One of my favorite tasks as a bride was browsing through all of the gorgeous wedding invites. I've worked on quite a few invitation sets but one of my favorites was for a lovely bride that had planned a dreamy destination wedding. We actually used a photo of the lace from her dress in the letterpress invitation and response card design. You can see them below.
Designing an invitation set for me is like being a kid in a candy shop - calligraphy, letterpress, painted edges, metallic inks, envelope liners, beautiful papers and more! Ever since my letterpress class in college, I've thought of having a press of my own someday. I would probably disappear into a back room somewhere and the only sign of life would be the beautiful cards sliding out from under the door.
