visual + sparkle = color

Feb 7, 2013   //   by lizzybloves   //   Color Palettes  //  No Comments

I’m starting a new Wedding Invitation project with Mexican and Moroccan influences (FABULOUS!! right?), and to get my creative spark flowing I came up with this visual + sparkle = color inspired by the future Bride’s chosen colors: light Tiffany blue and gold. This cake pretty much sums the color palette up, so soft, yet elegant with the touches of gold.

I’ll keep you posted on the process!

a glimpse at a mexican fiesta

Feb 6, 2013   //   by lizzybloves   //   Lizzy B ~ Elsewhere  //  1 Comment

So I shared with you the invitations and wedding day extras for Kathryn & Grant’s Mexican-inspired Wedding, but the bride herself was gracious enough to share a few of her Wedding day photos to see how everything panned out.

I just love how the paper details I created with this Mexican Fiesta in mind actually looked on the special day. Now, I didn’t design these Novia and Novio signs, but they sure are popular and I’ve been asked for them a lot.

I’ve designed quite a few of these place cards and I think they look so lovely placed in this vessel with sand and succulents! The guests’ names were printed directly onto each escort card.

Here is an example of booklet-form Wedding Programs.

…and the table signs in this case look simply perfect standing next to the centerpiece. I still can’t believe how the colors matched so perfectly to the flowers, and the linens below.

Every time I layout one of these menu cards I absolutely salivate just reading each of the entries for the night’s dinner. I wish I were invited to each and every event!

Here is one of the sparkling details I fell in love with: aren’t these star lanterns just perfect for the event?! …and below, the lovely couple, of course.

Thank you to Kathryn & Grant for letting me be but a small part of their big day, and for sharing these lovely images by Geoff Duncan. Make sure to visit Geoff’s blog for a complete view of the beautiful details of this wedding.

mexican-inspired wedding day elements

Jan 25, 2013   //   by lizzybloves   //   Wedding Invitations, Wedding Stationery  //  5 Comments

The beautiful Mexican Tile Pattern Motifs can truly be transformed into many elements to be used through-out your Wedding Celebration. Monday and Tuesday I shared the various invitation options created all from one initial design. Today I’d like to share the day-of elements and extras, such as Save the Dates and Thank You Cards, which were also designed for many of the lovely brides.

Let’s start off with the Save the Date postcard created for a Wedding which is very close to happening! April, the bride-to-be, had already decided on using the Mexican tile-inspired Wedding Invitations and wanted to use some of the elements in a vintage-feeling postcard to give her guests an idea of what was to come.

We created a custom return address stamp as well as a motif corner stamp for the front of the envelope. April would later have the envelopes hand addressed to keep with the rustic feel.

Some examples of day-of items include escort cards and menus. All these items were for three different brides, thus the various colors, but you can tell the tile pattern motifs were used through-out in varied shapes and sizes.

Don’t you wish you were sitting at the dinner table at one of these lovely events just by reading the menu?! Believe me, I get very hungry laying these menus out. =)

The Wedding Program is a very important Wedding Day element as well. Here you can see two different formats: a 4-page booklet and a paddle-fan wedding program.

The Paddle-fan Wedding Programs are perfect for warm-weather events any time of the year!

And the most important element of a Wedding Invitation Suite, after the main event has passed, is the Thank You Card of course!!

Here you can see a few variations: two folded card options each with various Mexican Tile Pattern Motifs on the front and back of the card, and a single notecard which the Bride would use to leave sweet notes for her guests in welcome packages.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this run-down through the Mexican tile-inspired Wedding Suite. I hope to continue with many more variations of this lovely design, and many more to come!

mexican inspired invitation variations

Jan 23, 2013   //   by lizzybloves   //   Wedding Invitations  //  2 Comments

I shared the many iterations the Mexican tile-inspired Wedding Invitation took here on Monday. Well, as promised, here are a couple variations on that design, with the same Mexican Tile pattern design, but in a simplified, postcard-style format.

This version of the Mexican tile-inspired Wedding Invitation was printed on Italian Watercolor paper to keep the texture, but was only laid out in a 5″x7″ postcard size. It included an additional insert for an entire week of activities, custom envelope liner, and wrap-around address label.

This version uses my favorite color palette to add a vibrant feel to a Winter Beach Wedding, but still keeping it cool with the teal and violet. The fuchsia gives a great contrast to the deep violet, textured, envelopes.

I still have a lot of details to show you, so come back on Friday for the day-of extras inspired by these beautiful Mexican Tile motifs.

visual + sparkle = color

Jan 22, 2013   //   by lizzybloves   //   Color Palettes  //  No Comments

Spring is a little less than two months away and, although I usually dislike when bloggers get so far ahead in seasons/holidays in their posts, I can’t help but think of warmer temperatures while listening to one of my favorite Bossa Nova tunes and enjoying a refreshing drink with this beautiful weather we’ve had in San Diego. Sooo…that said, I was inspired by this lovely bouquet designed by Stems of Dallas via Ruffled. A perfect combination of warm and soft hues for a Spring Wedding indeed!

mexican wedding invitations

Jan 21, 2013   //   by lizzybloves   //   Wedding Invitations, Wedding Stationery  //  4 Comments

This past year has been a whirlwind of creation. Many lovely brides fell in love, aside from their soon-to-be’s, with the Mexican tile-inspired Wedding Invitation. I thought I’d share with you the many iterations this lovely design took: many colors, many tile design choices, modern/traditional variations, and of course the Wedding Day paper items and Wedding Thank You Cards that came from it too. Today I’ll share the invitation itself.

This version of the invitation was the first created and included two Mexican Tile design variations as well as two languages.

As you can see from this version, the color options are endless, especially with the various Mexican Tile designs available.

In this version the colors were more muted and closer to the initial Mexican Tile pattern design I created based on the original venue. Taya shared her inspiration on Engaged & Inspired.

I’ll give you a peek at the Day-of paper elements and extras throughout the week, but as you can see in the image above, Taya’s Mexican Tile Wedding Invitation Suite included a reply card with menu option icons as well as a rehearsal dinner mini-invitation and reply card in one!

For this most recent design the Mexican Tile Design took a more modern feel with the bright pops of yellow and turquoise. Of course, all inspired on the vibrant colors found throughout Mexican architecture and very well documented in my visual + sparkles = inspiration and visual + sparkle = colors.

These are all just but a small part of the Mexican tile-inspired Wedding Invitation Suites created through-out the last year; all keeping with the same format and Mexican tile designs. On Wednesday, I’ll share with you a couple variations of the design in a simplified, flat version, but still keeping the lovely tile inspiration in yet more vibrant color options!
