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!

Today’s super sweet invitation crush comes to us from Renee Nicole Design, which launched just this past May and already has a lovely collection of wedding invitation sets and holiday party invites available. The Modern Love Story wedding suite is right up my chevron-loving alley, showcasing whimsical typography with mid-century touches and darling heart and banner motifs. I’m really digging the belly band detail, which features a heart monogram and adds a sweet something to the entire suite, as well as the gorgeous gray and minty teal color palette. But the palette can be customized to your needs, so no worries if gray and minty teal aren’t your thing.
Get ready for some Modern Love Story eye candy!

KeeganMeegan & Co’s portfolio is filled with incredible, illustrated letterpress wedding invitations, and I’m completely enamored with this crush-worthy, custom suite that they created for Ash & Jason’s August wedding.
The fully custom, illustrated wedding invitation suite was designed with care for Ash & Jason’s very “country Iowa” wedding, and the creative crew at KeeganMeegan obviously had much fun working with the lovely couple on this unique project. The suite includes a custom art print invitation featuring a sweet illustration of the couple, along with coordinating response cards, invitation cards, and matching envelopes. The palette of rich, deep green and warm, golden yellow (PMS 363U and 1235U, respectively) brings such a cozy and inviting tone to this unique, country-inspired suite.
