Summer Wedding Invitations

Getting married this summer?! It’s time to order your wedding invitations!

Wedding invitations should be sent approximately 8 weeks prior to the big day. If you are having a destination wedding or many out of town guests, wedding invitations should be sent sooner, about 10 weeks before. Of course, every wedding is unique and you’re welcome to send them as early as you’d like. Whatever your situation, we can help you plan your wedding stationery timeline appropriately.

Wedding invitations can take anywhere from two to five weeks to order depending on the printing style. Digital printing and thermography have the quickest turnaround times while engraving, letterpress and foil stamping take the longest. We always recommend getting started early so you aren’t rushing through the process. You’ll feel less stressed as your wedding day approaches!

Whether you’re having a garden, beach, vineyard or destination wedding, we can help you find and customize an invitation that sets the tone for your beautiful, summer wedding!

Here are a few of our picks for summer inspired wedding invitations:

Gray + Rose Gold Modern Invitations

Bella Figura has featured our customization of one of their wedding invitations on their blog!

Jamie and Eric started with Bella Figura’s Belsay wedding invitation suite. We helped them transition the style of the invitation from romantic garden, to modern and contemporary. We kept the beautiful rose gold foil and changed the letterpress ink color to pewter. The vine motif and added border were used sparingly across the other pieces in their suite to maintain a cohesive look. The custom hand calligraphy added just the right amount of creative elegance! Everything was then packaged in a custom foil printed pocketfold.

Below is the Belsay wedding invitation as originally designed.

The new design is dramatically different than the original. Let us help you customize your dream wedding invitations! To start, schedule an appointment to meet with one of our creative design consultants. We will walk you through the process and bring your vision to life!

Destination Wedding Invitations

Sweet Paper was recently featured on Bella Figura’s blog for our customization of one of their wedding invitation designs! We enjoyed working with this wonderful couple to design beautiful letterpress wedding invitations for their Hawaiian wedding! We changed the orientation of the invitation to be horizontal and used charcoal and geranium letterpress ink. The island-inspired pattern was blind debossed on the outside of the pocketfold and the inside was digitally printed with a flood of pale gray ink. One of our favorite elements of the invitation is the fun pop of geranium edge painting.
