Modern Wedding Invitations in Black and White

By Autumn

Sometimes simplicity says it all.  These bold modern wedding invitations in black and white are truly stunning.  A minimalist block font monogram, black borders, a contemporary script and a gorgeous diagonal striped envelope liner are all that’s needed to take these contemporary wedding invitations to the next level.

The design shown, our Modern Luxe wedding invitations, has a full line of options such as enclosures, return and guest addressing, a belly band (also called invitation wrapper) and an envelope liner.  Any combination of these options can be ordered to create a wedding invitation suite that fits your needs and budget.  This particular design looks absolutely amazing when numerous enclosures are layered together and secured with the optional belly band, so we highly recommend at least one additional enclosure.  Enclosures can be used for any information such as reception location, accommodations info, activities, registry and more.

Beyond the bold borders, our favorite part of this modern wedding invitation design is the bold monogram styled in a classic gothic typeface.  The clean lines of the font give it a sense of importance, which really highlights the couple’s initials and the enclosure card headings.

While we do love the minimalist black and white feel, our Modern Luxe design looks amazing in any number of color combinations.  To order this design, head to the Modern Luxe product page on our website and get started!

Aquamarine Wedding Inspiration

By Ali

Aquamarine is perfect for just about every wedding type! From upscale city weddings to intimate beach ceremonies, aquamarine can be used to create a feeling that is light, yet chic. We love the versatility of aquamarine! Mix with neutrals like ivory and charcoal for a sophisticated look, or pair with peach or yellow for a bright, playful theme! Here’s a bit of our favorite aquamarine wedding inspiration.

Romantic Purple Wedding Inspiration

By Autumn

Rather than using a single, monochromatic shade of purple for your wedding, we think that using shades of purple creates a much more modern and contemporary look!  Inspired by our post on these two toned modern purple wedding invitations, we put together a little purple wedding inspiration taken from our purple wedding board on Pinterest.

While we love the multiple shades of purple used on our Modern Luxe wedding invites (this set featured was done in amethyst, grape and eggplant), doing multiple shades of purple also works very well in the flower bouquets and centerpieces, along with the pretty ombre wedding cake above.  In addition to using multiple hues of violet on individual items, you can also break things up by highlighting different shades of purple in different parts of your decor.  The lilac flats featured above really strike a bold contrast against the vibrant grape chocolate pastries.

Because the first preview of your big day starts with the wedding invitations, your stationery is an excellent jumping off point for your overall color palette.  Don’t be afraid to play with color, you might be surprised at the fun combinations you can come up with!

Wedding Hankies and Wedding Invitations

By Autumn

I’m really excited about today’s post.  Our friends Steve and Jennifer over at Bumblebee Linens shared one of their gorgeous vintage bridal hankies with us and I was thrilled to get to use it in our latest photo shoot!  Their wedding handkerchiefs are absolutely gorgeous and the quality is outstanding.  Delicate lace embroidery, pretty whites, quality fabric.  We’re totally in love.

Bridal Hankies Wedding Handkerchief
Decorative handkerchiefs are often used during the ceremony to blot away those emotional tears of joy.  Rather than having a plain hankie, something with a delicate, vintage look goes much nicer with the overall look of a wedding.  These hankies can also be used as an alternative to standard catering napkins at the reception, giving your event a styled, romantic and vintage feel.  We had a great time incorporating them as a decor element when styling our wedding invitation pictures.

Shown above is our Script Elegance wedding invitation.  We love the simple and timeless feel of this invitation mixed with the slightly vintage and romantic look of the lace embroidery.  We highly recommend mixing texture with design when styling your wedding decor elements.
