Today’s paper poste comes with some classic-looking invitations in fun colors from Stoney Creek, Ontario-based Rock Paper Gifts.  They specialize in unique, custom-made invitations and I, for one, am in love with the crisp folds and great layering!

Immersed in mint, pink, and a smattering of gold.  That’s been my head lately.  So, today I bring you some pretty stationery in that palette!

Rice.  Birdseed.  Confetti.  All have been known to be the visual celebration of a couple’s vows.  The congratulations flow after the “I do’s”, and the toss commences.  Rice has been called a detriment to birds’ health, birdseed is kind of a pain to be covered in, but confetti is fun and can be colored any way you want it!

Oooh!  I’m just so in love with the little bags of confetti for your guests to dust you in!  What do you think?  A little or a lot, you have to admit the tiny bits inspire smiles and add to the celebration of a new marriage!

I’m so in love with my next event that I had to find paper suites to go with the aesthetic!  (I love when new opportunities present themselves!).  I keep thinking maybe someday I will be so sick of chevron, but, truth is, I’m not so sure!  I am a pattern lover; no way around that!

Without further chit-chat, I’ll let the pretty speak for itself!

Over a month ago, I hosted a fantastic party in honor of the incredible women I have become friends with since moving a year ago.  If you follow me on Instagram, you would have gotten a peek into the gorgeousness while I was creating it.  I’ve finally been able to curate and edit the images, and I can’t wait for you to see them!  Enjoy the pretty!

As much as I truly enjoy vibrant colors in invitation suites, there is just something about the classic black and white. Monochromatic doesn’t have to be boring!  Just look at these gorgeous patterns and fonts.  Anything goes!  Stick with bold type or mix it up with stunning hand lettering.  Ah! I’m in love with it all!

Who could resist a little gold confetti and bakers twine?!  I’m smitten.  What do you think? Are you committed to color or could you do monochromatic?

It’s all about the packaging….or so I like to think.  Everything is better when it’s wrapped up so pretty.  From gorgeous boxes to encase it all to beautifully-lined envelopes and fantastic hand-lettering or calligraphy, invitation suite packaging can be stunning and totally worth the little bit of extra work necessary for assembly!

These invitations were put together by Rhiannon of Hey Gorgeous Events and created by Smitten on Paper.

Thinking about a themed wedding?  Throw this on for inspiration…

Beautiful carnival-style party!  Also, draw theme inspiration from the location the wedding takes place at like this sea-inspired one at a yacht club.

In addition to themed weddings, neon is making a comeback, and these suites will prove to you that it’s not as ghastly as the eighties.  Make it pop by pairing it with a deep color such as navy.  Love the striped liner for the envelope, too!

Keep the brights going and add in some geometric shapes for a fun look (confetti is a must!).

How important to you is it to have an invitation suite?  Would you go all out?

Okay, so you all know how obsessed I am about unique touches in every aspect of life, but how fun would it be to have a customized address stamp for your wedding invitations or the thank you notes you’ll send later?

I was perusing Lover.ly (you can check out my “Aqua” board here), and I set out to find cool stamps for your paper materials!  Then, clearly the next move was to Etsy–the home of all things amazing and creatively awesome.

I love the combination of hand-writing/calligraphy with type as well as how many directions you can run in with it!  I would definitely love one of these, and it would just give your mail so much more pizazz.

What do you think?  Would you invest in a personalized address stamp just for fun and to have as a memento?
