Chinoiserie wedding invitations

The Element: Chinoiserie

Designed by Illustrated Weddings by Lola Lorena

From Yvette with Illustrated Weddings by Lola Lorena: “Gorgeous chinoiserie is the inspiration for this wedding invitation suite. The blue and white motif evokes a traditional vibe, while the hand-drawn elements bring a modern custom touch. The key to pulling off this trend is a bride who loves mixing patterns and has a playful sense of style. This suite will set the tone for the event from the moment guests open their invitation.”

Linen & Rope monogram wedding invitation

The Elements: Linen & Rope

Designed by Hazelwood Paper Co.

From Kristin with Hazelwood Paper Co.: “This suite was designed for a Texan bride with a love of details and texture, quality pieces, yet approachable. The wedding took place at her family’s private ranch, under a tent at sunset. The invitation was wrapped in linen, with the couple’s monogram on the back. It was embellished with rope as a nod to their ranch lifestyle. The entire suite was letterpress printed and guests received it via a box instead of a traditional envelope.”

citrus illustration invitation

The Element: Gold Foil

Designed by Bethany’s Letter Shop

From Bethany with Bethany’s Letter Shop: “My inspiration all stemmed from a photo of a wedding cake I found. It had dried citrus all over it, which you would think would have a summertime feel, but instead, it was so warm and fall-like! I immediately knew I wanted to illustrate citrus fruits that held these fall-like colors and had gold foil accents. Everything else after that just sort of fell into place! I’m all about fun illustrations these days, and I think this suite shows that off really well.”

invitations with bumblebees

The Element: Bumblebees

Designed by Ladybird Paper Co.

From Alexandra with Ladybird Paper Co.: “This suite is for the nature-lover who wants to combine elegance and whimsy into their wedding invitations. The custom sketched bumblebees and floral wax seal are a nod to her love of nature, and the soft colors and fine lines and fonts give a sense of elegance.”

 

acrylic wedding invitations

The Element: Acrylic

Designed by MK Event Boutique

From Hannah with MK Event Boutique: “Typically when thinking of anything acrylic, your brain automatically goes to ‘modern’ but I definitely think acrylic invitations can still go many different ways depending on the bride’s aesthetic and design. Although still modern with the custom monogram, we decided to add more of a traditional touch to the invitation suite, too, with the black and white color scheme and the wax seal with the custom monogram. The thin and dainty ribbon also softens the acrylic and adds more of a romantic feel. You can always guarantee that when your guests receive an acrylic invitation suite in their mailbox, they will be wowed!”

 

Velvet and vellum wedding invitations

The Elements: Velvet & Vellum

Designed by Ellis Paige Calligraphy & Design

From Kendall with Ellis Paige Calligraphy & Design: “I love when a bride gives me a specific design element to work with when designing their invitation suite. It challenges me to be creative and think out of the box to create something unique that they will love! For this suite, I used velvet and vellum details to create a soft and airy design. Incorporating extra elements such as envelope liners, vellum wraps, wax seals, and ribbon can take any invitation suite to the next level!”
