The vinyl displays with the couple’s seating charts and menu, installed on this bay of doors, is a stunning way to share these details with all of your guests. And not to mention, make a bold visual statement!

Another great idea reception decor idea is the addition of the lush floral touches that embellish the overall display, like the ladies at A Garden Party added here. Florals are always a great way to add texture and color! We know that you’re always looking for new and exciting ways to display details for guests and this idea really takes the cake!

Client Customization – Chalk Hill Letterpress Wedding Rehearsal Invitation

Rustic meets romantic on our Chalk Hill wedding stationery suite, which makes it perfect for events that range from casual to formal. We love the color palette change on this version, inviting Kelsay and Bruce’s wedding guests to their rehearsal dinner. The French blue and copper inks beautifully highlight the winding florals and calligraphic fonts on their custom invitation, menu and place card.

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Jennifer + Brandon

Today’s bride, Jennifer, said it best herself:

“It is so wonderful to see all the details come together and look more outstanding than I could have ever imagined.”

It’s that moment that every bride longs for. In the name of love, every minute of planning comes together on your big day. We’re thrilled to be sharing those details from Jennifer’s wedding to Brandon today.

Jennifer and Brandon teamed up with Stacy McCain Event Planning to create an enduring affair for their guests. From the venue, to the florals, the brides accessories and the paper details, every element fell perfectly into place with effortless beauty.

Working with Dauphine Press exclusive retailer Union Street Papery, the couple chose our Ivy suite as inspiration for their wedding stationery. Personalizing the letterpress invitation with a natural color palette of spring green and espresso brown gave their guests a glimpse into the gorgeous outdoor affair in store. The couple also chose a deep brown backer card to frame the invitation and carry out the look. With a touch of tradition, they customized the design to include a layout with all of the text centered on the card, over the whimsical offset layout of the original design.

With classic place cards directing guests to their seats where they found the 2-color letterpress menus tucked into the perfectly coordinating napkin and the invitation design duplicated on the wedding cake {we LOVE that touch!!!} this fabulous fete is one of our favorite real Dauphine Press weddings!

Vibrant Spring Style Shoot

It has been an outstanding week here at Dauphine Press! In addition to launching our Presidio suite in Martha Stewart Weddings, we have been collaborating with a few amazing vendors and are happy to announce that our work has finally been released! And, the best part is that our beloved Kasbah suite was featured on the 100 Layer Cake blog!

Lucky us, we had the opportunity to work with Allison at Engaged & Inspired on this gorgeous shoot {have you seen all of her work? I could spend hours pouring over her amazing portfolio!}. Allison chose our Kasbah design in a glimmering, gold foil for the perfect invitation to this vibrant wedding scene. Kasbah is a best seller of ours for its classically-elegant corner details. This version was customized with the reflective gold foil and belluccia script for the bride and groom’s names. For the table menus, Allison selected a design with an embellished frame at the top and a variety of elegant fonts to outline the wedding menu details.
