When planning a vintage garden or chic floral inspired wedding, our "Fleur" design is the perfect fit for you! The vintage hand sketched florals that frame the invitation, makes this design take on an overall beautiful and delicate look. Our featured customized client design looks gorgeous in champagne, rose and azalea colored papers. The colors work so well together, don't you think?! The invitation suite was upgraded with a nice ribbon band wrapped around of the back of the invitation backing layer. This provides a nice presentation for the insert cards once the set is tucked away into the envelope.
Choosing the best font for your invitations can be easy or a challenge depending upon how you approach it. The designs in our gallery feature a different fonts that were expertly paired with that particular design. The easy approach would be to keep the same font as shown in the invitation, but the challenging part could be to change the font to change the tone of the invitation. Today we'll focus on selecting the best script (cursive) type style for your invitations.
Using the Script Type image above as our reference we'll list the font numbers that would match with the tone of your wedding. Notice that there are fonts repeated in different sections, this is because when paired with different graphics the overall look will change! Have fun selecting your perfect font!

Today we'd like to share some commonly misspelled words to make sure there are no accidental snafus on your printed wedding invitations! These words can be tricky because they may not be caught with spell check. The best way to proofread your invitation is to print out your proof and physically read, and also read it backwards to catch those tricky words...trust us, it works! Lastly, have at least one to two other pair of eyes review it for you as well. When you are staring at the same proof every day, it is very hard to catch mistakes.
Take note of the list below and happy invitation proofing!
-Aisle vs Isle
-Altar vs Alter
-Night vs Nite
-To vs Too
-Tomorrow vs Tommorrow
-Until vs Untill
-Presence vs Presense
-Twelve vs Tweleve (check all numbers!)
-Accommodations vs Accomodations
-Double check the spelling of parents names, if listed
-Double check the spelling of all of your venues
