Calligraphy-Inspired Wedding Invitations

Calligraphy is a huge wedding design trend featured on dreamy wedding Instagram feeds and Pinterest boards right now. We love using this romantic element for many of our own wedding invitations by working with some absolutely stunning types.

You can get this style on your wedding stationery without the DIY calligraphy skills; the team at Art Paper Scissors can help you coordinate the right elements for a handwritten-inspired invitation suite perfect for your theme. Scroll below for some swoonworthy styles featuring gorgeous handwritten-inspired types!

Winter Wedding Wonderland

Baby, it’s cold outside…and we are absolutely in love with winter wedding inspiration!

We think winter is the most special time of the year to get hitched. Why, you ask? Gorgeous snowfall, cozy fireplaces, warm hot cocoa and snuggle sessions. Winter reminds us of merriment and good cheer, dressing up in our favorite outfits and celebrating joy and happiness with a delicious glass (or two) of wine, surrounded by love. Love is truly in the air this time of year.

Winter inspires some truly elegant and stunning wedding invitation elements. We’re sharing our favorite winter wedding invitations for you to add to your dreamy #winterwonderland Pinterest board!

Silver & Bright
Silver and white – can any color combination be more perfect for winter? A modern spin on classic colors, these chic foil wedding invitations are perfect for an elegant winter affair.

Rich Reds
Elegant red and gold start the winter celebrations perfectly! Detailed with watercolor florals and mirror accents, this is one invitation suite your guests will surely love.

Purple is the color of royalty – perfect for this luxurious affair in the snowy mountains of Vermont! We absolutely love these invitations’ simple snowflake details, purple hues and woodgrain accents.

A Holiday Letter from Lisa

As 2017 wraps up, and another beautiful holiday season is upon us, I can’t help but think of all the incredible memories and milestones I have experienced both professionally as the owner of Art Paper Scissors and personally as a wife and mother.

Some wonderful highlights:

Art Paper Scissors celebrated its seventh anniversary! What started as a love of paper and all things design turned into a business that gives me so much joy. This year we assisted so many couples in bringing their dream wedding invitations and stationery to life.

The love behind the business: my husband and I celebrated our eighth wedding anniversary. We welcomed our second sweet daughter to complete our little family.

We hit 1K followers on Instagram in just a few short months!

We proudly worked with a variety of incredible vendors and venues to help our clients enjoy the happiest time of their lives.

The sweetest way to end this year? Another win as one of The Knot’s Best of Weddings for the sixth year in a row. We cannot be any happier!

Thank you for your constant love and support. We can’t wait to see and share the love, happiness and memories 2018 brings.

From our family to yours, wishing you a very happy and healthy holiday season.
