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

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?

You know we absolutely hate to sacrifice style when it comes pretty much anything, but what is a gal to do when she’s got a budget that just can’t fit it all in (because who does, really?). We’ve recently been introduced to Ann’s Bridal Bargain, where they offer quality stationery at brag-worthy prices! While their selections are totally easy on the wallet, you would absolutely never know, based on their quality of designs, printing, and paper. Customers are always surprised by how well their paper quality and print quality compares to today’s top wedding invitation retailers. They even offer free samples so you can see before you purchase!

Ann’s Bridal Bargains is passionate about staying up-to-date the latest trends in weddings. Their most popular style this season, hands-down, is “Vintage” and they feature some amazing options! There are so many ways to make the Vintage style fit your taste. With designs that include delicate lace details (choose a wood grain combo for a rustic feel), chalkboard for a vintage, yet modern look, and typography inspired layouts as well! Remember, each design is customizable online! Choose your color and create your own unique wording. You can even add a photo to several designs.



Ann’s Bridal Bargains is not in the business of “good enough” or “just getting by.” They work hard to exceed your expectations by offering quality wedding invitations for an affordable price and providing you with reliable and friendly customer service you can trust. They also understand how easily wedding expenses can add up, and that today’s couples want nothing more than to make their wedding day an expression of who they are. Is it possible to stay on budget and plan a wedding that’s uniquely you? Yes! And they’re dedicated to helping you make that happen.
