Caroline + Reese’s Screen Printed Wedding Invitations

I’ve had these illustrated wedding invitations by Will Bryant bookmarked for the longest time, and since things are starting to warm up here in DC (fingers crossed for an early spring!) I decided today was the day to finally share them.  With the sunny yellow, orange, and blue color palette and playful hand lettering, these invitations are totally perfect for a summer picnic wedding

Hannah + Young’s Modern Destination Wedding Invitations

This gorgeous destination wedding invitation from Curious & Company might be one color, but with beautiful calligraphy from Neither Snow and subtle texture details from the letterpress printing the design rises to a whole new level.  Brooke from Curious & Company sent over this lovely invitation created for a destination wedding in Lake Las Vegas, Nevada – take a look!

From Brooke: Hannah came to us looking for an invitation suite that would highlight the Lake Las Vegas location of her wedding, while not being overly “destination-y” in terms of design, and also taking her budget into consideration.  We worked with a lovely shade of blue, created patterns to reflect her modern style and show off the letterpress texture, and also worked in a subtle map motif of Lake Las Vegas.

Calligraphy from the talented Mara of Neither Snow was the perfect accent that we worked into the invitation and two response postcards – one for the wedding, and another for the day-after brunch.

Printed by Cleanwash Letterpress, this suite is a wonderful example of how a one color letterpress suite can still be beautiful and interesting without the cost of additional ink colors.

So delicate and beautiful!  This invitation was a custom project, but you can also check out Curious & Company’s collection of letterpress wedding invitations called the Claremont Collection!

Erin + David’s Rustic Pink + Burlap Wedding Invitations

Oooh… these burlap wedding invitations from Amanda at The Blue Envelope in southern Indiana are just way too cute.  Of course I love the texture from the burlap and stitching details, but I’m also loving the mason jar save the date, western typography selections, and hand painted details.

From Amanda: One of our most recent brides, Erin, is getting married at Claxton Farms in Weaverville North Carolina.  The couple is getting married in a barn and is keeping everything in their wedding very rustic and down to earth.  Erin is using all different shades of pink as her wedding colors.

At The Blue Envelope we enjoy creating things very different and out of the ordinary. When the bride told us she was going to be using burlap as part of her wedding décor we thought it would be perfect to use in her invitations!  The bride requested something different and unique but still wanted to reflect that sense of elegance to her guests.

The burlap was sewn together and fused with a piece of pellon to give it a stiffer feel, more like a regular piece of cardstock. Each piece was hand sewn and each monogram was hand painted.  We love how these turned out and the different approach to a normal wedding invitation.

So beautiful!  Thank you so much, Amanda, for sharing these invitations with us!

{happy weekend!}

Happy Friday everyone!  Do you all have anything fun planned for this weekend?  I’ve been busy this week making lots of changes to my apartment in preparation for some bigger changes over the next couple of weeks, and my Dad is coming down from New Jersey to help with some of the two-person tasks.  It’s so nice to have him relatively close by, particularly while my husband is overseas, and I’m looking forward to some quality family time.  But in the meantime…
