Congratulations to Regina and Gavin, who got married today in Nashville! Their wedding invitations are a perfect example of starting with a ready-made design and customizing it to truly make it your own.
In this case, that personalization came in the form of custom illustrations. Though she loved my Abstract Forrest invitation design, Regina wanted to incorporate the paper star lanterns that will grace her reception, so I gladly sketched them up and used them on some of the enclosures. I loved how they turned out so much I’m thinking about making a new ready-made design solely focused on them!
Another fun touch Regina wanted to add to this suite is the idea of having guests include song requests on their RSVP, which she fell in love with when looking at my Boho Floral wedding suite. It’s a great way to engage guests even before the party, and help your DJ be prepared!
Well friends, we’re at the end of my month of weddings and I’ve saved the best for last!
Remember Krista and Chris’ gorgeous letterpress wedding invitations from earlier this year? After the big day, I reached out to their photographer, Sara Smile about sharing a few of the gorgeous photos (which she did, so stay tuned!).
She also mentioned a romantic Brothers Grimm-themed fairy tale styled wedding photo shoot she was working on. After checking out her inspiration board, I offered to design stationery for the shoot—and my new favorite invitations were born!
I started by breaking out the watercolors to paint deep burgundy peonies, mauve anemones and snapdragons, and the palest blush poppies, along with sticks and leaves to fill out the arrangements. They might be my favorite illustrations I’ve created so far!
I’ve been wanting to create a looser typography design and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity! I love this new calligraphic typeface, it’s almost as beautiful as Kelsey Malie’s beautiful envelope calligraphy!
Speaking of envelopes, did you spot these custom-lined envelopes? This is the first time I’ve ordered them and they are AMAZING! They’ll be another a la carte option in my shop, but in the mean time feel free to get in touch for custom envelopes!
Order these invites in my etsy shop and stay tuned for the stunning photos from Sara’s shoot!
Well you guys, I’ve been talking about it for months, but offset printed wedding invitations have finally hit my etsy shop! And since I’m traveling most of this month for weddings across the country, I thought this was the perfect time to launch them!
Since every couple has different stationery needs, I’ve structured the wedding section of my shop in such a way that you start with the invitation and then add on whatever enclosures and extras you’d like. The other great thing about that is that the invitations alone are really affordable—so you can have them customized for other events! Just get in touch.
I fell in love with these hand painted purple graphics from Create the Cut as soon as I saw them. Since they were part of a giveaway and quite a few designers have them, I wanted to make sure to create something unique than just placing them on the page, and these chic invites are the result!
And remember how I mentioned choosing which elements you need to make your wedding stationery suite complete? In addition to the RSVP and other enclosures, you can also add a coordinating save the date or menu for a cohesive look from start to finish.
