Wedding Stationery Inspiration: Gray and White

No matter what your interests are as you poke around the internet, I think there are some clear trends sprouting up everywhere. One of them being a shift back to the basics. Specifically color. I will say, even my own wardrobe has slowly become a sea of black and white. It’s definitely a simple way to make anything chic in an instant, from a tee and denim to an invitation suite. So I rounded up some of my favorite grey pieces that I think will last through the winter and stay a staple all year round. – Lauren

Wedding Stationery Inspiration: Brush Lettering

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

Lindsay and Ryan’s Illustrated Wedding Ceremony Programs

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!







Thanks Melissa!

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!

Wedding Stationery Inspiration: Jewel Tones

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

What are your thoughts on color for the fall and winter? Do you stick with muted tones or continue on with your favorites from the warmer months?

Wedding Stationery Inspiration: Camping in the Woods

Fall, to me, always brings thoughts of camping, roasting marshmallows, and rustic details. You might not think of planning your wedding around a theme that involves getting dirty and functioning with just the essentials. But that is what can make it so fun! Surprise your guests with simple pleasures that they enjoyed as kids or still do with their families. Take a cue from the treats, the crafting, and the quirky details from your own camping adventures. And if you just love the idea – but need a little inspiration – I rounded up some of my favorite stationery pieces to get you started! – Lauren
