  1. This is so exciting. I was just thinking about my save the date cards. The wedding date is June 18thnext year, and I just adore the ‘LOVE’ suite, as I love how the typography is used and the fact that there is a heart symbol, which is what I am planning to use as my theme. Thanks for running such a giveaway!

  2. All of their designs are just beautiful! If I had to choose one however, I think I would pick Edisto. It is elegant yet modern and classy. It also has a wonderful textured element with the blind deboss and the layering in with the contrasting paper color. Very beautiful!! My wedding date is September 24th, 2011!

  3. Definitely the LOVE suite! We’re getting married on 23 July 2011, and much of our planning has focused on typography and playfulness – these would be perfect!

  4. I loved the “woods” collection. My wedding is April 28th, 2012 and we are doing a natural history theme, complete with Geodes, balsa wood menus and rented fossils (for table decor). Shades of natural greens and wood with highlights of tarnished brass will go throughout. The wood grain letter press would fit in beautifully with the rest of our vision.

  5. I love the Blushed collection. It matches our plans for an elegant, simple wedding.

    Oh — and our wedding date is Jan. 8, 2011, so I need to get these out ASAP!

  6. I’m adoring the love suite! We really want people to be excited for our wedding and realize ahead of time that we want people to be lighthearted and fun! Love does that with it’s fun typography, unusual text lay-out, and cute little heart!

    Whoops and my date is june 4 2011.

  7. I think my favorite design is the Blushed suite. I think the simple design and lush letterpress will fit in nicely with the fabric screenprint invitations we’re planning on having for the wedding. Plus, I really love that 42 Pressed uses all cotton stock. It gives their letterpress work such a lush richness. Congrats on OhSoBeautifulPaper’s 2nd Birthday Nole!

  8. sorry forgot the date. june 4 2011

    I really like pop­py­s­tone. It’s sweet and I like the sim­ple type. Since I’ve been told our theme is vin­tage gar­den party, I think this would go per­fectly with it.

  9. I love the Braddock suite! We’re much more into cool graphics than mixing up typography, and that design’s got so much style! The colors would be apple red and a nice gray, and they’d be the perfect introduction to our fun DIY wedding on June 4, 2011 🙂

  10. I was drawn to the clean and fun design of “Love”. We haven’t picked the final date but it’s July 2011. The use of typography is perfect for us.

  11. I’d say Ayla Berry is my favourite. Reasons being:

    1) Yellow is my favourite colour, especially in a milky tone and STRIPES
    2) Love the modern yet lively typography, which is just like the two of us!
    3) And did I mention orange is my fiance’s favourite? The envelope looks so refreshing!

    Our wedding date is October 28 next year.

  12. i love the “love” suite. its so modern and fun looking. I’m getting married july 3, 2011. My color scheme is the same color as the yellow in the “love” suite and the heart symbol is a running theme for my wedding as well.

  13. oh my goodness, i was literally looking at their stuff YESTERDAY and wishing we could afford it for our July 10, 2011 wedding!!!
    my favorite would have to be the FLORABOUND collection. i love the design, the colors, and feel it would complement the style and organic feel of our green, modern, loft wedding. thanks for the opportunity!

  14. my fiancee and i would LOVE to win!!! my favorite is the florabound, because i love the text, the color, and style of it. we are in love with modern organic style….thank you!
    p.s. wedding is set for next summer, july 10.

  15. oh, how lovely. i especially like the simplicity and elegance of the sunvalley save the date – it has a simple, old-fashioned, typographic look that is just perfect to me (three things i love). our date is April 30th, 2011.

  16. The Braddock collection is my favorite!! I love how it gives a modern feel to a classic motif such as the damask print. It goes perfectly with our wedding theme as we’re doing a damask themed reception. Our venue is a 1930’s hotel!

  17. The “Love” collection stands out to me the most, but I adore them all! The design is very similar to how I’ve imagined all my wedding stationary to look. The colors are what sold me though – yellow is my main color. My wedding date is July 16th, 2011.

  18. wow.. this giveaway is amazing, these invites are definitely “oh so beautiful!!” I love the bluebell invites, they remind me of lanterns, perfect for our asian themed wedding 🙂 wedding date 7/9/11!

  19. WOW! Our wedding is July 3, 2011 so we’re just starting to look at invites, but i never thought i could get letterpress ones, these are really really great! I love the BO weeks invite suite, theyre the perfect mix of modern and elegant! but i really do love them all~

  20. The Ayla Berry Invites are really really cute! I would love this for our June wedding next year! 🙂

  21. Wow! FLora’s Heart is my favorite but I honestly looked over all of these and couldn’t decide! Our wedding will be July 9 next year! Thanks for a chance to win!

  22. Oooh the Sunvalley invites fit the style and color scheme of my wedding perfectly! We are getting married in May of next year (no set date yet, we’re still waiting on confirmation from our venue) with a small, fun, and personal ceremony. These invites are unique and modern but not so funky that the parents won’t get it! 🙂

  23. I am getting married August 6, 2011, and my favorite set of invitations is the Love suite.

    I can’t say how it will fit my overall theme, as we don’t actually have one yet, but I love the way the type is used, letting it really shine without additional embellishments.

