Suite Spotlight – Peony Letterpress Invitation Suite

Armfuls of peonies emerge on all sides of a cropped cartouche to create a breathtaking first impression for guests receiving our Peony letterpress wedding invitation. Unwrapping this delicately bundled package reveals layer after layer of heavenly details!

It’s hard to choose which aspect of the suite you love most with its overwhelmingly French feel, striking patterns, clever menu card and sumptuous palette! Lucky for you, you don’t have to choose. Our design team has perfected the art of layering details that result in a perfectly unique wedding invitation for each bride and groom with whom we work. A picture is worth 1,000 words – take a peek at the inspiration behind this suite:

Designer’s Inspiration {week ninety-three}

Happy Valentine’s Day! Taylor Swift’s gorgeous red lip and the sparkle in her eye are the perfect look for the romantic weekend ahead. So much of what we admire about good design {of wedding invitations, decor and fashion} has to do with the perfect mix of textures and we’re LOVING the balance of a bold lip color, shimmering eye shadow and soft curls shown in this look.

We hope you have an inspiring {and love filled} weekend!

We are mesmerized by the smooth rich tones of the satin dress in this image! It has us daydreaming of creating a custom version of our Belvedere wedding invitation in satin gold foil on a thick duplexed black paper!

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!

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!

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!
