Hi there everyone at Brooklyn Bride, it’s good to be back. My inspiration this week is a Forest Fairytale kind of wedding. One of our Urbanic brides recently shared some photos with me of her wedding day and I was charmed by her use of woodland silhouettes for the table numbers and escort cards. Since I’ve been craving being outdoors in the woods lately, this was a good post to put together and vicariously live it out through!

We recently brought on a new calligrapher at Urbanic that I’m pretty excited about. Her name is Molly Thorpe (such a great name right?) and her line is called Plurabelle. I’m loving her artsy cool vintage style. This is definitely the type of mail that’s jaw dropping even for the postal workers I’m sure!
I have a few more pictures of Molly’s work up on Parcel Post. … and by the way, we also now have a fun new vintage postage stamping service that I can’t wait to tell you about. Until next time…. *A
Hi everyone at Brooklyn Bride, hope your summer is off to a great start! I myself have been daydreaming of a vacation lately, so I’m feeling kind of “mappy”.

Hey there Brooklyn Briders! It’s good to be back. In continuing the theme of my last post here, I wanted to highlight a few more invitation sets I discovered at the National Stationery Show. I often have couples sit down for an appointment In the bridal lounge at Urbanic and say to me, “We really want something special and unique and please, NO FLOWERS”. I thought the below two collections from Saima Says were nice alternatives…

As some of you might already know, I’ve been very busy over the last couple of days putting together a recap of the 2010 National Stationery Show on Parcel Post. While at the show I was happy to discover some new wedding invitations I hadn’t seen before. First up is Gilah a letterpress line out of Baltimore. We carry the card line in the shop currently so I was glad to see her clean, modern aesthetic in the form of invitations.
Next is 42 Pressed. I’m loving the creative typography, the quirky fanciness and use of those fabric belly bands.
