Lavender and Aqua Starfish Beach Wedding Invitation: Real Wedding Palette

Posted by in Our Designs, Real Palettes

starfish wedding invitation lavender and aqua

We wanted to share with you this lovely palette for a beach wedding: lavender, aqua and white.

Instead of using 2 types of fonts, the couple used 1, with color and size helping to kept the design fun and interesting. In addition to being a lovely invitation in the couple’s colors, they used the invitation to help them better plan their wedding.

There was room on the RSVP for planning information, like arrival and departure dates

The couple’s planner suggested that they ask guests when they were arriving, their reservation number and room information on the RSVP. This will all help them plan better for their out-of-town guests.

The included enclosure booklet contained a detailed list of events and accommodations and travel information for guests.

Even if you have a wedding website for travel information, there may be some people on your guest list who will be more comfortable with an insert card for that information.

The matching address label on the envelope has the couple’s return address pre-printed.

It’s also possible to have your guest names printed on the invitation address label in the same colors and fonts as the invitation. This can save time and pull your entire invitation look together.

Fuchsia Pink and Black Las Vegas Wedding: Real Palettes

Posted by in Color Advice, Create the Look, Our Designs, Real Palettes

hot pink fuchsia and black las vegas wedding

These photos were sent to us by Mo. We created her Las Vegas wedding invitations a few months ago.

She was looking for inspiration to add a pop of color to her wedding reception tables. Then she saw the wedding invitations we made for her, and had an idea…to use the tag and ribbon as a napkin band.

We loved how it turned out. Mo’s wedding decor is filled with many handmade touches that came together very well.

Happy Inspiration!

Our Las Vegas invitations and reception wedding stationery are available online in your custom colors from our Etsy shop or handmade stationery shop.

Real Wedding: Carla and Sean’s Indian Inspired Wedding

Carla and Sean’s wedding at Spice Market, a South Asian inspired restaurant in the meatpacking district of NYC, is a perfect example of how to match your wedding stationery to your venue.

When Carla and Sean contacted us for escort cards and table numbers for their wedding, they had already ordered our Indian inspired favor labels online and were looking to match the design.

The designs they choose blended in with Spice Market’s Indian and Malaysian feel. And the special touches they added really made the wedding their own:

I love how they integrated spices into the presentation of the escort cards. It really ties back to the wedding venue.

It’s nice to have a quiet place for just the two of you to enjoy your first moments as a married couple. This sweetheart table is decorated simply with delicious food, menus and our handmade table number.

Carla and Sean gave their guests chai as wedding favors. The look really came together with our favor labels and these great jars that they found.

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?

Real Palettes: Teal, Fuchsia and Gold Indian Wedding

Posted by in Color Advice, Create the Look, Our Designs, Real Palettes

Indian lotus wedding program in teal, fuchsia and gold

Sometimes it takes experimentation to land on the color palette you like.

We were working on a wedding program for an Indian wedding that originally had royal blue and gold as the main colors. A two color palette works well on invitation design. But often once the reception design begins, more colors are pulled in with flowers, table linens, chair coverings and even tableware.

So the bride came back and added teal and fuchsia to the mix and it really brought the entire design alive.

I love the results, what about you? What colors would you add to your palette to fill it out?
