Happy Friday, everyone! Here’s a quick little fabric wedding invitation inspiration.
I just love this fabric for all of its carefree happiness. The beautiful minty color, the squiggly stripes…it’s pretty and elegant and modern and happy all rolled into one! And it would pair so well with so many colors: peachy pinks for a light springtime feel, lemony yellows for a sunny summertime bash, orangey reds for a bright fall wedding, or silvery grays for a lovely winter wonderland!

When designing a custom wedding invitation suite, inspiration comes from many directions. Sometimes it’s a particular fabric or ribbon we find. Sometimes it’s a flower or image that is special to the couple. Many times, inspiration comes from the location of the wedding, which was the case for this wonderful weekend long destination affair in Sun Valley, Idaho.
Mount Baldy was to be the magnificent backdrop to Britt and Greg’s wedding ceremony, so what better way to introduce this beautiful event to their guests than with a custom sketch of the mountain?
Not only did we use this custom graphic on their invitations, it also adorned their ceremony program and a truly amazing guide to Sun Valley the couple presented to their guests as part of the welcome bags at their hotels.
You can see more images of the invitation here and some highlights from the wedding here.
One of my favorite trends in weddings right now is the wonderful mixing of textures and styles in everything from invitations to cakes. There something so dramatic and beautiful about traditional, formal elements placed in nontraditional, rustic settings. So silk invitations for an elegant, rustic, outdoor wedding with distressed wood, burlap, and other natural elements? Absolutely!
