Need printed proof that less is more? Check out this stripped down version of our Sweet Daisy invitation design printed for Evan’s Bar Mitzvah. The fun and flirty daisies were removed in favor of ultra modern white space – leaving the crisp letterpress printed type to take center stage. For a not so subtle pop of color, edges were treated to Forest Shine foil.

If you’ve never seen hand calligraphy on a Bar Mitzvah invitation before, you aren’t alone. But why should weddings have all the hand lettered fun? Here our Belle calligraphy adds a touch of graceful whimsy to the clean, modern layout of our Irving invitation design.

Our Birch invitation design is always a favorite around here – and this customization for Benjamin’s Bar Mitzvah is no exception.

We loved seeing how our Simple Charms invitation design set the tone for Allison and Nowell’s stylish backyard bohemian California wedding. They customized the design by including a fun and colorful patterned envelope liner in our refined mosaic pattern in sherbet, sand and pewter inks. Vibrant patterns were used throughout the wedding decor, too, and personal touches were sprinkled in throughout the day. From mini margaritas to one of the prettiest table runners (sewn by the mother of the bride!) we love all of the thoughtful details that were woven into this wedding. See even more photos from this real wedding on Style Me Pretty!
Congratulations Allison and Nowell! We hope you enjoyed every moment of your wedding.
