The ladies of Mélangerie sent me this wonderfully modern beach invite and program they designed for a couple getting married in St. Maarten (umm, jealous??) I love how they captured the essence of a beach wedding without going overboard.
LANA & STEVE’S BEACH WEDDING PAPERIE
Lana & Steve were married on a beach in St. Maarten during the Spring of 2009. Their invitation was inspired by the sea, but also reflected the couple’s modern taste and the formality of their wedding ceremony. Each wedding event is indicated on a separate card joined together by a coordinating band. When assembled, Lana & Steve’s invitation references the ocean’s tide.
We also created programs fashioned as fans, a sea shell inspired guest book, and wavy, calligraphic escort cards & table numbers to accent the day’s festivities.

Joy did such a great job with her invites, I’m so glad she sent them! Letterpressed them all herself too!
I thought these were right up your alley…Boyfriend and i are getting married in DUMBO at Smack Mellon.. on earth day! April 22…i can’t decide if i was more excited to get married or do wedding crafts! we had so much fun making our own announcements and save the dates that i wanted to do the invites as well..i’ve pretty much always been obsessed with letterpress so i took a workshop at The Arm (thearmnyc.com) in Brooklyn.. then bf and i came up with the idea for our invite.. i figured out illustrator, had a plate made and went back into the studio to press all of them! im in love.. i could do it all day! ha!

Aren’t these invites just the coolest? New custom work from Swayspace…I just love the woodgrain and how the text wraps itself in between.
