I don’t like to play favorites with my custom wedding invitations, but I must say that these patterned vertical tri-panel wedding invitations are everything. The green, navy and gray flourish pattern frames the dark navy blue invitation panels giving it such a sophisticated yet elegant and modern look. The pattern continues down to the tear-off RSVP postcard with a reversed white background. The combination of a swirly script font with a simple block small caps font and dividing lines give the tall invitation a poster style resemblance. The matching tall & thin ceremony programs incorporate the same colors, fonts and pattern, with contrasting navy and cream stripes on the back.

With bright colors and fun fonts, these invitations are a great way to set the tone for any informal event – from baby or bridal showers to engagement or housewarming parties to barbeques or birthdays. For a “diaper party” for the dad-to-be, the Beer, Diapers and BBQ header goes great with a vintage poster style invitation, or a gingham, western themed invitation. The Cirque du Bebe circus poster invitation with acrobats and elephant is perfect for a circus themed baby shower. The vintage poster style invitation can be designed for any event – even wedding invitations!

This modern day-of stationery features a thick dark gray with thin purple line border and purple dot accents. Rather than the traditional ceremony programs with the Duke Chapel illustration on the front, we added a modern twist with bold contrasting fonts and a clean layout, making them perfect for this bride’s modern, chic wedding. And rather than the standard tented escort cards, we created small table number cards to slip into mini black envelopes. Custom name labels wrapped around the envelopes and corresponded with the matching table numbers. Thanks to Orangerie Events for requesting our services for these fun and creative ceremony programs, table numbers and escort cards for their bride’s Duke Chapel wedding and Nasher Art Museum reception.

This creative bride came to us wanting unique beach themed wedding invitations for her October beach wedding. Already having cute wording in mind, she had a vision for beach invitations with shades of blues and greens, several fun fonts, with starfish and the ocean. We appreciated the challenge of including all the elements she requested into beautiful, unique wedding invitations. Just to show you have perfectly the design, wording and fonts turned out together, we have included large, close-ups of the invitation and RSVP postcard below.

This bride loves the 50s and wanted her wedding invitations to depict that style. Her save-the-date postcards set the tone with a vintage sign look and fonts that would carry on throughout her stationery suite. The black and cream poster style invitations looked old-fashioned with a scroll border and embellishments intertwined with a heavy text layout. To add a punch of color, we included fall colors as accents in the ceremony programs and favor bookmarks.
