Kelly’s Citrus-Inspired Bridal Shower Invitations

Today is such a special day: I get to share the invitations for my friend Kelly’s bridal shower! Kelly is both an old friend and one of my first contributors here at OSBP – but you might also know her from her own blog, Studio DIY. Kelly’s bridal shower invitations were the result of a collaboration between Isabel of 9th Letter Press and Kelly’s bridesmaid (and our mutual friend) Janice of Bellwether Events (who knows just a little thing or two about throwing a good party). The citrus-inspired invitation design is so much fun – and so Kelly!

From Isabel: Janice from Bellwether Events and I worked together to create a bridal shower invitation suite that’s fun, fresh and super bright. We went with citrus hues like key lime, grapefruit, and lemon. I LOVE all these pretty vibrant colors together! Kelly had no idea that 9th Letter Press was behind the invitations as Janice wanted to surprise her. I only wish I could have seen her face when Kelly opened the invitation!

Janice enclosed the invitations in a box with a citrus patterned liner, fun stamps and sugared tropical flavored candy. The suite included the invitation, an information sheet, RSVP card and envelope, bingo game set, menu, placemat, thank you cards, and all the fixings to make the box look fabulous.

From Kelly: I am such a huge fan of 9th Letter Press. I was floored when I got my shower invitation in the mail and realized Isabel was behind them! It was such a happy surprise! I told my bridesmaids that I love a good theme through and through, and Isabel’s design set the stage for quite the “Pucker Up” bash! I was getting calls and emails from family and friends gushing about every last detail… and I can’t blame them! It’s a total dream come true to have one of Isabel’s designs just for me!

Joy’s DIY Tea Bag Bridal Shower Invitations

These DIY bridal shower invitations are so creative – and I love the sentiment behind them! As a bridesmaid in her cousin’s wedding, Joy Ang wanted to create a memorable invitation experience for guests at her cousin’s bridal shower. After a bit of thought and experimentation, Joy came up with these tea bag invitations that fit perfectly with the shower theme!

From JoyLast year I was a bridesmaid for my cousin’s wedding and I got the chance to design her bridal shower invitations. The theme was an Alice in Wonderland tea party, and that’s what led me to thinking about tea bag-shaped invitations. However, I wanted them to have a little more impact on the guests, so I thought it would be really fun to make the invitations hold tea leaves that you could brew and drink.

After a couple of prototypes, I created these invitations by printing on vellum paper, which allowed the tea leaves to show through. I then assembled the invitations similarly to how you would with an actual tea bag, using the tag at the end of the string as instructions for brewing the leaves. This was such an enjoyable project to work on and I’m so glad I was able to make it for my cousin and her shower!

Jennifer’s Floral Letterpress Bridal Shower Invitations

These floral bridal shower invitations from Dara of Rafftruck Designs are making me so happy on a cold and dreary day! Created for a summer bridal shower, Dara mixed whimsical design elements and a patterned envelope liner with a formal invitation layout. Perfectly sweet and simple, and full of color!

From DaraFor this summer bridal shower, I was asked to create something that was fresh and fun, but still with a classic style in mind. A whimsical flower paired with bright pinks and oranges brought the invitation to life, while a formal layout kept things traditional.

Pulling from the layered style of the flower, I created a scalloped envelope liner to round out the design. The invitations were all letterpress printed on 100% bright white cotton paper which added a nice airiness to the set.

From JaymeeMy good friend Ann-Marie is getting married in a few weeks, so my fellow bridesmaids and I threw her a shower to celebrate her upcoming nuptials! Once we decided on a gold and glitz theme for the shower, I got to work on creating invitations and paper goods to reflect that aesthetic.

I hand lettered “Ann-Marie” and “XOXO” using gouache to use on the invitations, the envelope liners, and the coasters. I had so much fun putting all of it together and added in sequins to each envelope for an extra [sparkly] something.

Heather’s Hand Lettered Bridal Shower Invitations

Happy Monday everyone! I thought we’d start the week with these beautiful invitations from designer Christine Wisnieski for her sister’s bridal shower. Christine paired gray and white invitations with a gorgeous marbled paper envelope liner. Christine hand painted the text at the top of the invitation, which was digitally printed (in white ink!) on dark gray paper. So pretty!

From ChristineEarlier this month, my mother and I had the pleasure of hosting a wedding shower toasting the soon-to-be bride – my sister Heather – and groom. The afternoon took place at a cozy little wine bar and was filled with love, Moscato, and laughter.

The invitation featured hand-painted type, a marbled envelope liner, and a custom candle favor package for guests. The invitation was printed digitally on a smoke gray paper stock (some typography required nearly six passes of toner!).
