Hand Me That Envelope!

I am hopelessly in love..... with wedding invitations.  Call me old-fashioned, old-school, old-timey - but I feel a surge of excitement when I get a wedding invitation.  There's a lovely feeling that comes from being invited to one of the most important days in a person's life,  and for me, there's something that is so beautiful, so magical - so promising! - about that thick envelope with all its gorgeous bits 'n' bobs inside..... A visually stunning invitation can act as a tease to the big event; the colour theme, the design and patterns chosen for each element of the invitation package, the fonts of the lettering, the finish chosen for the card stock, even the fonts chosen - these are all little hints about the couple as well as what kind of celebration they have in store for us.  There's something so collaborative, creative, and ultimately gratifying for a couple, this process of sitting down with a pro and brainstorming, expressing ideas, pulling inspirations and at the end of it all, having a gorgeous little teaser they can send out to hype their nuptials!

Feast your eyes on these thirty stationary companies that create great little enveloped works of art - and they're Canadian, all across the country and potentially in your backyard! 

Wedding invitations are a sweet detail that can set the tone for your big day. Enjoy the opportunity to make a bit of a visual spectacle of it - and get your guests excited and maybe even a little impatient for your wedding!

Wishing you a day as limitless as you are ~
Lisa and April
