Vibrant Blue Long Beach Wedding

We can't help but fall in love with this adorably sweet couple and we're sure you'll feel the same way after hearing their romantic love story. Melvin Gilbert Photography introduced us to this lovely duo through their stunning wedding at the Long Beach Museum of Art in Cali. But, before tying the knot these two sweethearts had an unfolding love story that lead up to this very day. Sarah & Chris met at a freshman mixer at Colorado State University, but didn't date until their senior year of college. Fast forward ten years and you'll find Chris proposing to Sarah in a romantic vineyard during one of their traditional trips. To see more of this lovely duo look ahead and as always, enjoy!

Lace Wedding Invitations… A Fit for Every Theme

If you look through your mother’s wedding photo album all the way down to your grandmother’s or even great grandmother’s, you will surely find traces of lace and that is because lace has become one of the most timeless pieces that translates through any theme. With its intricate and delicate beauty, it’s only natural to incorporate this sophisticated, classic, and yes, even edgy trend, into your wedding in a cool subtle way. How you may ask? Through your invites, of course! They are what set the tone for the grand day, so why not go big and go lace with Invitations by Dawn!

With marvelous themes like Vintage Inspired, Classic Elegance, Rustic Romance, and Enchanted Garden it is impossible not to opt for having a little (or a lot!) of lace on your wedding invites.

Vintage Inspired:
A vintage inspired wedding always has one goal in mind and that is to recreate the past in present time, so it’s only fitting to use the openwork material that started the vintage theme before vintage was a trend. Lace is the staple to all things vintage from gorgeous gowns to intricate wedding cakes- so why not incorporate it into one of the most important aspects of your big day, invitations. Abundant Beauty is one of ours faves and it’ll definitely be one of yours too! This laser cut wedding invite has everything you could ever dream of - a beautifully embossed pattern, a unique gate fold to reveal the ecru shimmer beauty that lies within and thermography print for a raised lettering effect.

Classic Elegance:
Nothing, and we do mean nothing, epitomizes classic like Princess Kate Middleton and her gorgeous lace wedding gown that every bride since the royal wedding has tried to recreate. But, even before the princess took lace detailing to another level of fabulous, lace has been favored through centuries for one reason and one reason only. It epitomizes the definition of classic and not to mention, it ups the romance factor any day. If lace is good enough for the princess herself, it is good enough for us. So let’s take a page from Kate Middleton’s book of gorgeous style and apply it to the very first taste that your guests will get of your wedding, your invitations. Lace invitations are not only a classic touch, but will stand the test of time for many more years to come. Invitations by Dawn offers a variety of beautiful lace invitations to suit your personal style and budget, but two of our absolute favorites are Simply Radiant & Luminous Filigree. Simply Radiant is just that, radiant with style with an intricately detailed frame pattern on laser cut paper, but it is the sheer white envelope that adds a touch of romance to your royalesque classic invites. Luminous Filigree looks and feels straight out of a royal wedding with vintage appeal and intricately laser cut design to wow your guests, all you need to complete this classic look is to personalize these beauties and voila!

Rustic Romance:
Rustic weddings have made their way to one of the trendiest and must-have wedding themes of the year. Without a doubt, we’ve seen our fair share of the most beautiful rustic wedding decor out there and we’ve taken notice of the most used element, lace. Lace is unique in that it is one of the most versatile elements for a wedding. It can easily be transformed from vintage to classic, to an edgier-rustic vibe and it is all how and what you pair it with. Since we know that most of you are fans of rustic weddings as we are, we thought we’d spice things up and give you some ideas on how to infuse your pretty little invites into rustic chic ones, all you need is Invitations by Dawn to lead the way. Invitations by Dawn is home to some of the most amazing designs around the web so it’s no surprise that we found two very perfect designs to fit any rustic romance theme. The Beaming Beauty features an extravagant design lace and luminous shine with laser cut ornate patterns and details to captivate your wedding guests while incorporating just the right blend of jute rope for a rustic-country vibe. The Lace Finish Wedding Invitation is a soft and country chic combination of lace details with a burlap-textured background that delivered a mixture of delicate design and rustic appeal.

Enchanted Garden
It is absolutely no secret that we love, love, love a good outdoor soiree and even more so when it revolves around a romantic and ultra-chic enchanted garden theme. For the perfect dash of whimsical and naturalistic touch all you need is lace, it is effortlessly beautiful with a touch of fresh blooms and you’re set for an enchanted garden soiree. Pretty simple right? Invitations by Dawn has you covered with its Rose Reviere laser cut beauty, which features an embossed rose while an elegant filigree pattern presents the flower to your guests for a wow factor.
