Beautiful Burgundy Florals and Feathers Wedding Stationery Suite

Burgundy watercolor floral feathers wedding invitation set
Burgundy watercolor floral feathers wedding invitation set

Where I live on Canada’s east coast, we have had a very long, mild autumn, so the vivid fall colors have been outside my office window for an extended period of time, which is great because I do love the fall. I love it for lots of reasons, but most of all because it’s when I have the most time to create new designs.

autumn burgundy wedding flowersWith all the rich autumn colors, I felt like working on a new wedding suite that was rich in deep colors like burgundy, aubergine purple, marsala red, rust, olive green etc. I’ve been seeing so many gorgeous fall wedding bouquets that use those colors that I wanted to design something that had enough colors in it that the wedding color theme could have a variety of colors and warm tones in it instead of just one or two. I like how white contrasts with the deep colors, but I also wanted to make sure there was enough warmth to the suite so I added in a creamy butter yellow / ivory border with decorative simulated gold foil to make accessorizing the attendants and reception decor easy.

I’ve also seen the burgundy paired with silver and jade greens but I find them colder looking, which might suit a late fall wedding, but I wanted this set to be suitable for any season. I think the bold watercolor floral pattern is classic and sophisticated. With the mix of assorted purple, orange, and brown feathers, you can also lean towards a more Bohemian wedding theme if you wanted to go with a more wildflower and feather look.

burgundy pink rustic wedding bouquetThis great burgundy watercolor florals wedding invitation suite can be dressed up or dressed down depending on your taste and budget. Pull out all the stops and go full-on gold glamour with towering centerpieces filled with ivory, burgundy, aubergine, and red roses or peonies with feathers and greenery cascading down from them, or go with something looser like a wildflower bouquet with simple pops of burgundy and a gold ribbon.

You can choose soft and romantic bridesmaid dresses in pale yellow and then pick up the burgundy colors in their bouquets or do mix and match bridesmaid dresses in the various colors from the invitation. It is such a versatile invitation suite that you can really get creative with your wedding attendants attire, church and venue decorations, flowers, and even the cake. Add more or less gold, depending on how warm or glitzy you want things to look. I know I would have an absolute ball planning a wedding based on this burgundy floral wedding suite. I hope you do too!

I designed a number of coordinating pieces in the suite, including enclosure cards, address labels, thank you card, favor tags, stickers and envelope seals, place cards, and a wedding program. I’ll likely be adding more matching pieces, but if there is something specific that you want that you don’t see, drop me an email and I’ll be happy to make up what you need.

Christmas and Holiday Party Event Invitations

I don’t know about you, but once the calendar rolls over to September, I find myself starting to think about Christmas and the whole holiday season. I start looking for gifts to pick up here and there before the mad rush. I start to look at new recipes and decor. It’s always fun browsing through all the new decorations for the home and yard and trying to come up with what sort of look I want everything to have. I start to wonder about whether I’ll be throwing a party of some kind or attending any office or home parties over the holidays.

September is a great time to start thinking about all things festive and it’s certainly not too early to start planning a holiday party. Many company office parties, corporate events, fundraisers, and business open houses happen in early December, often times because availability dwindles as December rolls by. Early December to mid-December is perfect for a holiday office party or event because it helps to get everyone in the spirit, and that good cheer usually keeps going right into the New Year.

Whether you are wanting a rustic plaid winter theme; a red and white snowflake theme; a red, green and gold theme; or a midnight navy and gold theme, I think you’ll agree that any of these designs shown here would certainly set the tone for your special occasion.

I hope these pretty winter party invitations inspire you to get planning your own festive celebration like a house party, office party, company party, winter ball, charity gala or open house. I suggest the ice pearl paper for any of the gold type designs as it has a subtle sparkle that works so well with simulated gold effects and on lighter colors like white. And if you are planning an upscale, high-end event, please consider double thick ice pearl paper for a gorgeous look and feel. Double thick ice pearl paper is available as an upgrade after purchase, so contact me for a quote on that if you really want to wow your guests. A minimum of 25 invites apply to the double thick papers (25, 50, 60, 70, 80 etc.).

Purple Blue Bohemian Wildflower Wedding Invitation Set

Smokey blue lavender purple boho wildflowers wedding invitation set
There is something about spring that I have always loved. Whether it’s the longer days with more sunshine or the feeling of rebirth and renewal that it is in the air, I find myself thinking of happy times like spring and summer weddings. When inspiration strikes I tend to go with the flow, so even though I should be planning for fall and winter wedding stationery suites, I was side-tracked by these pretty watercolor wildflower florals and had to spend a little time making up a Bohemian wildflower floral wedding invitation suite.

purple blue bohemian wildflower wreath photo optional wedding save the date announcementPerhaps someone is recently engaged and planning a spring or summer wedding for next year, in which case, have I got the save the date card for you! Just take a look at the above photo optional dusty blue purple wildflower watercolor wreath save the date card and I think you’ll agree that it would make a lovely announcement for your upcoming nuptials.

