Lavender Wedding Inspiration

Lavender Wedding Inspiration via DelphineWe’re not sure if seeing the color lavender and the association our brains make with the smell of it or the soft purplish hues themselves are what create such a delectable, romantic aura. Either way, we’re smitten by the classic elegance found in one of nature’s most rare, but absolutely stunning pigments.

Delphine featured in Exquisite Weddings June July 2013

Delphine featured Exquisite Weddings San Diego Summer 2013It’s pretty obvious around here what my favorite color is (green, of course). My least favorite color of all time? Yep, purple. I went through a “purple is my favorite color” phase back in fourth grade (I had a purple Izod shirt that I wore out), but I grew out of it in fifth grade and never looked back. The one shade of purple that doesn’t make me gag? Lavender. We recently letterpressed one of my favorite wedding invitation designs, Chevron, in pale purple and it made my stomach flutter … in a good way.

Copasetic | Font Geek

Copasetic Free Font via DelphineThe entire Delphine studio is crazy excited for the new Great Gatsby film. It’s Brelyn’s favorite book, and one of mine, too. I just re read it, and now I see optometrist signs everywhere.

Needless to say, in anticipation of the movie we’re getting serious 1920s fever and are designing up a whole slew of 20s themed wedding invitations. One of the fonts we’re using a bunch is Copasetic. The Art Deco style works great for our 20s style invitations. The font is free, by the way. You’re welcome ; )

Popular Wedding Invitation Design

Delphine Amelie Ava Letterpress Wedding Invitation designOur signature Ava design (a variation of our Amelie) is hands down our most ordered design. Here are three variations of the same design shipping out on the same day. Changing the ink colors totally changes the feeling, doesn’t it? I imagine the left one for a garden party, the center one for a fun bash, and the one on the right for a black tie ball.
