A Look Back to Our Favorite September Wedding Invitations!


October is here! We’re happy because we love fall weather here in Richmond, Virginia. Since we’ve changed the calendar, we’ve been reminiscing through our favorite wedding invitations of September. So many of our customers (and retail partners) have such an eye for style. Here, we’ve highlighted a few of our favorite wedding invitations and why we love them!

CLASSIC FALL COLORS. This year, our September wedding invitations favored some classic fall wedding colors! Gold continues to be a popular accent! Gold is a lovely addition as an envelope liner, or as a gold foil motif! Above, our top pick from September, is a Black Foil and Gold Foil Wedding Invitation created with our friends at RSVP Omaha. We adore that they swapped the blind impression monogram into gold foil, and added a sleek black edge paint to their wedding invitation. Changing the couples names to a script font gives the wedding invitation a balance between modern chic and graceful traditional.Silver, navy, and black inks were also big colors for our fall letterpress wedding invitations.

WHIMSICAL DETAILS. Choosing a wedding invitation can be daunting because there are so many options! The one piece of advice that we like to give is be true to yourself which means picking details that speak to you.

  • Deckled edge stock is a romantic choice for your wedding invitation because of it’s artful, old world feel. Check out the deckled edge beauty above created with our friends at Just Paper and Tea.
  • Fun patterns, like the geometric pattern in the above right wedding invitation add a unique touch! This couple changed their names to a refined script font as a counter to the modern pattern and surrounding type treatment.
  • Gold foil details! Gold foil is always elegant in wedding invitations – just like in the above photos – the right bottom wedding invitation just exudes elegance. (Created with our retail partner Rugg Road Paper)

CUSTOM MOTIFS. If you don’t exactly see the perfect artwork you imagined for your wedding invitation in our albums – tell us about it! With our team of designers and artists, we can create something custom for you that you will love.

  • Nautical flags, a vintage sailboat, and a nautical knot are the perfect on the invitation for a waterside wedding! We love the delicate feel of the this nautical wedding invitation created with M. Smith & Company.
  • A Pretty Wreath Monogram is all the rage in wedding invitation design this year! Elizabeth and Andrew were such a great couple to work with, and we were so happy to design a wedding monogram that they loved! We repeated the monogram on all of their day-of wedding accessories, like their favor tags, thank you notes, and weekend itinerary! More photos to come from this wedding! Stay tuned!

We wish all of the September newlyweds the best in their exciting adventure called marriage. May your love be as beautiful and unique as your wedding invitations!

Wedding Program: Order of Ceremony


All of your wedding plans and preparations culminate when you say “I do.” So, one of the most important items on your “to do” list is planning the order of ceremony itself!

You’ll want to make your ceremony a unique and meaningful joining of two lives. There are cultural traditions to observe, your faith and family heritage to honor, legal requirements to satisfy and your own personal style and values to consider.

That said there is a standard order of events in a wedding ceremony that will help you be sure that you have included everything that’s important to the two of you.

  • Prelude
  • The Procession
  • Opening Remarks or Call to Worship
  • Prayer
  • Declaration of Intent
  • Declaration of Support
  • Musical Selection
  • Reading
  • Message or Sermon
  • Music
  • The Charge to the Couple
  • The Exchange of Vows
  • The Exchange of Rings
  • The Pronouncement of Marriage
  • The Kiss
  • The Closing Remarks or Blessing
  • The Recessional

Follow this format, personalize it with the things that matter to you the most, and celebrate your union in your own unique way!

12 Tips for Writing Wedding Thank You Notes


Your nearest and dearest showered you with love and celebration, and most likely a few gifts. Here are some tips for writing thank you notes equal to the generosity of your friends and family:

  1. Write your note promptly (within three months of receipt of the gift.) Expressing the emotion you felt when you received the gift will be easier if you write a thank you soon after opening it.
  2. Write from the heart, as though you were speaking to the giver in person.
  3. A thank you note should always be hand written. Show off your newlywed name or your new monogram with beautiful personal stationery.
  4. Discipline yourself to write 3-4 notes each day. (You’ll thank us for this tip later. We promise.)
  5. Share the responsibility of writing the notes with your new spouse. And, whether you or your spouse wrote the note, sign both of your names to a note as a couple.
  6. Save the updated guest list from the wedding, with the correct addresses! This will be terrific for your holiday card list later!
  7. Refer to the giver and the gift. Erica and I are looking forward to your next visit when we can make pancakes for you on our new griddle.
  8. Describe how you will use the gift. Seth and I are saving for a new home and thanks to you, we’ll be shopping for our dream house very soon.
  9. Mention what you like best about the gift. The down comforter set is incredibly comfortable and stylish!
  10. Always write “thank you,” and avoid “I want to thank you.” Thank you so much for the sterling silver platter.
  11. Begin a sentence with the word “you;” and not the word “I.” You have made our set of crystal wine goblets complete!
  12. Tell a story or paint a picture. Imagine how beautiful the asparagus looked on your silver platter at Philip’s birthday dinner last week.

4 Style Tips for 2016 Wedding Invitations

We just can’t believe that it’s September! Congratulations to the happy couples who were married in August! Looking back on a few of our favorite wedding invitations, there was so much loveand style, thanks to our amazing retail partners! A few cool trends we noticed in these wedding invitations:

  1. Think Pink! Pink is a popular and fun accent color for wedding invitations! Pair a peachy shade with ocean blue for a playful vibe, or try bright fuschia and black for a really modern take. OR go for the gold and choose gold foil wedding invitations with an accent of a custom pink edge paint! We absolutely love the endless combinations you can make with the happy color pink!
  2. A Touch of Shimmer. Shimmer backers or envelope liners add real glamor to any wedding invitation – whether they’re letterpress, foil or digitally printed!
  3. Monogram Magic. Personalize your wedding invitations with a monogram of you and your partners initials, because: a.) you’re joining your lives and a monogram is the perfect symbol of your union and, b.) monograms are just plain awesome. Go for a minimally chic block monogram OR really play up the romance with an ornate, vintage monogram!
  4.  Refined Blind Impression. Blind impressions are so beautiful on letterpress wedding invitations — especially as chic wood grain pattern for a rustic yet refined wedding.
