Custom Watercolor Wedding Invitations

Incorporating watercolor into wedding invitations is the trend that just won't quit. If anything, we seem to be getting more and more requests for painting everything from greenery and flowers to maps and venue facades. Some watercolor pieces are more abstract - a swash here and a stroke there - but all are simply beautiful. We have several more watercolor pieces currently in-process, and we can't wait to share!

For some pieces, we create individual elements - each leaf, flower, or map element is a separate piece which we can then manipulate and arrange together graphically once we digitize the painting. And for some pieces, we create the texture or the entire piece as one full painting and simply place it as a single graphic (most often though, we prefer the former, as it allows us more customization without having to repaint the whole piece over and over again for each revision or adjustment).

If you have been dreaming of including watercolor in your wedding invitation suite, you've found the right place to bring your vision to reality.

New Wedding Invitation Inspiration

We have already held two in-house photo shoots of our most recent invitation designs this year and we couldn't wait any longer to share them! We have changed up our styling props and techniques (still always aiming to not over-style our work to the point the props become distracting from the designs) and we have loved working with Izehi Photography. A sampling of recent photos is shown here, but as always, you can view more in our Custom Wedding Invitation Design Gallery. Enjoy!

RSVP Response Cards

No two RSVP cards are exactly the same - vertical or horizontal, minimalist or packed to the brim with info, big and brushy type or prim and proper serif block fonts - they’re always different! Art by Ellie put together a super-helpful comprehensive blog post on RSVP cards last year and we’d like to take the opportunity to share it again as we near peak spring wedding season.

As we mentioned, “RSVP cards serve a very important (and obvious) purpose,” but the opportunities for customization are truly endless! We encourage all brides-to-be and wedding industry professionals to brush up on their RSVP education HERE, where you’ll find info on:

  • RSVP cards vs. RSVP postcards vs. RSVP-prompt cards

  • A good timeline to ask your guests to return their RSVPs to you

  • The purpose of the big “M” (and alternatives)

  • Lots of samples of the endless ways to word the rest of the card, from formal to whimsical, and even funny

Let us know if you have additional response card questions we can answer!