  24. In no way are we a traditions couple and I feel as though the Sunvalley collection captures that perfectly. I can see this collection serving as a great way to set the tone that we are hoping to have our friends and family join us as we come together to have fun and celebrate! We’ve set our celebration date to be August 20, 2011.

  25. my sister would die to win these!! both her and i love the florabound line. the date of her wedding is july 10, 2011. these look like her so much…simple, modern, and colorful. thanks!

  26. I pick Aylaberry as my favorite invitation suite, with Sunvalley’s baker’s twine very much tugging at my vintage crafty aesthetic heartstrings. Aylaberry is more playful and lighthearted though, which is what I’m going for in all this planning!

    Oh and the wedding date is June 18th next year–high five, Karen!

    Happy 2nd blog anniversary, OSBP!

  27. These invitation suites are gorgeous! In particular, I love the poppystone design. The loose floral design mimics the look of the flowers at our venue, which is a garden setting, with an airy atrium for dinner and dancing. We’re getting married next summer, on June 11, 2011, and these would perfectly complement our style and venue.

    Thanks for the chance to win!!

  28. The Woods collection is perfect for our Adirondack themed wedding on July 3, 2011! We already purchased save the date cards, but we could really use invitations!

  29. I chose Woods.I am having a summer wedding outdoors in the woods by the River.I love the outdoors.This one fits me perfectly.July 16, 2011
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  30. 7-16-11 I would have to choose the “Love” DESIGN.I like that one because love is printed on there in different languages.My woman and I come from different cultures and we are incorporating that for our special day.
    [email protected]

  31. I LOVE Edisto! It’s just so elegant – definitely the feel my fiance want on our wedding on July 14, 2012. It looks effortless too, though, which is what we also want to exude; elegant but effortless. We’re easygoing people, but want to celebrate our love in grandeur!

  32. Edisto will go with the wedding theme I want to create,this invite says elegance and romance so it’s perfect.

  33. I love the Braddock suite, it would be perfect for my 9/10/11 wedding, as I plan to use hints of damask to tie the theme together. Great products!

  34. Wow! Love these! Braddock in Yellow & Black would be perfect for my October 8, 2011 wedding! ( : What a great giveaway!

  35. I love the AYLABERRY suite!! We are getting married July 9, 2011 and this design fits perfectly with our downtown urban/vintage wedding. The save-the-dates would be the perfect “peek” into the look and feel of our special day.

  36. oh, how stylish and perfect for my daugher’s wedding next July (7-10-11) at smogshoppe. they all look so much like her, especially the florabound. she has a tight budget, so this would really help!

  37. They’re all gorg, but I especially love love LOVE the AYLABERRY! It’s simple and classic which is very much in tune with the theme of our wedding which will be October 1st, 2011. Thank you so much for this opportunity. Happy Weekend. 🙂

  38. Hello 42 Pressed and Oh So Beau­ti­ful Paper! My wedding date is June 25, 2011. I just adore the Love Birds collection and have been contemplating ordering the wedding invitations for some time now. I am so excited that Dan and I will be hosting our reception at the Phipps Conservatory located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This building is aboslutely amazing and is one of the oldest Victorian Greenhouses in the United States. We’re going with a vintage rustic garden theme and our guests will be able to mingle among all of the beautiful gardens during the cocktail hour. The primary color that we will be incorporating is a plum-toned purple. The flowers will be a mix of anenomes, muscari (grape hyacinth), purple stock, fresh lavendar, and seeded eucalyptus. The Love Birds save the date will be the perfect start to our garden celebration! Can’t wait to see who wins!!

  39. Hi,

    My favourite wedding design is the Sunvalley. The first thing that popped out at me was the save-the-date card….it reminds me of a post-it note. My fiance leaves notes all over the house as reminders and lists of things to do for himself. I also love the modern/timeless feel of it – which will tie nicely into our evening cocktail wedding that is being held outdoors.
    Our wedding is June 17, 2011 and we can’t wait!

    Thanks for giving us the opportunity – your designs are gorgeous!

  40. I am absolutely in love with the love suite! I think it will fit my whimisical/preppy wedding so perfectly. The whole layout of each piece is beautiful! And it’s fun but still elegant 🙂 My wedding date is June 11, 2011! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  41. I love all the designs! But if I had to pick one it would be the love suite. It be perfect for our wedding because the date will also be our 10 year anniversary! The wedding date is June 18, 2011!

    Love how simple the suite is. For us, we want our wedding to be simple and fun!

  42. The AylaBerry ones are cute! Plus, it’s the only one I can imagine in one-color. July 19th, 2011!!!

  43. Absolutely j’adore, amore, karlek, love, the LOVE save the dates. Just incredible – I’m a little bit of everything (Chinese, Italian, Dutch, etc.) as is my fiancee, and we’re really trying to find a way to capture our cultural diversity in our July 23, 2011 wedding. Plus, our colors are the curry in the invite. Simply the best!