I saw the prettiest dusty blue bridesmaid dress a few weeks ago and it has been on my mind ever since because it was a color that I had never really thought to use on a wedding invitation before. So, even though there are other soft pastel colors in this boho chic watercolors wildflowers wedding invitation suite design, like peach, plum, and lavender purple, I decided to use the smokey blue as the main color that I paired with it. I’m sure there are a million names for the shade of blue that is in the wedding design, such as slate blue, dusk blue, smoke blue, cornflower blue and the like. What I like about it is that it mixes so well with the other colors on the design, like the various shades of green and brown.

Each piece in this purple and blue watercolor wildflowers wedding suite features a wreath, swag, or bouquet of pretty multi-colored watercolor wildflower flowers and foliage in soft, neutral pastels. The wedding invitation is in a landscape layout that also has a left-hand side band of soft taupe or gray with a decorative edge on it for the wildflowers to nestle into. Even though I was picturing this suite used for a modern Bohemian wedding, I still wanted it to look elegant, not messy, so I chose a formal script font instead of the more messy looking hand-written type fonts that you see so much of nowadays. I also added on an ornate scroll decoration in purple to add a little extra elegance to the overall look.

If you are planning a spring, summer, or fall wedding that features a bohemian vibe and/or pastel shades of coral, blue, green, lilac, and plum, then I think you might like the versatility of this soft and romantic dusty blue and lavender purple watercolor wildflowers wedding invitation suite. The wedding save the date card and the wedding invitation also allow for extra wording or a photo to be added onto the dusty blue backs which help make this a very affordable wedding stationery suite as you can add your accommodations, directions, or any other wedding details that you want to pass along on the wedding invitation etc., which will save having to buy the extra enclosure cards. But, should you want to send out a full wedding stationery suite, there are several different sized cards that you can use for RSVP details or other information.

I also created a matching thank you card, favor tags and address labels with more matching pieces to come and/or are available upon request. If you’d prefer that the dusty blue is changed to one of the other colors used in the design, mention it when you order and I’ll be happy to change that for you.

Royal Blue Gold Joined Hearts Jewel Wedding Invitation Set

Royal blue gold floral joined hearts jewel photo wedding invitation and reply card
Royal blue gold floral joined hearts jewel photo wedding invitation and reply card
Over the years I have had many color combination requests from people. One combination that has been quite popular, especially with African-American couples planning a wedding, is the color scheme of blue and gold. The shades of blue have varied from vibrant cobalt blue to royal blue to navy blue and lots of shades in between.​ Using blue for your wedding color will create a relaxing and peaceful mood for your wedding. This post will focus on the royal blue to navy blue shades and feature my royal blue and gold joined hearts jewel wedding invitation stationery designs.

I think anytime you incorporate gold into a wedding that you are going for an upscale, elegant type of look. I don’t see metallics going out of style anytime soon, either. I think the types of metals will come and go, changing from silver one year, to rose gold the next, and to gold leaf the next, just as the type of metal used on wedding rings changes over time. There are also so many ways to incorporate gold into your decor that achieving that eye-popping wow factor at your venue is very easy and affordable with the help of special lighting and glittery gold accents of confetti, ribbons, bows, streamers, balloons etc. Throw in some crystals to bounce around some more light and you’ll have a sparkling, glitzy looking venue fit for a King and Queen.

And speaking of King and Queen, royal blue is a great color to pair with the gold. There are thousands of shades of royal blue that you can choose from for the wedding party attire and decor ideas. I personally really like a wedding party that uses a variety of shades of royal blue in the bridesmaid dresses from lighter shades to darker. All the bridesmaids can find a shade that works best for them and the variety of shades will look much nicer in photos than they would if everyone was in the same shade of blue. instead of a mass of blue all the same color, your photos will have more contrast and detail. It also helps if you can be a bit more fluid with the shades of royal blue because you’ll soon find out that getting everything to match perfectly, just won’t happen when you choose royal blue as your wedding color.

I created the two different royal blue and gold wedding invitation designs as shown in this post. Both sets have simulated gold foil, a printed on ribbon and bow, and a printed diamond and faux glitter joined hearts jewel brooch. If you are familiar with my style at all, then these new designs are in keeping with my goal of giving you elegant looking printed invitations that give you the look of real embellishments but that won’t break the bank or leave you dealing with ribbons to tie or messy glitter. Just think of all the money you’ll save for the honeymoon!

