Behind the Design: Modern Fairytale

Categories Inspiration

Welcome to Behind the Design, our blog series that takes a peek into the inspiration behind the design–and from the designer’s point of view. Here’s Rachel to tell us about Modern Fairytale, a Save the Date design with a classic graphic element and a large background photo.

“This design was so much fun to create! It has a large photo in the background and a graphic element on top. On Modern Fairytale, the organic “laurel leaf” shape is fun, playful and whimsical. You can personalize this design with richer colors to get a classic or vintage feeling or change it up and use a bright pop of color to really set the stage for your wedding. Use your imagination and play around with the images, colors and even fonts in this design–just a few simple tweaks can completely change the look and feel of your Save the Date!”

Browse the Modern Fairytale, Save the Date Magnet suite and personalize with your colors and fonts!

Romantic Vintage California Wedding

Categories Real Weddings

Jessica and Joseph have known each other since they were kids. Jessica said, “Back in grade school I used to be close with his sister. One time I had slept over at her house for her birthday slumber party and woke up to find whipped cream on my face (my prize for falling asleep first). When I sprang up, turned around, and saw her cute older brother I didn’t say, “Nice to meet you, I’m your future.” Little did they know, that one day, all of the silliness would turn into something serious–that they would fall in love and be each other’s everything.

Jessica and Joseph wanted a simple, romantic vintage vibe for their wedding–one that wouldn’t break the bank! And through the help of Jessica’s mom, aunt, sister and of course, Pinterest, that’s exactly what they got. Thanks to Looking Glass Photography Studio, this romantic wedding has many lovely details to fall in love with–from the pre-ceremony gifts to each other to all the DIY vintage details. Enjoy.

Color Monday: Downton Abbey Style

Categories Inspiration

Did you watch it? No, not The Bachelor … DOWNTON ABBEY?

Enjoy today’s Color Monday–an elegant tribute to the very stylish era that was the 1920′s. The rich color scheme is a proud testimony to the bold and vivacious attitude of the age. One iconic motif we didn’t elaborate too much on in this post, was Peacock feathers. For this inspiration, we took the liberty of personalizing Peacocks and Paisley–a Pocket Wedding Invitation design that celebrates this motif in a unique and ornate way. A versatile design, Peacocks and Paisley is ideal for an Art Deco wedding style but can be personalized in any color scheme. {Feel free to check out the original color scheme and the entire Design Suite.}

1920′s Wedding Inspiration

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

Just two more days … that’s all we have to wait for Downton Abbey’s season 4 to begin. Set in the 1920′s, the styling is sure to be as exquisite as the first three seasons–from the dropped-waist tea dresses to the tea cups. But even if you haven’t jumped on board the Downton Abbey swoon train, a 1920′s wedding style is a look to behold and covet. If you’re interested in borrowing from this era–you can make a huge fashion statement with even just a few vintage details.  Here are 5 Art Deco design elements from the 1920′s to incorporate into your look and wedding stationery.

Art Deco Design Elements for a 1920′s Wedding Look


Filigree, Gold Leaf and Laurel Wreath

Artistic motifs from the 1920′s included gold leaf, decorative filigree designs, and the iconic laurel wreath. Be inspired by ornate Grecian-inspired headbands, bracelets and necklaces. Carrying an ornamental motif such as one of these onto your wedding stationery pieces will make for a gorgeous 1920′s style statement. The simplicity of the laurel wreath featured below on the Modern Fairytale  Save the Date Card {left} is bold, yet soft and lovely.  And with a more whimsical and playful feel, is the graphic floral wreath of Woodland Charms Square Wedding Invitation {bottom}–perfect for garden and woodland weddings.

Art Deco Geometric Design, Colors & Swirls

Fashion meets architecture with an Art Deco look. Swirls, tiers, geometric shapes, bold and rich colors are what define this stylish era. Think lavish ornamentation–from simple to swanky. Depicting this era can be easily accomplished through the right decorative font on your wedding stationery. Typefaces of the 20′s were everything from chunky and bold, to thin and streamlined. Deco Glam Pocket Wedding Invitation offers a classic Art Deco look featuring characteristic fonts, geometric shapes and an iconic color scheme.

Decorative Feathers

From ostrich to peacock, feathers played a major part in the role of fashion in the 1920′s. How can you grace your wedding aesthetic and stationery with this elegant and edgy look? Include feathers in just about every aspect of the wedding–from attire to flowers to décor. Whispering Feather is a wedding invitation design that gives a subtle nod to this sophisticated motif.

Timeless Lace

Is there anything more romantic and feminine than lace? You can even weave the look of this gorgeous textile onto your wedding stationery pieces. Featured below is Modern Honeycomb Lace Save the Date Magnet. Classy and ethereal, guests will love poring over this soft and sweet design while taking in your wedding day details too.

Florals in Fashion 

Ornate flower arrangements were a sight to see during the 1920′s but simple wedding bouquets were often the most popular option–with Calla lilies being among the most sought after flower. These long, trumpet-shaped beauties are an exquisite choice for a formal black and white color scheme–like the featured Lilies in Love Gate-fold Wedding Invitation below.
