wedding bells + cute invites

even though our big day has come and gone, i still get a kick out of beautiful wedding design. so i was thrilled to hear from emily henrickson and her groom keith cotton about the cute details at their march 2009 wedding- namely their stationery.

designed by mok duk, their invites had such a fun, playful feel- a mood that was carried out in other details (like the various mustache photos).

speaking of fun wedding invites, this fun wheel invite from lauren venell’s wedding, via do it yourself. i love the wooden details.


and last but not least, check out this doozy of an invite below, designed by matt dorfman for his 2008 wedding. it’s long, but i love all the typefaces and getting to hear the full story of how they met, along with the actual invite. [via i do it yourself]
