wordshop wedding: dana & gus

danagus_vailwedding

Dana & Gus are one of the sweetest, most elegant couples we’ve ever worked with, and they’re invitations exuded not only their lovely attitudes, but they’re AMAZING wedding. Their black tie event brought in soft details to their rustic venue for an elegant and romantic evening. We love the touches of gold foil combined with black letterpress and light tan accents – a killer neutral palette is always a good idea.

wordshop wedding: lauren & adam

We always say that the invitation is the first thing that guests see that tells them what they can expect during a wedding, and this couple’s story was cohesive from start to finish. From the gold foil on the black invitation to the clock tower ceremony to the sparkler send off, these guys got it right. Everything moves fluidly and flawlessly from one thing to the next. We love the moody and festive feel to the entire event – perfect for that Denver, Colorado winter wedding.

The diagonal layout is such a cool spin to a traditional invitation, and the postcard adds even more playfulness.

Seriously though, check out that foil! Talk about some drama.

Classic Romantic Downtown Denver Wedding

There is nothing quite like the classic romance that accompanies a blush and gold downtown Denver wedding. Kristin and Jeffery tied the knot at The Four Seasons Hotel Denver and completely transformed the location with the help of We Tie The Knots wedding coordinator. All the details came together beautifully. We were so excited to be a part of this gorgeous event by providing the wedding paper. We created a custom invitation that included blush and gold calligraphy having been letterpress printed. We even used blush paper for some of the inserts which created a gorgeous contrast. We carried the look into her day of pieces by using blush paper for her letterpress printed place cards and gold shimmer paper for her letterpress printed menu cards. We love how beautiful wedding day of paper ties the whole look together. It really showcases the attention to detail for the whole event. Congratulations Kristin and Jeffery and thank you for letting us be a part of your special day.

our current wedding invitation faves

Wedding invitations are so much more important than simply telling people where to be and when. They imply the mood, theme, and general tone of the wedding. They can say “you better wear a black tie or you will look like a fool” or “we plan to party all night long (so girl, bring a back up pair of shoes)” without even uttering a word. The first two questions we always ask our brides are “Where and when is the wedding?” and “What is the overall feel and/or message you want your invitations to convey?” You’d be amazed by the combination of answers, which is why no two invitations are alike. Yes, they may have some similar characteristics like wording or color scheme, but each wedding invitation is still uniquely you.

We’ve rounded up some of our current favorite wedding invitations and are excited to share. Maybe one will feel like your dream wedding invitation has materialized before your very eyes, or you’ll be inspired by a sample of wording.

Rustic Modern gold foil and burgundy wedding invitations

Gold foil is so hot right now and we’re loving it! We like that it can be dressed up or dressed down. This invitation is a perfect combination of whimsy and modern. The gold foil makes it playful, eye catching and adds dimension to the monochromatic look.

Now take this dark grey and gold foil wedding invitation. It’s much more traditional than the first even though they share similar elements – floral/earthy motif, modern script, gold foil printing etc. If you were to receive this invitation in the mail, you had better get your best cocktail dress out from the back of your closet because the use of gold foil in this invitation makes it much more glitzy.

Ah, the kraft paper wedding invitation. We love you and never tire of your existence. This square kraft paper wedding invitation with white letterpress ink is both modern (thank you square format) and earthy (thank you flowers and brown natural paper). We love pairing these “brown paper bag” wedding invitations (as some people like to call them) with classy outdoor wedding venues.

Not ready to commit 100% to kraft paper? Or maybe you want to incorporate other colors that don’t print well on the darker paper? Backer cards and envelopes are the way to go. We love backer cards because it places more emphasis on the main invitation and thickens the paper. Likewise kraft envelopes draw attention and stand out in the mail pile full of bills. There is no way your guests will miss this.

Edge painting on a letterpress wedding invitation is like hot fudge on a ice cream sundae. Ice cream is already good, and we  L O V E  ice cream, but hot fudge takes the yumminess to the next level. Its an extra surprise that makes everything better. Ugh, now we want ice cream.

Wood Wedding Invitations Screen Printed

Want to have your invitations really stand out? Printing on wood is one of our favorites. The wood veneer wedding invitation prints best when letterpress or screen printed.

Love the look of wood printing but need to stay budget conscious? Printing a faux wood finish on paper is a great way to achieve a similar look while staying with a more affordable printing method. These rustic wood mountain wedding invitations are ideal for the western wedding. Unless otherwise mentioned, feel free to wear those cute little cowgirl boots you’ve got stashed.

We hope this helped spark some wedding invitation ideas. We have so many design and budget options that there is something for everyone.

wordshop wedding: katie & jeff

We have the privilege of working with brides from all over, but every now and then we get to work with one who lives in the neighborhood. We love our little nook in town and the amazing people who live near by. Katie was one of those neighborhood brides who we instantly fell in love with. Seriously though, when can we come over for dinner? Check out her amazing wedding at the Arrowhead Golf Club, and the lovely custom letterpress invitations we designed for her.
