I got really excited when Joel sent me photos from the wedding that will be coming up later today…I just wanted to give you a taste of what to expect via the invitation suite….PLEASE tell me you can see those cute little feet letterpressed on the invites and programs. And maybe you’re noticing its not tied with ribbon, but with a shoelace…its all about the details! Stay tuned, this wedding is up at 1pm.

The ladies of Mélangerie sent me this wonderfully modern beach invite and program they designed for a couple getting married in St. Maarten (umm, jealous??) I love how they captured the essence of a beach wedding without going overboard.
LANA & STEVE’S BEACH WEDDING PAPERIE
Lana & Steve were married on a beach in St. Maarten during the Spring of 2009. Their invitation was inspired by the sea, but also reflected the couple’s modern taste and the formality of their wedding ceremony. Each wedding event is indicated on a separate card joined together by a coordinating band. When assembled, Lana & Steve’s invitation references the ocean’s tide.
We also created programs fashioned as fans, a sea shell inspired guest book, and wavy, calligraphic escort cards & table numbers to accent the day’s festivities.

There are so many stationery companies out there today, but Bella Figura is really one of my favorites…I love what the company stands for, and how they really embrace new designers. Soooo, I was super happy when they wanted to host a contest here on Brooklyn Bride. One reader will be winning a $100 certificate for anything on the Bella Figura site…it could be invitations, coasters, save the dates, you name it! Just hop over to their site, pick your favorite design, and leave it in the comments below. The winner will be announced on Friday. Good luck!
[Dewdrop, above, is definitely my favorite, but maybe I’m biased since its inspired by Brooklyn Bride ]
