Riviera Suite : Destination Wedding Invitation


Excited to introduce this new suite, Riviera, that has been added to my Resort Collection! I have slowly added in a handful of new designs to each collection and I think this design rounds out my destination collection nicely.


I am a huge fan of the botanical palm leave trend happening and enjoyed creating this suite. I especially love this color combination, but can see so many different colors working for this suite.


There is a watercolor texture within the leaves, which is subtle and gorgeous. Love.

They were a recent customization that I did for a bride looking to do a more traditional layout than Carley's wedding invitations, but loved the lace and gold foil combination. I love how they turned out, and I especially love how the bride paired them with these envelope liners made from Paper Source paper. Such a pretty combo!

Today is dreary and cold, and this beautiful garden wedding by Ava Weddings just warms me up and really has me excited for spring. Laurie and Dan were married in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens in what I can only describe as a floral wonderland and the wedding is being featured on Style Me Pretty today!

Laurie used the Isabel design for her save the dates, invitations and the programs, but love how she mixed up the colors to cover her gorgeous color pallete of purples, greys and greens.

Beyond the flowers, the thing that caught my eye the most was her gorgeous, but untraditional gray gown. It was so unique and different, but really fit the outdoor wedding vibe.

The reception was held in a gorgeous greenhouse-esque building called the Palm House. At night, the lighting was so beautiful! What a great venue.

Meet Bodega Destination Wedding Invitation

Bodega Fiesta Papel Picado Wedding Invitations by Lauren Chism

I am working on this design for a bride right now and realized I have never formally introduced it on the blog, so let's remedy that, shall we?

Bodega is my 'fiesta themed' invitation in my Resort Collection and one of my more colorful designs. It features intricate papel picado flags, that are festive, yet chic and allows for endless color combinations. This design has been fairly popular, and I really don't think I've used the same colors twice.

This might have been one of my favorite inspiration boards, maybe because I am a fan of the destination wedding, but mostly because to some, 'fiesta' means casual, but it definitely doesn't have to be. I took a more elegant stance, without sacrificing color and this is what I came up with. So pretty!

Meet Marbella: Letterpress Wedding Invitations

Marbella Ikat Letterpress Wedding Invitation by Lauren Chism Fine Papers

I kind of dropped off introducing my wedding invitations, but I want to get back to it because the inspiration boards are just too pretty not to share.

The Marbella Wedding Invitation, from the Fresh Collection, features a subtle ikat pattern with an overlay of modern typography. The tiny bow adds a little whimsy to this modern design.

I can't get enough of this olive green and gray right now, and I love seeing it translated into a wedding. Succulents anyone? Yes, please!
