Best of 2017: Playful and Colorful Wedding Invitations

It’s always hard to jump back into things after a long holiday break, so this week I thought I’d ease us back in with a recap of some of our favorite content from 2017! I started Oh So Beautiful Paper way way back in 2008 (it’ll be my 10 year anniversary in September!) with the goal of highlighting amazing wedding invitation designs, and it’s still such a privilege to showcase so many beautiful invitations each year. Let’s start with a few of our favorite playful and colorful wedding invitations!

My girls Samantha and Whitney of Gus & Ruby Letterpress are experts at creating the most beautiful letterpress printed wedding invitations, and I’m loving all the fun patterns they incorporated into these colorful wedding invitations! Plus, those watercolor escort cards are easily one of my favorite wedding details of the entire year.
