Romantic copper & blush nautical invitations

Elizabeth and Travis came to us looking for the perfect stationery to set the tone for their elegant, ocean-side soiree in historic Newport, RI.

A romantic palette of blush, copper and crisp navy combined with some classic roman fonts and flowing script came together beautifully in this nautical suite. We used color layering, a custom map envelope liner and a fun metallic twine wrap with a tag to give little pops of fun to this traditional design. The end result was luxe and stunning and gave guests a sweet taste of the seaside fun to come!

 

 

Currently Coveting: Large Calligraphy Inspired Designs

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?

Winter Wedding Invitation Inspiration

Happy December everyone! We swear it was just yesterday that we were raking leaves in the backyard and now we’re listening to holiday tunes while making our December to-do lists. This time of year is for getting together with friends and family and celebrating the joy of the season. All of the warm cozy feelings of the holidays have us dreaming up fun and festive winter inspired invitation designs, perfect for any wedding this time of year!

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.

Watercolor Wishes

We’ve been seeing lots of watercolor inspired design recently and we’re just loving it. The dreamy variation of color and tone, the natural, organic edges and soft hues of this lovely technique make us swoon.

From the watercolor washed business cards we did for Nole at Oh So Beautiful Paper to gorgeous wedding invitations to sweet greeting cards, watercolor is making a splash in all parts of the stationery world.

Dive on in!
