Burlap Wedding Stationery

We just can’t get enough of the simple, rustic elegance of our Burlap & Silk invitations, and we’ve added a few new items in our Etsy store that will carry this look throughout your wedding day!

These simple escort cards can be displayed in so many different ways…from being tied to twigs of rosemary…

One of my favorite elements of our Burlap & Silk invitation is the pearlescent wax seal, so we decided to design a wedding program where guests open the wax seal to see the program contents inside.

Table numbers are available either by themselves for framing or backed with burlap.

The burlap backing is such a beautiful touch on menus, as well!

Truly, no detail was overlooked. From the little things like monogram straw flags and signature drink signage…

I love that the custom crest made its debut at their wedding ceremony with the program and petal toss stickers and will reappear at their guests’ homes on the newlyweds’ custom folded thank you notes!

Burlap Wedding Invitations : Rustic Elegance in Sun Valley

I am so excited to finally share something we’ve been working on for months! Andrea and her mom, JoAnne, have impeccable taste and have been such a joy to work with as they poured so much thought, heart, and creativity into Andrea’s beautiful wedding.

Andrea was getting married in Sun Valley, Idaho, so they really wanted to bring in the rustic elements of this beautiful ski town while balancing the formal elegance they envisioned for the ceremony and reception.

Our burlap wedding invitation was the perfect place to start, with its beautifully textured burlap, raw silk band, and wax seal featuring a hand-drawn custom monogram.

When their guests opened these folders, they were greeted with luxurious letterpressed cards with all the wedding details.

Each burlap folder was carefully placed into inner envelopes that were hand-lined with shimmery pearl paper to match the monogram wax seal and then closed with a second wax seal with a custom drawing of Baldy Mountain, the main ski mountain in Sun Valley.

All this was mailed in extra thick outer envelopes with a lovely die-cut scalloped flap.

With invitations like this, we knew there would be so much more in store when it came time to design the day-of stationery, and we’ll share all the details about their programs, menus, and more in our next post!

Fabric Invitation Design Options

So you’ve scrolled through our custom gallery, found an invitation that’s almost perfect—keyword: almost—and you’re wondering, “what changes can I make to make this just right?” Well, the quick answer is we can change pretty much anything you want! We can change the fabric, the ribbons, the embellishments, the paper color, the style of printing…the only things that stay constant are our fabric invitation styles.

Our fabric invitations are available as square and rectangular folders, square and rectangular pockets, and now, as rectangular panels, as well. What do these styles look like, you ask? Well, we thought it’d be fun to show you how one invitation dresses up a little differently using various invitation styles and embellishments!

Here is our Burlap and Silk invitation. (You can see additional photos here.)

This invitation is an example of our square fabric folder. The folder opens and closes with the invitation mounted on the inside right and the pocket for your inserts on the inside left. The square folder is a 6″ X 6″, and our rectangular folders (like this one) are 5″ X 7.5″.

Our other style of fabric enclosure is our fabric pocket. Our pockets are also available in both square and rectangular shapes. Here, the burlap is made into a rectangular pocket with the invitation mounted on one side and the pocket for your inserts on the back.

Another option with our pockets is to insert the main invitation card into the pocket, which allows us even more options for embellishing the invitation.

Finally, we are now offering a fabric panel version of our invitations! You can see a couple examples below. It looks very similar to our pockets, but there is no pocket in back. And yes, we can even back your response card with fabric, too!

I hope this helps you visualize the various options you have for your fabric invitations. And yes, we can make any of the invitations you see in our custom gallery—and new ones we design just for you!—in any of these styles.
