Don't get me wrong - Modern Wedding Stationery is also Fabulous

I was certainly not being exclusive with yesterday's post. I love classic and traditional, but I love modern too. Fortunately, I'm no longer a bride and don't have to make these choices.

When I got married 3 years ago, my friend Brooke designed my wedding invitations. At the time it was a side thing for her - what she loved and hoped to do professionally someday. Today, Brooke is a designer for the amazing Two Paperdolls custom boutique. And I just had to share this modern letterpress design from their blog, Louella Court. My wedding was in Philadelphia, and if I had to plan it again now, these would be the invitations...

The Charm of Classic Wedding Stationery

I think that a lot of brides actually become overwhelmed with all of the ideas and options presented to them by wedding web sites and blogs. I know that I would! How do you decide what you want for your wedding when you like so many different styles, colors, motifs, printing can be a bear.

On Saturday I had the pleasure of sitting down with a June bride and her mother to look at stationery for her Savannah wedding. She knew what she wanted as soon as she saw it in the first book we looked through, and I just love it. A classic invitation will never go out of style and I think think that this White Dots Invitation by William Arthur is so perfect. Beautiful script keeps it traditional, and the dotted embossed border adds interest and some fun.

Do you think that the classic is too easily confused with boring? I do. But don't be confused about this bride - her thank you notes are crimson.

Design*Sponge Savannah Wedding

We could go on and on about what a treat it was to work with Grace and Aaron. They are creative, kind and have a sweet sweet love that shone through the entire day. But do you want to know the biggest perk to working with a blogger? She blogged about her wedding for us! In 5 parts! What could we say about the day that she didn't say better? More behind-the-scenes information on the planning process will be shared on The Bride's Guide in the coming week or two, but reading Grace's thoughts is a treat.

Check out what Grace had to say about her Savannah wedding on Design*Sponge, accompanied by the beautiful pictures from Belathee Photography.
