WEDDING WEBSITES

While we're paper lovers ourselves, we've experienced first hand how difficult it is to include every little detail your guests should know within your invitation suite, while still maintaining an elegantly simple balance. We've found that the cure for this dilemma is to create an equally as elegant wedding website via Squarespace to include those not-so-adorable, but ever-so-important details, and avoid any day of calls and texts from your guests and insure pure bridal bliss on your big day. See below for a list of items to be sure to include!

Your Story

Your guests will LOVE getting to know you two as a couple prior to your big day! Give them the nitty-gritty details of how you met, your first date, and how he asked and your guests will arrive feeling even more emotionally connected than before!

Your Ceremony & Reception Venue Details

Addresses can be unnecessary and inconvenient to a bride & groom who likes the light and airy feel for their wedding invitations. Point them to your website for these unattractive details!

Accommodations

Include hotel information, as well as a link to make reservations for your guests convenience!

Attire

Make some clothing suggestions to your guests so that they don't have to wonder what the appropriate attire is for your shindig. It's also a good idea to point out if the ceremony will be on grass, and suggest ladies don't wear stilettos!

Registry

Something you should never include enclosed in your invitation is your registry information. Wedding etiquette says to only give out registry information on a bridal shower invitation, wedding website, or when asked directly from your guests. With the registry industry going more online nowadays, this is an easy way for your guests to shop and to avoid the awkward gift conversation.

Song Requests

This is a fun way to get your guests involved in the wedding planning process, as well as take some pressure off of picking the perfect playlist for the dance floor!

Explore Page

Invite your guests to explore your city by hand picking your favorite spots to grab coffee, drinks, or a bite to eat. Even include a little map, pointing out each of these spots in relation to your host hotel, venue, and local airport.

 

Overall, there are endless options on what you could include on your wedding website and we'd love to help you create this one of a kind paper & web experience for your guests prior to their arrival to your wedding.

SOFIA SUITE

This timeless suite stole our hearts with its letterpress impressions and delicate use of typography. Sometimes we like to take the simple route and let the paper shine through, and our Sofia suite did just that! Foggy grey envelopes paired with soft ivory and deckled paper gives our sweet Sofia a touch of vintage elegance.

Stay tuned for more images of this suite (taken by Ivory + Bliss) to be featured in Smitten Magazine for their Issue 17, Intrinsic Issue, coming out in August!

LAUREL SUITE

When dreaming up the Laurel Suite, we knew we wanted to use a transparent overlay somehow. The combination of minimal aesthetics with the delicate pencil floral illustrations made a dreamy wedding suite with plenty of character to go around. While the majority of the papers were neutral in color, including white, ivory, and grey, we introduced color into the suite with a soft blue save the date that incorporated the floral illustrations perfectly. Tied up with a delicate gold thread for just a touch of elegance, this suite will always have our hearts!

IVY SUITE

Hey friend!

Today we're featuring our Ivy suite, created as a handmade paper study that we have fallen in love with. We hope you'll adore it too!

This suite is printed on handmade ivory paper from Fabulous Fancy Pants, and paired with a beautiful mauve handmade paper envelope from Owl Post Calligraphy. We kept the design minimal and delicate to let the texture of the paper shine through. Adorned with a hand debossed line on each piece, the tactile elements of this suite create an impactful experience for each guest who receives it.

We look forward to using these handmade paper vendors and continuing with this aesthetic for future projects!
