New Set Design: Indian Lotus Wedding Reception Stationery

Posted by in Our Designs

Imbue You Indian Lotus Reception Stationery

After two weeks that included a devastating hurricane one week and a strong snow storm the next, we are finally getting back to a normal pace here in New Jersey. Eight days without power really helps you appreciate the little joys in life. A few nights reading by oil lamps with Justin is not so bad after all.

And now that the power’s back on, it’s back to normal and back to designing. I wanted to show you one of our newest ceremony and reception wedding stationery sets: our Indian Lotus Set.

Inspired by Indian architecture and saris, this full ceremony and reception stationery suite has the pulled together, cohesive look of professional styling, with the creative touches and uniqueness of homespun details. This intricate floral print has enough detail to handle 2 to 3 colors. So it’s really easy to make it match your style and your wedding.

See more details on how to make it your own here. Or see more of our full stationery sets here.

Here’s an in-depth look at the ceremony and reception set.

Even with it’s more unusual square shape, the design has enough room for full ceremony details, wedding party and a thank you message. We can also do this as a more traditional 8.5 x 5.5 booklet, if you need even more room.

Our Process to Create Wedding Stationery You’ll Love

Posted by in Ask Imbue You, Our Designs

Imbue You Handmade Process

Ever wondered how we work with customers to create handmade invitations and wedding stationery that matches their style?

Well, wonder no more. I’m taking you behind the scenes of our design process.

 

Our process starts with you

Whether we are working with you on wedding invitations, save the dates or ceremony and reception stationery, such as wedding programs, escort cards, table numbers or menus, the process starts the same.

We talk. Usually by email, or in the notes section on our website, you let us know your wedding colors and possibly the mood you envision for your wedding day. Is it formal, romantic, warm and intimate or vintage and quirky?

Letting us know these things can help us give better advice on paper stock, color placement and font choice.

You don’t have to know which colors go where on your designs. We figure  that out for you. And you can always ask us for advice! That’s what we are here for.

 

We turn your ideas into proofs

Once we have a good idea of what you want, we start designing.

If you are still unsure about your colors or font choices, we can present some options to help you choose.

All our proofs sent via email as PDFs. We recommend that you view them at 100%, so you see the actual scale of the text and designs.

And though you may love your iPhone or iPad, we’ve found that these don’t show the colors accurately. So you may want to double check everything on another computer.

The great thing about our proofing system is that you get 3 rounds of proofing. So you are allowed to change your mind! The important thing to remember is that you are not alone. So if you don’t quite know how to get the look you wanted, just ask and we’ll probably have a few suggestions.

That’s why it’s so important to know the mood you want for your wedding day. We have found that the best way to get wedding invitations and stationery you’ll love is to design with your wedding day in mind.

And if you like, we can send you photos of your designs assembled before we make them to make sure you can visualize how all the colors will work together.

 

We make your wedding stationery by hand

Since we spend so much time together during the proofing process, we come to think of your wedding as our wedding, and want to make sure that you love your stationery.

Caring does take time in the production process, so we ask for your patience as we print and hand assemble your designs. Invitations and stationery suites make take us 2 to 3 weeks to ship once you’ve approved your designs. And individual ceremony and reception stationery, such as wedding programs and place cards may take 1 to 2 weeks to ship.

But if you are in a rush, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your timing.

Printing is just the first step in this process. After that we cut your designs to size. In the case of our wedding program fans, cutting is a careful process to get the edging just right.

Next up is assembly by hand. Many of our designs have folds or are mounted on coordinating cardstock through gluing using one of the strongest adhesives available. With our booklet and flap fold invitations we also insert your coordinating cards.

The process is done when we add any finishing touches such as hand tied tags and ribbon.

 

We ship them to you as quickly as possible

And that’s it.

Your stationery is carefully packed and shipped out to you to share with your family and friends. Our standard shipping is 2 to 3 day Priority Mail, which more often than not arrives in 2 days.

We do get used to the beautiful colors and combinations in our workshop of individual designs. But we know there will be new beautiful orders to work on, and possibly a chance to revisit those colors on matching stationery later on.

Cleaning House

Posted by in Our Designs, The Creative Business

Sometimes to make everything make sense, you have to move it all around.

In the early days of our design studio, Justin came to me and said he wanted to move our bedroom into the other bedroom where our office was because it was quieter. Made sense,  but it didn’t quite address the best use of space in our home. So the next weekend, we moved our bedroom into the old office, the office into the livingroom and the livingroom into our old bedroom…much better.

Our purple sofa (I loved color even back then) didn’t quite fit through the doorway and so became a casualty to the new scheme. Insert a sleeker blue couch, and we were done!

I share this story because we just updated our Imbue You Wedding and Imbue You websites. Things are moved around quite a bit, but the hope is that it will make more sense to you and be a better reflection of what we do.

Real Palettes: Romantic Pink, Gray and Coral Mexican Folk Wedding Invitation

Posted by in Color Advice, Our Designs, Real Palettes

Imbue You Mexican Folk Invitation set pink

It’s amazing the power that color has to change the mood of a design.

We’d done this folk design in bold fuchsia, teal and gold for a couple getting married in Mexico, which was a lot of fun. But recently a subtler, softer color palette was requested.  This look is more romantic…same design, different colors, different feeling.

I was thinking back on this design and the difference color makes because I received an email from a bride looking to have a traditional formal hacienda Mexican inspired wedding. She needed help choosing a design that would work with her theme and mood.

Thinking over all the weddings we’ve done using our Mexican designs, I realized they ranged from fun and casual to traditional. And the main thing that helped convey the feeling the couple wanted was color, not just in the inks.

But also in the paper. We’ve recently used ivory and a metallic champagne paper to help create the mood the couple wanted for their wedding stationery. So yes, there can be a bold romantic palette, you just may want to soften it with different colored papers.

Real Palettes: Fuchsia, Mint and Ivory Bali Wedding

Posted by in Color Advice, Our Designs, Real Palettes

Ganesh Lotus Wedding Program by Imbue You in fuchsia, mint green and ivory

When Emily came to us to create the wedding program for her fall destination wedding in Bali, she had a problem that lots of couples experience: How to bridge her invitation colors with her reception colors.

It’s good to have some consistency between your invitations and ceremony and reception stationery because it ties the whole wedding together, and makes it seem like, well, one wedding.

In Emily’s case her invitations were dark red with green, and her reception colors were mostly dark pink. So what to do?

I suggested she simply take one color from the invitation and pair it with her reception color. Because she was getting married in Bali, green would be the best choice as it would also capture the island flair of her wedding location. Red and fuchsia would also work, especially for super modern, or romantic wedding themes.

She loved the look of ivory paper so we incorporated that. Ivory also helped to tone down the brightness of the pink and green and blended them very nicely. In general ivory paper will give your colors a more muted, romantic look which is why it’s a popular choice for vintage weddings.

The combo would have also worked well on white paper, if you love color (which I do!).

We loved this lotus design so much with the Ganesh icon that we added it to our Etsy wedding stationery shop. What do you think?