Show-off those awesome engagement photos you had taken right on your wedding invitation!​ The royal blue and gold photo template wedding invitation design has an all over small floral pattern that has heart shaped leaves in it. If that’s not your thing but you still want to show off a great photo of the two of you, then the​​ royal blue and gold photo save the date card is a nice choice to announce the upcoming nuptials and to give a preview of your royal blue and gold wedding theme.​ ​It can also be used as an engagement announcement.

The front of the​ non photo royal blue and gold floral wedding invitation​ ​design has the names of the bride and groom in an elegant cursive font​ ​in gold.​ ​Below the ribbon image on the front there is the popular verse “This day I will marry my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love”. That verse can be removed or changed to a Bible verse, special poem or quote that is important to you both.

The backs of either of these romantic royal blue and gold wedding invitations have an ornate scroll frame​ ​that surrounds your text. Depending on what wording you choose, there may be room to add on reception details and/or RSVP information which would cut down on enclosure cards, allowing you to possibly splurge on ice pearl paper and gold leaf envelopes which would​ look awesome. If you want an even nicer look, contact me about double thick ice pearl paper, belly bands, and/or envelope liners.

Pastel Succulent Wedding Invitation Set

Pastel succulent wedding invitation set
Pastel succulents wedding invitation set

When cacti and succulents started showing up on the wedding scene, I admit that the look didn’t really do much for me. As with everything, though, styles come and go and what I like at one time I dislike at another. Case in point: 90s bangs. Such is the case with succulent weddings.

Succulents are plants that have some parts that are thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. Succulents are often grown as ornamental plants because of their striking and unusual appearance. The habitats of these water preserving plants are often in areas with high temperatures and low rainfall, which make them perfect for use on a hot spring or summer wedding day. In horticultural use, the term succulent regularly excludes cacti but I’ll be including them here.

pastel succulent wedding bouquetRecently, I’ve been looking at the succulent wedding trend with new, appreciative eyes. Some of the most beautiful centerpieces and bouquets I’ve seen have consisted of succulents. There are just so many varieties of cacti and succulents to choose from too! You can even use them for double-duty purposes by having a single cactus act as a place setting and wedding favor all in one. Plus, with a variety of pretty flowering cacti on all your tables, you also have a lot of decorating done for you. The individual cactus or succulent can be planted in a small clay pot with sand and then topped off with decorative pea gravel. Then just stick a place card in amongst the stems or glue it onto a stick and plant it in the sand with the cactus for a unique look. Since these pots will require very little watering, these combination place card holder/wedding favors can be made well ahead of time and stored until the big day. Get the Bridesmaids together and go to town having a girls’ night while you whip these up.

I also love the versatility of using cacti and succulents for a wedding. The colors of the various plants can either be soft and romantic, or more vibrant. Some of the succulents, like the Stonecrops, Dudleya, Echeveria, and Aeonium have an almost dusty, pastel look to them which would be great for a spring or summer wedding using neutral shades of taupe, beige or tan with white, peach, sage green, blush pink, smoky plum, and lavender, like the wedding suite I’ve designed, or you can use brighter flowering cacti with bold yellow, pink, or orange flowers as found on Rebutia plants for a late summer or fall wedding. Begonias and Orchids are also succulents, so adding them to your tables by themselves or as part of a larger centerpiece would be stunning. For a really rustic look, hollow out the top of a log that will fit on each of your tables and then fill it with varieties of succulents, orchids, and some candles and really wow your guests with your ingenuity. These could also be made up well ahead of time and brought to your venue the day before the wedding. They would also be a beautiful take-home gift to someone from each table. Here is a link to a gallery of succulents for more inspiration: http://succulent-plant.com/thumbnails.html

Pastel succulents wedding bouquetMany wedding colors would work well with succulents and cacti. The deeper greens of an aloe plant, or the soft grayish green of some varieties of Agave would pair well with burgundy, aubergine, deep red, and deep purple tones. Coral, orange, yellow, and lots of shades of blue would also go nicely with succulents, as would a pink color palette. I’m actually hard-pressed to think of a color scheme that couldn’t be paired with some variety of succulent or cacti.

I also like the use of watercolor design elements with the succulent trend. I think it works very well, especially if you are wanting to have more subdued colors in all your wedding details.

Choosing to use succulents in your upcoming wedding would also work very well with one of the modern wedding trends of 2017: incorporating copper or rose gold metallics to your theme. Using copper edged glass lanterns or terrariums filled with succulents and candles would be an easy way to blend in some copper elements.

As you can see, I opted for a softer, more romantic looking wedding stationery suite for my succulents wedding design. It features a pale sandy peach background with a faux craft paper look and a bracket shape text area in white, with a peach color inner border. Along the top, there is a hanging garland of green, pink, and blue succulents. The bottom and back of the wedding invitation and other cards has groupings of succulents in shades of smoky plum purple, pink, coral, peach, green, lavender, and blue. I’ve used green and smoky blue font colors with modern typography layout that also features green arrows as decorative elements for added style.
