Beautiful Damask Themed Wedding in Temecula, California

Christine and Stefan were married in a beautiful vineyard in Temecula, California. Their Damask Themed wedding fit right in. Accents of a magical anthracite blue completed her look. Photography by Diana M. Lott Photography

My Creative Wedding makes custom designed damask signs to help direct their guests.

Loving the details on the napkins and how perfect the damask menus looked tucked in them. The pillow favor boxes with metallic damask labels were just the icing on the cake!
My Creative Wedding was also able to do hotel welcome gable boxes and water bottle labels and so much more. Hopefully more pictures to come!

Fall Brown & Olive Damask Wedding

I'm so excited to share these photos of my beautiful client Sarah, who married Glenn on September 19, 2009 in Washington D.C. at the Galleria at Lafayette Center.
Her chocolate brown damask and olive accents went so well at the venue.
Sarah and Glenn celebrated a traditional Nigerian ceremony as well. Absolutely love all the garment colors. Just beautiful.
The Galleria at Lafayette Center is such a grand venue and the decor was beautiful done by BCG Events and obviously beautifully captured by Dotun's Photography and Georgetown Pics.

Eiffel Tower Paris Invitations and Custom Tiffany & Co. favor bags!

With what I call the "standard" wedding color, Tiffany Blue, this Eiffel Tower, Paris inspired invitation is simple yet unique. Our bride used this set for the couple's wedding shower invitation, however it's been quite popular for the actual wedding invitation itself.
To top it off, Paper Crew also custom made Tiffany & Co. inspired favor bags. Imagine the look on your guests' face receiving this bag as a favor! Our bags are high quality tiffany blue matte, sent through the press with your names to be. What a wonderful addition to keep the theme real.

Cymbidium Orchid Invitations in the flesh!

I know that there is so much hype about letterpress. But when you take a look, and feel the orchids popping out of the paper it's hard not to be impressed. The thermography printed orchids look as though it was freshly painted on.
Our Cymbidium Orchid Invitation Set was featured on a previous post. To see the difference between our illustration and the real deal view our previous post here.
Custom maps are always a nice detail.
This invitation was done in Vietnamese and English. It's always a sigh of relief when you find out that your stationer can do multiple languages. If you can't find anyone to accommodate you, let us know...we can do it!
Just like all our other invitations, this orchid can be customized into any color to match your color scheme. Contact My Creative Wedding for a quote by emailing info@mycreativewedding.com

It was a gorgeous wedding. The blushing bride was ohhhh and ahhhh at as she walked down the aisle at Park Privé in Costa Mesa. The Rhinestone Buckle Invitation was enclosed in a custom pocket folder with double metallic paper layers. Coral satin ribbon was fed through a gold rhinestone buckle to complete the look. Gold leaf Thermograhy printed with a custom floral design was echoed throughout all the wedding stationary. Everything was beautifully put together.
My Creative Wedding carries over 25 different types of buckles for invitations. If interested email us for a quote.

Destination Wedding Welcome Boxes

I just received this picture from my wonderful bride, Claudette who is getting married in Maui, Hawaii this weekend! Claudette ordered My Creative Wedding Welcome Boxes that came with custom box, water bottle labels and welcome card. All coordinating with the original design of her destination wedding invitations shown in our previous blog entry I can't wait to see the favor packaging, programs and rehearsal stationary!!!

One of my favorite clients is getting married in Hawaii. Her unique style comes out with all her different requests for stationary and so of course we make a good pair! My Creative Wedding has really customized her stationary to every portion of her wedding.
From bridal shower invitations and favors to Rehearsal reminders...we've done it all for her. And we are eager to share them with you in a future blog.
Her invitation scrolls were rolled in cut bamboo poles and tied with satin lagoon ribbon. The island of Hawaii shows in the background as a watermark on the scroll. All the destination information was in book form with a tear out response postcard. All of this was added in the box that the invitations were packaged in and sealed with a metallic address band. Perfect package for her guests to receive for a destination wedding.

Our website is temporarily being worked on...so DON'T BE ALARMED! We are making improvements and have great things lined up for the future. So stay tuned.

