Here are two great invitations we just finished for our clients Tyler and Nick. After working with us on their wedding invitations, Tyler and Nick returned to us in search of completely unique rehearsal dinner and dessert reception invitations. Here are the couture creations we came up with - their dinner invitation is a flat panel invitation that incorporates their monogram design from their invitation (which we blogged about on December4th if you want to take a peek). Their dessert invitation is a round flat panel adorned with mocha rhinestones, to look like a chocolate chip cookie. Enjoy!

French Flair

Here is another pocketfold invitation we shipped out to our clients, Angie and Lester, earlier today. Angie and Lester asked us to create an invitation for them that was bilingual, incorporating French on the invite panel, in their gold & chocolate color scheme.

Square Save the Dates

Here are two square Save the Date designs we just shipped to our clients, Mandee & Veronica. Mandee and Sean incorporated a picture on their ivory and meadow green design. They printed their details for their guests on the back of the meadow green metallic panel in a chocolate font. Veronica and Jason used merlot and slate gray fonts to share their details with their guests. They also printed additional details for their guests on the back of the white panel. These are two great examples of how a square Save the Date can be so similar and yet so different. That's why we call them Couture Creations. Enjoy!

Colorful Clementine

People often ask us what our most popular invitation is and normally we answer the blue starfish invitation. We've created this for at least 7 prior clients. So you can imagine how excited we were to have the opportunity to work with Linda & John to recreate this popular invitation in their clementine and chocolate colors. Linda & John wanted to use bright fiesta colors on the invitation to set the tone for their destination wedding in Mexico. We think the finished product was beautiful. Enjoy!
