Really Cool Wedding Invitations from PostScript Brooklyn…

If you’re like me and you love simple beautiful designs with personalized touches…  oh, and of course just about anything letter-pressed, then you will love the Post Script Brooklyn Wedding Invitation Company.  They feature a bunch of sophisticated, urban and really fun designs by local artists but my favorite thing about these invites, is that they’re completely customizable.

Just to give you a little idea of what you will find at the PS Brooklyn sitecheck out these Wedding Invitation suites for some inspiration: PS>> click on the photos to enlarge, its hard to see the details at a distance…

For the Hawaii Eco-Friendly bride or the Rustic Bride check out the Ramble Suite (shown above).  Loving this super simple deer couple, and woodsy creatures topped off with a bunches of mushrooms!  This wedding invitation collection is from Jane Buck and can be found here.  We think its the perfect invitation for any outdoorsy or nature-loving couple and is shown here on cotton paper with white envelopes, digitally printed in moss and pewter inks. PS>> Pewter is totally the new Wedding Color for 2012 – I can’t tell you how many brides I’ve spoken with lately who are loving pewter… and I don’t blame them! A gorgeous purple greyish shade of pewter could pair up with just about any color to make any Hawaii Wedding shine!

Loving the personalized touches especially the printed envelopes – Which btw, if you order NOW – you can get a super discount on by adding in a special Ruffled discount code.

Inspiration Tuesdays: Rustic Weddings

Rustic Weddings are so chic these days! We have had so many brides say they wanted their wedding to be “rustic” we just couldn’t help but share this gorgeous wedding featured in one of our favorite blogs Ruffled.

If you’re a DIY bride, you’re boing to love this wedding, it was a true labor of love by the bride – Camryn, her husband – Brian, and their friends. Nearly every detail was executed as a DIY project inspired by blogs like Ruffled. We’re absolutely LOVING all the details that went into this wedding and the personalization is out of this world! The bridal party even used an actual school bus as their transportation, in a fitting nod to the couple’s respective careers as school teachers!

Nicole & Kenji 11.11.11

On November 11th, 2011, Nicole & Kenji tied the knot in a simple beach house surrounded by their closest family and friends on the east side of Oahu. The day was highly emotional and filled to the brim with love, tears, laughter and joy. The day started off at Nicole’s house in Manoa where all of her girlfriends gathered for pupus and wine and got ready together. The girls took tons of photos and then headed into the limo for the long drive over to the other side of the island. It was almost a fiasco when they realized before even getting onto the Pali that there was no more champagne, but luckily shortly after, one of the girls discovered a secret compartment in the 1980’s limo that held the champagne stash. The entire limo gasped and started cheering.

Upon arrival, Erika, the wedding planner, instructed the girls on where to go and lead Nicole to her room where she was to wait for the ceremony to start. When it was time they headed towards the ceremony area where the flower girls and ring bearers started the long walk down to the ceremony area. Nic and her dad followed shortly after.

This was much more than the couples wedding day. 11.11.11 was something that the couple saw as their lucky number. They kissed every time they caught 11:11 on the clock and celebrated every 11th day of each month as they officially got together on Nov. 11th three years prior. Also, today – Nov. 11, 2011 – was Kenji, the grooms 31st birthday!

Joined by 120 of their closest friends and family, it was surely an event to remember. Filled with dancing, a full old fashioned candy bar, tears and heart-felt toasts, crazy bouquet tosses, a surprise bridal hula for her groom, and even a flash mob. There is no question 11.11.11 was Nicole & Kenji’s best day ever!

The bride had been practicing for months a surprise hula for her groom, choreographed by Kelehua Kauai to live music performed by the amazing – Mike Love! Look at the look on his face! Priceless.

Best Day Ever helped the bride create over 100 face masks of the groom which were hidden under all the guest tables. A surprise birthday cake for the groom came out right after the couple cut their wedding cake and all the guests sang “Happy Birthday” with their “Kenji faces” on. The look on his face.. was priceless.

The bride choreographed a 7 minute flash mob dance that started after the father daughter dance. She sent out a youtube video complete with instructions for all the guests to learn the special dance unsure of who would really participate. To her surprise, nearly all the guests were up on the dance floor getting down with all the choreographed moves. It was really amazing to watch. The groom was the only one who was out of the loop. Needless to say – he had a huge smile on his face the whole time – in awe of what was happening around him.
