Playful patterned rehearsal dinner & brunch invitations

We love the way these rehearsal dinner and brunch invitations tie several different patterns together. Our Emory frame cartouche is included on all of the cards, but varying patterns surround the frame on the rehearsal dinner invitation, brunch card, and reply card. The airy, tropical color palette of sea mist and papaya helps set the tone for these fun wedding weekend events.

Modern tri-fold save the dates

These fun tri-fold save the dates from the Village Invites are perfect for a destination wedding in Miami! Vibrant, neon orange ink paired perfectly with the cool, custom gray ink that Amanda and Nick chose for their save the dates, which were inspired by our Chablais design

Chic double-sided save the dates

These simple yet sophisticated double-sided save the dates from Events feature both letterpress printing and foil stamping. Jill and John tied the knot in Mexico, so they chose our Rainier design and included save the date essentials on the front. Extra details — like weekend events and a wedding website — were included for guests on the back.

Petite letterpress save the dates

The sweetest little sea mist heart highlighted Liza & Richie’s special day on their Chapman letterpress save the dates. Corner rounding and a custom stamp featuring the same little blue heart were added on as finishing touches.

Supplies:

Directions:

  1. Gather your supplies.
  2. Cut a strip of double-sided gift wrap 2″ wide by 24″ long.
  3. Accordion fold the paper in about 1/2″ wide folds continuing the length of the paper strip.
  4. Apply the glue stick to both 2″ ends and glue together creating a cylinder.  Allow to dry for a few minutes.
  5. Flatten cylinder to create a circular medallion.  Using your glue gun, apply a small dot of hot glue in the center of the medallion and hold circle together for a few seconds to allow glue to harden.
  6. Using your 2 1/2″ round punch, cut two circles out of the gift wrap.  Using your glue gun, adhere one circle to each side of the medallion.  We chose to use the opposite design on each side.
  7. Cut a 6″ piece of ribbon and notch one end.
  8. Glue ribbon and pin to the back of the medallion.
  9. If you’d like, print Little Yellow Couch’s Fan Club Titles on card stock.  Using your 2″ round punch (or scissors), cut out the circle.  Glue to the center of the front of your medallion.
  10. Go make someone’s day!

Here’s a printable PDF with step by step instructions. Many thanks to the Little Yellow Couch for sharing this cute DIY with us!

Eco-friendly wedding inspiration shoot featuring Smock’s Cimarron suite on Green Wedding Shoes!

We’re thrilled to share photos from a recent collaboration with the talented Kate Ignatowski that was featured today on Green Wedding Shoes! Our Cimarron letterpress invitation suite help set the tone for this rustic, eco-friendly wedding inspiration shoot, which took place at Pioneer Farm. Kate was inspired by her experience of shifting her business to be more environmentally conscious, so she reached out to a team of earth-friendly vendors to prove that having a wedding with low-to-no impact on the environment is totally possible (and incredibly pretty!). We love the end results – take a look!
