Ocean Inspired Wedding Invitations

We had the pleasure of working with Natalie and Ryan on their save the dates and wedding invitations last year. They were married at the Pasea Hotel & Spa in Huntington Beach, so they drew inspiration for their stationery suite from the ocean, beach and the local surf culture.

Wanting their wedding invitations to be in line with the style of their venue, we kept things simple in pale blue and sand letterpress. The fonts, a slightly retro text layout, and a subtle wave motif added just the right amount of a SoCal beach vibe.

To start designing your wedding invitations, schedule an appointment with one of our Design Consultants using our online calendar or by giving us a call! We look forward to meeting with you!

Modern Organic Wedding Invitations

Last July Sweet Paper teamed up with Kayla Teague from Simply Gorgeous Events for a styled photo shoot at Mission Brewery. Kayla provided an inspiration board, filled with lush organic greenery and moody shades of black and gold. Taking inspiration from Kayla’s vision, our shop owner Theresa designed a modern organic wedding invitation suite. The invitation was simple, with bold typography, while the envelope liner and reply card included watercolor greenery to bring in a softer, organic element. Black envelopes with white hand calligraphy added just the right amount of drama! Coordinating menus, place cards and a bar sign carried the design throughout the reception set up. We think Kayla’s vision came to life beautifully!

Newly Engaged?!

Newly engaged?! It’s time to order save the dates!

Save the dates are typically sent 6 – 8 months prior to the wedding, and even further in advance if the wedding is a destination for many guests. Sending save the dates with plenty of time before the wedding, ensures that your guests will have adequate time to book their accommodations and travel arrangements.

Save the dates can incorporate engagement photos, be casual and fun, full of detailed event information or simple and classic. No matter your style or wedding needs, we can design a save the date unique to you and your vision!

Schedule an appointment using our online calendar or by giving us a call! We look forward to meeting with you!

Real Weddings: Hayley and Jay’s Big Day

We had the joy of working with Hayley on all of her wedding stationery, including save the dates, wedding invitations, day-of stationery and thank you notes. It was so much fun to help bring her vision to life!

Hayley started with a lovely design from Bella Figura and we worked with her to customize every detail. Her wedding invitation glows with the combination of blush and champagne foil text. The watercolor design filling the invitation fits perfectly for their wedding, and with the foil calligraphy text, it sets the stage for the occasion. We love the foil embellishments seen throughout this set. Floral motifs and pink letterpress text, featured on the information cards, are a nice addition to the overall presentation.

Excellent photography with gold foil lettering brings to life this Save the Date. It’s a simple and elegant design that captures the moment and sets the tone for what’s to come with their invitation suite. We are so happy we had the opportunity to work with this lovely couple. Congratulations on your special day, Hayley and Jay!

Below is a photo of the original invitation that sparked the creative customization.

To prepare for your own occasion, come visit us at our San Diego shop. We’d love to help you customize your dream wedding invitations!
