wedding stationery by turquoise feathers

i've got a handful of friends getting married in the next year, so i'll have a bit more wedding stationery on the blog from now on. it's so fun to check out the gorgeous new wedding designs popping up these days -- so cheery and colorful and WAY better than the options i found (in pre-pinterest days ;) when planning my own wedding 7 years ago.

today we're spotlighting the amazing work from the turquoise feathers studio. (awesome company name, right?! i was intrigued right away!) here's a behind-the-scenes peek at three of their most popular wedding (and bridal shower) designs, thanks to creator and designer jenny tod. such cool details are included in each one -- good ideas for anyone planning a wedding.

from jenny: This watercolor invitation suite was created for a styled wedding workshop by the lovely Jessica Limeberry of Lemongrass Photography.  My initial inspiration for the set was the color palette of spring and a rustic outdoor location. I knew I wanted to create something that would bring contrast to the neutrals and rustic tones of the outdoors, and that was also bright and cheerful to mimic the feel of the vibrant sunflowers adorning the cake. The design, typography, and graphics were all created by hand and each invitation was paired with a neutral brown kraft envelope. Each menu features a fun paint-by-numbers to be completed by the guests at the event and the place cards double as their paint brushes.





from jenny: Blair + Danny's accordion style wedding invitations were designed to match their vintage, DIY style wedding. My initial inspiration came from vintage fabrics and jewelry. I wanted to incorporate the textures and tactile characteristics of vintage, so I designed the muslin bags to house all of the paper suite's components, printed on a heavy pearlescent paper in eggplant and granny apple green, and finished off the programs with a lace doily and heavy twine. The shapes and graphics were inspired by old script typography and each bag was hand stamped with a custom wedding date design and monogram.  The perforated RSVP allowed the guests a fun way to detach their response card and send it back to the bride and groom.






from jenny: The recipe for a good marriage is lots of love and forgiveness! These granny apple green and fushia bridal shower invitations with coordinating recipe card were designed for a cooking themed bridal shower. The brides wedding was equal parts vintage, romantic, and creative and so that's what we designed for! Both pieces feature hand drawn typography and illustrations, and the XOXO pattern adorning the top and bottom is a fun and unexpected detail. The recipe card allows guests to pass along their favorite recipes to the bride for a great tasting first year of marriage.
