Wedding prep: Invitations

I have so many new fun wedding items to post, including our stationary from Seaborn Press.

When I’m telling you I spent months looking at wedding invitations I’m not joking. Believe it or not, it’s really difficult to find a timeless, totally unique design that suited my and Evan’s personality best. I scoured Minted, Wedding Paper Divas, Etsy, independent artists, printing shops, all over! I was starting to lose hope when I came across the simple, yet classic and sophisticated designs from Seaborn.

Seaborn Press is a small printing shop in Brooklyn who specializes in letterpress stationary and invitations. I fell in love with the Vasa design, seen here.

This sweet typewriter design is really what helped guide me into a subtle theme for our wedding, typewriters and the 1920’s. I mentioned in my wedding prep post on our centerpieces that I found these darling mini typewriters to hold our table numbers, place cards, and eventually Polaroid prints of our guests as a wedding favor. Really, these invitations were the inspiration for it all.

And here’s how our save the date turned out! I love the little geometric triangles on either side of our initials.

And here’s an example of what our future invitation will look like, our wedding date is still many months away–although it will be here before we know it!

So there it is, the story behind our invitations and the true inspiration for our wedding theme. What do you think of Seaborn Press? Iโ€™m already plotting out which set to buy as our Mr. and Mrs. note cards. ๐Ÿ™‚
