Modern Preppy Letterpress Wedding Invitations

I’m so glad that Martha Stewart has created an online database for the amazing real weddings featured in the magazine over the years.  The wedding of Tasha and DW Gibson, particularly the wedding stationery, is one of my all-time favorites.  It’s even more amazing when you consider that they planned the wedding in only five months:

Invite - MSWeddings

I adore the fold-out layout of this invitation and subtle use of pattern.  According to MS Weddings, “the bride wanted her wedding to feel like a garden in sunshine, so the invitation and itinerary (with perforated RSVP card) were letterpressed in moss green and golden yellow ink.”

I love the use of detail – the scallop edge and ribbon are just too cute…

PlaceCards - MS Weddings

For those of you looking for escort card or place card ideas, this is a great one!  And even if typewriter keys aren’t your thing, you could easily use vintage buttons or another small object and type or hand-write the table number assignment at the end of the paper.
