Notions and snapshots that shape our day to day.

Stationery Trends: Glitter

We are preparing like crazy ladies for the National Stationery Show in New York next month. In doing so, we’ve looked back on the stationery trends we’ve seen from our clients in the past year. GLITTER is huge. Glitter envelope liners, glitter invitation backing, glitter text. We love it! We’ve loved seeing how brides and planners bring a bit of bling into an extremely classy affair. What a great way to give your guests a pop of the unexpected. We hope this trend keeps up!

We Love Charleston!

Spring is upon us, and we are brainstorming things to do in our lovely Charleston, South Carolina. We are working on so many destination weddings here in the studio, all of which encourage their guests to explore Charleston during their wedding weekend. Above are a couple of hand drawn icons we love to use in save the dates and welcome packets!

In the Studio: Painting

Charleston surprised us this morning with 34 degrees in late March. We decided to post a recent watercolor project to remind us that spring IS on the way! Above is an invitation for a wedding at Middleton Place in late May. We custom painted some of Katie’s favorite florals to frame her wedding invitation. We love the soft pinks and golds. Watercolor painting is a great way to customize your set and make it distinctly yours!

Map Your Weekend: Watercolor

Maps are a creative and interesting visual to use on any of your wedding stationery—especially for a destination wedding! Lindsay and Douglas were married in the Grand Cayman Islands this past January. The custom map that we painted for their welcome bag oriented guests to all the locations and activities of their wedding weekend. Maps like this look great on save the dates, welcome packets, and any other wedding stationery you can dream of!

Love Your Engagement Photos?

Do you love your engagement photos and want to share your favorite with all your guests? This save the date not only included a snapshot of the couple, but also shared important information like accommodations and events. Kristen and Andrew chose a letterpress two card save the date tied with a blush ribbon. We mounted a photo of the couple on the card. We love how clear and crisp the black and white photo looked next to the soft colors and texture of the card. Why not use an actual photo? It’s a great keepsake and looks so classy!
