What’s the Deal with Envelope Liners?

What’s the Deal with Envelope Liners?

When most people think of envelope liners, they picture a solid color inside the envelope or maybe even think of an outdated tradition that should be cast aside – but today, envelope liners mean so much more than that! Whether it’s a striking pattern that’s color-coordinated with the wedding invitation suite or a picture of the bride and groom, modern brides take advantage of the additional space that wedding liners provide. They can quickly take a wedding invitation to the next level! What are Envelope Liners? Envelope liners go back to the days when wedding invitations were hand delivered, and were probably used to add a bit of extra protection and privacy to the special contents of the envelope. Basically, envelope liners are a portion of paper or card stock that is cut to fit inside the envelope and fold down with the envelope flap. They are precision cut (usually die-cut) to fit the envelope perfectly and are easy to slip in. They are then attached with some type of adhesive so that they stay in position. When designed correctly, they can be a fun and unique detail that makes your wedding invitations really stand out. Traditionally, envelope liners are used on the inner envelope of the invitation suite. This means that the liner will still be seen if the recipient uses an envelope opener on the outer envelope (or rips it open, as many of us are prone to do). Even if the outer envelope is destroyed, the inner envelope remains intact. When the recipient gets to the inner envelope, they are then far more likely to open...
Coastal Wedding

Coastal Wedding

Lindsay and David Moncavage’s Coast Wedding- 9/9/18 Lindsay and David’s coastal wedding at the Reeds at Shelter Haven this past September was an end-of-summer affair their guests will not forget, from start to finish.  Lindsay and David introduced their guests to the event with an exquisite wedding invitation ensemble from Paper & Posh.  They opted for a large square crystal and lavender invitation, printed with silver glitter thermography. We added an accommodations and details card, as well as a response card, both crystal with silver glitter thermography. The invitation and the insert cards were strategically designed to fit neatly inside a double thick, crystal textured pocket with a lavender stardream backer, which we adorned with white ribbon and a rhinestone buckle. We placed the entire suite in a large handmade crystal envelope, lined with lavender paper.  Loraine Crawford (www.callagraphybycrawford) hand-lettered the envelopes with each guests’ name.  We secured the large envelope flap with a square crystal and lavender stardream layered return address tab.  Lindsay wanted to carry the invitation color scheme through the ceremony and reception, but add a touch of coastal charm.  We coordinated her ceremony program perfectly, with crystal paper, silver thermography, and a hand-tied lavender bow. We also included the anchor on the crystal white place cards and the table numbers. As you can see below, the weather was perfect, and Lindsay’s photographer, EZ Memories, captured every special moment of her seaside wedding at the Reeds and Shelter Haven....

Wedding Invitation Color Palette Trends for 2018

Wedding invitations are a fantastic way to introduce the colors you plan to use for your wedding, serving as a preview for your guests in advance of your big day. And, of course, you’ll be saving copies of your invitation to place in a scrapbook or among your wedding photos. That’s why you don’t want to go with just any color scheme for your invitations—you want it to fit in with the event and represent your taste. Fortunately, there are existing color palette trends that you can use for inspiration when searching for just the right colors to reflect your dream wedding. Green Shades of green reflecting the colors found in nature are extremely trendy. They reflect an organic vibe that expresses new life and adventures associated with the unfolding greens of spring. Greenery also pairs very well with peach, neutral colors, and blushes. One particularly attractive approach with strong feminine overtones is to combine a muted green with a dusty rose color. Lilac and Lavender While these are both shades of purple, the lilac provides a fresh, dynamic burst of color when combined with the dusty lavender shade. These gorgeous shades can be combined with neutral colors for a sophisticated, elegant look. Adding a metallic shade of silver as a highlight can really bring purple hues to life and add a bit of sparkle. Grey and Navy Navy has had a recent resurgence in popularity, with some even referring to navy as the new black. This has been reflected in wedding invitation color palettes trends, and you are likely to see a deep, dark navy combined with a...
