Get the Look – Grey + Blush Inspiration for Wedding Invitations

This image from Canada’s FASHION Magazine has us falling in love with a grey and blush color palette all over again! The “classic meets feminine” combination is one we always love to play with {evidence here and here} but this time around our design team is sticking to just these two hues and we’re skipping the white altogether! That’s rare for a wedding invitation, we know, but we love the impact these color saturated design elements have on their own.

We almost always start with paper and ink when picking design elements. In this case we selected a subltely shimmery coral paper stock {duplexed into a thick card stock, of course} with our cool metal grey letterpress ink printed on it. Next comes another layer of metal, but this time in the form of edge painting. Then, we would wrap it all up in a luxe bisque double-faced satin ribbon.

The next step is the easy part – which of our designs would you love to see created with the combination of design elements? Your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer can help you select your favorite elements and pair them with your favorite wedding invitation design. We can’t wait to see what you choose!

In our regular Get the Look series from the Dauphine Press design department, we share some of our favorite hot new style finds and make suggestions for how you can translate the same look into your wedding stationery using the many custom elements available to you in our design library. Keep in mind that ALL of our stationery suites receive a designer’s touch and every one of our designs is customizable. Pairing the color palette and embellishments above with any of our motifs or fonts allows us to create a stationery suite that is unique to you!

The Dauphine Press design team loves typography (Seriously. Truer words have never been spoken!) and we are all huge fans of the weekly Typography Mania post series from the Abduzeedo blog. This hand-lettered design by Pretty/Ugly Design is one of many inspiring pieces from this series.

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!

Client Customization – Larkspur Invitation Featuring Pearl & Rose Gold Foil

Today’s client customization is simply stunning! Lauren and Alexander worked with our retailer Elizabeth Grace to create their version of our Larkspur wedding invitation suite. Layering the suite with two different colors of foil (pearl and a custom rose gold!) and traditional black letterpress resulted in a lovely traditional invitation for this couple. Using the pearl foil for all of the patterns creates a beautiful backdrop for the rose gold foil frames and black letterpress printed wording. We’re in love with the results!

Get the Look – Inspired Color Palette for Custom Wedding Invitations

Most of us are longing for a little warmth and sunshine this time of year, so it’s clear why we were inspired by this Vogue photo shoot featuring Taylor Swift. The color palette, celebrating the versatility of cool mint along with the warmth of rich golds and browns, has our design team pulling their favorite swatches and playing with samples. As a result, we found the perfect recipe for pairing this color palette with your custom wedding stationery.

Our designers are dreaming up a suite that incorporates a deep espresso brown letterpress ink printed on a thick duplexed card of a light brown “crepe” color. Then, with the fresh effect of the sea glass painted edges finishing the card and a golden “spun sugar” envelope liner, this palette would compliment any design and woo all of your guests!

If you also love to play with swatches and samples, we encourage you to visit any of our exclusive retailers to work with your very own Dauphine Press design consultant. Our Custom Wedding Portfolio II includes all of the available design elements and our retailers are pros at helping you define your big day with stationery!
