My friend Lauren sent me this cool idea from Design*Sponge to go with our blackberry season wedding. We are designing our invitations, and my sister is hand letterpressing them all (hooray sister!), and we are thinking of using dark blue ink on cream paper. Lauren’s excellent suggestion is that we use dark blue envelopes, and custom stamp the back. I love it! David and I are discussing what we should stamp, and our ideas currently include: the skyline of San Francisco, a blackberry vine motif, or some other motif that would go with the natural setting of or venue. Additionally, I’m fascinated that you can now order custom rubber stamps!
** I must note. Miss Manners says: “Do not worry about whether the postage stamp on your invitations carries out the color scheme of your wedding. Nobody cares.” I am aware this falls into the same catagory. But it’s fun for us.
