Get The Look – Art Museum Inspired Wedding Invitation Palette

Our Get the Look posts help you find your way from the gorgeous images you find on Pinterest {or your favorite wedding blog or magazine} to a perfectly inspired wedding invitation color palette! Using our Custom Wedding Portfolio design elements we pull different colors, textures, patterns and finishes to create a unique wedding wardrobe for your special day. To help pull the look together we suggest starting with ink and paper, then moving on to embellishments like edge painting, envelope liners and pocket folds.

This rich scene in an art museum is a perfect example. We love the pattern print and mix of blues and teals so we pulled those elements into our stationery palette. The timeless jewel-toned color palette mixed with the warm copper evoke and art museum feel that we couldn’t wait to recreate in stationery.


We started with a deep Cerulean blue printed on our Natural White cotton letterpress paper. We decided to go with a Luxe Board finish on the card stock {layering three sheets together!} to create a high-end museum board feel. Next up are the embellishments – framing the invitation with a gorgeous Copper painted edge and shimmering Lapis envelope liner, this look is complete!

We would love to see the images that are inspiring you! Share your favorite images with us or your local Dauphine Press retailer so we can help you pull together the perfect design elements for your wedding invitation suite!

Designer’s Inspiration {week one hundred eight}


We’re drawn to the organic watercolor pattern on this chaise. The varied pattern paired with the stark contrast of the color palette make quite a statement. We are always trying to capture this same striking first impression with our invitation designs. It’s the perfect way to get your wedding guests excited about your wedding day!

Client Customization – Presidio Inspired Letterpress Save the Date Card

This charming save the date card is one of our favorite custom designs. The bride and groom went through every detail in our Custom Wedding Portfolio II and chose their favorite design elements, letterpress ink colors and format to create their very own version of our trifold save the date card.

Heavily inspired by our Presidio wedding invitation suite, incorporating multiple design elements as well as the letterpress ink color palette, the final design is one that will have guests thrilled to be invited to this destination wedding.  The custom teal, inviting sea glass green and golden saffron letterpress inks are perfectly layered to show off the destination map, handsome frames and graphic center panel that will ultimately display the couple’s engagement photo.


It doesn’t get any more personal than this! And the best part? All of this custom design is included with your order, at no additional cost, when you design your wedding invitation suite through one of our exclusive retailers.

Suite Spotlight – Princeton Foil Stamped Wedding Invitation

We love every one of our invitation designs equally, but with this round of new wedding invitation samples for our Custom Wedding Portfolio II we may have played favorites … we love the technique of using two layers of foil stamping on our last new design, Princeton. We hope you love it as much as we do!

An epic day deserves an equally glorious and captivating invitation. The Princeton wedding invitation suite is your perfect match with an abundance of sweet romance and the most opulent elements. Printed in both pearl and silver foil on a sweet die-cut card and paired with shimmery metallic envelope liner and response envelope, this suite is like a vintage piece of jewelry saved for the most extraordinary of events.
