Gray & Blush Roses

Congratulations to Kristiana & Marlon for their romantic wedding in the Rose Garden at Lyndhurst Mansion. What could be more perfect than our Roses design for this outdoor wedding? Dark charcoal ink and a tinted embossing of flowers look beautiful together on warm white invitations. The Rehearsal Dinner and website cards have roses printed in a blush pink tint, that blends well behind the charcoal ink.

Cape Cod Farm Wedding

Congratulations to Cara & Brendan for their wedding this past weekend on Cape Cod! We used a variation on our Pictorial design, printing all the cards in navy ink. On the invitation card, we used a hand-drawn image of a barn from, that they provided. Its always a nice touch to have a custom image included in your suite. On the rsvp card, we added a space for song requests, which is a fun way to have your guests include a handwritten note on their response.

Greek Destination Wedding

Congrats to a lovely couple, Nicole & John, who were married in Greece this weekend! Their invitations featured olive branches fit for a destination wedding on the Greek seaside. The cards were all printed in dark gray and gold ink, on warm white paper. For a bit of contrast, we used pewter gray envelopes with an olive branch adorning the flap.

Monograms Part II

Sticking with the monograms theme this month, we wanted to share some options for incorporating these on wedding stationery. Monograms are one of our favorite design elements to print. They add a decorative detail and a sophisticated elegance to wedding invitations. Plus, the design can be carried through all of the wedding stationery, from thank you note cards to programs and menus.

We recommend couples adhere to traditional etiquette, noting that the bride’s initials come first on the stationery until the wedding has taken place. After the ceremony, the groom’s initials may come first (on the menu, escort cards and thank you notes) and/or the couple can use their shared last name, if relevant.

Even simple initials like this L + A (below) can elevate items like escort cards or menus and give the stationery a personal feel.

This couple opted for the nautical flags in lieu of letters.
