Glamorous Decorations to Hang

One of my favorite things about weddings is that it’s a chance to really decorate the place!  Whether you are having a formal ballroom reception or a rustic chic garden reception there are always ways to dress up the space.  Here are some ideas:

Some Other New Additions to our Shop

My focus the last month or so has been to get more wedding invitations and Christmas cards up on my shop.  Here’s a look at some other new invitation additions to Whoa Nellie Press:

This collection is all hand drawn then scanned into the computer and manipulated in Illustrator.  Perfect for an outdoor garden wedding.

This collection features a Montgolfiers-style hot air balloon and definitely has a vintage vibe.  Perfect for a destination or travel-themed wedding.

Are you in love with color like I am?  Then this invitations suite is perfect!

Alex’s and Jeremy’s Letterpress Invitations are Here!

Several months ago now, I had an invitation giveaway to launch my wedding invitation business.  I’ve been doing calligraphy for some time now and wanted a new challenge.  In return for my giveaway, Alex worked hard to help me with branding Whoa Nellie Press.  Being a graphic designer herself, Alex has given me plenty of tips, including help with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.  We designed her letterpress invitations suite together, with help from her friend, and illustrator Brooke, and created some pretty darn smashing invitations!  Although we are still working on the response card (as her taste test date is in November) and details card, I couldn’t help but share what’s been printed so far.  What do you think?

While I’m glowing with excitement and in design mode, I’d also love to hear any inspiration ideas for future invitations.  Please share your ideas!  In addition, take a look at our shop, with several wedding invitation suites newly added ranging from bold and colorful, to vintage, to rustic.  I’m so excited to hear your feedback!

This is what’s been printed so far – invitation and response envelope.  The response card and “The Particulars” card is yet to come.  Alex decided to go with the vibrant purple outer envelopes and a mix of fun calligraphy in my Skinny Lucy font.

A close up of the beautiful floral illustration Brooke did to complete the invitation.  I love this style for an outdoor wedding.

Another shot.  To make these invitations I worked on the calligraphy first, scanned the words into Illustrator and then manipulated them from there.

The joining of names using a heart on the response card was Alex’s idea.  So cute!

I am totally beaming with excitement as I proudly show off Alex’s wedding invitations.  We’ve gone back and forth on formatting and I’m just thrilled with the end result.  This invitations suite is for sale on my etsy shop.
