Confetti New Year’s Eve Destination Wedding Invitations

As much as I’ve enjoyed 2009, I’m definitely ready to ring in 2010 tomorrow night – and these confetti-inspired wedding invitations from SeeSaw Designs definitely help keep me in a festive mood.  These invitations were designed for a destination New Year’s Eve wedding in Scottsdale, Arizona planned by Aleasha at A Day to Cherish.  The ladies at SeeSaw incorporated confetti details on the main invitation, and designed the rsvp card to resemble a boarding pass to tie in with the idea of a destination wedding:

The rsvp was perforated so that the guests could select the activities they wanted to partake in, tear off the postcard and mail it back. The remaining piece was a schedule of events for the wedding weekend:

Simple Blind Emboss Wedding Invitations

I love the quiet during the week between Christmas and New Year’s – it’s the perfect time to look back on the year that was before starting the new year.

This week I’ve been spending quite a bit of time going through my archives and trying to get myself as organized as possible before 2010, and I came across these beautiful blind emboss wedding invitations printed by Studio on Fire:

Designed by Aya Ikegaya for a summer wedding, the serene white and soft gray color palette would also perfect for a winter wedding.  The main invitation is actually the embossed text on the outer sleeve with letterpress enclosures on the inside, including a map and accommodation information:

Blue + Brown Floral Letterpress Invitations

Allison from Bird Dog Press has such a beautiful way with pattern — like these spring-inspired letterpress invitations that she created incorporating a blue background pattern with brown text and floral elements:

I also love the corresponding blue poppy on the brown envelope, which just gives a slightly more lush feel to the overall design.  So pretty!  Check out more on the Bird Dog Press flickr page.

Red + Aqua Papel Picado Wedding Invitations

Good morning!  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend!  I’m slowly easing back into my normal routine, and to help with that process I thought I’d feature a wedding invitation suite that is easily one of the most beautiful I’ve seen in a long time — these gorgeous papel picado wedding invitations by Parrott Design Studio:

Sarah designed these letterpress wedding invitations for a bride with a serious love for design and textiles.  In addition to the beautiful papel picado banner (note the wedding date in the hearts below!), Sarah lined the back of the invitations with a stylized version of a Liberty of London print and contrasted Crystal Kluge’s lovely Nelly Script with a modern sans serif font:

To complement the color palette of the invitation suite, the envelopes were lined with vintage oceanic maps in soft blue and aqua hues:
