I was inspired by this quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

 “There are all kinds of love in this world but never the same love twice.”

She had tons of ideas of her own, but here’s some Gatsby-inspired wedding looks I found and loved. Enjoy the sneak peak of her Save The Dates. We did black, blush and gold on a heavy shimmer paper. These will be easy, mailable postcards. Saves on postage, but still looks great and makes a fun statement about the wedding to come!

marvellous-1920s-style-wedding-dresses-ireland-photosI’m always a fan of headpieces. Plus, you can remove them during the ceremony
if you want a more timeless looking for that part of the wedding day.

Silhouette cut outs would make great toppers on cake or use within stationery.

il_fullxfull.677647742_jzdo-940x577I am all about dip-dyed feathers right now.
Would be awesome to attach names for a seating chart.

I sometimes can’t handle cakes with weird colored icing (black, for instance).
This brings in the black and gold without guests having to watch out for their teeth getting colored.

Champagne’s a must at a Gatsby-themed wedding.
Could even include a sign about “Let’s End Prohibition Tonight!”

Also soft floral hues in blush and white look beautiful any time of year.

Andie + Drew: Glamorous Summer Wedding at Mustard Seed Gardens Thu, 20 Aug 2015 22:25:07 +0000 I met Amanda (Andie) at a bachelorette party for my good friend Erin. I noticed instantly that this gal is charismatic and friendly as all get out. I spent about one evening with her and knew she was the type of person to keep good company.

Flash froward to a few years later when Andie e-mailed me while planning her own wedding. I was thrilled to design her wedding invitations. We used a mixture of gold confetti and a soft blush shimmer paper (I special ordered that stock just for this wedding!) Following are some photos of her wedding, taken by the talented 604 Studios. The wedding took place at Mustard Seed Gardens, near Indianapolis, Indiana. Enjoy!

Freebie Friday Fri, 10 Jul 2015 15:10:38 +0000 I don’t know that “Freebie Friday” is going to become an actual thing or not, but I am going to start trying to share more downloads with my readers! I will at least be making it a regular, monthly habit to share printable goods from my collections. Today I am sharing free Mr. and Mrs. sign download for your wedding. Wedding signage is a great, inexpensive way to bring your personality into your wedding or event.

I am currently working on a really fun UK Basketball print for a couple who are both fans, and using the infamous Wildcat blue throughout their wedding decor. I love stories like that! It’s always the oddest things that bring couples together – sports, awkward parties, coffee order mess ups, surfing lessons, you name it!

Palm Tree Beach Wedding Invitations Inspired by Anna Maria Island, Florida Fri, 01 May 2015 17:43:34 +0000 read more →]]> I recently came back from a trip to Florida with my family and my husband. It was a great getaway from the cold that had swallowed up the midwest. I always come back from trips with fresh perspective and tons of new inspiration for wedding invitations. I have had several brides ask specifically for a modern, simple take on beach weddings. I’ve always found that there is a simplicity and beauty to the ocean that can’t quite be compared to anything else, and my newest printable invitation is a take on that relaxed, beach vibe.

Here are a few iPhone shots from the trip. Mainly trees, since they tend to be my favorite. Some of the pictures are from Anna Maria Island, and a few others are from a day trip to Myakka River State Park. The donuts are from The Donut Experience, formerly Anna Maria Donuts. Do not miss this spot if you ever go!

]]> Taylor & Chase: An Intimate Santa Rosa Wedding Tue, 07 Apr 2015 16:35:26 +0000 read more →]]> When Taylor told me her wedding was going to feature soft, muted colors and be on the beach, I imagined a super romantic, intimate day. The actual day – was that and even more! Although many people hear “beach” and think of ocean blue, I often think of the sandy colors and jogging on quiet mornings.

The watercolor elements on the invitations featured a soft brown ombre that reminded me of the way the sand blends into the sky on foggy Florida mornings. Invitations were printed on our 110 lb. white felt paper and featured grey envelopes (purchased by the bride) and our Kraft envelopes for the RSVP.

I am happy (and humbled) to share some of the beautiful photos of Chase and Taylor’s day by the talented photographer Jennifer Blair – including invitations, signage and other paper goods designed by Howl Creative. See the rest at Style Me Pretty.

How Custom Orders Work Fri, 09 Jan 2015 17:19:17 +0000 read more →]]> I get a lot of questions about custom orders, so here’s an explanation to help you better understand how they work in the e-mail world. (Many of the brides I work with don’t even live in the same state as I do!)

After placing a custom order I send you a questionnaire and a color form, so that I have all of the details necessary to begin designing. We discuss the basic style of your invitations and your vision for your wedding day. Next I send mock ups that look like the photos below.




This proofing process ensures you get the final product you want and helps you see the entire suite design visually before it goes to press.

Hope this helps!
