Imaginative Invitation Suites

by Jenny Bryde 21. September 2015 01:11

Tired of the same old, same old when it comes to invitations?  While there are a lot of free options out there, there are also a lot of FUN options to explore.  Having custom invitations created doesn't have to be a budget breaker, and it all depends on what design you like, what work you're willing to do yourself, types of materials, and if there's anything custom in the design.  Here are a number of great examples ranging from the "print your own" to the total custom job.  Click on the images to go directly to the shops!



Calligraphy Class

Ariel.  Times New Roman.  San Sarif.  The usual suspects in your font list.  What if we stretched our imaginations though and brought ourselves into the world of calligraphy where rules are thrown out the window and the end result is something beautiful and totally unique.  I'm talking about calligraphy.  The swirling flow of an ink pen or nib over lovely paper is just the classiest touch that can be added to your wedding stationery.  We've seen calligraphy on invitations, signage, menus, and more!  Some fonts out there can replicate calligraphy, but the best result is achieved by an actual calligrapher.  Let's take a look at some ideas to get your salivary glands flowing...

Wedding Invitation Wording Woes

by Jenny Bryde 17. November 2014 01:21

I before E except after C.  Okay, I have that one.  When it comes to wedding invitations, however, the rules are a bit more complicated.  Everything from what title to where on the envelope has a rule, and trying to make sure your invitation will be up to snuff for Emily Post can be a little daunting.  Today I wanted to provide some links to the definitive guides for wedding invitation wording in hopes that they can guide you to perfect punctuation.  Along with that, I'm including some of my favorite invitation suites that I've stumbled upon recently.  Beautiful!!  Happy addressing...
