...Kraft Table Numbers...

Wanting to break away from the traditional white paper table numbers with black ink stating "Table Number 1"?! These lovelies will sure do the trick.
The kraft paper table numbers blended in with the ambiance of the event and provided a lovely break from the standard table number.
Better yet, the bride found the kraft paper numbers at a craft store on the cheap!

...Maps by Bonfires...

Do you love to travel? Are you planning a destination wedding? If you answered yes to either question then this invitation might just be the inspiration you need to figure out how your invitations will reflect you and your wedding.
I am such a fan of pretty fonts {who isn't?!}. This invitation suite boasts whimsy cursive fonts and straight-edge capitalized fonts. The more the merrier. And calligraphy on the outer envelope never hurt anyone!
The envelope liners resembled map paper and the envelopes themselves were sealed with a sticker fashioned from the same map paper. It just doesn't get any better.
Oh wait, it does. Vintage stamps.

Lately, I'm loving the color blue. With that being said, I'm not sure if the vibrant cool blue attracted me to this invitation suite, or if it was the unusual presence of pigeons on a wedding invitation.

I am hoping deep down in my little heart that this was a place card created for the bride at the rehearsal dinner. It is adorable! I am also loving the presence the two pigeons atop return address on the invitation envelope.
I'll leave you with one last image. The table numbers were too precious not to post.

...Social Circles Design...

Etsy is a great resource for all brides planning their special day. Some of my favorite Etsy finds include these custom hair pieces, chic bridesmaid gifts and precious cake toppers. What you might not know is that Etsy is a treasure chest for customized invitations and save the dates!

I saw this adorable yellow, black and gray invitation and loved how the complex damask design on the outside of the invitation packet complimented the sheer simplicity of the invitation suite itself. And the ribbon tied in a bow around the packet was just the icing on the cake. All of this for about $5 an invitation. Not too shabby!


So it's a bit pricey, but how can you not want to splurge on this lovely invitation suite from ceci new york?!
Vibrant colors and delicious patterns flowing throughout make this invitation suite one of my all time favorites. Spring 2010 brides, break from the traditional spring pastels and spice it up a little bit with colors like these! You can thank me later.
