Invitations We Love – Miranda & Eric
You may remember Miranda & Eric’s fabulous wedding this past September (see Part 1 and Part 2 on the blog) in DC and several people asked about their gorgeous invites, so we wanted to share a few more photos of them. Mindy and her fantastic event planner, Jamie Sears of Simply Chic Events, custom designed the invites and all the paper products through Haute Papier in Georgetown and they turned out beautifully. They really captured the mood and feeling of Mindy and Eric’s wedding celebration, as well as their personalities.
They further personalized the invitation box with photo stamps featuring DC landmarks. Such a nice, little touch with big impact.
Who wouldn’t LOVE to get this in the mail?!
Yummy letterpress on thick paper. Love it!
Stuff We Love – Custom Made Stamps
We’ve blogged about Etsy before, it’s simply one of the best sites on the ‘net, especially for those planning a wedding. Instead of handwriting and having printed labels on your invites, how about having a custom made return address stamp? Or DIY your invites and paper goods with a stamp depicting your wedding theme. If you’re having a summer wedding, for example, you can have a stamp made of a ferris wheel. You could also do your wedding monogram or “logo”. The possibilities are endless!
In that vein, we were thrilled to find foryoo, a custom designed stamp shop on Etsy. We had a couple of custom stamps made as well as a return address one. Hey, anything that can make paying bills a bit easier is totally worth it! Sandy is truly an artist and is dedicated to providing quality products to happy clients. She primarily makes address stamps, but if you can dream it, I bet she can make it. I just need to figure out what else I can stamp so I can order more!
