mexican-inspired wedding day elements

Jan 25, 2013   //   by lizzybloves   //   Wedding Invitations, Wedding Stationery  //  8 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  //  7 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.

mexican wedding invitations

Jan 21, 2013   //   by lizzybloves   //   Wedding Invitations, Wedding Stationery  //  19 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!

art deco wedding invitation

Dec 17, 2012   //   by lizzybloves   //   Wedding Invitations  //  3 Comments

It’s been some time in the making, but the Art Deco-inspired Wedding Invitation (well, actually a 40th anniversary invitation) is finally here!!

I shared the visual + sparkle = inspiration with you here, where I finalized the colors and feel for the overall design of the Invitation Suite. Of course, after comencing the process of design certain things changed, such as removing the gold color and making the bronze a darker shade. Over all, I think the final outcome is just gorgeous and I can’t wait to show you a second version which was created as a keepsake.

The Art Deco theme was inspired by the husband’s love of Art Deco architecture taking inspiration from architectural elements of various Los Angeles buildings and structures.

The elongated format of the invitation itself, fitting perfectly into a black, linen, #10 policy envelope, also reflects the long structures and slender motifs of the era.

The patterns were custom designed for the invitation suite, including the Save the Date which you can see below in this same post.

Each of the cards had a distinct pattern design, w/ one color combination on the front and an alternating color on the back, but always keeping to the carefully-chosen palette.

In order to keep costs down, the suite was printed digitally, but to add a sense of elegance we incorporated a pebble-textured belly band in a copper tone, which adds a touch of shimmer to the overall design.

A custom diamond-shaped logo w/ deco motifs was created to use as a decorative element on the belly band, on back of the rsvp, and on certain day-of elements.

The rsvp and save the date were paired w/ a metallic copper envelope to tie the whole suite together.

I’m in the midst of completing a second keepsake version of this invitation which includes textured stock, multiple folds, and photo corners!! Stay tuned for that. =)

lovebirds in the mail ~ a letterpressed invitation

Dec 10, 2012   //   by lizzybloves   //   Wedding Invitations  //  1 Comment

During the summer I was very fortunate to have the opportunity of working on many versions of my Mexican tile-inspired Wedding Invitation, which I’ll share with you in an invite retrospective before the year ends. But one very special invitation I was asked to collaborate on was this one for Ashley and Julian who married this past September, and whose invitation took elements from the Mexican tile-inspired Invitation in addition to original motifs.

Ashley, the newly Mrs. Garcia, asked me to just design the main elements of the invitation suite such as the invitation itself, an accompanying map, accommodations card, and rsvp card, she would take care of the printing on her end. When I found out the invitation suite would be letterpress printed I was filled with excitement because I had never had the opportunity of having one of my designs letterpressed. Just wait til you see!!

Before we jump ahead, isn’t this little detail of the wax seal with the lovebirds just adorable?!! Just one of the many special details Ashley incorporated into the invitation suite design.

And get a hold of this: LEATHER envelopes which were used as the main/outer envelope!!! WOW, loved it!!! When I opened my mailbox and this chocolatey lovely slipped out and into my hands I was instantly in love with the invitation suite!! Truly an excellent detail adding to the Mexican rustic feel.

The invitation suite was bundled into a tight package with onionskin paper and twine. Again, perfect elements adding to the rustic details.

All the pieces were letterpressed in two colors on a thick ecru stock.

A couple of the additional cards designed for the suite were an accommodations and transportation card, as well as a custom map and rsvp card.

Isn’t this Mexican-inspired Wedding Invitation Suite just beautiful?!! These picture really don’t do the details of the leather envelope and letterpress justice. Thank you Ashley for permitting me to collaborate with you on this special project for such a special day in your life, and of course for sending along a final invitation suite my way!! Congratulations!

an oasis in the desert :: a styled shoot

Aug 10, 2012   //   by lizzybloves   //   The Bottom Drawer, Wedding Invitations  //  1 Comment

Hi there everyone. I know it’s been a while since you’ve seen me around here, but hopefully you have been following me on Facebook and Twitter where I share snippets into the goings-on of Lizzy B Loves.

