Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Ashley & Dan

We have a very romantic Real Dauphine Press Wedding to share with you today! We love seeing {and sharing!} how all of the details of a wedding come together. We know that the most important thing to a bride and groom is the unique experience their family and friends will get at their wedding. Creating custom wedding stationery allows us to help all of our brides and grooms create exactly that with the invitation, but you really get a feel for each unique event when you can see all of the elements together!

The couple and their amazing planner Rebecca Reategui worked with our design team to create a stunning stationery suite full of delicate details. From the pearl foil and blue topaz letterpress ink used throughout, to the lace and textile patterns that complemented the wording on each card and the delicate touch of a single Swarovski crystal on the main invitation — the final result is something personal and fresh, which fits in perfectly with every single element they planned for the day!

Get the Look – Dreamy Disposition, An Inspiring Look For Letterpress Invitations

This striking photograph of Kat Dennings has the perfect blend of hard and soft components. Deep, rich colors are offset by her soft makeup and coloring, while the backdrop evokes a vintage feeling. All of these elements are the perfect foundation for fall wedding inspiration.

To capture this juxtaposition, we would love to see one of our more feminine designs like Kentfield or Kasbah customized in this darker color palette. We’re dreaming of olive green letterpress ink paired with gold foil stamping with a French roast colored backer card and antique gold envelope liner.  Want to make that transformation for your letterpress wedding stationery?

Suite Spotlight – Ivy Letterpress Wedding Invitation

January is such an exciting time of year for us! It’s the time of year when when wedding planning really starts to ramp up! That means that we have couples {just like you!} and our retailers sharing endless numbers of new “wedding visions” with us – the vision that each unique couple is dreaming up for their own wedding day.

We’re a visual group and love how inspiration boards can really help couples develop the overall look and feel for their big day. Inspiration boards have to be the number one wedding planning tool these days! Our designers also use inspiration boards to create new designs. For every one of our designs, we had a particular wedding vision in mind when the design was created. This is what our Suite Spotlight posts are all about! We share with you the inspiration board behind one of our favorite custom wedding invitations. We think it’s exciting to see the full process so we want to share! Plus, if you’re a bride or groom just getting started on your inspiration boards and planning, maybe this peek into our process will help you start pulling your vision together.

Typically, the viewers of our inspiration boards initially react to the color palette featured. When it comes to our Ivy invitation suite, we feel that with the inclusion of the hydrangea blue, it shows a modern take on a traditional wedding color palette. With olive green chosen as the neutral and used for the wedding invitation wording, the pale blue backer card adds pop of color. You wouldn’t normally think of pale blue acting as a pop of color, but our team pulled it off in a stunning way!

Take a peek at the inspiration behind our Ivy letterpress wedding invitation:

Dauphine Press Suite Spotlight - IVY

Our Ivy letterpress wedding invitation is a true classic! It is a design that is very versatile and gives an overall romantic vibe as well as touches of whimsy with the spiraling tendrils that fall behind the wording. Your choice of font used on this invitation can take this design from traditional to casual – one perfect for anything from an outdoor event to classic church nuptials. The fine details in the ivy motif used on the invitation and note card, along with the vintage engraving design used on the response card, really show off the deep impression of the letterpress printing!

So, what do you think? Are you ready to start pulling together your own wedding color palette and inspiration board? We can’t wait to hear from you and “see” what makes your wedding design uniquely you! Visit your local Dauphine Press retailer to get started on turning your vision into the perfect letterpress wedding invitation!
