From Krystal and Alana of Vellum & Vogue: As designers, one of the most fun parts of planning your own wedding is the paper goods. That includes all of the peripheral events like the bridal shower and of course, the bachelorette party. The details around Alana’s bachelorette weekend were arranged long in advance, so to get guests excited we decided to send out an itinerary outlining the upcoming weekend events.
We wanted the itineraries to have a bright pop of color and immediately fell in love with these teal envelopes, incorporating the same shade throughout the suite. We also wanted to add a touch of gold. Since this project was a shorter run, we opted for a DIY foil technique, easily accomplished with a glue stick and sheets of gold leaf applied to the border of each itinerary card.
The cards were completed by a folded itinerary, mounted in a glassine envelope on the back of each card. We layered the itinerary over a black and white geometric pattern and teal card stock, also accented in gold foil.
We also created complimentary thank you notecards and coasters which became part of a favor box for each guest.
Thanks Alana and Krystal!

From Korie: Vintage stamps are the perfect way to continue the overall theme and color palette in an invitation suite. Using multigenerational postage allows you to create a storyline and always makes the envelope more interesting. Each vignette tells a color story: the backdrop, the floral combinations, the envelope, ink choices, calligraphy style, and the stamps. From Americana to English countryside to Garden glamour, Jody accented each envelope with flowers and foliage grown and selected from her personal garden.
Thanks so much ladies!

From Jill: We work with hundreds of brides each year to design their perfect wedding invitations, however, these invitations are extra special, as they are our own wedding invitations. We tied the knot in September 2013 with a small, quaint ceremony.
As a wedding stationer, there was so much pressure in designing my own invitations! I knew that our guests would expect nothing short of an awesome invitation and I didn’t want to disappoint. Pressure aside, it was such a fun process! I wanted it to be an experience to open our invitations – and I wanted our guests to get excited for our big day!
The invitations are letterpress printed on double thick handmade paper. In our retail and wedding lines, I work with paper maker Porridge Papers a lot to make paper for our products, mostly seeded paper. So I knew I wanted to use his paper as it is lush, soft, and prints beautifully! We chose a double thick stock since each piece of the wedding suite is double sided. I wanted to get a nice, deep impression on each piece without show through on the opposite side. The end result is beautiful: soft, thick paper, and deep printing impressions!
Thanks Jill and Brian!
