Shining the spotlight on silver foil

Silver has been making its mark on all sorts of Bella Figura wedding invitations these days — modern and classic designs alike have been featuring silver foil stamping for an added touch of glamour. Whether you choose matte or shiny silver foil (or both!), adding this classic metallic can up the sophistication factor on any invitation. Check out some of the beautiful invitations we’ve printed with silver foil lately!

Matte and shiny silver foil stamping has been wildly popular for the 2012 wedding season!

Bella Figura in the press, fall 2012

We love seeing the real weddings of our customers, but it’s an extra-special treat when we get to see them in print! Martha Stewart Weddings magazine featured not one, but two real weddings of Bella Figura brides & grooms in their Fall 2012 issue. The first wedding featured our modern Pyramid design by Ellie Snow, while the second showcased our Garden Vine design by Erin Jang. Check out some of the other fantastic publications that Bella Figura has been spotted in this fall.

Two invitations from Bella Figura were featured in the 2012 Fall issue of Martha Stewart Weddings

Inside Weddings included several Bella Figura invitations for their Fall 2012 issue as well — Kelle Anne McCarter’s Canto design, Lindsy Aragona’s Overlook design and a customization of Jamie Lea Bertsch’s Cecilia all shared the spotlight.

Modern Letterpress Wedding Invitations: What’s big for 2012

Our latest letterpress wedding invitation release was full of many modern gems, but today we’re sharing the top 6 modern invitations so far from 2012. We’ve noticed neon shows its pretty little head in a sophisticated way (or think about neon edge painting on a very formal invite!). Black ink on a modern letterpress design keeps things formal while still feeling new. Foil, of course, is on the list — we are especially loving double foil (think matte silver and shiny silver, or silver paired with gold). You’ll find names in oversized fonts, along with slightly untraditional text layout and minimal design. Want to see more? Check out all of our modern wedding invitations here.

What are your favorite colors, fonts, and invitation designs for a modern wedding? Tell us in the comments section below!
