save-the-Date to better accommodate their guests. Here are the most common things that we have seen.
– Your wedding website
– Accommodations information. This is particularly important if you have a lot of guests coming from out of town, the website is not up and running, and when you want to make sure your guests have plenty of time to make traveling arrangements.
– Event Timeline. If it’s a destination wedding, you may want to give your guests a brief idea about the weekend events or activities that might occur.
What NOT to include in your Save-the-Date.
– Your venue name
– The ceremony or reception time
– Registry information
Now that you know what information is “must-have” on your Save-the-Dates, we have put together a few examples to show you how you can incorporate the details mentioned above into your Save-the-Date while adding a personal touch.
TRADITIONAL OR FORMAL
FUN & PLAYFUL
We hope this post makes wording your Save the Date easy and fun! Want more wording ideas? Let us know in the “comments” section or contact us directly and we will be happy to assist you!
Alyssa + Jesse wanted a botanical, fairytale feel for their wedding invitations. To bring their vision to life, we designed a watercolor motif of beautiful greenery and displayed it on the top and bottom borders of the invitation. To incorporate a romantic feel, we printed the enclosure cards in beautiful blush paper and printed the invitations in sand letterpress ink. As a finishing detail, we wrapped each invitation suite with twine and baby’s breath flowers, and we embellished the gold leaf pearlescent envelopes with beautiful, organic-feel envelope liners. These garden inspired letterpress wedding invitations are perfect for a romantic wedding or an outdoors celebration!
Alyssa + Nathaniel really personalized their wedding stationery by incorporating a beautiful watercolor drawing created by the bride’s grandmother. This couple tied the knot at the beautiful Fedredicksburg Square historic mansion, so we decided to incorporate her grandmother’s watercolor painting of the venue and floral design into her Save-the-Date. To fully achieve a vintage feel, we letterpress printed the wording on a beautiful soft white cotton paper stock. For the wedding invitations, we incorporated the floral design only and letterpress printed the wording on the invitations to keep the vintage feel. To add an elegant touch, we gold foil their names and paired the invitation with a pearlescent gray envelope. This couple watercolor Save-the-Date and wedding invitations are a true keepsake!! What a special way to include grandma in the wedding process!
Kickoff for the 2016 National Championship game Alabama vs. Clemson is happening tonight, and we think there’s no better day than today to post this fun and beautiful Save the Date Pop-Up card! Aside from being big Alabama fans, Carrie + Brett have a unique romantic story – something you would only see in the movies! These two lovebirds met on a Southwest Airplane in 2014 and instantly fell for each other! It was truly “Love at First Flight!”
I am a little bit obsessed with this couple’s Christian-Sikh wedding! We loved working with Lauren + Shami on designing their wedding invitations for their three-day celebration. Here are few pictures of their beautiful, colorful, and lavish soiree! Kimberly Photography did an amazing job capturing all the amazing details of this couple’s special moment.
