Pretty in Print Wedding Invitations

Invitations with playful details add personality to your big day.

{1} Trent and Ryan Young didn’t want anything formal or fussy for their December wedding. “None of that ‘Please honor us with your presence’ stuff!” laughs Amy. They asked designer My Choi of PaperThick Ink for an invitation that would reflect their casual, circus-inspired wedding. Choi chose a super-smooth black matte cardstock to call to mind a chalkboard and printed it with pretty white calligraphy to lend a hand-painted vibe. The vertical polka dot print envelope was a delightfully unexpected way to pull the suite together.

{2} Fresh and modern was the name of the game when it came to Sarah Michelle and Bobby Michael’s wedding invitations. They asked Gretchen Berry of Gretchen Berry Design Co. for a design that was neither overtly feminine nor masculine, just totally “them.” The festive triangle print she made incorporated their wedding’s vibrant color scheme in oranges and minty blue-greens. The thick cotton-stock paper felt rich and luxurious, while the offset printing process created a sleek look.

{3} For their relaxed and elegant weekend getaway in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Kelly Gaspar and Tor Ingstad chose wedding invitations that gave guests a peek at the fun to come. Paperista owner Antoinette Ramos let the save-the-dates set the tone, with a lighthearted balloon attached to preview the wedding’s celebratory mood. The formal invitation arrived in a presentation box lined with custom-made fabric and matching pillow, tied with twine, to let guests know this ranch wedding would be both rustic and sophisticated.

{4} MaeMae Paperie owner Megan Gonzalez created this sweet pink-and-white invitation suite, inspired by intimate weddings with “hand-me-down elements that reflect the couple’s heritage,” says Gonzalez. The Norwegian folk-inspired pattern lining the envelope is what she calls a “design ingredient”: Using the text as a starting point, she sprinkled those design elements across the pages to create a beautiful series that flows perfectly together without feeling matchy-matchy.

{5} For their wedding invitations, Kathryne Hayden and Joseph Dunham were looking to mirror the chic, country club vibe of their golf club venue. “Kathryne has a classic American kind of style,” says designer Katie Murphy. Katie’s preppy design was a perfect fit, with a lattice- and calligraphy-inspired border. The peach invitations arrived in bold orange tri-fold envelopes wrapped with coordinating baker’s twine. Incorporating the couple’s tangelo-orange color scheme made the invitation bright and cheery while retaining a classic elegance.
