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.

Hey everyone…I’m in Vegas this week livin it up poker style, so the fabulous Audrey from Parcel Post will be taking over with some fabulous inspirational posts!
Hello everyone at Brooklyn Bride! In case you haven’t read my guest posts here in the past, my name is Audrey and I have a blog called Parcel Post and a paper boutique in CA called Urbanic. At the shop, I work with many brides to help them find the perfect wedding invitations for their big day. One of the first things I go over with them in our initial meeting is identifying the look and feel of their wedding. Since your save the dates and wedding invitations are usually the first glimpse your guests have into the event, it’s important to get this figured out early on … and this is always the really fun part! I love helping couples conceptualize different looks and ideas based on their style and taste. Over the next couple days while our beloved Vané is out of town, I will share some fresh ideas with you and would love to hear yours as well. The inspiration is everywhere!

I have no idea where the adorable photo booth came from… but how cute is this bridesmaids dress?!! The makeup imprintables would make perfect invitations for a shower or bachelorette party. Flower options are many, but should definitely be a little dramatic and a tad sultry. I would love to see some antique golds mixed into this equation.

Recently a bride came into Urbanic for her Save the Dates and she put together this striking color combination of yellow and natural. I loved how earthy yet mod it came out and became fixated on this color scheme.
