Romantic Gray Calligraphy Wedding Invitations with Deckled Edges

As much as I loooooooove color, there’s just nothing more classic than soft gray monochromatic letterpress. Combine that with whimsical calligraphy and romantic deckled edges and you’ve got the ingredients for a seriously beautiful wedding invitation suite. Meghan of 200 Spring designed these romantic gray calligraphy wedding invitations with deckled edges for her own wedding, and you’ll definitely want to read below to see the enormous DIY escort card display that she made for her reception!

From MeghanIt was a dream in the making to actually be able to design my own wedding invitations and day of stationery! I am a huge fan of neutrals and greenery, which is what my wedding style was built around. So for the invitations I went with a really classic crisp white cotton paper with letterpress printing in a soft gray ink.

While keeping our names as the focal point, I used a sans serif font to balance out the suite. My actual trifold invitation was quite large, so I had them printed on 100% cotton Crane Lettra paper and hand deckled the edges myself.

I had this idea for a while that  I wanted my invitations to be more then a piece of paper – I wanted them to be an experience. From peeling off the wax seal, to opening up the trifold invitation wrapped in vellum, to the feel of the paper and the indent of the letterpress printing. I just think the details are what makes it so special.

The day of details were also very important to me. As an artist I can definitely be a perfectionist. I had this idea in my mind that I wanted a large escort card display. It started at 8ft x 8ft display….but when  my now husband and I walked into Home Depot and pulled the wood from the stack….cue the blank stares. lol. Then there was my overly exaggerated “BUT I HAVE A VISION” speech. Lets just say I was talked down to an 8ft x 4ft escort card display.

I did some spot calligraphy for the words “our favorite people” and had that laser cut, leveled and hung all of the paper pockets, hung the deer head – and voila! Our wedding was in a barn and my husband is a big hunter, so the deer head was pretty important, and the pockets were something to make it a little more fun and interactive!
