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.

New Calligraphy, one of our new 2009 letterpress wedding invitation designs, has already become a favorite with brides and it’s easy to see why. It’s the perfect blend of classic style paired with a modern edge, which makes it really fun for weddings large and small, whether they be held in a grand ballroom or a funky loft. It’s one of our new favorites, too! We love to see how a simple change in ink color can make it feel so strikingly different so it’s always exciting when we print a new variation.
