Sneak peek: new wedding invitation designs will be here soon!

We introduced our newest wedding album at the National Stationery Show earlier this month, and we can’t wait for you to see the new designs! The album features 12 wedding invitation suites with styles ranging from modern to vintage to traditional. New fonts, patterns, and colors can be found throughout the new suites, which will be available in stores this summer. Take a look at some of our new favorites! 

Linden wedding invitation suite from Smock

Above: our new Linden suite features bronze shine foil stamping on our white bamboo paper and a leafy vintage print pattern. The foil stamped menus are printed on our 100% recycled gray paper and complement the suite beautifully! 

New Prospect wedding invitations from Smock

The new Prospect suite features another new foil color: quartz! Darker than our rose gold foil, quartz has some seriously pink shine, and pairs perfectly with our jute ink. 

SC_A11A1614 Exeter wedding invitations from Smock

The vintage prints used on our modern Exeter suite are stunning – we love the classic black letterpress printing combined with the dramatic Dutch painting look of the patterns. 

Lennon foil stamped wedding invitations from Smock

Last but not least, show-stopper Lennon draws on some of our favorite trends: painterly patterns, modern script fonts, and the perfect amount of foil. The suite pairs tawny matte foil with black letterpress printing on the wedding invitation and throughout the suite, which also includes a chic photo save the date. 

These new designs will be available on our website soon – be sure to check out our invitation gallery for even more inspiration! 

Custom floral watercolor invitation sleeves

Amanda and Neal created a stylish letterpress invitation suite for their September celebration at the Barns at Wolf Trap. We collaborated with our friends at The Dandelion Patch on the suite, which featured sweet script fonts and letterpress printing in midnight ink on our white bamboo paper. The invitations, information cards, brunch invites and response cards were all tucked  inside of the suite’s wow-worthy statement piece: a custom floral watercolor invitation sleeve in varying shades of pink, purple, orange and emerald.

Aquarium Inspired Letterpress Wedding Invitation Suite

We created a full suite for Michael and Craig’s October wedding at the New England Aquarium using different motifs from our custom library. Their custom invitations paired our pewter and ocean inks together on white bamboo paper, with our coral motif and Harrison calligraphy font adding special touches. The other cards in the suite included our sea turtle, fish, and penguin motifs, which gave subtle nods to the venue.

Lavender Ingalls suite featured on Martha Stewart Weddings + Elizabeth Anne Designs

Last summer we collaborated with California based wedding planner Amy Nichols to create a gorgeous lavender inspiration shoot that’s been featured on both Martha Stewart Weddings and Elizabeth Anne Designs! Our Ingalls suite helped set the tone for the shoot, which took place at Amy’s parents’ avocado and lemon ranch in Santa Paula. Inspired Southern California’s lavender fields, the shoot featured a wide range of purple shades — from the candles to the flowers and even the napkins! Many thanks to Amy for including us in this beautiful shoot!

Romantic floral wedding suite with chevron invitation sleeves

Samantha and Thomas selected a romantic blush color palette for their July wedding. The couple celebrated at the bride’s family home, and worked with Sweet Paper to customize our Chapman suite. We created chevron invitation sleeves to contain their set, which included invites, reply cards, brunch cards, direction cards, and welcome dinner invitations. Finishing touches included our pink vintage rose patterned envelope liners and corner rounding for a soft, polished look.

Custom Chinoiserie inspired letterpress wedding invitation suite

We created a completely custom letterpress invitation suite for Honor and Jay’s black tie celebration at Winvian Farm earlier this month. The entire suite – which included an invitation and folio, save the date, reply card, website card, rehearsal dinner invitation, brunch card, and a custom map – featured custom, hand-drawn illustrations inspired by Chinoiserie style porcelain. Little nods to the wedding venue were worked into the custom illustrations, which spanned the entire back of the invitation folio and were sprinkled throughout the additional pieces.

Hot Pink + Robin’s Egg Roxbury Bat Mitzvah Invitations and social notes

Letterpress printed in a vibrant color pairing of hot pink and Robin’s egg blue, this customization of our Roxbury invitation is both festive and fun. We created reply cards, a party card, and a brunch card to accompany Ava’s Bat Mitzvah invitations, along with simple social notes to match. Each piece was sent out in style: the invitation and social note envelopes each featured colorful patterned envelope liners, and we even created a custom stamp design to match the set!

We always love seeing real weddings from our customers! Alice and Dan worked with The Dandelion Patch to create their custom Haddington wedding invitations, which we printed in black ink on our white bamboo paper and paired with our popular pink vintage rose patterned envelope liners. They even ordered custom pink rose stamps to match! Their beautiful wedding took place at the Inn at Perry Cabin, a beautiful venue along the banks of the Chesapeake. Here are a few of our favorite photos, but be sure to check out Southern Weddings to see the rest of the images from their big day!

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.
