Kristen + Tim’s Hermès-Inspired Wedding Invitations and Save the Dates

Any time I hear that a couple wanted something they’d never seen before for their wedding invitations or save the dates – I know the results are bound to be good! These wedding invitations and save the dates from Melissa at Atheneum Creative are elegant and classically beautiful, but also innovative – starting with the letterpress printed SILK save the dates!


From MelissaKristen and Tim wanted something they had never seen before for their save the dates – always a great challenge! We letterpress printed their text on silk and layered it with a letterpress printed die cut cover with a custom pattern inspired by a Hermès scarf.



Their invitation picked up all the elements of the save the date, incorporating the silk fabric into a bellyband with a die cut logo tag.



For their wedding logo, Kristen wanted a monogram that resembled her favorite Hermès bracelet. We created a wedding logo/monogram with the letter “S” that emulated the rope pattern on her bracelet. In addition to the invitations and save the dates, the logo was used on the reception floor and ceremony backdrop.




Thanks Melissa!

Maggie + Steven’s Neon Split Fountain Wedding Invitations

I love colorful wedding invitations, so it’s no surprise that I’m a fan of these neon split fountain wedding invitations from photographer Maggie Winters. Maggie designed and hand lettered the invitations, then letterpress printed them herself (under the tutelage of Old City Press) using a neon split fountain technique!


From Maggie: I designed these myself (mostly hand lettered) and we printed them at Old City Press in Alexandria, Virginia. Pete at Old City Press helped us to print our own invitations, teaching us how to letterpress print and then setting us free with his amazing letterpress! We went with a neon color roll and some blind embossing of the confetti bits around the edges. It was really fun to try a bunch of different printing styles.



We also included a couple dinosaurs in the photos, they were our cake toppers. We made an intro video for our new business (Pop Wed Co) late last year with the same dinosaurs, so we thought it would be fun to bring them back to life in our wedding.






Thanks Maggie!

Elise + Paul’s Mint and Navy Calligraphy Wedding Invitations

These classic-meets-vintage wedding invitations from designer and calligrapher Holly Hollon are just so incredibly gorgeous. From the beautiful calligraphy flourishes, to the mint and navy color palette, to the playful bumblebee incorporated throughout the suite, each detail fits together perfectly!


From Holly: Elise and Paul had a classic spring wedding here in Birmingham, Alabama. Elise wanted a classic meets vintage look for her wedding suite which evolved into combination of mint, navy, stripes, and flora embellished calligraphy.



For her wedding logo, we found inspiration from a vintage French laurel wreath. I incorporated the couples initials into the hand illustrated design along with acorns and a bee. The bee became a playful design element in the suite.




For Elise’s wedding program we used the bee on a wax seal which secured a ribbon to the program. Each program was hand stitched with mint ribbon. I love these hand crafted details which so care and specialty to her wedding paper.




Thanks Holly!

Lauren + Blake’s Modern Mint Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday everyone! For those of you who might be dragging a bit this morning thanks to the time change (like me!), I thought we’d start the week with these effervescent wedding invitations from Dejlige Creative (pronounced “dye-lee” – a Danish word meaning “lovely” or “delightful”). With champagne bubbles and antique gold details on mint green paper, this invitation suite is the perfect way to welcome spring!


From StephanieLauren and Blake were looking for a breath of fresh air with clean and crisp mint green letterpress invitations for their classic spring wedding. Champagne bubbles dot the invitation cards and cleverly fill the european pointed flap envelopes. Accents of antique gold add a timeless touch to these modern, fresh invitations.





Thanks Stephanie!

Jennifer + Michael’s Hand Lettered Gold and White Wedding Invitations

These elegant wedding invitations from Alex of Goodheart Design incorporate delicate blind impression details, whimsical hand lettering, and a whole lot of gold ink! Simple, sophisticated, and absolutely beautiful.


From AlexThis was a super fun invitation to create! It was for a friend who wanted something simple and elegant with a little bit of a Spanish twist. All three pieces were letterpress printed by Czar Press on 110# pearl Lettra paper with gold ink for the lettering and wording and blind pressed (no ink) vines. The blind pressed vines added just enough Spanish detail without overdoing it.


The bride chose envelopes in three different colors, which was an amazing choice, and I hand addressed each outer and inner envelope with gold ink. I love being able to incorporate my hand lettering into the invitation as well as on the envelopes – I think it adds a beautiful consistency to whole suite.





Thanks Alex!
