Ellen and Tyler: Spring Vineyard Wedding

Ellen and Tyler were married March 24, 2018 at Delaney Vineyards in Grapevine, TX. Their custom wedding invitation suite featured a linen card with classic text and decorative laurels mounted on a dark amethyst invitation backing. Their shimmery light lavender envelopes were lined with a vintage floral envelope liner and addressed to match the invitation. Everything was neatly packaged in a laser-cut monogram belly band to create the perfect first impression of their wedding from the moment the envelope was opened. Check out their custom wedding invitation suite below!

Our Wedding Party Olympics

Happy #TipTuesday! Today’s wedding tip is to consider merging your bachelor and bachelorette parties. When planning our wedding, we considered a lot of different ways to do this and landed on having a Wedding Party Olympics...Team Bride vs. Team Groom! The day was full of team events aimed at giving everyone a chance to get to know each other.

Happy Galentine's Day!

Remember celebrating Valentine’s Day as a kid? Everyone would bring 20-something Valentines (enough for the whole class), and you’d go home with a decorated shoe box full of assorted candy. Valentine’s Day wasn’t just a day to celebrate your significant other, you celebrated all of your friends...it was the best!

Taylor and Nathan: Romantic Branded Wedding with a Touch of Travel

Taylor and Nathan are the sweetest couple, and it was such a joy to work with them on their wedding stationery. Nathan was one of the few grooms I've had that attended nearly every stationery meeting. It was so fun to watch them look over the paper samples together and discuss which would go best with their venue, attire, and floral choices. At our first meeting, one of the existing suites in my portfolio caught their eye and we worked together to make it their own.

FAQ: What goes on enclosure cards?

Enclosure cards are one of my favorite things to design because there are so many different things we can include! Examples of possible enclosure cards that you can add to your suite are details, accommodations, transportation, reception, directions, and itinerary. The most common information to include as an enclosure card is the locations of the hotels where you have negotiated room blocks. If this is the only information on the card, we typically use the title "Accommodations". You can also include directions to the ceremony and/or reception, or even notes on attire!
