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.

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Jessica & Steven

Today’s Real Dauphine Press Wedding is an example of how powerful an evergreen stationery design can be. This couple paired charming, traditional details alongside a modern aesthetic on their wedding day, which resulted in a classic affair! Captured by Brea McDonald Photography, this coastal New England wedding is elegant and timeless!



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!

This creation was designed by our beloved retailer INK in San Diego, California using their client’s favorite elements from our Custom Wedding Portfolio II. If you are dreaming up a unique design you can be sure to find the elements in our design library so that we can build it from scratch! You don’t have to start with one of our existing designs when designing your own wedding stationery if you don’t want to. And, the best news is, it doesn’t cost extra to create your own design – our price is the same whether you take inspiration from one of our existing designs or build something yourself using our custom design elements!
