Since I’m still walking the aisles of the National Stationery Show, I thought I’d leave you with some gorgeous new wedding invitations from The Creative Parasol! You probably remember their awesome German beer-inspired wedding invitations and fun carnival-inspired invitations, so I was thrilled when Ana sent over some photos of their brand new readymade collection. Check out more below!
From Ana: We’re so excited to introduce our new Readymade Wedding Collection! Offering all the charm of our custom design at a fraction of the cost, we’ve worked to combine both traditional and modern elements for designs that feel at once fresh and timeless, in a variety of styles.
The collection currently features seven distinct wedding invitation suites with matching custom address and thank you stamps. We’ll be adding more options (like programs, menus and tons of fun day-of stuff) and even more suite designs this summer!

The ladies of Antiquaria (one of our DIY contributors here on Oh So Beautiful Paper!) just released a brand new (and a la carte) letterpress wedding invitation collection, and I’m thrilled to help share the beautiful designs today! The letterpress collection features some of Antiquaria’s most popular designs, from calligraphy invitation suites to equestrian and western-inspired designs.
Each letterpress design is also compatible with Antiquaria’s custom rubber stamp collection. The letterpress collection is available a la carte, so you can mix and match design styles within an invitation suite – or even mix letterpress with rubber stamps. So fun!
You can check out the full collection right here! Congrats ladies!

Spring may still be playing a bit of hide and seek, but these days I’m craving anything colorful, floral, or both! So I was thrilled when Ashley from Fine Day Press sent over a few photos of her beautiful new watercolor wedding invitation collection. Ashley mixed modern typography with nature-inspired watercolor patterns, including several botanical designs. So pretty!
From Ashley: The new invitation collection combines lushly textured watercolor illustrations and modern typography (both of which can mix & match), all printed on thick cotton paper. The designs are flat-printed so they’re a bit easier on the budget than letterpress without sacrificing quality! Overall, the collection has a modern sensibility combined with the romantic feel of watercolor.

We had the pleasure of featuring Meredith from Hazel Wonderland in our monthly calligraphy column back in September, so I was thrilled when Meredith sent over her latest wedding invitation collection! The collection is inspired by nature and the concept of inner beauty – the perfect complements for Meredith’s lovely calligraphy.
From Meredith: I wanted to capture the concepts of true love, inner beauty, and passion from within in these designs. Inspired by nature, travel, and beauty, the wedding collection features a natural palette, earth friendly materials, watercolor, and calligraphy.

I’ve been fortunate enough to meet some really talented people through this little ol’ blog, and Jessica from Budget Savvy Bride is definitely high up on that list. Jess is a graphic designer in addition to running a fabulous blog, and she just opened a new design studio called Jessica Bishop Paperie. The new collection includes a range of colorful and patterned wedding invitations and paper goods for couples of any budget, and I’m thrilled to share a few of my favorites below. Congrats Jess!
From Jessica: I created this collection for stylish yet savvy brides – each design is infused with color, pattern and gorgeous typography. I believe that every fabulous event invitation should make an impression. Each invitation suite includes a brightly colored envelope, sure to delight wedding guests from the moment they open their mailbox!
Professionally printed invitation suites are available in either a standard or luxe paper option, or printable files are also available for purchase for the DIY or budget-conscious bride. A variety of add-ons are also available to completely customize the invitations including wrap-around labels, printed envelope liners, and more.
