Floral Garden Party Wedding Invitations

Happy Earth Day everyone!  So in honor of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, I thought I’d share these beautiful garden party wedding invitations from Paisley Quill, letterpress printed on beautiful (and eco-friendly) 100% cotton paper:

I’m absolutely loving these soft pink colors for spring – from the rose-colored ink on the main wedding invitation to the pale pink invitation backing and envelopes.  Soft and elegant, and of course incredibly pretty.
