Client Customization – Magical Rehearsal Dinner Invitation

As we all know, a wedding is more than just one day. We love designing invitations to the secondary wedding events! Often these secondary events {like engagement parties, bridal luncheons and rehearsal dinners} are a little more relaxed and the stationery is lighter and more whimsical. That is truly the case with this rehearsal invitation. This custom design includes a playful use of fonts and a TON of gold foil stars. The stars are placed on the invitation card like they appear in the night sky and the custom foil envelope liner is a fun touch greeting guests when they first open the envelope.

Client Customization – Foil Stamped Timeline Save the Date

Most of us mark our lives with milestone moments and your wedding day is usually a pretty big point on your life and relationship timeline. Today’s Client Customization illustrates key moments on this couple’s timeline. Using vintage motifs printed in gold foil, this custom timeline tells a story and ultimately invites close friends and family to quite a celebration – 50 years of marriage! And yes, the gold foil was a must for this Golden Anniversary save the date!

We love to think of visual ways to tell a story. A timeline like this, or a special floral or pattern are all things we can incorporate into your wedding stationery design. This save the date was designed with the visual timeline save the date, telling the story of this sweet couple. And, the invitation, featuring a traditional feel, features a balance of script and all-caps serif font. The finishing detail is the gold edge painting to highlight the luxuriously thick card.

We can’t wait to hear the details that define your story. Contact us or visit one of our exclusive retailers to start the design of your wedding stationery.

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Morgan & Lonnie’s New Orleans Wedding

We weren’t surprised to see this New Orleans wedding shared on Style Me Pretty last week. We love how they describe the event – timeless glamour – we couldn’t agree more! We are always fans of a timeless color palette like white and gold and we completely admire their dedication to keeping each white and gold element soft and pretty.

The bride and groom worked with our exclusive retailer PaperSmith in Louisiana to create a custom design based on our Vignette invitation. The couple chose to place the intricate frame around the edge of the card and selected a classic font combination for the wording. Using satin gold foil on both the frame and wording makes quite a statement as we see that perfect balance of soft gold and fresh white that is prominent throughout the entire event.

We love that as invitation designers and printers we get to be part of the early planning stages of so many stunning weddings. Hearing each couple’s vision, seeing the invitations come off press and ultimately seeing the images of the special day where everything comes together is just one of the reasons we love our job! We would love to join you on your journey from idea to fruition! Contact your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer today to start the design process today.

Working with our exclusive retailer The Village Invites, the final wedding invitation design featured an elegant script in gold foil stamping on a soft white card. The oversized invitation is simplicity at its finest, putting the shimmering gold foil script in the spotlight.

Client Customization – Fancy Foil Stamped Save the Date

Using our Fairfield invitation pattern as their inspiration, the couple behind today’s Client Customization created a design that is the epitome of “traditional with a twist”. Our Fairfield pattern is set as a foil border detail, framing a classic save the date design with the client-created monogram and script font. The “twist” this couple designed – along with their local Dauphine Press retailer Carolyn at The Write Touch in Jacksonville, Florida – is a layer of pale pink letterpress ink (our shell) under the gold foil border. We love the dimension the printed solid creates under the foil stamped border!
