From: Fall/Winter 2015 edition

1. Modern Glam (top left)
Perfectly paired hues, standout fonts and geometric elements are at the heart of this colorful suite by Mint for Hue. Taking the couple’s wedding décor into consideration (think cascading eucalyptus centerpieces, gilded chargers, geometric centerpieces and succulent favors), designer Juliann Ford adorned this wedding stationery with branch motifs surrounding modern typefaces and clean lines. Layers of deep purples, soft pinks, dusty greens and gold accents create a perfect eclectic fusion. Mint for Hue, Chippewa Falls, 715.533.0136

2.  Hometown Pride (top right)
Inspired by vintage “Wish you were here” postcards of the Milwaukee skyline, Jessica Clark of Clark Creative designed an invitation suite that’s both quirky and classic, perfect for introducing out-of-town guests to the city’s charm. Vintage map envelope liners add another special hometown touch, while bright fonts set against a graphic skyline make the paperwork pop. This invitation suite is perfect for any couple who loves Milwaukee and is proud to call it their home. Clark Creative, Waukesha, 262.308.7609

3. Tradition with a Twist (bottom left)
Before she sat down to work, Andra Delores of Andra Delores Design knew exactly what she wanted for her own wedding invitations: something traditional, but with a twist that would leave people talking. She began by designing a custom crest with monogram, which was then incorporated into her overall wedding theme. It’s the small details that make this suite sing, like the seal that encloses the pocket-fold invitation and the soft, monochromatic palette—all providing a sought-after level of sophistication. Andra Delores Design, Eau Claire, 262.751.9501

4. Glitterati (bottom right)
With so much pizzazz, this suite is not for the timid. Debbie Pape of Paper Envy created an invitation ensemble that was fun and glamorous, to mirror the couple’s wedding theme, so she paired gold foil dots and a glittering envelope liner with an elaborate script font, and black and gold thermographic printing. The result? A suite that’s the epitome of style. Pape also paid homage to the bride’s hometown by tying it all together with a tag featuring the silhouette of Wisconsin, which reads “See you in Milwaukee.” Paper Envy, Elm Grove, 262.780.0850
