invitations: mailed!


J and I had a great long weekend in Mexico for a very special wedding (more on this later this week). We are happy to be home, jumping on the remaining items on our wedding To Do list. A highlight? Mailing our wedding invitations this morning!

Even tho we know who is coming to our tiny wedding, I had such fun shopping for the perfect destination wedding invitation anyway. We selected Bella Figura, a letterpress shop based in Syracuse, New York (where I went to college)! I am very happy with the amazing quality of the paper and letterpress.

Melanie of A Fine Letter in Illinois addressed the envelopes with astonishing one-day turn around! Her beautiful penmanship and fantastic quality service make it easy to recommend Melanie time and time again as I have over the years since first learning of her when I lived in Washington, DC.

So as to not spoil the surprise of what the invitation looks like for our guests, I'll post the envelope today and just a sneak peek at the invitation (and the beautiful bronze envelope liner).


  1. These look fantastic! Can't believe it's almost here!

  2. oh em! These Are beautiful!!! Love love love, and can't wait to see more!

  3. these are gorgeous. I really wish I had done letterpress for our invitations (especially considering our 1940s theme) but I had to cut costs somewhere so I hand cut 120 invitations with an exact-o knife but letterpress would've been more elegant and LESS TIME. It took forever. I also hand lettered our invites in an art deco font I created. AGAIN. TOOK forever. Impressive with the 1 day turn-around.
