I heart letterpress.

Invitations by Dawn recently released their new Letterpress Collection so I was more than excited to see some samples at my door! With fresh exclusive designs and modern color combinations, I had some immediate favorites and had take a few pics to share. I adore those neon inks! 







I love that you can pick up to two different ink colors to create your own perfect color combination on this beautiful 100% cotton stock in either 110 lb or 220lb weight! It's definitely worth checking out the entire collection here.

I love paper. I love letterpress. I love Minted.

I am SO excited about the launch of Minted's letterpress wedding invitations. They look and feel absolutely delicious. 

Pulling from their extensive indie-sourced design community, this collection oozes an artisan style that is undeniably fresh. I'm in love with so many of the designs. There is definitely something for everyone - and them some!

Here's a peek...

PaperFlowers 001A






I truly get weak in the knees browsing these handcrafted lovelies. Each with crisp, deep impressions on 100% cotton paper and a personality all their own. And to think you have the option to print these gems on their new Luxe Museum Board paper?!? Thick, thick and thick. (Literally, three sheets of paper fused together.) Gasp-worthy. Memorable. Unbendable. Luxury.

Minted is giving one lucky GetMarried reader $200 towards their wedding stationery purchase. YAHOO! LUCKY YOU! Just visit Minted and check out the entire collection and then come back and leave me a comment with the name of your fave!

There is definite power in the flower this year.

As Claude Monet once said,

{ I must have flowers. Always and always. }

I am in OBSESSED with all of the flowers popping up across fashion, home decor and of course, weddings! From bold to ditsy to watercolor to bontanical. Fresh, flirty and fun!

I love Fashion Week about as much as I love ponies (which is alot!) It is definitely on my bucket list of things to do in this wonderful lifetime...

Not only are the collections, the music, the sets and the people watching full of inspiration and ridiculous creativity...I love how that same energy is captured in the designers invitations to their shows. Getting one of these in my mailbox would be squeal-worthy!

Here are a few curated by Refinery29 that caught my eye and could be oh-so coolly translated into an invitation to any chic wedding, save the date or dinner party. (Okay maybe not exactly the petrie dish by Mathieu Mirano but it is cool and you get the gist...)

As we all know I'm a little balloon obsessed and what I stumbled upon yesterday is just fuel for the fire.

OMG. These are seriously more than adorable. Super-duper cute. Who would not be over the moon to get a happy confetti or feather-filled Bonjour Balloon at their doorstep?!?! Love.

Love the hand crafted tails that make them extra charming.

The balloons are 15 inches in diameter and last up to 10 days! So if you need a guaranteed smile - or a Yes! send one of these cheery balloons! I cannot wait to make someone's day.

This is seriously THE BEST and most creative wedding website I have seen. 

The groom, Grayden, a San-Diego based designer, designed the site and did an amazing job chronicling their love affair, featuring a photo slide show and providing details for the big day with an RSVP.


My favorite part may be the wedding party introductions! I immediately pictured how I would have depicted MY wedding party this way as they too were quite a cast of characters - and still are for that matter. (I may still just need to do this for the heck of it!)


I love how I feel that I know them and wanted to hang out with them and the whole wedding party?!? Let's be friends! That's when I know it's good.

Check out the whole wedding site here.

After making my strawberry picking debut this summer at my favorite local farm...(check out my loot!)

IMG 1881 800x533 IMG 1867 533x800 IMG 1886 495x800

I was totally inspired by these colorful (and tasty!) berries. The possibilities for such sweet accents are endless! But I would definitely say less is more with this one...the word accent is key.

Here are some of my most favorite ways to add a splash of strawberry...all are perfect for a shower - or a farm or garden wedding. Swoon.

Nothing says summer like strawberries...so go find a local farm (or farmer's market) and pick while the pickin's good!
