One of the things we love most about stationery design is that it’s always changing, each wedding season bringing new trends and fresh ideas to incorporate into your invitations. We especially love the idea of taking a classic element, such as calligraphy, and adding a new twist to it, making it feel fun and unexpected. One of these little twists we have been head over heels in love with is featuring the names in large calligraphy or a calligraphy inspired font, creating a huge statement! It’s your big day so why shouldn’t your names be the highlight of the invitation design?
We love the idea of using beautiful foil colors to highlight seasonal motifs like stars and snowflakes, providing tons of sparkle and warmth to a wintery design.
Using neutral colors (think metallics, grays, and taupes!) and playing around with calligraphy or gorgeous script fonts can really set the tone for the big day. Don’t be afraid to add in some pattern and flourishes to create even more visual interest!
Taking cues from nature is never a bad idea and we love how these whimsical trees add an element of fun to this design.
Using a crisp color palette and bold fonts can really make a statement!
We love the idea of adding some pizzazz to your stationery, setting the mood for the vibrant celebration to come! Feel free to also break away from a neutral color palette and have some fun!
A blind printed pattern of snow will really soften the design and create the gentle, peaceful feeling of winter.
We all decorate our homes with various trimmings this time of year so why not add textural embellishments like belly bands to your design? We love a gorgeous laser cut pattern or a cloth band, adding loads of warmth to a classic design.
Now through the end of August, Bella Figura is offering 10% OFF any invitation order based off of a design done by their designer, Beth Barr. Beth’s work is classic, elegant and romantic.

You all know that we adore working with the stellar folks at Bella Figura; so it should come as no surprise to you that it just tickles me to see our clients’ work featured on their fabulous blog. We’ve had the great pleasure of working with a huge number of clients to create beautiful, customized Bella Figura invitations. Check out a few of our favorites that have been featured on their blog over the last few months.
Some of them are truly custom designs inspired by the overall aesthetic of the Bella Figura albums:
While others are customizations of some of Bella’s 300+ original designs. Check out how we turned the sweet Simple Dot design below
Into a winter wedding save the date featuring silver foil “snowflakes.”
We used the Camilla design below:
To craft the summer stunner below. I just love how the abstract pattern of the Camilla became ocean waves once we added a custom illustration of the coast of Maine (complete with a sweet heart over the wedding location).
And this take on the gorgeous Harbor Beach design struck the perfect cord for this nautical wedding:
As we always tell our clients, the sky’s the limit as to how much we can customize these incredible designs to reflect your vision. It’s such a fun process!
That’s all for now, folks. Stay cool and hope to see your smiling faces in the shop over the weekend!
