Every couple of weeks, Bailey and Emma of Antiquaria stop by to share some fun DIY ideas using rubber stamps – and today they’re here to share a wedding collaboration with a recent bride! Designer (and bride) Melissa La Pietra created the vintage-inspired designs for her wedding save the dates and invitations but needed a bit of help with the production. Bailey and Emma created a rubber stamp that Melissa used for her handkerchief save the dates, then letterpress printed Melissa’s designs for the invitation suite. Let’s take a look!
From Bailey and Emma: Melissa + Todd’s wedding venue was The French Laundry in Napa Valley, so the graphics for the invitation were inspired by antique french apothecary labels. For the invitations, we had Melissa’s designs letterpress printed in charcoal grey ink. We designed a custom map of Yountville of her favorite places to accompany the suite.
The save the dates were sent out in A6 box mailers wrapped in kraft paper and tied with twine. We made rubber stamps of her save the date designs, which Melissa used to stamp on vintage handkerchiefs. Mel also embossed their logo on the front of the box and stamped the return address.
The hankies were wrapped in a variety of patterned papers, tied with bakers twine, and secured with a wooden close pin (from the French Laundry).
Thanks Bailey and Emma!
