Introducing the Chloe wedding invitation suite! This one features a classy, preppy pattern in black and white with a touch of gold foil and a calligraphy-inspired font. I love how it’s modern but with a hint of traditional and vintage-inspired elements. My favorite part, I think, is that thin cotton ribbon and tiny bow to tie it all together.

You can check out some Chloe wedding inspiration right here on Pinterest.

marbling & copper foil

When a recent client told me she envisioned marbling and foil for her save the dates, it was all I could do to not hug her around the neck in excitement. Yes to marbled paper, and yes to copper foil. And yes to her color palette, snagged from a gorgeous living room featured in Veranda.

I love how Audrey from Urbanic captured my Josephine design for Bella Figura! I’m already thinking about my 2016 collection for Hello Tenfold and I believe that more color is in order.

In addition to photographing the ten new suites, we also photographed a few favorite designs. Gazette is one of them! Designed with destination weddings in mind, this invitation suite features a vintage map which changes depending on the couple’s wedding location, some bold typography, a compass pattern, and a simple, modern feel. You can see more photos of this suite in the shop.

Thanks to Wedding Lovely for featuring this invitation today!

gold wedding invitations on a budget

gold wedding invitations

Gold wedding invitations are so in right now, and for good reason — the combination of cotton paper and gold foil is gorgeous. It doesn’t have to break the budget, either. Here are tips for using gold in your wedding invitations and keeping it affordable:

• Opt for gold only on the invitation
This is a popular solution for couples who want gold but need to keep stationery costs down. Your save the date, reply card, details card, and envelopes could be printed in either letterpress or flat printing, in a complementing color — try lavender, blush pink, emerald green, or French blue. Gold paired with neutrals is also beautiful — a pale grey or taupe, for example! Florentine is a design with gold foil on the invitation, but black letterpress and flat printing for the other cards.

• Stick with just the gold
Choose a design that will look beautiful in only gold, like the options above. A design that has only gold foil will be less expensive than a gold-plus-peach design, or a flat printed (multi-color) design with gold foil. Contrary to popular belief, it will not reduce the invitation cost to have “just a little” gold, like names only. But it does reduce the cost to choose only gold.

• Have fewer cards in the envelope
It’s less traditional, but putting reply information, with a link to your website or email address, directly on the invitation itself reduces the need for a reply card and saves money.

• Choose matte gold over foil
Foil is beautiful. But you can get a gold look without choosing foil, like this design. A matte gold color can be achieved with letterpress or flat printing, which makes it cheaper than metallic gold foil.

• Use gold somewhere other than the invitation
Opt for gold foil printed on the invitation band or envelope liner, rather than the invitation, and get the metallic pop for less. Even more budget-friendly, pick a gold paper, like Stardream (they also make gold envelopes) or a handmade paper with gold, and cut the sheets down for DIY envelope liners or DIY invitation bands.
