We love this bold approach to wedding invitations with our Seagrams design. This design was inspired by the mid century modern Seagrams building in Manhattan, where Erika’s godmother worked for decades. It’s shown here flat printed here in red and gris. Right away guests will know that this isn’t going to be a traditional wedding. Fun and modern are the adjectives that come to mind … it’s killing me to know what the Seagrams bride has in store for her special, stand-out day!Pin It

Etienne is one of our most complex and most stunning invitations. The design was inspired by art nouveau details and elegant Parisian architecture. Letterpressed here in classic art deco colors, dull gold and peacock, the design really comes to life. Dressed up with antique gold envelopes, Etienne wedding invitations are perfect for an elegant black tie or ballroom wedding.Pin It
Using Feast Calligraphy as the feature font on these beautiful wedding invitations was a no brainer. The style seemed to fit just right, especially in the dull gold ink. We letterpressed this stunner, so you can feel the beauty of each letterform with the touch of your finger.Pin It
Our Pacific Beach design is the epitome of spring and summer, no matter the colors. These letterpressed invitations in robin’s egg and peacock show how two hues of the same color can work together beautifully. It keeps the invitations simple and elegant, don’t you think? This couple chose turquoise envelopes for a fun splash of color.Pin It
Our Meeting Street wedding invitations in miami and punch are simple, summery but always elegant. This flat printed invitation is sleek with a touch of flare. The design itself allows many options because it is hard to find a font that doesn’t look good inside it, and there isn’t a color that doesn’t make it look fabulous.Pin It
It’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.Pin It
We’ve processed thousands of wedding invitations here at the Delphine studio. As orders come in we see the same spelling mistakes over and over. When proofreading your wedding invitations keep an eye out for these 13 most commonly misspelled wedding phrases:
1. honour of your presence (traditional) or honor of your presence (formal)
2. Sacrament of Holy Matrimony (capitalize)
3. Nuptial Mass (capitalize)
7. accepts with pleasure
8. declines with regret
9. accommodations (two c’s, two m’s)
11. hors d’oeuvres
12. R.S.V.P. or R.s.v.p. or répondez s’il vous plaît
13. two thousand thirteen; two thousand fourteen (no “and” after thousand)
Our Peony invitation is beautiful in bold colors. Honeysuckle pink is the epitome of summer, and it contrasts perfectly with our dark, marine blue. The punchy pink and navy color combo is a classic but super fun look. Perfect for a fun mid-summer party. One of the best things about flat printing is the ability to flood the background with a bright color.
We love how Tiffany and Taylor adapted our design for their wedding rehearsal dinner party. It’s also a great example of how rehearsal invitations can take a fun departure from the rest of a more formal letterpress wedding invitation suite.Pin It
Often, it’s one or the other when it comes to gold and silver, but our letterpressed Etienne design is the perfect example of how to combine the two metallic inks.
Pacific Beach Bloom is pretty, elegant and fun all wrapped into one simple but stunning, floral design. Spring and summer and the ocean come to mind, hence the very fitting name. These letterpressed wedding invitations, shown in a perfect, bright bubblegum pink and contrasting dull gold, say “come enjoy a romantic day, but don’t forget to be merry!”Pin It
1. Lay the paper out on a table, covering your workspace. You don’t need a lot; just enough to cover the area that a placemat might be.
2. Open the flap of your envelope so that it lies flat on your papered work area on the table.
3. Insert a liner.
5. Holding the liner in place, carefully flip the envelope over, and place on the table. Try not to move the envelope too much, to keep the liner from shifting out of position.
6. Lift the envelope flap, exposing the back of the liner.
7. Apply glue to the liner with your glue stick. Make sure to wipe up any glue that gets on the white paper in your work area, or replace the paper as needed, so that you do not get glue on the front of your envelopes.
9. Store lined envelopes laying flat, with the flap remaining open. Let glue dry. Do not close the flap until you are ready to seal the envelope.Pin It
Emerald’s elegance and romance are forever entangled. The beautiful gemstone is said to be the sacred stone of the goddess Venus, and that its divine powers help to sustain and preserve love. It’s no wonder this exquisite color, Pantone’s color of the year for 2013 (and a Delphine perennial favorite), is the foundation of some of this year’s most fabulously chic weddings. It’s a color as old as time, direct from the wonders of nature, so no worries about emerald green being a passing trend! It’s a timeless, classic color, perfect for weddings. When Pantone named it color of the year for 2013 Erika clapped out loud!

Sometimes a color combo and a design are just meant to be. J’adore our Rose wedding invitation letterpressed in pretty mai tai pink and black ink. The combo is romantic, retro, and oh so pretty.

Swirls is the perfect combination of fun and elegance, then you add the letterpress and it is altogether beautiful. Airy is the word that comes to mind when I see this light, linear design and when used with the colors apricot and robin’s egg what a better invitation for that pretty little seaside wedding.Pin It
Today is John and my 14th wedding anniversary! To celebrate we’re offering 14 percent off our Meeting Street design — it was inspired by the street where we were married right here in Charleston, South Carolina. It feels great to be back in the city that we love on this special day. Cheers to love! xoxo, Erika.Pin It
