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.

GTL-1.21.15

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!

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!

Get the Look – Marsala and Mixed Metallics

With Pantone’s recent announcement of Color of the Year for 2015, we thought one of our Get the Look posts would give our design team an opportunity to express their admiration for marsala! The details below explore our current favorite way to incorporate this strong color into you wedding stationery.

Rich color and elegant foil are the standout elements in this Gucci ad. Imagine your wedding invitation printed in our deep rouge ink on an ecru micah duplexed paper stock. The highlight of the suite are the mixed metallics with the gold edge painting on the thick shimmering card. Embellished with a luxurious bordeaux double-faced satin, this suite has the power to make a bold, strong statement.
