Meredith + Michael’s Modern Green and White Wedding Invitations

It’s always a good day when an invitation from the ever-fabulous Ellie of Mint and Hello Tenfold shows up in my inbox, but these invitations in particular really make me smile!  Ellie created these clean and modern invitations for a wedding in Miami, combining stripes and floral details with a color palette inspired by the bride’s flower selections.


From Ellie:  Meredith and Michael are getting married this Spring in Miami, and wanted an “organic-chic” look to their paper goods — fresh, relaxed, timeless, and fun.  The hotel where they are getting married has bold black and white striped cabanas along the pool, and Meredith plans to use lots of green orchids and mini calla lilies.  We screen printed their invitations on ivory paper and added a blue rsvp envelope and envelope liner to tie in the colors of the bridesmaid dresses and add an extra “pop.”  Rehearsal dinner invitations were printed at the same time and inserted into the family and close friends’ invitations.






Proving that stripes and flowers can totally go together = awesome work Ellie!

Kristen + Ryan’s Red and Black New Year’s Eve Wedding Invitations

When I think of New Year’s Eve wedding invitations, I usually think of metallics and sparkles, but Colleen from Cleanwash Letterpress has me fully convinced that red and black can also work for a New Year’s wedding!  Colleen created these lovely letterpress invitations for a bride that wanted a feminine design in a red and black color palette for her New Year’s Eve wedding.  I love the floral illustration that Colleen created to frame the invitation and enclosures.

Valerie + Tyler’s Modern Black and White Wedding Invitations

Valerie from Southern Fete Creative got married this past September, and her wedding invitations are just as beautiful as I expected!  Valerie chose a simple and modern black and white color palette for her wedding invitations, but spiced things up with light blue envelopes, fun font selections, and envelope liners made from book pages!

From Valerie: As a stationery designer, I use a lot of bold colors.  I really surprised myself when I chose a fairly simple black and white palette.  I started the process a bit backwards when I decided I wanted to include book page envelope liners.  My sister and I and a few friends, created the custom liners.  THEN I started thinking on the invitation design. The inspiration for our wedding was a Barq’s Rootbeer can of all things.  I loved the banner and fun fonts.  For the crest, it worked out well that my last name started with M and his with a W – we created a fun design with that!

Valerie continued the black and white design through to the day-of wedding stationery, with coordinating thank you cards, ceremony programs, marriage certificate, and place cards.

Marissa + Tom’s Aqua Blue Faux Bois Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday everyone!  I’m starting off the week with a playful set of wedding invitations from Allie Ruth Design that combines aqua and faux bois!  Together with yellow stitching and a selection of cute vintage stamps, the invitation suite has a sweet and quirky vibe perfect for an incredibly sweet couple.


From Allie:  I made these invitations for my friends, Tom and Marissa.  I am so honored that I had the opportunity to custom-design wedding invitations for this couple.  They are so much fun and a really sweet people.  They came to me with a loose vision of what they wanted – a vintage-inspired design with faux bois on aqua paper, stitched details, and real lace belly bands.  The rest was up to me!



I decided to go for a “formal and quirky” feel with these, bringing in the glassine envelopes, ribbon banner labels, and bright yellow thread.  I think the vintage stamps are my favorite part – the colors go so well with the rest of suite!




So lovely!  Thank you so much Allie!
