Romantic Rustic Wedding Invitations

Romantic Rustic Letterpress Wedding Invitations

I am completely crushing on this beautiful letterpress wedding invitation suite from Jupiter and Juno. The undeniably romantic invites feature shimmery metallic blush ink on kraft stock for a look that’s a little bit rustic and so very lovely.

This invitation suite was designed by Jupiter and Juno’s staff designer, Jessi, for a client who was having a wedding with a rustic theme and pink accents. Metallic pink envelopes echo the metallic blush ink on the invitation pieces and create depth, interest, and a subtle yet eye-catching shimmer in the finished suite. The client also provided a beautiful floral pattern that she had selected for invitation liners. Invitations were printed on 270 gsm Stonehenge Kraft paper, and all printing was done in house on Jupiter and Juno’s 1950s Heidelberg Windmill Blackball press. The finished suite was tied with adorable pink and white baker’s twine to complete the look.

The suite has been dubbed ADELE and is now available for purchase in the Jupiter and Juno shop. Lucky brides and grooms who are interested in this suite can find a great discount offer that’s going on right now (for a limited time), too!

Alissyn + Bryan’s Elegant Gold Lace Wedding Invitations

Elegant Gold Lace Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Today’s ultra elegant invitation crush comes to us from Kimberly at Paper Krush, who created this lovely gold and lace-infused letterpress wedding suite for Alissyn & Bryan’s romantic celebration. The gorgeous invitation suite features beautiful script typography, shimmery gold edge painting, and hints of blind debossed lace that feature throughout the suite. The cherry on top of this sophisticated wedding suite is the gold snakeskin envelope liner, which adds an unexpected edge to the romantic design.

Elegant Gold & Lace Wedding Invites

Kimberly from Paper Krush shares:

Being a gal from Manhattan who appreciates a little sparkle and quality paper, Alissyn was hoping to set the tone for a sophisticated and romantic evening with gold and touches of lace. Rather than utilizing actual physical lace, I decided to include it right in the design by using a blind impression throughout the suite.

The 220lb Crane Lettra is complimented by edge painting, and the suite is finished with shimmer bakers twine. In the brides words, “It’s like a little present!” Many times, the presentation can mean just as much as the design itself. I was very specific with how I placed each piece before tying the bow. Metallic ink and added gold touches, such as the snakeskin envelope liner, make an impression without going over the top.

Diana + James’ Dreamy Photo Wedding Invitations

Dreamy Photo Wedding Invitations

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I LOVE it when creatives design their own wedding invites! This beautiful wedding invitation suite popped up in my inbox recently, and it was crush at first sight. Featuring photos by Jose Villa and design by James Prunean (aka, the groom), the suite has such a dreamy, romantic look and is perfect for Diana and James’ upcoming California wedding celebration.

Dreamy Photo Wedding Invitations

The couple, James (a stationery designer) and Diana (a film photographer), met on Twitter when he followed her and complimented her on a feature she had on a wedding blog. James was instantly drawn to Diana’s talent. It took a little time, but Diana eventually responded and thanked him, he followed up with a direct message, and the rest is history. Seeing as James is from Ontario, Canada and Diana is from California, the couple didn’t know where they should have their wedding. The bride wanted something close to her, and the groom wanted something close to him, but they both settled on a destination wedding in Los Gatos, California.

Photo Wedding Invites

James shares about the design process:

As a stationery designer myself, I didn’t know how I would ever settle on anything for my own invitations. How would I ever design something that I would be happy with? I find that designing for myself has always been the hardest challenge. I wanted to design something that speaks to both our talents, photography and design.

I rarely see photography being used properly with invitation design but felt like I couldn’t go wrong with the engagement photos we had done by Jose Villa, and he allowed us to use a few other of his images to really set the tone for the wedding. I feel so blessed to have been able to work with such a talented photographer. I flew up to California in October, and he shot the photos for us. It was a beautiful experience, and we wanted to share it with our family and friends.

We printed the suite on a textured felt paper, which gave the invitation a wonderful canvas feel. We used natural unbleached paper, which softened the printing and added the perfect dreamy effect we wanted, and the cover shot of us is a keepsake piece for our family and friends. We finished off the invitations with some raffia and a round tag saying “We are getting married in California”, which answered the big question that both of our families had.
