Designer’s Desktop {Kentfield Bat Mitzvah}

The design we are sharing with you today in our Designer’s Desktop series is one we are quite fond of. We love how changing out one small element for another results in a big impact.

Our original Kentfield wedding invitation design consists of a hand-tooled French engraving cuts border around traditional wording with a pretty floral on the outer edge of the card. If florals aren’t your style, we swapped out the floral pattern for a small lattice pattern. The result is still soft and sweet, perfect for shifting the wedding invitation into a Bat Mitzvah design!

If you have an idea for a small change to one of our designs that will make a big impact on your own personal design, just let us know! We love to collaborate with our clients to create new designs – like transforming any of our wedding invitations into Bat Mitzvah invitations, shower invitations, etc. Contact us or one of our exclusive retailers to begin the design process.

Designer’s Desktop {Stinson Anniversary Invitation}

We view this Stinson variation as the ultimate “his and hers” design. Taking a mix of masculine and feminine details from this modern wedding invitation design and incorporating them into a 25th wedding anniversary party invitation is pure genius.

The front side of the card is all about modern design and clean lines with a simple line border and unique, but open, font layout. The back of the invitation takes the modest floral from the original and repeats it to create an overall pattern.

 

The charcoal grey duplexed cardstock foil stamped with silver foil ties each side together into one unified design. A great combination for a great couple on their silver wedding anniversary!

How will you unite your two personalities into your wedding invitation design and ultimately into your wedding day? We would love to help you define the elements that are important to you and turn them into your own unique custom design.

Designer’s Desktop {Meadowood Wedding Invitation}

Our Meadowood save the date journal design is popular with couples that have a lot of information to share with their weddings guests. The multi-page format allows you to share weekend schedules, accommodation details and travel information.

Once the save the date is out and your guests have all of the details they need to enjoy your wedding weekend, it is time to design and send your wedding invitation. For our Meadowood suite, we designed a wedding invitation card that features a horizontal layout to match the save the date. The traditional wording is framed with a thin border of the signature Meadowood pattern in two colors of letterpress.

This design can be customized with your wedding color palette and with your favorite fonts and embellishments (like edge painting and envelope liners!). If you’re inspired, contact us to personalize this design for your wedding day.

Designer’s Desktop {Auburn Save The Date}

A common request with our clients designing their save the date cards is shifting the design to incorporate the couple’s engagement photo. We love the personal touch a photo adds and we’re always happy to modify any of our designs to fulfill this request.

The woodcut type look on our Auburn save the date is a popular choice, which we kept front and center on this design variation. The cross-hatch pattern that fills the background of the original is also present here, but we downsized the ampersand to allow for the photograph to take center stage.

Sometimes tiny changes make a big impact. We would love to work with you on defining what is most important to you when it comes to inviting your guests to your wedding day. Contact us or one of our exclusive retailers to get started on the design process today.

Designer’s Desktop {Fairfield Save the Date}

When viewing any of the designs on our website, be sure to check out the “view custom variations of this suite” link on each page under “inspiration”. If you’re looking for unique ways to customize one of our designs, this page is full of inspiration for you!

Our Fairfield wedding invitation suite is shown with a trifold save the date on the main page. If you’re looking for a non-folded save the date, one that keeps things simple and just shares the most important details with your guests, you will be happy to know that we’ve already done the design work for you! Shown with the custom variations for Fairfield, is this pretty little save the date card:

Using the same pattern as a frame along with the striking angled copy, this design just might be the perfect fit!

Our custom variations also show different print methods and combinations to match any budget as well, so be sure not to miss this gem when pulling all of your wedding stationery ideas together. If you need help mapping things out, or if you already have your favorites selected, contact us and we can start pulling the visuals together for your custom wedding suite!
