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

We’re big fans of cocktail hour here on Oh So Beautiful Paper. At a wedding celebration, the cocktail hour kicks off the post-ceremony reception, but that doesn’t mean you need to spend a lot of money to make a big statement. Just a few details, like personalized napkins or coasters, are a fun way to incorporate your personal style, stories, and tastes. Here are a few fun cocktail hour ideas for your wedding! – Annie

Wedding Stationery Inspiration: Creative Wedding Guestbooks

A wedding is a once in a lifetime event, and one of the few times that you’ll have all of your loved ones and favorite people gathered together in the same place. A guestbook is the perfect way to remember all the people that came together to celebrate your big day – and they’re a great memento to look back on long after the wedding. Here are a few fun and creative wedding guestbooks to put a twist on the traditional guestbook. – Annie
