The "White" Wedding Invitation - Revised.

My Creative Wedding gets a lot of people who comment on how bad invitations used to look. "Just white invitations with no color and plain. Just blah." White invitations aren't so bad. There are so many different shades and textures of white. It can look just as fabulous as green and pink! Here's one white wedding invitation for Johanah. White metallic paper mixed with a variety of textures. From white lace to white canvas paper! Thermography printed with not black ink, but dark mahogany to match her black (really really dark red) roses.

Invitation Boxes!

A few weeks ago we delivered wedding invitations that were absolutely gorgeous!
A square pocket fold invitation tied by a double faced satin ribbon and presented with a label. The wedding invitation opens up to reveal the invitation backed by the same stock of the box and three inserts which included an RSVP postcard. The boxes were handmade from 160lb double thick stock mahogany cover.
And finished off by custom printed address label bands that were in the same green metallic stock of the pocket folds. Couldn't let this one go without taking a few pictures!

Are you interested in purchasing boxes in any size??? Please email PAPER CREW in Long Beach, California at

We LOVE the Great Bridal Expo!

My Creative Wedding has a soft spot for the Great Bridal Expo. We have been vendors at these wedding conventions since 2005! Our last show at the Anaheim Convention Center and the Los Angeles Westin Bonaventure was a huge success! We met so many enthusiastic bride and grooms that can't wait to get there creative juices flowing and start the invitation process with us! We've got so many requests to put up some pictures of our boards that we showcase at the shows. So here you go:

And the one that caught everyone's eye was our new Paris Invitation! (This one is for you Amihan!) This sample was made to display a destination wedding look...that will be taking place right at home. Great for a themed wedding!

Matching triangle tent placecards adds flavor and details!

We're finishing up on all the fall brides for 2008! Can't wait to blog all the others!
