Angela + Dominic’s Nautical & Mermaid-Themed Wedding Stationery

February 18th, 2014

Angela + Dominic's Nautical Mermaid-Themed Wedding Stationery | Design : Angela Navarra & Printing : Rolling Press

What do you get when you cross a longtime love of Disney’s The Little Mermaid with a seriously talented, about-to-be-married designer? You get these awesome, nautical and mermaid-themed save the date invites by Angela Navarra, who created these darling invites for her wedding by the sea.

Angela + Dominic's Nautical Mermaid-Themed Wedding Stationery | Design : Angela Navarra & Printing : Rolling Press

I am loving all of the little details in these fun save the date invites, from the sweet little “hello” tugboat to the “fish bubble” containing the guest’s address to all of the cute fish and crustaceans swimming in the paper sea. Add some super swirly, hand drawn lettering and a return address that’s being carried along the undersea current, and you have a unique and memorable invite turned keepsake for the lucky guests who received these cuties in their mailboxes.

Angela shares about this labor of love:

I wanted to create something that was self-contained and displayed movement, all in paper form. I gave myself a tall order to fill but, since this was for my own wedding, I had to do it!

I love fold and mail stationery, which inspired this concept, and created custom typography and illustrations, which I had a blast doing. I made sure that, when a guest opened their invite, there would be a new portion revealed under each flap that would line up with what they previously saw. It started off as an 8.5 x 4.5 envelope that opened up to a 13 x 11 invite. Finding a paper that would work for this concept was difficult, but Eugene and Molly from Rolling Press were super helpful and provided invaluable advice that made this invite shine.

Elegant Black + White Woodland Wreath Wedding Invitations | Smitten on Paper

Smitten on Paper has recently been showcasing their beautiful, new wedding invitation designs, and the elegant Woodland Wreath suite instantly caught my eye. You can customize the colors to coordinate with your wedding, but I have to say that I’m really into the classic (and totally hot right now) black and white palette shown here, paired with the minimalist modern dot envelope liner and line patterned backer, and the swashy and modern calligraphy script, which gives the design an organic edge.

2014 Wedding Invitation Trend : Romantic, Painterly Florals

January 28th, 2014

Romance is in the air this year, and Wedding Paper Divas’ 2014 wedding invitation collection showcases what has been a growing style trend, painterly florals. I’ve said before that florals never really go out of style, but it’s interesting to see how the floral style trends change from year to year. This year, designers seem to be moving away from the more stylized floral designs that have been hugely popular over the past few years and going for a more realistic look that’s evocative and romantic, with deep, rich colors and ultra elegant, understated typographic details.

These invitation designs from Claire Pettibone, BHLDN, and Baumbirdy  for Wedding Paper Divas epitomize this year’s florals:
