Sarah + Brian’s Art Nouveau Wedding Invitations

It’s been a while since I featured some of Kathleen’s lovely work, so I was thrilled when she sent over these green and white art nouveau wedding invitations that she recently created for her close friend Sarah!

From Kathleen:  I was absolutely thrilled when my long-time friend asked me to design her invitations.  My friend loves all things beautiful and organic and in general has an earthy aesthetic.  So I decided to utilize art nouveau shapes but make it a little modern with scale and typography.

Because she was on a super tight budget we decided to do a single double-sided invitation in two colors. We printed on a textured, but inexpensive, paper to elevate the look and feel of the piece.

Raechel + Alex’s Crafty Doily and Kraft Paper Wedding Invitations

Raechel and Alex’s DIY wedding invitations are all about two of my favorite things – music and kraft paper!  Raechel worked with her cousin Marion to design the invitations, incorporating Raechel and Alex’s shared love of music throughout the wedding stationery while using a typewriter font and copper brads for a slight vintage vibe:

Raechel then carried the kraft paper elements from the invitation and rsvp envelopes through to the ceremony programs and a slam book for the reception:

Carnivals and Spanish Lace

Heidi from Zenadia Design sent over a couple new additions to her invitation portfolio, and I was so excited when I opened up the photos that I couldn't wait to share them both with you!  The first invitation design was inspired by a carnival, and features big red + white stripes and game ticket details on the rsvp:

Spring Magnolia Wedding Invitations

Now that the trees have finally started blooming here — from the magnolias to the dogwoods to the cherry blossom trees — I haven’t been able to get these magnolia wedding invitations that Sarah posted a while back out of my head:

With magnolias illustrated by Jen from Swallofield, Sarah created these invitations for an upcoming wedding in South Carolina.  I love the color combination of peach and light gray, not to mention the blind debossed magnolias on the main invitation.  So pretty!
