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:

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!

Designer’s Inspiration {week thirty-seven}

Of course this image had us thinking of letterpress! The pattern that is etched into the snow {by a single man, on foot!} would make a beautiful blind hit of letterpress on a cotton paper! This man-made pattern creates an even more picturesque snow landscape. What a beautiful way to celebrate the season.

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!
