Audrey + Erik’s Gingham Letterpress Overprint Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday everyone! Today we move into our new house, and I’m both incredibly excited and terribly anxious to put this whole move behind us (fingers crossed that we’ll have internet at our new place later tonight)! While we pack the final boxes and move our furniture, I have a couple of really gorgeous wedding invitations to share with you. First up, some gorgeous invitations from Sarah of Studio SloMo that incorporate one of my favorite letterpress techniques – overprinting – to create a colorful gingham pattern for a casual Fourth of July wedding. Love!

From SarahWe designed these invitations for Audrey and Erik’s casual July 4th wedding at a local park in Carmel Valley, California. The only guidelines Audrey gave us were to use bright colors and possibly incorporate gingham. Audrey and Erik were planning a BBQ in the park after the ceremony and using all gingham tablecloths.

Audrey also made strawberry jam with gingham jar tops for wedding favors. We created the thank you tags to tie around the top of the jam jar lids.  In keeping with the casual theme, they opted for a small folded RSVP tag tied to the invite directing guests to email their reply + check out their wedding website. Our favorite part of this invitation suite ended up being the little heart inspired by the gingham pattern.

Shannon + Phillipe’s Peach and Gray Brunch Wedding Invitations

Brunch is hands-down my favorite meal, so of course I love the idea of a brunch wedding reception!  For these brunch wedding invitations, Sarah from Studio SloMo combined the bride’s neutral color palette with pops of peach for a clean and classic design.  So pretty!

From SarahShannon, the bride, wanted to shake things up and have a morning ceremony with a brunch reception.  I was pretty excited considering brunch is hands down the best meal.  Her colors were all neutrals and somewhat based on Billy Reid’s clothing line.  We incorporated her neutral color palette by using slate grey envelopes, metallic silver ink, and a kraft belly band all accented by a hint of light peach.

The belly band has three layers: first a kraft strip, second a letterpress tweed pattern, and third silver + white twine with a letterpress bingo chip highlighting the wedding date.

Along with a brunch wedding, Shannon wanted her guests to have some good old fashioned fun.  She had different board games set up at each table, which is where the “bingo chip” on her invitations comes into play.  The wedding venue was a ranch in central Texas, so it only seemed fitting to use the new weather vane stamps that also matched perfectly with her color scheme.
