gettin’ Krafty with wedding invitations

You know that paper & cardstock you see everywhere that looks like a brown paper bag? That’s called Kraft, and I am absolutely obsessed with it. It’s nostalgic, rustic and simple, just the way I like things to be. I used Kraft pocket folds for our wedding invitations, and wrapped them up with cute peach string. Angi Phillips of Angelique Ink created the invitation and reply card using a combination of calligraphy and classic bold font. Angi also ended up creating the Mrs. Vintage logo, which I absolutely adore, but that’s another blog for another day! Here are a few of my favorite Kraft creations, including a sneak peek of my own wedding invitations! Enjoy xox

This is a peek at our wedding invitation, full blog post and pics coming soon!

My friend Tricia of P.S. Creative created this gorgeous invitation suite for her wedding. Look at that adorable polka dot envelope liner and floral textile inspired reply card! New Orleans brides, she’s local! Let her create a custom suite for you!

These silhouette invitations and hand drawn programs are too sweet! Via Once Wed

  3. Perfect wedding invitation designs. I have always been in love with vintage-inspired stuff and upon seeing this post, my heart really skipped a beat. I totally adore that “rainy day save the date” invitation you have featured. It’s simple yet classy and modern. Amazing color palette too!

  4. These are all beautiful! I’m quite fond of Kraft paper–it’s inexpensive, utilitarian, and beautiful in its simplicity. The designers you featured are really great at highlighting its elegant qualities!
