Cable Car Jeska Brad

We absolutely love it when we get to work with clients who think outside the box and aren’t afraid to veer away from tradition and get creative with their weddings. This was absolutely the case with Jeska and Brad, who had one of the most unique celebrations we’ve seen in a long time.

Big Day Wedding Suite Purple

Jeska and Brad chose our Big Day suite in letterpress. We loved the pop of purple in their invites, which was definitely a running theme throughout the wedding — from the brides hair, to the flowers, to the purple layer at the bottom of her gorgeous custom made dress.

Keep Calm and Marry On

A good reminder for everyone’s big day!

Robot Cake Toppers

These robot cake toppers are pretty amazing, we’re especially loving the paper flags with their initials.

Big Day Table Numbers

Jeska and Brad printed out our free Big Day table numbers and mounted them on purple paper of course. How pretty are those flowers?

Genius seating chart which let’s people know where they are sitting and also explains who everyone is.

Congratulations Jeska & Brad! Thanks for being such a fun couple to work with!

Naturally we get asked about wedding invitations all the time. How to chose the right ones, what to look for, what wording to use — all such important questions! We thought we’d pull together a quick post on how to pick wedding invitations. Here are our top five tips!  

1. Choose the design that’s right for you. Don’t too get caught up in worrying about tradition; instead, choose an invitation that fits your style, whether it’s colorful or classic.

2. Embrace paper. While it’s tempting to do a lot of things digitally these days, remember that your wedding is a great opportunity to slow down, reflect, and celebrate.

3. Begin with the event in mind.  The invitation sets the tone for the wedding, so the design should ideally reflect the style of your venue, your color palette, and the level of formality.

4. Simplify. The only things guests really need to receive in the mail these days is an invitation — the rest of the details (e.g. travel, accommodations, registry, RSVP) are often best communicated by a wedding website or e-mail. That said, if you have the budget and desire for a pretty invitation package, by all means go for it!  Your guests will be thrilled.

5. Have fun! Wedding planning should be as fun and enjoyable as the event itself, so stop yourself if you’re turning into a bridezilla. Remember it’s not the end of the world if you don’t get the EXACT shade of purple font you were dreaming of. At the end of the day what matters is the big event and the small things that may go wrong on the way are worth brushing off!

Floral wedding invitationsIf you follow us on Pinterest you know we can’t resist a good wedding inspiration board and we’re always creating new mood boards based on some of our favorite wedding suites. We thought we’d bring some of those inspiration boards to the blog and do a regular feature showing how you can style your wedding based on your invite. Once you decide on your invitation it can really be the anchor for all of your wedding decor and design– from the wedding flowers to the bridesmaids dresses. Today we’re showing off one of our favorite invitations for a summer or spring wedding, La Vie En Rose. We just added this suite to our collection and we love the pretty elegant feel of this floral invitation. La Vie En Rose is a versatile design that can be perfect for a rustic outdoor wedding or a more formal affair.

Dessert wedding tables and cookies

If you go the rustic route for decor this dessert table is a great addition, it’s casual and cool with just some burlap and vintage pieces added to the table. We would carry the soft pink color from the invites to the treats and think these pink heart cookies would pair lovely with the feel of a La Vie En Rose wedding.

floral wedding decor and invitations

This line up of bridesmaids in mix and match colors and floral dresses is a lovely way to keep a variety of colors in your wedding decor and not commit to just two or three colors. And what bridesmaid doesn’t love getting to chose her own dress? Flowers picked fresh from the garden and roses in mason jars and vintage bottles would pair well with the original floral wedding design.

Is there a particular design on our site you’d like us to create a mood board for? Let us know in the comments and we’ll feature it here next.

The image of the flowers is from Style Me Pretty, the bridesmaids dresses were found via 100 Layer Cake as was the pretty dessert table.

 

This wedding had it all. Beautiful woods and a beach side ceremony. We love the couples casual approach to their wedding day. Derek and Lauren wanted a simple but beautiful wedding and these photos are proof they achieved just that!

You can’t go wrong with this stunning view.

The couple chose our Seagulls Wedding Invitation which matched their Oregon beach setting perfectly.

