Ah, #monsteramonday! I’ve been saving these, just so I could use that hashtag on my Instagram post! It’s been quite the task, as this design is one of my favorites!
When I saw these giant monstera leaves in a pack of watercolor illustrations I recently purchased, I knew they would make an awesome statement on an invitation! Equally perfect for a South Beach wedding (can you imagine these with a pink envelope?!) or a foliage-filled urban loft, these invites are sure to get your guests excited for the big day.
We interrupt your regular programming for a post about a real wedding—happening today!
You saw the preview of Abi and Spencer’s gorgeous save the date last winter, and now I’m excited to share the rest of their stationery!
For their invitation design, I expanded on their Art Nouveau theme and added a few special touches to create a truly stand out suite.
I’ve been wanting to use petal envelopes for a while now, so I was very excited about these gorgeous deep blue beauties! Topped with an antique gold faux wax seal, they are the perfect introduction to these beautiful invitations.
About halfway through production of the invitations, the bride’s mother ordered a set of my Advice for the Bride & Groom coasters to have on hand for the reception. I love her thoughtfulness!
I used the same beautiful sparkling gold paper for the invitations and my gorgeous cotton stock printed with coordinating gold ink for the invitations. Mixing papers and materials adds an artistic flair to this luxurious, historically inspired invitation suite. I love how it all came together!
This suite turns the traditional black and white wedding invitation on its head. Reversing the formal script and classic typography to white on an abstract black and gray watercolor background creates a stand-out piece that is both elegant and alluring.
Pair this suite with a white or cream envelope to keep things neutral, or add an accent color like this stunning cobalt blue. Either way, you can’t get more chic than these!
Equally perfect for a garden affair or an indoor artistic venue, these hand-painted anemone invites are one of my favorites. Pairing them with informal brush lettering and avocado envelopes makes them not-too-sweet, allowing your guests to appreciate their painterly quality!
Is there anything more romantic than a wedding filled with lush flowers? City or country, modern or traditional, there’s always a flower that’s perfect for your big day. They’re also super fun to paint and design with!
I started to get back into watercolor painting again after a bit of a hiatus for a client this summer. She went with a different option (to be revealed next spring!), but I’m still absolutely in love with these loose pink flowers! Artistic and modern while still being decidedly pretty, the loose style of painting interacts perfectly with the sage watercolor wash featured on the rest of the suite. Pairing them with a lime envelope creates a fresh feel that would be perfect for a spring wedding!