  44. My fiance and I LOVE the Berkshire invitation suite! We are getting married June 18, 2011, and my vision for the wedding is “an elegant mountain-top picnic.” As I’m sure you can imagine, getting my fiance on board with this amazing idea is easier said than done. However, I was surprised when he immediately smiled after showing him the pictures on the website!
    Being a couple who loves the outdoors and nature, the natural design and elegant simplicity of the Berkshire invitations really captures my vision for the entire day. I think that these save the dates will really give our guests a sneak peak for what is to come on our special day. That’s in addition to the fact that my fiance is finally excited about some of the planning!

  45. SUNVALLEY Collection!
    July 2, 2011
    I looove this collection…the font families, colors, textures all work perfectly to convey the approachable and sophisticated look we’re going for. I feel like the baker’s twine detail will tie in with all the handmade features of our decor, too!

  46. So many beautiful choices… I think the Braddock collection would be perfect for our July 23, 2011 wedding on a beautiful alpine lake in North idaho… it’s bold and sophisticated, totally fits my fiancee and me!

  47. Edisto is by far my fiance and my favorite! The classic elegance would be perfect for our save the dates. I love the look and it would go perfectly for our wedding at a country club on July 23, 2011! Thanks!

  48. My fiance and I are getting married on Sept. 10, 2011 a lakeside resort in the woods of Muskoka, Ontario, Canada. The woods collection suits our vision of a ‘weekend of love in the pines’ and this save the date will give our friends a family an idea of what’s to come!


  49. Jason and I are big fans of the Braddock collection. Our wedding is 11/12/11 in New Jersey. That collection describes us, “both classic and modern with a hint of sass”. The colors remind us of Notre Dame football – big fans, and we both play of a co-ed football league in the city. We want to incorporate our love of football but we weren’t sure how until we saw the Braddock collection. Your artwork is incredibly beautiful and will convey our love of football in a classic, modern with a hint of sass kind of way 😉

  50. Paul asked me to marry him on a crisp Fall day in the Catskills of New York, far away from the hustle and bustle of New York City, where we currently live. Our love of nature has has always been a large part of our life together and inspired me to create my fantasy wedding. Chandeliers will hang from trees, the leaves will have turned vivid reds and yellows and the feeling of fall will surround our celebration. Our wedding is set for October 29, 2011 at Lake Martin, Alabama. The Woods invitation suite would be a perfect fit for our wedding.

    My only other question is, wood you pick us? 🙂

  51. Chris and I are getting married on August 5, 2011 in Alma, MI. The Braddock collection would be perfect for us! It is classic and sassy, with a modern twist. The fleur-de-lis-esque style is beautiful, and I love the navy with curry, as it is bold yet classy; and our wedding colors are blue and yellow, which just happen to be the colors of my alma matter, the University of Michigan. We would love the chance to have this collection for our wedding invitations!

  52. i am a big fan of the “love birds” suite. the mix of typography is so sweet! i am especially a fan of the typewriter-esque font which will tie in with some of our other paper elements. our wedding is set for may 7, 2011 in charlottesville, virginia.

  53. Hi!

    I love the “love” suite. Adorable. We’re a fun loving couple who between the two of us speak 5 languages. I’ve worked at a Los Angeles University’s foreign language department for 3 years, and those invites couldn’t be sweeter. Our wedding date is September 24, 2011.

  54. Hi there! Our wedding date is June 4th, 2011. I love the Florabound suite, it’s gorgeous. We are getting married in a garden in an old historic town surrounded by nature and 18th century brick houses and we are looking for that classic vintage look. The Florabound has that lovely design of flowers and shapes, and it is very fitting with our historic vintage theme! We are using toile in parts of our decor, and this design reminded me of the toile. And, our colors are yellow, gray, black and ivory, so this fit perfectly 🙂 Love them!

  55. Oh wow! We are enamored with the “Love Birds” suite! In all of my scouting, I have yet to see a design that I like more. We are getting married in Santa Barbara, California, in a vintage-meets-modern (perfect for Love Birds!) celebration culminating in a charming backyard picnic reception. We are decorating with heirlooms from all generations of the family line, tying vintage and modern together. Several of my grandmother’s contributions are bird figurines that she has collected throughout the years, so we have been integrating the bird theme into all aspects of the wedding. Before we saw this giveaway, we didn’t think that we would have Save the Dates due to budget constraints! The Love Birds would be such a beautiful way to tie together our cherished family heirlooms with our modern love story! May 16, 2011!!

  56. the edisto is by far my favorite. the clean pristine line work that is reminiscent of a theatre ticket, would be great for my +1 and i. i am a stage manager by trade and the +1 is a in the army nurse corps. this is the perfect blend of hard line and whimsy. woudl be perfect for my 3 Sept 2011 wedding in CT.

    second choice would be Aylaberry…cute and unexpected.

  57. Aylaberry is my favorite. It would be be a great fit for our July 2, 2011 wedding. I’m actually looking for a design that is clean and modern, yet bold in it’s simplicity. We’re going to use some of our favorite typefaces as part of our decor, as a nod to my interest in design and our shared love of books. It would be a gorgeous contrast to the Georgian style architecture of our reception venue.
