For Kathy's bridal shower we took the blush and floral elements that are so popular now and gave it a crisp, edgy feel while maintaining a romantic and feminine feeling for a bridal shower invitation. We also wanted to tie in details that were already in place for the shower decor. The finished creation was bold, fun, and elegant!
One popular trend we're loving is the use of the Wedding Venue as part of the vision and design for the Wedding Stationery. Not only does it celebrate the beauty of the wedding location but it also peaks guests' interest and excitement about the event by giving them a look at the place where the upcoming celebration will take place. We're looking at way various ways we've used artist sketches of the venues in our designs.
Brandy and Matthew's Invitation brought together elements of organic papers, flirty fonts, and playful colors to set the tone for their big day.
Caiti and Tony's Invitation was built around the beautiful, historic Burrough's Home in Fort Myers. We were able to incorporate the image into the design using a hand-sketch piece of artwork created for the bride and groom by one of our artists. The soft, cottony cardstock combined with a champagnium response envelope and a graphite invitation envelope created a contrast that gave the event an exciting feel for their guests.
We couldn't help but feeling like ecstatic cheerleaders before for kick off while waiting for the football escort cards to arrive back to our studio. Weeks of design and collaborative planning finally came together for this adorable wedding escort card display project.

Designing the stationery for Amy and Brandon's La Playa wedding was the perfect example of combining strength and softness. The use of pearlized papers and soft charcoal printing when combined with the subtle, floral accents gave the pieces both a rich, formal feel and and a subtle, southern elegance.
Our collaboration with one of our amazing artists has opened up new doors in creating custom invitations for our clients. Not only doors but also windows, front porches, gorgeous trees, historic landmarks, and famous old homes. We then take these pieces of art and incorporate them into the design of our invitations and stationery. Jessica and Daniel's Papertale is one stunning example of how custom artwork can add a unique, personalized touch to the invitation suite.
When I first sat down with Debra to discuss save the dates and invitations I had no idea that three completely different, wondrous things were happening at the same time. I was meeting an amazing stationery designer who would create my dream wedding from beginning to forever. I was finding a new passion in my life and career in the incredibly rewarding world of paper design. Last, and most importantly, I made a friendship that would change my life. My consultation at DM Paper Designs created the wedding, the job opportunity, and the friendship of a lifetime. Today's blog will share how DM shaped both my wedding and my future.
"Less is more" is a popular saying or mantra in many aspects of design. Sometimes clean simplicity can make the boldest statement. This was the case in working on the invitation for Merissa and Matthew. Letterpress printing is a traditional method of printing using a printing press. During this process each invitation is produced with direct impression of an inked, raised surface against cardstock or paper. The look and feel of the technique gives the invitations depth and dimension.
