Lovely LinersLovely Liners 2

One way to add a personal, modern touch to an elegant formal invitation is through a unique envelope liner. This bride used a photograph of her iconic wedding venue, the Chicago Cultural Center. The results were nothing short of stunning! This inspiration was taken one step further by repeating the dome’s motifs on the inserts, giving this glamorous suite a trendy twist.

Mix It Up

There’s no better way to add a hint of visual interest than through a tasteful combination of fonts! The handwritten script in this suite adds elegance, the block font reflects tradition, while the use of Ecuyer in the monogram and parents’ names adds a unique and modern twist.

We immediately fell in love with the delicate lace details of this suite, especially when combined with a refined pop of gold foil on the invitation and Save the Date. This suite is elegance at its finest!

Hopeless Romantic

Is there anything more romantic than beautiful blush paper infused with just a hint of vintage charm? We love the old-fashioned typewriter-style font, along with this fabulous script that just shouts 1950’s glam!
