Invites and Ribbons: Add Flair to Your Wedding Invitations

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

We recently received a batch of lovely ribbons from Ampelco Ribbon Company, a family-owned company based in Downers Grove, Illinois specializing in creating beautiful, elegant ribbons and trims. We thought it might be fun to pair some of their best ribbons with our own invitation samples to inspire anyone looking to add a little flair to their wedding invitations.

This matte gray envelope promises beauty and delivers just that when its contents reveal photocream-colored heavy weight cotton invitations with gold foil letterpress in an elegant cursive all wrapped up in a belly sleeve of delicate gold glitterweb ribbon. The last detail is what will really blow your guests away and further prove that your wedding is going to be the most elegant of affairs.

After months of agonizing over what your color scheme should be, consider a ribbon in the invitation that further solidifies what you have now chosen to be the most appropriate and note-worthy color scheme of all weddings.

Pictured left is an invitation in royal blue letterpress on white cotton behemoth that could be further expanded to include a light, sea-green blue strip of glitter with a darker, royal blue velvet lining. This breathtaking combination of colors and materials would be a fantastic way to elaborate on your wedding color scheme and give your guests a glimpse into what they should expect from your wedding: style and sophistication.

To be honest, I’m pretty partial to colors gold and purple being paired up. What could be IMG_1651more refined than the primary colors of royalty?  Sunflowers and lilacs, lilies and clematis, daisies and violets; because the two colors are opposite of one another on the color wheel, it makes them complimentary to each other and therefore pleasing to the eye. That’s why this invitation of heavyweight white cotton, grey letterpress and yellow painted edge would be wonderfully paired with this glitterweb purple ribbon.

There are so many options available out there to make your invitation stand out from the rest, so it’s important to consider them all. Just remember, here at Digby & Rose, we can make anything happen.

These blue and gold foil hydrangea wedding invitations were the perfect announcement for a summer wedding in Washington, DC! The hydrangeas were pressed with a blind emboss on thick light blue cotton paper, and the text was shiny beauty with a gold foil stamp. The gold print continued on the reply card and other pieces, making for a fully blue and gold stunner for this DC wedding. Everyone who received this invite knew it would be an elegant affair!

Powder Blue Paper and Gold Foil

How we love that thick 222lb cotton paper is now available in light blue, navy, and gray! It is perfect for the letterpress printing that created the light blue hydrangeas on the invitations. One of the prettiest summer flowers, hydrangeas now come in gold! The matching cards were also done on powder blue paper. This set would look great with a matching gold envelope liner.

Letterpress Confetti Wedding Invitations

These confetti wedding invitations are a fun but elegant way to announce your upcoming wedding! This letterpress print in navy and green is accented by an apple green envelope liner for a great additional pop of color. A traditional script and text font keep this modern invitation looking formal. For this wedding at Meridian House in Washington, DC it was a great way to let everyone know it was going to be fun, but be sure to dress up! The 2 color letterpress print on 110lb cotton paper was paired with a 1 color reply card and invitation card in navy ink.

Linden Leaves Invitations

For this confetti design we used the delicate heart shape of the linden leaf, so if you look closely the confetti is really a splash of tiny hearts! A great subtle way to bring in a heart theme to your invitations without going overboard, especially with great colors of navy and green for a fall wedding.
