Laura + Thomas’s Modern Kraft and Chevron Stripe Wedding Invitations

Laura’s DIY kraft paper save the dates were easily one of my favorite features from 2011, so it’s no surprise that I’m equally in love with her wedding invitations! Laura continued the kraft paper and chevron stripe elements from her save the dates, adding in beautiful letterpress printed pieces and a custom map printed on butcher block paper. Just gorgeous!

From LauraDesigning my own wedding invitations was the most challenging part of planning our wedding. Our wedding style was vin­tage mod­ern with neu­tral col­ors and tex­tures. I wanted to use a variety of paper colors, weights and different printing techniques. The main invitation was letterpress printed by Sensura Studio.

My sister and I hand screen printed the chevron pattern on the inside of the kraft envelope to match our save the dates. Instead of buying new postage stamps, I used all vintage ones from my grandma’s collection.

The other pieces I printed myself on my trusty home printer. My favorite part is the map, which I printed on text weight butcher paper from French Paper Co.

I used the leftover paper for our ceremony programs (which were sewn together), placecards, menus, etc. We had little jars of natural honey for wedding favors and I used my vintage typewriter to make tags and labels.
