Burgundy Wine and Charcoal Gray Wedding Invitation Suite

I had a recent custom color request to change one of my designs to use burgundy instead of navy blue with one of my gray and white damask wedding invitations. That led me to do some searches online for burgundy and grey wedding color schemes, which led to me falling in love with those colors for a wedding, especially a late summer, fall or winter wedding.

I think the deep burgundy wine color, paired with charcoal grey and white is such a clean and crisp, sophisticated look with lots of good kind of drama. I love the look of the sharkskin gray men’s suits with burgundy ties and of course, argyle socks in burgundy and gray. I’ve even seen the groomsmen in burgundy suits with the bridesmaids in dark pewter grey bridesmaids dresses with burgundy floral bouquets and that looks great, too.

burgundy silver wedding cakeI designed this new burgundy wine and charcoal grey wedding invitation suite with modern elegance and sophistication in mind. The design uses a dark grey and white damask pattern that is always in style for a wedding. The main feature is the PRINTED ON deep burgundy wine ribbon and bow that sits near the bottom of the wedding invitation, or near the top of the mini calendar save the date card. There is a romantic simulated (printed on) burgundy glitter and jewel joined hearts accent in the middle of the bow. The area below the ribbon is a dark charcoal gray with white script writing that says: “This day, I will marry my best friend, the one I live for, laugh with, dream with, love”. The wording can say whatever you want as long as it will fit in the space. The main wording area is white with the wedding details printed in gray and burgundy. I’ve also added four burgundy corner flourishes and a small scroll divider to add a bit more oomph to the design.

Some people may also call the shade of burgundy I’ve used marsala, but that is more to do with Marsala wine than with the Pantone color of the year for 2015 also called Marsala, but which is more of a coppery brown shade than what I would call burgundy.

I’ve carried the printed on ribbon around to the backs of the invitation, RSVP card and Save the Date card because I like how that looks. I’m happy to add any additional wording to the backs of any of the pieces of this wedding suite, and a photo could also be added to the back of the invitation or the mini calendar save the date card if you would like to have that.

Burgundy floral centerpiece with gray standI came across a great DIY centerpiece tutorial for a pretty elegant looking burgundy floral centerpiece. I would look for planters that were the shape and size I wanted and then if they weren’t a nice silver or pewter already, I would spray paint them to go with my theme. So simple and yet so stylish!

One of the other great things about using burgundy in your wedding is how many shades of burgundy, maroon, and marsala there are that all work together, and they all look so great with shades of silver and grey. Succulents also look gorgeous with burgundy shades too, so adding them to centerpieces and bouquets can warm things up a bit if you find the burgundy and gray wedding color theme a bit on the cool side. Personally, I think it has such a contemporary, sophisticated look that it would work for many different weddings and budgets.

Rustic Royal Blue and Yellow Sunflower Wedding Invitation Suite

Sunflower Royal Blue Burlap Wood Wedding Invitation Set
Sunflower Royal Blue Burlap Wood Wedding Invitation Set

I’m always amazed to see how many people purchase their autumn or fall wedding invitation stationery early in the New year. This year I have noticed a lot of people purchasing invitations with a royal blue and yellow color scheme so that inspired me to design a new rustic burlap and wood wedding design that features a royal or cobalt blue ribbon image with a bright yellow sunflower.

blue yellow sunflower burlap wedding decorI decided to try to design something that uses a brighter shade of royal blue paired with a pretty yellow sunflower. Rustic weddings are still going strong and I think as long as there are barn wedding venues and simple outdoor settings that someone will always veer towards the warm and carefree feeling that sunflowers exude. I think the cobalt blue or royal blue and yellow sunflowers wedding theme is so perfect for a late summer or early fall wedding. There is just something about those dog days of summer that makes me think of sunflowers and hay and all things country. So, for anyone not quite sure if they want to go full-on autumn wedding with all the fall leaves and darker colors, this color scheme may be more to your liking. Even if you end up getting married on an overcast day, the bright yellow and blue will keep things lively and sunny looking.

blue yellow sunflower burlap wedding bouquetThe other things I like about a rustic burlap and sunflower wedding is the affordability of it. There are so many ways to save money on this sort of theme and you don’t need to be very handy to pull it off and still have things look like it was all professionally designed. With a little pre-planning, you could easily take care of most of the flowers and centerpieces yourself by planting your own sunflowers or asking someone you know if they would plant some for you to use. That would certainly cut down on a large part of the flower and bouquet budget. With this rustic sunflower wedding theme, I think the more casual and easy-going things look, the better. So throw some sunflowers and baby’s breath in a mason jar, wrap a royal blue ribbon around the neck, tie a small wood heart to it that has “Fall in Love” written on it, and there you have some awesome and affordable centerpieces that match your wedding theme. Same with the bouquets and boutonnieres: some sunflowers, a few accent flowers in blue, white, or cream, a bit of royal blue ribbon, twine, or burlap ribbon, and you’ll all look amazing.

blue yellow sunflower wood wedding cakeI also think that burlap goes perfectly well with sunflowers and the whole rustic look. It is also very affordable to purchase for use on your decor, favors, and anywhere you need a little rustic charm, like over your cake table, over an old barrel that holds your favors, or as a table runner on your reception tables. I wanted to use the simulated burlap pattern with a warm wood pattern that brought out the brown tones in the center of the large yellow sunflower image I used. I think the bright royal blue ribbon contrasts nicely against the browns and yellow. The look was completed using a painted golden yellow wood-look heart with the words “Fall in Love” printed on in brown in a modern calligraphy type font. Even with a rustic design, I always feel compelled to bring in a bit of elegance to the wedding design, so for this one, I used an ornate brown scrolled frame on the back side to surround the wedding invitation wording. The wording is a mix of brown and bright blue and there is another sunflower image at the top and a decorative ornament that breaks up the main wording from the reception information.

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.

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.
