Hi friends at Brooklyn Bride! I am back this week with inspiration in kraft and white. Over here at Urbanic one of our brides just left with this invitation set. When her suite arrived it was absolutely stunning and I found myself thinking of all the creative things she could do with her reception pieces. How cute would it be to have your escort cards be written out on a string of hanging awards! These little pencils would be the perfect accompaniment to a cork guest book. Garlands and decoration possibilities are endless as these papers are so accessible – not to mention recycled!

If you are having a wedding on the beach, a new direction would be to go modern with it! We have all seen the shells, seahorses and palm tress, but why not mix it up with some sunsets, seagulls, and ocean waves? I am really excited about the first picture below. We are working with a bride right now at Urbanic who is doing a Venice Beach themed wedding. The picture is the back of her RSVP postcard. One of our amazing designers Emily, put together a collage of actual photos taken in Venice to capture the look and feel of the location. She nailed it! You can brighten up any venue with garlands, place mats and favors. Instead of candy you could give guests something they can keep or use during their stay, like a beach journal. Below are two of my favorite invitations currently in the shop. As you can see, you can really go stylish and modern but still capture the essence of a coastal destination.
