A bride contacted me about using my skyline outlines at the bottom of the invite instead of the solid/filled in version, I said "absolutely!"  This is how they turned out.  LOVE!

Weddings and Dogs

Many engaged couples have dogs. Their babies. Their pride and joy.  (I was one, prior to 4 kids.) Engaged couples are looking for ways to include their babies into the wedding.

There are so many awesome collars and bowties and even tuxes and floral pieces if your pup is walking down the aisle.  Search Google or Etsy and too many to choose!  I love incorporating dogs into the wedding invitation suite.

This couple met in school where he used to pick on her but years later they are happily engaged with 2 Chihuahua's.  I created a custom design to showcase this.
Even though the dogs weren't attending their destination wedding we incorporated them by parachuting in to join in the festivities.

The dachshund lovers invite has them on both the invite and response card.

Or if you prefer, add them in a smaller way.  Add your dog to your wedding insert,
it's just a sweet part of this whole wedding suite
or add on the response card 
like this pug loving couple did for a Seattle New Years wedding
No matter how you decide to incorporate, own it! Love it! Have fun with it!
You can find these and other wedding invitations in my shop
I'd love to work with you to add your pup or pet to your wedding invitations, please contact me at Stephanie@StelieDesigns.com

Rainbow love

The violet invitation design in rainbow colors with gold. LOVE, LOVE how they turned out!  I was excited when designing them digitally but seeing in print on natural white made me gush with joy! The bride loved them too. 
The gold envelopes add an extra touch of excitement along with the invite and postcard rsvp.

These are the save the dates, in greens and blues and grey.  (they did have rounded corners too, in my excitement to photograph while the sun was out and wind was low, I obviously forgot to round the corners)
