I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Laser cut wedding invitations feature the most extravagant and detailed designs that you can’t get from standard printing. We are totally in love with the intricate designs that we’ve spied from Invitations by Dawn (which, of course, you can easily customize online with color, font, and wording!). So dang unique, right?

One of our favorite parts about weekends is following our friends’ wedding hashtags on Instagram. Sounds crazy, but it’s so fun to see everything leading up to the events of the big day, and then finally all the highlights captured by wedding guests on the big day! We really love the idea of sharing your custom “wedding hashtag” with guests. Wedding Paper Divas has helped put together for us some perfect “Social Media Tips” for how to communicate with guests your social media preferences. To share or not to share? Here are some ways to beautifully get the message across!

1. Include a mini enclosure card with your invitation to share a hashtag or wedding website you would like your guests to post to. (Or better yet…communicate your wedding hashtag early by including it in your save-the-dates. Family and friends can follow along with your planning process!)

2. Create a special section on your wedding website to provide guests with your social wishes for the big day.

Shot in downtown Milwaukee, this shoot combines the romance of organic elements, with the architecture and masculinity of the city. Very special thanks to Kate Weinstein Photo for such beautiful images. Don’t you adore the invites and calligraphy, by Layers of Loveliness and that simple, organic cake by A Splendid Occasion?

You guys. Get ready. Because we are transporting you to absolute paper heaven today! Designer Alisa Bobzien just became a member of our Grey Collective and we are beyond honored because dang, this girl’s got style. She’s officially on our pin board, and we know you’ll love her as much as we do. Just imagine sending out something as pretty as these two paper suites to all your wedding guests. Le sigh. Yes, please.

We chatted with Alisa and learned about the best part of her offerings: “I’m thrilled to be able to offer clients this new online collection,” she said. “It was born out of my desire to provide highly personalized wedding stationery that offers the flexibility of custom design while allowing clients to sidestep the overwhelming number of decisions and expense required by the custom design process.”

These lovelies are customizable, easy to order, and absolute gorg. Win-win, no?

Anticipate Invitations is one of our newest Grey Collective members, and one of the reasons we chose them is their unique approach to stationery. First off, in order to keep things as custom as possible without sacrificing your wallet is limiting their designs to just 25 purchases before they are discontinued! So each invite is a limited edition, which makes it much more exclusive. You won’t have to worry about picking the same stationery as someone else!

In addition to that, Anticipate Invitations donates a portion of the proceeds to love146, a charity dedicated to ending child-trafficking and exploitation. With a company that is so design savvy AND passionate about giving back, how could we not adore them?
