Wood Grain Papers Are Hot!

The rustic, vintage wedding style is wildly popular right now and this wood grain paper style is the perfect way to capture that look in your invitations. Since we started carrying invitations with this faux bois look, our clients can't seem to get enough!

Two of my favorite invitations featuring this unique textured paper come from the Southall Eden collection. I love the way designer Shannon O'Kelley blends fun, whimsical graphic elements with vintage fonts in custom colors that match each brides wedding style. The style featured above was designed for one of our couples who love to cycle together. Using their color scheme of warm autumn oranges and browns and love for all things vintage, we came up with this great look which perfectly reflects the couples' personality and wedding style.

This style is just perfect for a slightly more formal garden affair. I liked it so much, I used it for our Grand Re-Opening last year at CJ's Off the Square. It was the perfect way to set the tone for an evening event in the garden. And out of all of the invitations that we send each year, this one received the most compliments from our guests by far.

To view the complete Southall Eden invitation collection or other styles featuring this fantastic wood grain paper, give us a call at 615-465-8099. We would love to help you find the perfect way to incorporate unique paper style into all of your wedding details! --CJ
