Wedding Stationery Inspiration: Creative Garlands

Garlands are such a beautiful way to add color and texture to your wedding day. No matter your wedding theme or budget, there’s a garland that fits right in! And so many of our favorite garlands are made from paper – which just makes us love them even more! From hand stained coffee filters that look like flowers to papel picado banners to modern geometric triangles, here are some ideas to get you started. – Annie

Wedding Stationery Inspiration: Pantone Color of the Year 2017

Happy 2017 everyone! And what better way to kick off the new year than with Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017: Greenery! How are you feeling about our newest Color of the Year? Are we feeling yay or nay? We tend to favor darker shades of forest green and tropical blue-greens here on OSBP, but this bright and almost citrusy green would be perfect in a spring or summer wedding! Annie

Wedding Stationery Inspiration: Fall Color Palette

Fall weddings are my favorite. From earthy textures and moody fall hues, there are so many natural elements to draw inspiration from. And when it comes to color combinations, the options are endless: jewel tones, rusty neutrals and metallics, deep berry tones and shades of red, dark greens, deep indigo blue, and so much more. I hope you get some ideas from these fall color palettes! –Annie
