Deep Purple Fabric Wedding Inspiration

Living in Southern California makes me totally incapable of dealing with the dark, dreary skies and steady rain of the past two days. (Case in point, my husband and I had a 10-minute strategy session about who gets the ONE umbrella, taking into account distance we would travel and which kid would hate being wet more.)

One fun upside? Getting lost in rich, dark color palettes like this beautiful deep purple that has been popping up here and there in the wedding world, and I’m loving how it pairs up with a deep purple silk!

Ombre Hand-Stamped Natural Linen Wedding Invitation

Here they are: pictures of the eco-industrial-chic invitation we designed for The Look of Love! It was such an amazing event, working with Lindsay from LVL Weddings & Events, Aly from The Vine’s Leaf, and Emily and Kristin from Bliss by Blue Sky’s Photography, not to mention meeting so many lovely couples. I absolutely CANNOT wait for the photos from Bliss so you can see Lindsay’s amazing tablescape and Aly’s show-stopping hanging floral centerpiece (yes, I said hanging centerpiece)!

For the stationery suite, I really wanted to play with chalkboard signage because I love how it has that industrial vibe yet is still warm and inviting. The chalkboard effect was center stage on Rachel & Noah’s save the dates, but I also wanted to provide a little hint to the invitation to come by backing these with the same natural linen fabric we used on the invites.

This was such a fun project to work on because it was a perfect opportunity to try something I’ve always wanted to do: custom hand-stamped fabric folders! The couple’s custom monogram was inked in purple and metallic gold to create an ombre effect for the front of our handmade linen folder.

For a slight twist on the ribbon accent, I sewed a thin satin ribbon down the spine of the fabric folder, giving the invitation the feel of a vintage book. I decided to keep the printed pieces simple and in black and white, a more formal look but still in the same vein as our chalkboard theme.

The event stationery was a great opportunity to bring the chalkboard look back! Not only did we have chalkboard style menus, we had individual chalkboard style place cards and drink & cheeseboard signage that were mounted on hand-torn linen so it had these wonderful frayed edges.

Like I said…cannot wait for the event photos so you can see how the inspiration space all came together!