Lauren and Derek also win best wedding song choices ever in our book. The couple’s processional song was “Thank You” by Led Zeppelin and their recessional song was “Sunshine of my Life” by Stevie Wonder.

Congratulations Lauren & Derek!

With a couple general skylines thrown into the mix we’re hoping we please brides in cities all over the world with this release!

Here are the six new cities we’re welcoming to our skyline family this week: Portland, Austin, New Orleans, Edinburgh, Wine Country, and Mountain Skyline.

This real wedding featured on Style Me Pretty shows a classic side of San Francisco that we simply adore. Dream a Little Dream Events‘ Britt McNany and her beau Blake met in San Francisco and wed in San Francisco. Their theme was timeless, with dramatic details and bold colors. Plus, both the ceremony and reception took place in iconic buildings that were the perfect destination for their big day. We recreated a custom design to suit her romantic soiree along with some equally gorgeous day-of products.

Tables were each named by the various neighborhoods in our city, to guide guests to their seats. We love how the gorgeous deep red bouquets by Nancy Liu Chin match the cards.

A ceremony in St. Ignatius Church was the only place for these two. It’s sweeping archways and rich architecture set the tone for the night ahead.

This room is completely breathtaking. The entire Asian Art Museum is filled with historic and contemporary beauty, but to host a reception here is a true dream.

Custom printed place cards were set to match the table decor, with individual meal choices, too.

Congratulations Britt and Blake! We wish you a lifetime of happiness and a wonderful 2013!

A late summer wedding in Montauk, NY is just about as close to bliss as one can get. The warm days, cooler nights, salty air and bright colors make up a pretty perfect setting, and the real wedding of Anne and Chris shows us just how perfect it really was. The wedding, featured on Cappy Hotchkiss Photography, is dubbed “J.Crew I do” because the party is head-to-toe in the popular brand. It fits just right for these nautical nuptials, so we give props to the young couple for their killer style.

Have you ever seen a better looking bridal party? White weddings are classic but those colorful shoes definitely make a statement. Anne and Chris chose our Big Day wedding invitation customized with a heart and their initials at the top. Our favorite part has to be the dress suggestion at the bottom: Dress Sharp.

Each table included some handmade details, along with bright and beautiful bouquets by Flowers by Beth.

Our Big Day menus and table signs complimented the decor nicely.

Sparklers are always a nice touch when bidding adieu to the newlyweds. Congratulations to Anne and Chris! For more photos, visit Cappy Hotchkiss Photography.

We’re still swooning over all the beautiful details of Izzy and Harry’s UK wedding last December. Their save the date cards and invitations were only a fraction of the fun paper products displayed throughout their big day, so when Izzy sent us these beautiful photos by Sven Arnstein we had to share.

Custom wedding signage was created for almost every table along with matchbox favors, wild-flower seed packets, a wishing tree and a delightful ‘thumb-print tree’, and they all matched perfectly with the Hot Air Balloon save the date.

The couple really went above and beyond to create a whimsical space. We always love a winter wedding…

To view more photos, visit Hello! Magazine! Thanks Izzy for sharing the beautiful photos.

Although we just shared the exciting news about our new wedding invitation suites on our blog, we couldn’t resist sharing even more delightful news with our fans!

The latest latest additions to our wedding collection are these beautiful foil stamp wedding invitations! When we installed our foil stamp machine late last year it took us a little while to get the hang of it, but now we’re pressing these stunners left and right. Not only are the designs classic and modern, the shine of metallic foil adds a pop of perfection.

You can choose from a range of styles, including Symphony, Pop Deco, Atlantic, Shooting Star, and Parker. They remind us of a roaring twenties vintage party invitation – great for any formal event!

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a classic New York City wedding come our way. Tina and Gregory touched on all our favorite Big Apple details, from an incredible rooftop view to a traditional black and white color palette. It’s beautiful in its simplicity and we’re delighted to have played a part.

Our New York City Skyline invitation was the perfect choice for the couple. The charcoal gray and white set the tone for the event.

We can’t get over the intricacy of this cake/cupcake tower combo by Billy’s Bakery. You can’t go wrong with edible pearls!

Another wedding for the books. Congratulations to Tina and Gregory!
