Non-Traditional Chic

Are you the bride that bucks the trend. That wants to stand out. To be different.  Well for all the fans of Anthropologie {and all those soon-to-be new fans} you'll be ecstatic to hear that Anthropologie is launching its own line of wedding apparel and accessories--- BHLDN.  When?  Well ♥February 14th♥ of course!

From what I have seen and heard, the line is amazing.  From wedding gowns to bridesmaids dresses, and everything in between.  The ultimate in femininity.

Press L for Love

I LOVE letterpress. There's something about it that just makes you feel special, sophisticated, lady-like. All the attributes you {or most people} want your wedding to exude. Which is why I think that letterpress is the perfect choice for wedding invitations.

The invitation is the first impression your guests will have of your big day; so you want to put on your best face. Gone are the days of the formal, classic {read boring} renderings of letterpress. Now you can find a design that fits any wedding type and style -- from classic/formal to wild and unique. 

I recently came across Pistachio Press on-line and fell in love with their designs. Their motifs and font type offerings are wonderfully distinctive. Any of their pre-made designs would make for an instant hit.  

And if you are an environmentally conscious bride, you'll love that Pistachio Press is committed to using environmentally conscious studio practices, such as rubber-based inks and biodegradable citrus-based solvents to clean-up. They print on 100% tree-free cotton papers or on recycled papers that contain at least 30% post-consumer waste. Way to be beautifully green.
