So Inviting

Set the tone for your wedding with invitations that reflect you and your groom.

Stationery Studio helped create this special wedding invitation. The metallic foil on aquamarine pearlized cardstock with a starburst monogram was the perfect symbol of happiness for the couple. Stationery Studio, 2910 Toulouse St., 581-7248, stationery-studio.com

This invitation from Scriptura features a custom cipher monogram complete with distinguished custom calligraphy for the couple’s names. The invitation was letterpressed on duplex cotton paper for this New Orleans couple. Scriptura, 5423 Magazine St., 897-1555; 3301 Veterans Blvd., Metairie, 219-1113; scriptura.com


This bride and groom wanted a unique invitation that reflected both their personalities as well as the location of the nuptials at the Rural Life Museum. Dubois Expressions made this come to life.

Margaret Jones at Scriptura has an attention to detail that is unparalleled. This heavy weight, white cotton invitation is engraved in two colors with hand calligraphy for the name and a custom illustration in gold.

One way to make your wedding day special is to hand-draw your invitation. Tanya Henriques Kinnett created the letters engraved in black and gold on Crane's ecru wedding paper. The brides' monogram was also hand drawn and engraved on the cover of the invitation. Betty Hunley Designs, 6057 Magazine St., 895-2870, bettyhunley.com

When a graphic designer gets married, you're sure to have invitations that are truly unique and worth framing. Such was the case for this lovely couple that wanted a Southern wedding - with flair. Dubois Expressions used a letterpress custom design on heavyweight Crane paper. Dubois Expressions, 7341 Jefferson Highway, Suite K, Baton Rouge, (225) 936-5339, duboisexpressions.com


This suite embodies everything joyous about the nuptials of a couple that wants to integrate the South while also enjoying contemporary design features. This particular collection, complete with custom logos (C² and B²), plays off the bride and groom’s own initials and was printed on bright white, uncoated cover stock.
