Fabric Details: The Guestbook

Our love for fabrics doesn’t just stop at wedding invitations. There are so many beautiful and creative ways to incorporate your invitation fabric into your wedding details. We’ve shared with you ideas for using the fabric for bridesmaids clutches and bowties, but what about something that everyone can enjoy: the guestbook!

If you’re a traditional bride, you’ll love these guestbooks from scatoli.

Jeannie and Fayaz Chamadia at Bloom Box Designs put together the most gorgeous event for Munchkin, helping them showcase some of their new product line, and I was so excited to help with these fun menus that doubled as place mats…

Ladybug Baby Announcements

Every now and then, I get to work on something special for teeny tiny people, and it’s extra special when it’s for a former wedding client’s growing family!

Jessi knew that she wanted to use a fabric with ladybugs on it for her baby girl’s announcements, so I scoured my fabric sources and we came upon this fun, vibrant, modern print.

We brought the fun colors and polka dots into the card and outer band design…

Modern Chinese Wedding Invitation with Pomegranates and Double Happiness

I am so excited to share this sneak peek of our newest wedding invitation suite!

Modern Chinese wedding invitations featuring hand drawn pomegranates and elegant calligraphy. Comes in deep red or pewter silk.

This design has been dancing around in my mind for some time now… I have totally fallen in love with the gorgeous, naturally elegant, rustic beauty that has taken the wedding world by storm, but I couldn’t help thinking that all my fellow Chinese brides out there were being asked to make a difficult decision—choose to go with tradition or choose to have a rustically elegant wedding. Let me explain…

Your traditional Chinese wedding revolves around lots of bright red and bright gold and requires the use of a Double Happiness symbol, a dragon, a phoenix, and/or some peonies, bamboo, or lanterns. Of course, I’m being a little cheeky about this, but I find that those of us who love our Chinese culture find it hard to get married without at least a few of these elements present, but you can see how these motifs would be rather hard to blend with a more rustic, natural, modern aesthetic.

I’m hoping my new Pomegranate Suite does a little something to bridge that gap by bringing in some traditional Chinese elements—pomegranates are very symbolic for Chinese weddings, representing a happy marriage with many children (seeds!)—into an otherwise very natural, organic design that also features a modern calligraphy monogram.

These will be available with either a deep red or pewter gray silk fabric. I can’t wait to finalize our options and make them available in our Etsy store!
