Wedding Invitation Inspiration

Rifle Paper Co. I thought I’d start the week off by sharing with you some of my favorite wedding invitation companies. We often start working with the couple early on in their wedding planning process, usually long before they’ve even thought of invitations. We’re receive a lot of gorgeous invitations in the mail that we later film, so I wanted to share some favorites. Soon, I’ll blog about invitations and printables for those who prefer to DIY.

Our Hello Lucky Wedding Invitations

Rifle Paper Co. offers hand-painted illustrations and lettering  in a nostalgic and timeless style. Some of the thank you cards we send our brides and grooms come from this company. I am in love with their style! They create custom wedding orders and are developing a wedding collection.

Hello Lucky is where we got our own invitations. I’d searched high and low for something inspired by papel picado, in our colors of red and aqua when I came across these (to the right). They offer letterpress or flat printed invitations in an array of designs and colors–everything from Art Nouveau-inspired to Texas-inspired! They also now offer printable invitations to suit all budgets.

Inviting Letterpress AustinAustinite Ashley McNeil of Inviting Letterpress created our stunning business cards and creates a lot of adorable stationery–some of our thank you cards come from her press as well. I’ve worked with Ashley in Austin Craft Riot and Austin Wedding Party. She offers personalized wedding designs for those who want to keep it local!

Bright Eyed Birdie is another Austin-based option for invitations. Run by a fellow Austin Craft Riot member, the shop offers several options of simple invitations with ribbons and wax seals.

The Print Parlor is a boutique stationery and design studio created by designer Jennifer Breuss with lots of really neat rustic and vintage-inspired designs.

Monumental Designs offers handmade custom invitations and coordinating accessories featuring the artwork of Kristy Rice. They feature hand-painted designs. I got one in the mail from a bride a few months ago, and it was stunning! It’s still one of my favorites.
