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!

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

Kelly’s Citrus-Inspired Bridal Shower Invitations

Today is such a special day: I get to share the invitations for my friend Kelly’s bridal shower! Kelly is both an old friend and one of my first contributors here at OSBP – but you might also know her from her own blog, Studio DIY. Kelly’s bridal shower invitations were the result of a collaboration between Isabel of 9th Letter Press and Kelly’s bridesmaid (and our mutual friend) Janice of Bellwether Events (who knows just a little thing or two about throwing a good party). The citrus-inspired invitation design is so much fun – and so Kelly!

From Isabel: Janice from Bellwether Events and I worked together to create a bridal shower invitation suite that’s fun, fresh and super bright. We went with citrus hues like key lime, grapefruit, and lemon. I LOVE all these pretty vibrant colors together! Kelly had no idea that 9th Letter Press was behind the invitations as Janice wanted to surprise her. I only wish I could have seen her face when Kelly opened the invitation!

Janice enclosed the invitations in a box with a citrus patterned liner, fun stamps and sugared tropical flavored candy. The suite included the invitation, an information sheet, RSVP card and envelope, bingo game set, menu, placemat, thank you cards, and all the fixings to make the box look fabulous.

From Kelly: I am such a huge fan of 9th Letter Press. I was floored when I got my shower invitation in the mail and realized Isabel was behind them! It was such a happy surprise! I told my bridesmaids that I love a good theme through and through, and Isabel’s design set the stage for quite the “Pucker Up” bash! I was getting calls and emails from family and friends gushing about every last detail… and I can’t blame them! It’s a total dream come true to have one of Isabel’s designs just for me!

Ana + Liam’s Soft Floral Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday everyone! I thought I’d start the week with these beautiful soft floral wedding invitations from Nicole of Umama – inspired by the bride’s request for a classic invitation with a floral print! Nicole carried the floral elements through the entire suite, from the invitations to the rehearsal dinner menu and other day-of elements. So pretty!

From NicoleFor this wedding suite, Ana wanted a classic invitation with a classic floral illustration. Ana planned to include touches of copper and cobalt blue china with ivory, fuchsia, and burgundy flowers in her wedding and also wanted to include a floral print in her invitations and day-of wedding stationery.

I wanted to give Ana a little bit of everything on her design wish list: the cobalt blue, the florals, and a touch of copper. I love the look of layered florals, to the point of abundance. However, I didn’t want to overwhelm the actual invitation. Our solution was to create a piece that would serve as a wrap to the invitation, reply card, and rehearsal dinner note.

On this folder, we were able to go floral crazy bringing in layered florals and lots of that cobalt blue. The invitation revealed a much cleaner and classic floral design, so as not to overcrowd the type below.

A mirrored floral pattern adorn the rehearsal dinner note and menu card, tying all the pieces together. For that touch of copper, we created a set of tags to be used at the venue, with copper rivets and a ribbon crafted from spiraled copper wiring. We used Dutch Felt 100lb paper in Creamery from Paper Presentation. It is one of my favorite go-to papers for texture.
