Mad Men Inspired Save The Date Invites Templates

Do It Yourself, or DIY, wedding projects allow you to create your own personalized favors and touches that can be applied in any way you can imagine on your special day, for a shower, a party or whenever. All you need are some basic items and a little creativity.

These Mad Men Inspired Save The Date Invites Templates are inspired by Susie, our own Wedding Chick, who had a Mad Men inspired wedding of her own. They can be customized with your colors and other info. They’re MAD. See them here and get started. We have lots more DIY project ideas here.

 

Design Tips from Susie:
1) The “IN” will always be the same color as the background color. “LOVE” is always white. Keep that in mind as you choose your other colors.

2) If you want the full bleed (so the color goes all the way to the edges of your paper), print each centered on a full sheet of letter size card stock, or save paper by printing two per sheet, with the design at a size of 6 inches wide by 4 inches high. Then trim them down to size with a paper cutter, or even easier, just take them to Kinkos and have them cut for you.

3) If you want to take the theme a step further, send them out as postcards with vintage stamps. I found a large selection of unused stamps from the early 60s on Ebay that we’ll be using on ours.

4) If you’d like to use your own fonts and colors in the custom text area, just leave those fields blank when you create your image with our custom tool. Then you can open the file in another program, like Photoshop, and place your text in the fonts of your choice on top of the design.

Go crazy!

Black, White & Red Wedding Ideas

The Stylish Soiree shared with some great black, white & red details that we know you would enjoy. This entire chic set up was inspired by Chanel Spring 2010 Ready to Wear runway show that could be translated into a beautifully styled wedding. There are more photos to see over at SMP from this stylish set up that you might be interested in checking out.

Studio 28 shot this gorgeous set up at Brookside Equestrian Center to resemble the actual Chanel runway show that took place under a huge wooden barn that had a farm-like equestrian feel. If you are already ooh and awing at the red and black flowers they where designed by one of our favorites, JL Designs & Events.

Read on below to learn more on how this stylish event came to life

Rosettes, bows and sheer, feminine fabrics like tulle and lace characterized the bridesmaid looks, which were primarily black and white with vibrant pops of red as seen in the Chanel show. Oversized headpieces with messy hair lent an editorial drama to the girly ensembles, and lace tights were worn under both changes of clothes to mimic those seen on the runway. All three wedding gowns used in the shoot were from Lâ’ezu Atelier in Beverly Hills, and makeup and hair artist Dedra Whitt created the fresh bridal and bridesmaid hair and makeup to mimic what was seen in the show.

The tablescape featured the khaki colored Russian linen from Wildflower Linens paired with a table runner I created from black and white tweed fabric, a classic Chanel fabric choice. Wildflowe’s cream hemstitch ivory napkins were folded beneath the black French glass charger plates from Party Rental King and topped with menus hand-written by Calligraphy Katrina, who also created the red place cards.

Carissa from JL Designs & Events created the floral tablescape with various milk glass containers scattered down the center of a long table. Carissa incorporated a mixture of white and red florals that included ranunculas, tulips, blackberries and anemones, which were prominently featured in the Chanel show attached to shoes, bags and as hair pieces. Carissa also made the stunning bridal and bridesmaid bouquets from anemones and blackberries, and we wrapped the stems in the signature Chanel tweed fabrics.

Southern Oregon 50′s Wedding Engagement

There where so many cute photos in this engagement shoot I seriously could not decide which ones to put up. You definitely have to check out Celebrate Life Photography to see some of the other photos. You can, here and  click here To see the entire engagement session.

Natalee & Rhett’s wedding theme is a 50′s backyard BBQ, and they wanted the engagement session to have a similar theme. I think they nailed it right on the head.
