Winter Wedding Inspiration Board II ~ Modern Meets Recycled

Modern Meets Recycled Wedding Invitation Set

With the smells of cinnamon and spice and everything nice, what better time to get married than during the Holiday Season! There are may different Holiday color palettes that can be taken advantage of during this jolly time of year. From silver to blue; or gold and white, to the classic red and green, today's Christmas color match ups are unlimited. Create a stylish holiday wedding - don't let the HO HO HO's steer you in one direction. Don't forget the yuletide time of year is also filled with snowflakes, crisp cool air and lots of sweet tasting treats. But before we go ahead and hang up our stocking lets take a look at a more rustic Christmas wedding inspiration.

Mixing a little modern with a little recycled we created a rustic wedding invitation which we appropriately call, "Modern meets Recycled". Two layers of recycled paper are united together to form this elegant square invite with contemporary formatting. The first layer of card stock is an off-white card with specks of metallic gold. The second layer of this invitation is a tan color which is also used for the matching reply post card. Keeping with this earthy feel we harmonized this modish invite with some natural basics. Give your guests a little bit of nature to take home with them, with these evergreen saplings wrapped in burlap. Carry over the burlap theme to your table dressings as place mats on top of a flannel knitted blanket. Finish the table off with white candles in over sized vases with holly berries in between. Tie it all together in you bouquet with holly berries, ivory roses, evergreen springs and a gold wrap and you'll be tempted to wail Falalalala...lalalala!!!

Winter Wedding Inspiration Board I ~ Ticket to Broadway

As we make the transition from Fall to Winter we tend to think of darker, richer, and deeper color palettes for wedding choices. The oranges and amber's turn into reds and golds and although the cinnamon aroma remains, pumpkins change to cranberries as we welcome the winter solstice. This season is the perfect time to work with contrasting colors to create that WOW factor!

Check out our Winter Inspiration Board below featuring our "Ticket to Broadway" wedding's what it entails: The landscape style invitation is printed on an ivory shimmer card and bordered with a deep red shimmer card which is adhered to a black shimmer pocket fold. This ivory, red and black invitation set includes 2 information cards which fit perfectly in the below pocket. This Broadway theme invitation is closed with an ivory grosgrain ribbon and personalized tag.
We love the tiny touch of red added to this invitation which is why we matched it to this tiny little ring bearer and his daddy:) We followed this with an oh so perfect touch of red on one of our favorite of course!!! Lastly, the ivory and black cupcakes - who doesn't love cupcakes???!!!

Tags tags and more tags

TAG: label, a small piece of cloth, paper, plastic, or other material attached to something as a label or means of identification.

We love those cute, colorful and stylish tags. Many of our pocket fold invitations are sealed closed while showcasing a tag. Tags have monograms, quotes, images, wedding dates, names and/or a combination of a few things. Wedding invitation tags can match the inside colors of the invitation with multiple layers of paper and are either attached right to the invite or attached to a ribbon. If they are not on a pocket fold invitation then they are on a thread of ribbon or hemp hanging on eagerly for your guests to read them. 

There are endless ways to display your invitation tag. Here are some examples of how we went above and beyond the regular tag...


For this bride and groom's Broadway themed wedding they wanted to omit the inner envelope but still personalize who was receiving each invitation. We suggested printing each guest's name, on an individual tag in lieu of an inner envelope. What a fabulous idea for this knockout invitation we call Ticket to Broadway.


Just add an image or theme you've used on your invitation to a simple monogram and date and presto... you have a simple yet bold tag. Below is the tag used on our "Anchored in Love" wedding  invitation. The anchor was used throughout this invitation set displaying it on the top of each enclosure card and invite itself.

Simple Monogram Tags

Names, date, images are sometimes not needed. A simple classic "H&E" may be all you need. These small tags were adhered to a hemp rope which wrapped around one of our handmade paper pocket fold invitations which we've named, Endless Summer. We also implemented the same monogram to a larger tag placed on their matching "matchbook style" programs.

Custom Designed Tags

If you want us to design an image for you - NO PROBLEM! And then, you'd like a tag made out of that same image...DUNZO! Check out the waves...just imagine it and it can be created, and then made into a tag of course:)

Picture Tags

If you want to incorporate a photo into your wedding invitations without all of the overkill, why not simply include it as a tag like the following couple did. This couple had a caricature drawn of the two of them including sunflowers, which was another important element in their wedding design. Since they had a destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, we cut the silver shimmer backing paper into a custom shaped luggage tag and then OLÉ!

Information/Special Message Tags

Tags can also be used for giving your guests information. On our "Please Recycle" invitation there are two tags on the back of this Earth Friendly invite. The first tag is made of plantable paper and the second tag is the information and directions about planting the paper for their guests. Not only does this tag give a little back to Mother Nature, but also sets the tone for their Green Wedding to come!

Finter Inspiration Board II ~ Tiffany's on the Beach

Soooo excited about another Finter inspiration. In case you're not in "the know" of is our newly named season combining two wonderfully now seasons: Fall and Winter. We have matched up one of our extremely popular wedding invitations, Tiffany's on the Beach, which is where our inspiration was derived. We have had so many couples recently expressing interest in this formerly known as a "summer wedding invitation", for the Fall & Winter months that we were thrilled to include our "Tiffany's on the Beach" wedding invitation into this inspiration is what it entails:

The wedding invitation is printed on a bright white card with sand on the corner of the card; it is bordered with a rich black card stock, and bordered, once again with a tiffany colored shimmer card stock. This set includes a single panel reply card and a dinner and dancing information card. The entire set, or (stackable invitation) as we like to call it, is wrapped in a smooth black satin ribbon and a matching tag displaying the couple's monogram and wedding date. We paired this Fall invitation (and Winter invitation) okay, okay, okay...FINTER invitation with this beautiful slight sweetheart neck wedding dress, a 3 tiered white wedding cake with clean modern lines and delicate flowers and of course stillllllllllettos - gooooooorrrrrrrrgeous!!!!
