Parcel Post for Brooklyn Bride [no.18]

We recently re-launched Cupcake Saturdays at Urbanic and gave out tickets for people to come in and have a cupcake on us for our opening day. Our tickets had to be adorable of course, so we gathered our inspiration from Mae Mae Paperie. Megan Gonzalez is one of the talented designers we work with at the shop. I’m a big fan of her creative aesthetic and thought you would all appreciate this “ticket” save the date set she designed.

post No.5 Maps

As many of you already know, a map enclosure is often a necessary part of your wedding invitation set. The best advice I give brides when we are at this point is “do not compromise”. There is nothing worse then being completely wow-ed by an amazing invitation and then having an ugly or technical map fall out. This breaks the flow of the whole look and feel you worked so hard to create. It is always great to order them with your invitation designer but if you are over budget, there are many ways to achieve this on your own. These days there are many online tools to assist you. Be careful to choose fonts and inks to compliment your invitations and be sure to get rid of all access information. The cleaner the better. If you feel intimidated by the process of D.I.Y, hit up a friend that is design savvy and ask them for the favor. You are after all, the bride! Your maps should tie in with the overall theme and appearance of your wedding invitation. Below are some of my favorite map designers…

post No.4 Country Creative

• in this lineup, nature meets design with charming down home flair •

If you are having a country wedding, make it enchanted! There is something so special about being around nature and tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Why not add to it with some creative charm? You can up-play earthy colors with shapes and texture. The save the date CD by tiny pine is such a clever idea! You can send your song or music to your guests and get the party started early.

pp_headerpost No. 3 Beachy Mod

• in this lineup, bold graphics and bright colors of citrus, sunshine and ocean •

If you are having a wedding on the beach, a new direction would be to go modern with it! We have all seen the shells, seahorses and palm tress, but why not mix it up with some sunsets, seagulls, and ocean waves? I am really excited about the first picture below. We are working with a bride right now at Urbanic who is doing a Venice Beach themed wedding. The picture is the back of her RSVP postcard. One of our amazing designers Emily, put together a collage of actual photos taken in Venice to capture the look and feel of the location. She nailed it! You can brighten up any venue with garlands, place mats and favors. Instead of candy you could give guests something they can keep or use during their stay, like a beach journal. Below are two of my favorite invitations currently in the shop. As you can see, you can really go stylish and modern but still capture the essence of a coastal destination.

post No. 2 Artsy Indie

• In this lineup, bright punchy colors, retro nostalgia, and a little bit of edge •

If you are a creative type, then have a blast with your wedding and go alternative with all the special details! You can make your wedding reflect who you are by thinking outside the box with all of the little elements that shout personality. Why not make some of your own decorations? (but be sure to enlist friends for help!) I love the paint brush idea for the escort cards. It’s so original and the social aspect of guests sorting through the pile is a great mingling opportunity. Escort cards don’t have to be tented pieces of paper. On that same note, table numbers don’t have to be numbers, they can be colors, cities, band names, islands, whatever you want them to be. Your wedding day is the perfect opportunity to create an expression of who you are as a couple.