Well, a good reason for my absence from the blog is this fabulous styled shoot I was invited to be a part of. A couple month’s ago, Gia of Gia Zopatti Wedding Coordination + Event Design invited me to collaborate with other fabulous Wedding Industry creators to make her vision of an Oasis in the Desert come to life. I, of course, was in charge of the paper goods, which I was inspired to design by Georgia O’Keeffe and her beautiful watercolor flowers.

I added a few Mexican flourishes to the design, with touches of watercolor strokes in the chosen color palette of tinted pinks, yellows, and turquoise. As an interesting note, Gia just provided an image of a bouquet as inspiration for color and feel of the shoot, and it was great to see when we all arrived with our creations that everything coordinated perfectly!!

Take a peek at some of the other images shot by very talented photographer Leylla Badeanlou of Imagery with Impact Photography. She truly added her own touch to every scene.

And the beautiful floral design was by Kien of SignatureK Events & Flowers. I had the privilege of taking one of the floral arrangements home with me and they adorned my dining room for quite a while.

And of course many thanks to Stephanie and Glenn, our models, as well as Monica Garcia, the fantastic Make-up Artist of Makeup Artistry, for making Stephanie even more beautiful than she already is.

Make sure to visit Leylla’s blog for more of this…Oasis in the Desert!

mexican tile motif wedding invitation

May 15, 2012   //   by lizzybloves   //   Wedding Invitations  //  7 Comments

Today I’d like to share with you a variation of the Mexican Tile 50th Anniversary Invitation. You may have seen it already in our ‘Collection‘ section, but in keeping the newlyweds in mind since they just celebrated their big day on the 6th of this month, I thought I’d give this beauty some light.

Mexican tile motifs adorn this variation of the Mexican tile-inspired Invitation, now with bright pops of fuchsia and turquoise to compliment the Riviera Maya beach venue.

For this version of the invitation, square envelopes were hand assembled to capture the exact fuchsia hue the bride envisioned.

Also, instead of the reception card which could be found on the bottom section of the previous version, a separate reply card with accompanying envelope was created for this set.

The bride opted to use two of the four original Mexican tile pattern designs, each with alternating fuchsia and turquoise colors, and one in English and the other in Spanish.

Stay tuned for more variations of this very popular Mexican Tile Wedding Invitation. With four pattern designs, the possibilities are endless!!

Would you like to make this design Uniquely yours? Send us an email with any questions or ideas.

we are stamping

Mar 21, 2012   //   by lizzybloves   //   Wedding Invitations  //  No Comments

Just received some fun packages yesterday. Among them I found lovely bright yellow envelopes, Save-the-dates to be inserted into those yellow envelopes (which ship tomorrow!!), and, best of all, custom stamps for the return address and front-of-the-envelope motif which can be used on many other Wedding-related items by the bride and groom.

I’m so excited to be introducing Custom Stamps to the Lizzy B Loves repertoire, it adds a great textural element to the stationery suite. Stay tuned for more from this new Save-the-date with inspired Mexican motifs.

squirrel baby shower invitations

Dec 5, 2011   //   by lizzybloves   //   Baby Shower Invitations  //  1 Comment

Many great things are coming to LizzyB Loves. A new site for the coming Spring (with a new sneak peek in a few weeks) and much more, but in the meantime, take a look at the cutest Squirrel Baby Shower Invitations I designed for my sister-in-law’s Baby Shower.

She is now considered the Snow White of the family with all the little critters that flock to her (amongst them dogs, squirrels, and butterflies), so I based the custom illustration on her current pet, Squeeky the squirrel.

The color palette was a soft, rosy pink combined with a chocolate brown. I shared the visual + sparkle = inspiration with you here.


All the illustrations were brought in together with graphic elements of chevron patterns and crest shapes.


The invitation consisted of a metallic pink folder which held the invitation card on one side and double-sided registry card in the folder slot.

The Squirrel Baby Shower invitation was held together with a chocolate brown belly band to give contrast with the soft pink, combined with a floral patterned paper band to add a touch of brightness to the palette. And of course the squirrel motif could not be left out on the front as the first thing the guest saw as they received the invitation.

I’ll share the decor pieces I created with the same chevron and squirrel theme in the coming days.
