Ngaio + Julian’s Hand Lettered Ombre Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday! Our first set of wedding invitations this week come to us from Sydney, Australia-based designer Ngaio Parr – for her own destination wedding in Los Angeles! Ngaio’s colorful poster-size invitations feature split-fountain (aka ombre) screen printing in bright pink and orange along with hand lettering and edge painting. Playful mad lib RSVP cards provide the perfect finishing touch!

From Ngaio: Although we live in Sydney we were married in Los Angeles, and wanted our invitations to be as bright and fun as the city itself. The invitations are designed and hand lettered by myself and screen printed as a split fountain into A3-sized posters by Half Hazard Press.

Calligraphic lettering on the envelopes and a custom address stamp helped make the envelopes as exciting as their contents. The most fun element of these invitations has been receiving some of the ‘colourfully’ filled out response cards.

Sarah + Brian’s Western Watercolor Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday everyone! I’m on my way up to NYC for the Winter NYNOW market (you can follow the show along with me via Instagram!), but I’m excited to start the week with a pair of really gorgeous wedding invitations! First up, a fun invitation suite from AllieRuth Design that mixes a western vibe with romantic details like calligraphy and floral patterns. Such a wonderful combination!

Western Watercolor Wedding Invitations AllieRuth Design Sarah + Brians Western Watercolor Wedding Invitations

From AllieWe had SO much creating this suite. Sarah and Brian really allowed me to run with their ideas and put something together that stands out among the AllieRuth portfolio. We worked with Mama’s Sauce, our favorite rock star printers, to take on the unique task of letterpress printing a blind impression woodgrain texture and then screen printing in metallic ink.

The reception took place on a beautiful ranch, inside of a horse barn. The couple wanted to incorporate that western vibe in a subtle way, so we mixed a funky retro font with my calligraphy, and brought in soft details with the lace band, watercolors, and floral envelope liner.

Beth + Tomu’s Woodsy Screen Printed Walnut Wedding Invitations

Nikkol from Peter Loves Jane sent over these lovely invitations for a wedding at the Sundance Resort! The bride and groom wanted to evoke the woodsy feeling of their wedding venue without being too rustic. Nikkol came up with the perfect solution: walnut wood veneer with white screen printed text! Nikkol paired the wood invitations with gray and white enclosures and gray envelopes to complete the suite.

From NikkolBeth and Tomu are both sophisticated successful attorneys that are socially aware but have a spontaneous and fun side. Beth and Tomu decided to get married at Sundance Resort, which is nestled in the mountains and surrounded by towering evergreens. Beth already knew she wanted a woodsy element in her invitations, but wanted to steer clear of any rustic intonations.

White screen printing on a walnut veneer was the perfect choice.  I used a recycled paper for the additional items in the suite and tucked it all inside a grey pocket enclosure tied each with a black silk ribbon.

It was important to Beth and Tomu to thank each guest individually, so I designed playful thank you flags that we tied to the flatware at each place setting.  That way if a guest wanted to eat, they had to read the note!

To add interest to the centerpieces and place settings, place card designs varied.  Some place cards were tented above their plates, while others were marked with flags in potted succulents.  The succulents were given to each guest as a favor at the end of the evening.

Kaitlyn + John’s Rustic Glam Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday everyone! We’re starting the week with some beautiful screen printed wedding invitations and save the dates from Heidi at idieh design. Heidi created a suite that combines rustic elegance with glamorous romance, pairing wood veneer with lace, kraft paper, and mailing boxes full of rosebuds!

Rustic Glam Wood Lace Wedding Invitations Idieh Design Kaitlyn + Johns Rustic Glam Wedding Invitations

From HeidiWhen John proposed to Kaitlyn, he not only presented her with a ring, but a tree stump engraved with their own unique monogram – their initials encompassed by a heart and arrow. This piece of artwork would become the inspiration behind all of their paper products, from their save the dates to invitations to all of their day-of stationery.

Rustic Glam Wood Lace Wedding Invitations Idieh Design8 Kaitlyn + Johns Rustic Glam Wedding Invitations

To announce the celebration, I worked with John and Kaitlyn to create a whimsical wood-inspired kraft save the date. The playful font gave the save the date an informal feel, but the guests were given a sneak peek of the black tie celebration-to-come with hints of lace accents across the bottom. The envelope was personalized with a liner of the couples engagement photo. The save the date was screenprinted by Diskgrunt.

The elaborate boxed invitation built upon the save the date. The main invitation was screenprinted on walnut wood veneer by Cards of Wood and wrapped with gorgeous lace trimming. The entire suite incorporated calligraphy by Jennifer Schmitt.

The tactile invitation was laid on top of dried mini rose petals that introduced additional texture and color to the suite. The response card, envelope, and details card were wrapped together snuggly and attached to the lid. The completed box was sealed with an address label and finished off with custom postage.

Sara + Bob’s Romantic Floral Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday everyone! Allie from AllieRuth Design sent over these beautiful wedding invitations – inspired by the English roses growing in the bride and groom’s backyard garden! Allie combined letterpress printing, digital printing, and even screen printing to create a romantic and vintage-inspired invitation suite that is full of color and texture. So lovely!

From AllieThese invitations were designed for Sara and Bob, who hosted a beautiful backyard wedding at their home in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. English roses are abundant in their yard and happen to be Sara’s favorite, so we chose to use roses as the motif in her wedding stationery.

I created floral and foliage patterns using vintage imagery, and paired them with hand lettering for a sweet and playful combo. Their invitation card, RSVP, and save the date were all printed by me using a digital/letterpress combination, which has become a staple in the AllieRuth studio. It allows for so much more color than a traditional letterpress printed piece, yet still gives couples the wonderful texture of letterpress.

The dark green was chosen for the screen printed cards (printed by Mama’s Sauce) as a nod to their late night after party.
