Get the Look – Bird Cage Headpiece

This striking image evokes such a rich and high-end demure feel that our team wanted to pull a collection of our custom design elements to recreate this look as a wedding invitation.

Translating inspiration photos and mood boards into a stunning stationery wardrobe is what our team does best. Pulling from our Custom Wedding Portfolio II and Design Library, our designers envision pairing our rich espresso letterpress ink for the wording and a gold foil design element on the main portion of the invitation. With striking cardinal edge painting as an accent and cool London fog gray envelope liner, this fashion-inspired suite would be complete!

Designer’s Inspiration {week ninety-three}

2.13-DI-WEEK-93

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!

Designer’s Inspiration {week ninety-two}

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!
