Today there are so many calligraphers adding brush lettering to their menu of offerings. There are even some really great artists producing it digitally with photoshop brushes on their computers. With all of these different artists emerging and changing up the style they started in, there are so many different options for beautiful brush lettering in your wedding stationery. From watercolor to acrylic, you can find a modern and casual or traditional and formal style that fits your style. Here are a few of my favorites! – Lauren

Are you feeling inspired by brush lettering for your own wedding?
We saw Lindsay and Ryan’s beautiful wedding invitations from Melissa of Atheneum Creative earlier this morning – and Melissa was also kind enough to share the ceremony programs that she designed for this beautiful wedding! We so rarely get a peek into a full ceremony program so I thought it was worth highlighting in case any of you are on the hunt for some ideas and inspiration. Melissa created custom portrait illustrations for the entire bridal party and illustrated the order of the ceremony. So fun!
Atheneum Creative is a member of the Designer Rolodex – you can see more of their beautiful work right here or visit the real invitations gallery for more wedding invitation ideas!

Over the past few weeks I’ve developed a major thing for ceramics. I’ve always had a soft spot for pretty plates and mugs, but as I’ve discovered more independent artists making hand crafted ceramic goods that soft spot has grown into a full on obsession. Their Instagram accounts also tend to be some of my favorites, fueling the OMG I have to have that right now please feelings even further. Today I thought I’d highlight a few favorites!

As the colder months approach, most think it’s time to put color to the side for a while. Maybe you want to save the neon details for a spring or summer wedding, but why not incorporate your favorite colors in a deeper shade using jewel tones? Were you hoping for a bit of pink in your winter wedding? Try a berry shade. Or maybe a pop of green? Try emerald. Here are some of my favorite jewel tone stationery pieces for your wedding day! - Lauren
