A custom illustration of a cute bride-to-be that we created invitations from. The perfect personal touch to what can be a bit repetitive bridal world.

We're thrilled to start a new series called What to Wear (Wednesday). What to wear, for instance, to your 10 year high school reunion? You want to look good but not like you're trying too hard. What to wear to a black tie wedding in the middle of summer? We're going to start covering it all... Let's start with what to wear to your bridal shower... There is sure to be more than one, and you most likely want to wear white to at least one of them, because why not? You are the bride... this is all about you. The good news is in the summer there are a plethora of white dress options at your fingertips. We're all very familiar with the trends of the season (bell sleeves, ruffles, layered silks). Choose a dress that is seasonally appropriate and not too trendy (you don't want to look back at the pictures and have a major eye roll moment). We picked four white dresses below that are worth considering. They're all classically elegant and are sure to wow.
This is your moment. Own it. Wear white as much as you want. And don't
forget to send your thank-you notes as soon as possible (see our bridal
notecards here, and add a personal touch by adding "Thank You from the
Future Mrs." to the top under personalization).

An "I Do BBQ" is an easy and festive couple's shower theme, one that you can dress up or down. On the casual side, think red & white linens, backyard games like giant Jenga and corn hole, mason jars, etc. For a dressier approach, use southern-inspired displays like mason jars, but fill them with a more formal bouquet as opposed to sunflowers. Whichever approach you take, it's sure to be a hit! Be sure to pick up these themed wet wipes for a more personal touch (if ribs are served, consider them a must).
I was thrilled to create a custom invitation for a dear friend for her "I Do BBQ".

Because you need more than one bridal shower, right?
This was a fun project to work on for a DC-based bride that lives a stones-throw away from the Capitol and works on the Hill. She's wearing her something blue for her bridal shower and carrying her favorite handbag while posing in front of her centrally located townhouse.
Best wishes to this bride who's wedding day is quickly approaching!

Sometimes, I have the privilege of illustrating people I know. When that happens, it takes longer, but it's fun bringing their personalities to life through an illustration. This was for a family friend who was recently married in Nashville. Every detail was planned and executed perfectly. I loved working with her family on this one as a special surprise for her!

Straight out of the archives, this is an oldie but a goodie. A custom bridesmaids luncheon invitation to celebrate before the big day!

Reviving an older illustration that was originally created for my sister-in-law. It seemed to fit the mold perfectly for this couple, too!

Designing bridal invitations for two of your high school friends in the same month definitely makes me feel old (and nostalgic), but I was thrilled to be a part of the process! Congrats to these two!

A custom bridal illustration that we ended up using as an invitation, too.