Old Hollywood Glam

Last month we had a booth setup at Lifetime's Wedding Couture show. I of course forgot my camera. These picture were taken via iPhone, so excuse the blurriness. My Creative Wedding did all the stationary for the tables, to include menus, table numbers, place cards and signs. One of our favorite tables on show was the "Old Hollywood Glam" table. With all the rhinestone work and black and white theme. It was such a beautiful table.

The Cymbidium Orchid Wedding Invitation Set

It doesn't stop at the orchid invitation. You got to have the orchid menus, the orchid table numbers, the orchid place cards, the orchid program fans, orchid water bottle labels, orchid CD favors, it's endless! Even though it seems like design overload, by making your theme consistent throughout your event, you set the tone of your wedding, and it will actually look like you put some thought into it!
The Cymbidium Orchid is commonly used in weddings. The delicate petals and exotic colors add appeal to this flower. So if you are using this flower in your wedding, consider it for your stationary! This design was originally created for friends of ours that got married in 2007. She simply gave us a picture that she took from the internet: Then I designed her invitations around that picture. You might have seen this design in previous blogs. The original invitation was printed flat on a 4-color printer on top of white canvas paper to bring out the Cymbidium design. I was never able to do this same design in thermography or letterpress until now. The new design is now a 3-color design and will be printed in thermography. There is a 2-color version for those who would like to splurge for letterpress. Don't forget to complete the look with all the other details. Below shows it displayed in our exclusive Paper Crew A7 pocket-folder in a matte fudge chocolate. Our folders come in any color. You pick the paper from over 3000 swatches! The envelope features our unique "Over the top" Invitation Address Labels, shown here on metallic paper, consistent with the paper used for the invitation. This label wraps over the top of the envelope (hence the name) and includes your return address as well as your guests' names and address. I simply give you an excel spreadsheet to follow. You fill it out and email it back to me. Your envelopes will come addressed using the same fonts and design as your invitation! This is definitely worth the money AND TIME!
(click on the picture for a larger view)

We have a reception set that includes: menus, table numbers and escort cards or place cards. The reception set is a great add on to any invitation order. You will be surprised to see that you can add these details for less than you thought. I know that below is a cheesy Photoshop picture of our menu on a place setting. But imagine what this would look like without it! Did you spend all that photography money to show nothing but white linen?! Jazz up your tables with a little design. Your white tables and photographer will thank you for it!The escort cards/place cards are also printed with your guests' names and table number, even entée. There is another excel format that I have you follow that will merge to all the cards. Another time saver if you were planning on writing them yourself, or even better another money saver if you were planning on spending the average $1.00 each for caligraphy!

Don't forget about that ceremony program. The boring letter half programs just don't cut it anymore! Do you have a flower that you'd like to make program fans out of? Shown below is an orchid program fan. Back side shows the coordinating orchid design and the front is the program information. Spruced up with different coordinating ribbon. Now tell me if your guests will throw this away? I think not!
By now you just can't stop yourself. You want EVERYTHING to coordinate! Offer your guests water bottles with your custom Cymbidium orchid design. They'll be so overwhelmed that you thought of something so small and praise you for your attention to detail. Believe it or not...water bottle labels start at $0.35 each. That's right folks...add that to your order while you're at it!So your guests get the awesome invitation, then go to the wedding and fight over the flower program fans, then take a sip of water from the water bottles with your custom labels, they go to your reception and see their name on the coordinating escort card, find the table with the matching table numbers, go to their seat with the matching menu...by this time they are believers that you do this for a living. Of course the favors would match! The CD comes in a fudge chocolate pocket with a cute little saying on the paper band. The CD itself matches the theme...yet again. Add your song list to the back of the pocket or even on the CD! Do what you want...that's what we're here for! Tweak it to the left, make it green, add more flowers, take some out. It's all up to you!
As a bride, when you are ready to order your invitations, think of it as ordering your entire stationary set. Getting all of your printing done by one vendor (US!!!) will insure the consistency you want in your wedding and reception.
