Wedding Invitation Trend Watch: Vertical Envelopes

It's always exciting when we receive a box of samples from our factory, as we love to see what couples are ordering. One trend we've noticed recently is vertical envelopes—it's a great way to add a contemporary twist to a classic invitation. Below are a few of our favorites.

From left to right:

1. This pearl folder invitation with a satin band and gold kalogram was designed for Karina and Laith with the help of the team at Paisley & Paper in Greenville, South Carolina.

2. Slim and sophisticated, couple Susan and John's invitation—designed with the help of Events in Houston—was presented to recipients in a lace-patterned vellum sleeve.

3. For this classic Black Tie wedding invitation ordered at Party Plus Studio in South Hackensack, New Jersey, couple Sarah and Benjamin chose details such as rounded corners and a metallic painted edge.

Real Weddings: Unique Shapes and a Custom Touch Make for an Invitation Suite with Style

When we came across Emily and Bradley’s Vera Wang invitation suite, we knew we had to feature it. Not only does it reflect the oversize paper trend we’re seeing so much of these days, but it also shows how a delightful custom detail (in this case, a round save the date featuring a hand-drawn map) can be incorporated to add the perfect amount of whimsy. 

With the help of Paula Brown of Paula Brown Shop and a graphic designer friend, the couple was able to create their perfect wedding stationery look. Here, they talk about pairing grandness with simplicity and trusting the stationer’s taste.
