As I was putting the finishing touches on the Designer Rolodex over the weekend, I came across these gorgeous invitations created by Bird and Banner for a wedding in Germany. I love the gatefold layout, whimsical letterpress illustrations, and hand lettered text – not to mention the amazing color! The reception took place in a castle in the middle of a lake in southern Germany. Sounds dreamy!
You can see more from Bird and Banner in the Designer Rolodex!

Happy weekend everyone! Do you have fun holiday plans for the weekend? We were supposed to go up to New Jersey to spend the weekend on the beach with my family, but the hurricane sadly canceled our plans. So instead I’ll be spending the weekend at home, catching up with friends and finishing up a fun new addition to Oh So Beautiful Paper – I’m so excited to share everything next week! Next week will be a big one for me; I turn 30 (yay!), OSBP will celebrate its 3rd anniversary – and we’ll be celebrating these milestones with a fun new giveaway! I can’t wait! But in the meantime…
…a few links for your weekend:

Happy September everyone! September is definitely one of my favorite months – it’s my birthday month, the anniversary month of this here blog, and it means that fall is just around the corner. Of course, it also means that it’s time for the Fall issue of Martha Stewart Weddings! My copy arrived earlier this week, and as usual I’m loving all of the stationery designs in this issue.
For this year’s Fashion Issue, the editors drew their inspiration from beautiful fabric patterns – from plaid to florals to geometric shapes. The editors highlighted five different stationers for this story, showing the various ways brides and grooms can incorporate patterns with varying colors, scales, and applications into a unique invitation suite. I’m loving the plaid suite from Albertine Press and the ikat suite from Curious & Co. Creative – so pretty!
The issue should be hitting newsstands soon, so keep an eye out!

The ladies from Lucky Luxe Couture Correspondence sent over these gorgeous wedding invitations created for a black tie wedding. The ladies of Lucky Luxe are known for their romantic and ornate designs, and this invitation is perfectly suited for a formal wedding. The full suite includes a formal invitation, accommodations card, rsvp, and an invitation to Sunday brunch, all packaged together with a beautiful letterpress belly band and printed on thick cotton paper. So pretty!
From Annalee: This wedding is going to be at the Chateau in New York and is very much inspired by classic French romance and calligraphic elements. The bride was originally interested in the Deco and L’Oiseau designs from our collection but ultimately decided on a bespoke invitation that combined elements from both designs.
Thanks ladies! You can check out more from Lucky Luxe right here!
