Wedding Envelope Calligraphy Inspiration

Beautiful calligraphy isn’t reserved just for wedding invitations, and stunning, calligraphed envelopes have been popping up all over for the past couple of years, as couples with a love for lettering are pushing the envelope (pun most definitely intended) and commissioning calligraphers to transform plain envelopes into incredible keepsakes.

Here are some of the beautiful, calligraphed wedding envelopes that I’ve been crushing on lately, and I hope that they’ll be inspiration for your own lovely wedding and invitation envelopes!

Indigo Blue Wedding Invitation Ideas

It’s an inky indigo kind of week for me, as I cover this hot color trend in stationery and paper goods over on Paper Crave and share these beautiful, deep blue wedding invitations ideas with you here today.

I am completely smitten with this color trend and love to see the different ways in which designers include rich and gorgeous shades of indigo in their beautiful wedding invitation designs. You’ll find everything from solid backgrounds with subtle, textured effects to designs with wonderful, watercolor effects to gorgeous invites that combine indigo with another hot color trend, metallic gold. Let’s feast our eyes on the indigo loveliness, shall we?

Floral and Gold Foil Wedding Invitation Ideas

Floral wedding invitations are classic, feminine, beautiful. Gold foil wedding invitations are fresh, textural, snazzy. Combine the two styles, and you have undeniably lovely, modern invitation designs that are equal parts romantic and contemporary.

You can go big or go subtle with both floral and gold foil elements, including them as either subtle, understated details that blend seamlessly with the full design – for example, a floral bouquet in the corner or a gold foil touch to just your names – or as the stars of the show – a lush, floral wreath frame around your wedding details or gold foil embellishing on all of the elements in the design. Whatever your decide, the possibilities for a stunning result are endless!

Black & White Floral Wedding Invitations

Florals never truly go out of style but, boy, are they VERY in style right now. In fact, the floral trend is one of the biggest of the 2015 wedding season, and I’m lovin’ every bloom-filled moment of it!

I’ll be talking much more about the floral wedding invitation trend over the next several weeks, and today I’m all about gorgeous, black and white floral invitations, which combine the classically elegant, high contrast color combo with the beauty of floral elements and patterns. Add a touch of metallic here or a bit of mint green there, and you have the ultimate in classic design with a modern twist. Here are some of my favorite black and white floral examples:
