It’s fresh, it’s soft, and it’s one of the hottest color trends in stationery. Mint green pairs perfectly with neutrals like bold black, charcoal gray, and warm brown in so many different invitation styles. The versatile hue can be combined with elegant script and ornate ornament for an ultra upscale look, but it’s equally at home when paired with sleek, mid-century style typography and pattern. Check out these lovely (and minty) invitations to see just how cool, both literally and figuratively, mint green can be.

I’m a little bit giddy because it’s that time of year again, time for the introduction of oodles and oodles of gorgeous new wedding invitation designs and collections. I’m always excited to see what new and established trends will be represented and, well, I just love pretty invitations and look forward to seeing what both my favorite and new-to-me stationers are creating.
Bella Figura recently launched their new wedding collection, and I’ve been lost among the beautiful designs for the past few days. Styles range from the upscale, Jazz Age-inspired Fitzgerald by Ellie Snow to the oh so romantic Mae by Ian Koenig and the ultra cool Modern Dot by Erin Jang (shown above). Gorgeous, typographic designs and pretty pattern are well represented in the collection, which also features a nice dose of shimmery, foil stamped goodness.
A selection of some of my favorites:

This utterly gorgeous, custom wedding invitation suite comes to us from Coral Pheasant, who created the beautiful suite for Meghan and Ben’s summer Long Island wedding. I’m completely crushing on pretty much everything about this suite, from the fantastic typography to the soft, romantic color palette, amazing floral details, and vintage map postcard RSVP cards. Mmm, swoon…

It was crush at first sight when I spotted this beautiful letterpress wedding invitation package over at FPO recently. The gorgeous, gray and white suite was inspired by the Chinese character, 王,which stands for both the bride and groom’s last names, and the design is a visual blend of the couple’s “eastern descent and upbringing” and their westernized lifestyle.
The Chinese character was used to create the pattern on the front of the wedding invitation card and sets a modern, east-meets-west tone, inspiring complimentary patterns featured throughout the suite. A whimsical, script typeface adds a touch of playfulness here and there and is a nice compliment to the straightforward, sans-serif face featured throughout the suite. Head over to FPO to find out much more and to see additional photos of this beautiful, modern wedding suite.
This darling wedding invitation suite comes to us from Carrie Truslow of Pink Toast Ink, who also happened to be the bride. I love it when designers create their own wedding invitations and save the dates!
Carrie used a number of techniques throughout this unique suite. She hand illustrated a tree in her backyard to include on the save the date cards, plus she incorporated rubber stamping (using both pre-made and custom stamps) and heat embossing throughout the suite. She also dry-pressed a woodgrain texture into heavy white cardstock for the wedding invitation and lined the kraft invitation envelopes with sweet little doilies. This project was undoubtedly a labor of love, and the result looks like it was a perfect fit for Carrie + Derek’s big day!

Today’s invitation crush is a truly international affair, with design by Rio de Janeiro, Brazil-based design studio, Niramekko, and gorgeous, Moroccan-inspired patterns, which reflect the bride’s family heritage. This custom wedding suite also features beautiful typography and a refined color palette of warm taupe and rich red, with a great pop of teal coming in the form of super cool printed edges. Coordinating mini invitations (for the reception) also came with the suite, providing a touch of whimsy to this upscale, modern wedding suite.

I am totally crushing on these cutie patootie board game-inspired kids’ birthday party invites from Paper Tuli. The colorful fill-in invitations are available for 1st through 5th birthday parties, and each invite features the birthday “number” in board game style. The numbers are dotted with adorable illustrated “game pieces”, and the reverse is laid out to hold all of the birthday party details. Check out the cuteness:

I have a real soft spot for cute birth announcements, not to mention the soft spot that I have for cute babies, and these custom announcements by Palm Papers are absolutely precious. Little Ryder is pretty darn adorable, too!
Lauren from Palm Papers shares:
Nothing is more fun than giving the gift of design. I am at that stage in life where there is a baby boom happening among our friends and family. We have lots of friends welcoming their first child (and sometimes second), and my favorite thing to do for them is to design their birth announcements. This little cutie, Ryder, is the first son of some good friends of ours from Denver, and he made my job easy, quite frankly. That little face steals the show, but I balanced the sweet black and white photo with an adorable little bow tie, fun stripes, and a mustard and grey color palette. I loved how they turned out and so did his proud parents. Gift giving success!
