Colorado Bride Wedding Style | The rustic mountain wedding 5 ways

We love being a wedding stationery store in Denver Colorado. We get to see so many cool interpretations on the Colorado mountain wedding. We love how the couple’s wedding style can transform a well loved wedding venue into something all their own. We’ve compiled some of our favorite wedding looks for this season and paired them with wedding invitations made by yours truely.

Woodsy Rustic Colorado Mountain Wedding

One of our all time favorite interpretations of the Colorado mountain wedding is the woodsy rustic approach. This laid back vibe embraces our favorite thing about the mountains, trees (wood grain pattern is a must!), a camp fire with s’mores, and having fun with family and friends.Colorado Wood Wedding Invitations | via wordshop Denver

Our favorite wedding invitation pairing with this look is all about texture. This mountain wedding invitation is adhered to real wood, giving it a nice weight and sophistication. The tag tied with bakers twine is a fun interactive element for guests, as well as a budget friendly option for brides who need just a few more details printed.

Indie Rustic Mountain Wedding

There is something so whimsical about a rustic indie inspired wedding. We just can’t get enough! Maybe it’s because it speaks to our Free People loving souls. Mismatched bridesmaid dresses is a must and flowers flowers everywhere.Indie Rustic Bohemian Wedding Invitation | via wordshop

These indie rustic wedding invitations are all about simplicity with a touch of playfulness. The envelope liner adds dimension without overshadowing the main invitation. The little icons on the insert card are a fun visual to let guests know wedding details, and the kraft envelope keeps it rustic and grounded.

Rustic Elegant Colorado Wedding

Getting married in the mountains of Colorado doesn’t always mean you have to wear your cowgirl boots. Getting married in Aspen or Vail? Guests can still wear cocktail or black tie to dress up that mountain backdrop. With this look, location and invitations tell your guests what to expect.Rustic elegant mountain wedding invitations printed with gold foil

Our trick to achieving the perfect rustic elegant wedding invitation is in the printing method and paper quality. These particular invitations have gold foil, black letterpress and edge painting that make for a real stunner. The wood grain design is subtle and says “yes we’re getting married in the mountains, but we won’t be camping afterwards. So bring your best little black dress and lets toast with champagne while we dance the night away.”

Industrial Rustic Colorado Wedding

Getting married in downtown Denver at a super cool industrial rustic site like Blanc? Or maybe your style is generally more playful, modern and a touch edgy. We love how visually interesting all these details add up to be and your guests will love it too.Modern Geometric Industrial Wedding Invitations | via wordshop

To get such vibrant colors with a large coverage area, printing digital is the best way to go. It gives you the freedom to have as many colors as you like without any additional printing costs. This particular geometric invitation was printed on cotton paper for added softness and sophistication. Trust us, if you haven’t felt cotton paper yet, it’s so yummy that you’ll never want to put it down.

Classic Traditional Mountain Wedding

Planning a timeless wedding? Whether you’re an east coast girl recently relocated to the Rocky Mountains, or you are naturally drawn to classic details, we’ll help you still love your wedding invitations 25+ years down the road.Traditional Classic Mountain Wedding Invitations | via wordshop

Thermography printing is a beautiful and timeless printing method at a very affordable price point. We love how this classic grey wedding invitation has the traditional element of an all script font, but with an updated style. It doesn’t feel stuffy and will stand the test of time and yearly wedding trends. The subtle mountain motifs on the additional inserts keep the main invitation classic, while tying in a mountain setting overall on the invitation.

Whatever your Colorado mountain wedding style or invitation budget, we have all options. We love being a part of your wedding and helping you interpret your wedding paper style.

Spring Denver Wedding Ideas

We have spring fever here at wordshop and what better way to add fuel to our fire by sharing a gorgeous wedding with ya. This downtown Denver wedding will make all your dreams come true with it’s sweet floral arrangements, gorgeous petal inspired wedding dress, classic urban feel and of course two people who madly love each other. You can practically feel the joy radiating from these photos. Working with them was a dream. We love how playful their rehearsal dinner invitations were with casual fonts and a great modern skyline. Since their wedding leaned more traditional, we kept a more classic feel for the main invitation. These beauties were thermography printed in grey ink on super thick ivory embossed square paper. Perfection. Thank you Jen & Chris 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.

Square kraft invitation with white letterpress ink | via Wordshop, Denver CO

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.

Eliza and Jeffrey got married at the Lyons Farmette in Lyons Colorado. We love the vibrant vintage look they brought to the farm and personality in every detail. We especially love Eliza’s dress! Can you say AMAZING?! We incorporated the vintage chalkboard feel for the wedding invitations but used a natural paper to give reference to the rustic farm. We still love these invitations and hope you do too!
