Typography wedding invitation from MagnetStreet

Gray and celadon are subtle yet rich neutrals–sweet for spring and summer. Here’s Rachel, graphic designer and curator of Pinstripe Posh the typography invite and enclosures to tell us about her new design suite and the inspiration behind it:

I wanted to create a fresh and modern design with a focus on typography. By pairing a san serif {simple font} outlined text with a nice slab serif {thick & block-like font}, I was able to create the results I wanted. The diamond pattern that is used offers a nice alternative to the basic line. Front and center are the symbols of two rings, which tie everything together. This was such a fun design to create and it will be fun to see what colors you can change to reflect your personality!

Chic Earth Day Wedding Ideas

Apr 20 2015

Giveaway! {for 1 super cool & highly coveted} Apple Watch Sport | Enter Facebook Giveaway

Inspiration for a Chic Earth Day Wedding

“Earth Day” every day, right?! Officially April 22, Earth Day has been a day set apart and honored all around the world since 1970. This day of awareness is all about how we {individually and collectively} can come together in doing all we can, to help protect our planet by way of repurposing, reusing, and recycling. Earth Day is important! And, for reducing the wedding carbon footprint, here are 5 ideas in minimizing the waste:

5 Earth Day Wedding Ideas

  1. Venue: Broaden environmental awareness by choosing a venue that proclaims the beauty of the great outdoors. Think arboretum or garden weddings and/or local & state park settings.
  2. Local Flowers & Organic Fare: Shop the farmers market and choose local vendors for your florals & food.
  3. Earth-friendly Wedding Stationery: Look for eco-friendly papers that are made i.e.: elemental chlorine free, acid free, windpower, recycled paper, etc.
  4. Charitable Wedding Favors: Instead of buying favor gifts, gift your fave charity in need!
  5. Repurposed Decor & Attire: Bring new life to used decor and attire. Consider repurposing a previously owned wedding dress that you can alter to make it your own.

What is your favorite Earth-friendly wedding idea?

Colors: Slate | Ivory | Grass | Sage
