MY SISTER’S WEDDING INVITATIONS

wedding invitations | designlovefest

my little sister lacey got engaged over the holidays and i’m so excited for her!! he proposed while we were opening presents with my family and it was intimate and adorable. i’ve been working with her on designing her wedding invitations and wanted to show you the results! minted is a serious game changer, i’m telling you. they have SO many cool pre-made designs to choose from (see more of my favorites at the bottom). they are hip, unique, and wonderful quality.

my sister and i couldn’t be more different. she’s a nurse and i’m terrified to go to the doctor. she likes hiking and calls me “artsy.” haha. so i wasn’t sure if we were going to see eye to eye on the designs, but it all worked out perfectly and we both ended up loving the final design.

she wants a simple backyard wedding in kentucky with no frills, so we wanted to choose a design that matched that aesthetic. i love how you can even get custom stamps from minted! so cute.

we also ordered her table numbers with a nice watercolor pattern and her save the dates with marble and gold. she even got a free wedding website for people to rsvp to match her invitations and thank you notes to send out after the wedding. minted really is a one stop shop!

here are some more of my favorites from the site…

the gold foil is great quality, and the paper is nice and thick. you can order a bunch of samples like we did at $1-2 each so you can see them in person before you commit. and they take the sample price off your order total if you end up ordering through minted.

TEAL PARTY INVITATION

i get bored easily. i think i am going to start doing mood boards like this for a while. it’s a nice change, and reminds me of my good ole’ scrap booking days as a kid.

and who in the world doesn’t love the color teal? it’s such a go-to color for me. love this little mix going on here…

and happy friday to you all! have lots of fun.

i’m super excited to be adding my friend Hillary to the Casetify collection. she is the talented designer behind bliss & mischief and i love her vibe. her cases feel very 70’s and happy, i love the wildflower case with the glitter option, there are several different color options for the glitter, the silver is also very cool.

these block shop cases (1, 2, 3 , and 5) are so cool and i’m thrilled they are part of our collection! i reached out to them on whim and with my fingers crossed. i have been a long time fan of their work but didn’t know if they’d be open to putting their beautiful creations on cases, but they were! and i really really love how they turned out. they  nail the color and print combos. they have coordinating watch straps (in tartan, and sidewinder )! their cases also look super cool with glitter like this one and this.  if you’re curious, you can learn more about block shop on their site.

mike created my wedding invitations that justin and i both loved and i’m excited to add his work to our shop! he is incredibly talented and i think is pieces translate perfectly to cases and watch strap. this star on star combo is so fun. and the star design is also available on AirPod cases!

ivy is the sweetest and an incredible ceramic artist! it makes me happy to mix so many mediums of art into this collection. i love ivy’s work. joanie is currently rocking this case (which is also cute with the pink edges) and i love how her watch straps and cases look together. and she has airpod cases too (here and here) ! coming from a home with two people with AirPods having cases to set them apart is a win.

everyone was a big fan of the jessalyn cases at our last launch and we’re excited to bring two more of her abstract designs to this collection, this one and this.

last but certainly not least is this gorgeous case by la tinta! she contributed two designs to this collection and they are both a favorite of ours. the colors are really pretty.

that sums it’s up! thank you for all of the love and support and excitement you have already shared with us about the launch! it means so much to us.

OUR WEDDING INVITE PROCESS

our wedding invitations was such a special process to us, so i can’t help but share the details with ya! i’ll admit that the invites were probably the most time consuming wedding detail and there might have been a moment there where i wanted to just send out a mass text “come to our wedding!” but i’m SO happy with the end results. it was worth the efforts (and the money)! i couldn’t have done it without the help of my dear friend audrey from urbanic paper boutique! we had brainstorming meetings together, she guided me on the printing process, and even helped me assemble them. thank you aud!!

ok, now! let me breakdown our wedding invitations…

DESIGN PROCESS…

once i had my ring, my dress and the venue…the inspiration and theme began to come alive. i put together a mood board for all of our vendors (using my fave easy gomoodboard) including the designers for our invitations. i wanted it to have this southern romance, old new orleans vibe with hints of art deco, Gatsby and old hollywood.

my friend sent me this image and i fell in love with it! we hired mike willcox to design the artwork for our invite and he was a joy to work with. here is a few of his sketches in progress…
