Recently, we featured this whimsical floral illustrated wedding invitation suite by Paperchain Wedding Stationery. Today we’re going to get to know Justine Rowe, the talented designer behind the scenes! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

It was quite by accident! As I was (and still am) a graphic designer my sister asked me to design her wedding stationery for her. I produced the stationery for her and really enjoyed doing so. I then went on to design the wedding stationery for my own wedding and received lots of great compliments on both sets. I decided at this point to set up Paperchain Wedding Stationery.

Black and Gold Art Deco Wedding Invitation Suites by Atelier Isabey (9)

Black and Gold Art Deco Wedding Invitation Suites by Atelier Isabey (9)

Today we have two exquisite Art Deco inspired wedding invitation suites to share with you! Here is Margot Hallac, designer and owner of Atelier Isabey, to tell us more:

These invitation suites are inspired by architecture and art from the 1920s and 1930s. We fused art deco prints with bold angular lines that we felt were cornerstone elements of this period in time. Being based in New York City, we have an abundance of Art Deco inspired architecture and design here so it was easy to step outside our studio and be inspired by the city around us. We really wanted the invitation to be elegant and timeless; it should feel right at home in the drawing room of Jay Gatsby in Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic book but also perfect for a fashionista looking for something glamorous and daring. To build depth and texture we printed the invitation suite in gold foil and in letterpress on black and white papers. I think the result is exciting and chic but also really sophisticated and timeless.

Today’s wedding stationer interview is with Brooke Coxen of Paper and Home, based in Las Vegas, Nevada! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

Ever since I was a little girl, I enjoyed card stores and all the pretty rows of paper. I appreciated all of the design details and the tactile nature of paper. I knew I wanted to do something with stationery, so I pursued a degree in graphic design in Southern California. I eventually worked at a graphic design studio specializing in wedding invitations when I lived in New York. I loved being part of the wedding planning process for couples and enjoyed how each project was unique to their personalities.

4 Things to do Before You Meet With Your Wedding Stationer (2)

Today’s helpful guest post comes to us from Sarah Reed, the owner and lead designer of Dodeline Design, a Charleston, SC based stationery company. Enjoy!

Wedding stationery is an exciting piece of the wedding, as it happens to be almost the only thing you get to see and have before the Big Day itself. With all that anticipation building, holding your invitations in your hands helps a little in making the whole thing seem real. That said, it can be very tempting to make an appointment with that stationer you’ve been stalking on Instagram right after the ring appears on your finger. While it’s always fun for vendors to speak with new brides, it will be a much more productive and informative conversation if you figure out a couple things first.

The ins and Outs of Destination Wedding Invitations

The ins and Outs of Destination Wedding Invitations

Today’s post comes to us from our newest guest contributor, Michelle Marks, the owner and designer of Inviting Affairs in Austin, Texas. Thanks for sharing with us!

So you decided to take the plunge and plan the destination wedding you argued back in forth about with friends and family. You picture your feet immersed in the warm sand or the wind blowing high in the mountains. No matter which location is chosen the distance and accessibility of the destination can affect the timing of your invitations and save the dates. With a destination wedding it is not inappropriate to send out the save the dates a year in advance. It is best to send them out as soon as you have confirmed the details. Typically nine-twelve months is ample time for your guests to prepare for traveling. As for the formal invitation they are usually sent out six-eight weeks before the wedding but with a destination you should be sending them two-three months in advance.
