Vintage Inspired Save the Dates by Hello Tenfold

Vintage Inspired Save the Date Cards

I featured these lovely, vintage-inspired save the date cards from Hello Tenfold over on Paper Crave yesterday, but I’d be remiss in my duties as a hopelessly crushing invitation addict if I didn’t add them to my collection over here.

Ellie from Hello Tenfold was inspired by Art Nouveau designs and classic, vintage wedding style to create these soft and beautiful save the dates, which feature many gorgeous details, including a fantastic mix of vintage style fonts and a floral-embellished frame. This design is available in the Hello Tenfold shop as postcards or with envelopes and can be customized with your own colors and information. You can see the beautiful inspiration board for this lovely project over at Paper Crave.

Elegant Blue + Celadon Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Elegant Blue Lettepress Wedding Invitations

One word about these invitations: texture. Oh, and elegant. And gorgeous. I guess that’s more than one word, huh? These custom letterpress wedding invitations for Hallie and Jonathan from Lucky Luxe are simply stunning, and the texture, wow, the texture. The letterpress printed florals on the invitation feature details so fine that I immediately thought of fingerprints, and the vintage blue and celadon color palette is so refined and elegant. I’m also gaga over the mix of traditional type with kraft paper on the letterpressed envelopes.

Drool …. gorgeous texture:

Elegant Grey & White Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Grey White Letterpress Wedding Invitations

I spotted these gorgeous letterpress wedding invitations a little while back on the Flickr photostream of Chris Hannah, the groom and designer of the ultra modern, elegant invites, and it was crush at first sight. While I love bright, bold color in invitations, I’ve also discovered that I have a weakness for monochromatic designs, especially when they’re as well done as this. The white/grey duplex paper, the symbols that thread throughout the suite, the sophisticated script font – everything about these invitations is simply lovely. Letterpress printing was done by Blush, a fantastic UK based letterpress printing studio.

New Year’s Eve Party Invitations

New Year’s Eve party invitations tend to be a bit trickier to find, especially in the independent invitation design shops, but I did some searching around and put together a stylish little collection of bubbly invites that would all be great choices for one of the most celebrated nights of the year.

Fall Harvest Wedding Invitations by Thoughtful Day

These sweet fall harvest wedding invitations by Thoughtful Day bring to mind autumn leaves, warm apple cider, and all of the things that are so special about fall. The hand drawn illustrations remind me of mid-century children’s books, and the the typography enhances the whimsical feel of these lovely invitations, which came packaged in a screenprinted burlap sack for an extra harvest-y feel.

Laura + Doug’s Vintage Floral Wedding Invitations

Chartreuse Vintage Floral Wedding Invitations

Designer Krista McCormick sent over these gorgeous green wedding invitations that she created for Laura and Doug, and the lovely shades of green and chartreuse that run through the suite and detail pieces were a perfect fit for the couple’s vintage-inspired outdoor wedding. Ornate floral illustrations, with the wedding date cleverly embedded within, and an upscale script font contribute to the fresh, elegant feel of the entire suite. Printing was done by Inviteink.

Quirky Travel Themed Wedding Invitations

Quirky Travel Themed Wedding Invitations

Ooh, I cannot get enough of the awesome travel-themed wedding invitations. I spotted this chic, modern wedding suite by Kathleen Shannon over at Design Crush, and it was squee at first sight. The couple, Vanessa and George, met while working for the State Department in Iraq, and they love traveling, maps, Wes Anderson movies, and giant squids. Giant squids, you say? I have to agree, giant squids are pretty awesome. The couple also wanted to include pi, as well as Par Avion written in Persian, somewhere in the suite. This couple is so cool.

Kathleen used Anderson’s The Life Aquatic as inspiration for the suite and brought all of the couple’s fun and quirky element ideas together to create pieces that are simply irresistible, with luggage tag RSVP cards, airmail themed save the dates (featuring the aforementioned Par Avion in Persian), and an invitation that includes nautical elements and a hint of a giant squid.
