Spanish Garden Party Save the Dates

Alejandra is planning a vintage-inspired Spanish garden party wedding, and she was kind enough to send over photos of her Save the Dates!  Alejandra was inspired by one of my earlier posts (yay!) to incorporate papel picado-inspired details using bold accent colors:


From Alejandra: We are having our wedding in a venue with European architecture with an indoor garden, tons of light coming in, and during brunch.  Being a Latina myself, I wanted my colors to be bold and playful, all the while containing an elegant and classic touch.  After much consideration, I decided that my two main colors would be red and teal.


Alejandra’s Save the Dates were a DIY labor of love — she printed them herself on cardstock and then added some texture by using rubber stamps, embossing powder, and a heat gun from Paper Source.


Love, love, love the gorgeous and bold aqua and red color palette — and that Alejandra used rubber stamps to create the perfect design for her vintage-inspired Spanish garden wedding!  Alejandra is currently working on her wedding invitations, which I absolutely cannot wait to see.  In the meantime, you can follow along with her wedding planning process on her blog, Oops I’m in Love.

  1. Awwwwww! Y’all are the best! Thank you!! Keep a look out on my blog because I am going to make a tutorial on how I made the design on photoshop (using free online brushes), and the envelopes!!
    Thank you for the feature Nole!!

  2. The first thing I thought when looking at this was “love, love, love” — apparently we’re on the same wavelength. This is so beautiful and classy. I love the light blue and red combo.

  3. Love it! I will be watching. I just made my own save the date cards in red and aqua with a papel picado theme for my 10/2/2010 wedding!
