Marissa + Tom’s Aqua Blue Faux Bois Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday everyone!  I’m starting off the week with a playful set of wedding invitations from Allie Ruth Design that combines aqua and faux bois!  Together with yellow stitching and a selection of cute vintage stamps, the invitation suite has a sweet and quirky vibe perfect for an incredibly sweet couple.


From Allie:  I made these invitations for my friends, Tom and Marissa.  I am so honored that I had the opportunity to custom-design wedding invitations for this couple.  They are so much fun and a really sweet people.  They came to me with a loose vision of what they wanted – a vintage-inspired design with faux bois on aqua paper, stitched details, and real lace belly bands.  The rest was up to me!



I decided to go for a “formal and quirky” feel with these, bringing in the glassine envelopes, ribbon banner labels, and bright yellow thread.  I think the vintage stamps are my favorite part – the colors go so well with the rest of suite!




So lovely!  Thank you so much Allie!

  2. Lindsay, these envelopes are USPS guaranteed. There were no shipping problems at all – I’ll admit, I was a little surprised, myself.

  3. Amazing! and, i was just about to ask about the shipping, but i’m glad it went through!

  6. This is a gorgeous invitation suite! I love the clear envelopes. Any tips on where to find such bright and beautiful faux bois paper? I only seem to be able to find it in wood/earth tones and white. I love the bright bold colour of the aqua paper.
