Stacey + Jason’s Modern Yellow and Gold Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday everyone!  Sorry I’m getting a bit of a late start today, but we’re still digging out from under our piles and piles of boxes, so my brain is a bit scattered today.  I thought I’d make it up to you all by starting off the week with a gorgeous vintage-inspired letterpress wedding invitation suite from Tova Glenn at Brighten My Day Studio and printed by Jen at Press Charming:


From Tovah: The bride owns an incredible fabric store here in Atlanta and loved the idea of pairing something sort of vintage with text that was really bold and modern.  And, she  knew she wanted to bring in pops of bold yellow, gold and black into the wedding itself as a complement to the mixture of vintage and modern décor at the wedding venue.


For the save the date, we offset-printed a great vintage pattern {that we re-drew} in a vibrant yellow ink and paired it with bold text, foil stamped in black.  The back of the card informed the out of town guests with all the accommodation information and weekend details.


Stacey and Jason wanted to honor their parents and grandparents in the wedding invitation, carrying through this Jewish concept of “generation to generation.”  I created an emblem that incorporated each of the parents’ and grandparents’ wedding dates — along with their own — into a beautiful, graphic image.  I thought the wedding emblem was such a fun way to create something graphic that veered away from a classic monogram or a theme-y illustration.

The invitation was letterpress printed in black ink on 220lb. bright white cards and edge painted in gold.  The emblem was then foil stamped in the bottom corner — a mix of contemporary and classic.  The response card brought in the yellow again, letterpress printed in black and yellow on 110lb. stock.  The envelopes — both bright white — were also letterpress printed in black ink, incorporating the offset layout of cards and the modern mix of typefaces.  We created custom postage stamps and incorporated a bold S+J {a fabulous contrast to the classic calligraphy on the front of the envelope}.


With the program and menu, we kept things simple and cohesive.  Both cards were long and thin.  We used  a bright white stock, offset set printed in the text in black and foil stamped the now recognizable wedding emblem in gold foil.

How amazing is that wedding emblem?  I love the way it both ties the entire suite together and serves as a lovely nod to the bride and groom’s family history.  Just beautiful Tova!

  1. What an attractive invitation suite! I adore the vibrant yellow ink and the emblem speaks for itself….such a wonderful tribute to the families.

  2. I love this! Tova did a wonderful job keeping it modern, but interesting and colorful at the same time. The letterpress printing was actually done by another printer {Jenny at Press Charming} who is fantastic. She did my daughter’s birthday invitations and a set of baby shower invitations that are darling!

  3. Nole – thanks you so much for showcasing this little invitation set! Everyone – Kate is right: the letterpress printing was done by the ever-talented {and sweet!} Jenny Barry at Press Charming {}.

  4. This is absolutely gorgeous! I’m featuring your post tomorrow in my Thursday Things roundup! Love this!
