I received our wedding invitations in the mail over the weekend and we were so delighted with the results! If you haven't already browsed Etsy you are sadly missing out on an assortment of beautiful, handmade (and usually very affordable!) goods by artists from all over the world. If it hadn't been for my obsession with Etsy I never would have run across the fabulous studio we've collaborated with for our wedding materials.
I've been working with Viva la Violette, a studio that specializes in making unique stationary and invitations. Violet (the name of the woman who founded the studio) is a dream to work with - passionate about her craft, creative, thoughtful, timely and open to feedback. I highly recommend her.
After I received her invitations, I did a bit of sleuthing on her Etsy shop to see if she had anything new in stock. Turns out she did! Gorgeous new invitations with silouette designs. I purchased the purple ones pictured above. So affordable (just $12!) and distinct. I love that you can personalize your name on them too.
