Wedding Invitations by Robin Beth

I met Robin about three years ago when she was launching her first line of handmade letterpress invitations, Robin Beth Designs. Robin's attention to detail is truly unmatched, her styles are beautiful and her love of letterpress is shown in every piece that she creates. Robin is as sweet and as talented as they come, so when she sent me this oh-so-pretty inspiration board based on one of her new designs, I had to share!

Style Me Pretty, along with four other wonderful blogs, was featured by Martha Stewart on her morning show. Yep, it's true. She opened the show with a little segment on blogs, then mentioned a few of us in the audience...

Avalon’s Inspiration Board – Chocolate and White

From Avalon...

We were married on 08.10.07 in Tilden Regional Park in Berkeley, CA and used a dark chocolate, white, and aqua color palette. We let the natural setting around us infuse the wedding with different shades of green. We wanted our wedding to be simple, elegant, and special, which is what led me to choose these nine pictures in particular.

DIY Stamped Seating Cards

Having both of my sisters, and myself, get married in the last few years, we have accumulated quite the selection of bridal magazines. Last night, out of boredom, I started pouring through old copies of Martha Stewart Weddings. She never fails to amaze me...this stuff is so cute and still so great for today's weddings.

So, I wanted to take this week to highlight some of my favorite features from all of these bridal magazines that are sitting on my shelf, collecting unnecessary dust.

3 sets of wedding stationery

For future reference, Inspiration Boards are my way of having a brainstorming session. It is basically just a general "look" that I pull together from a variety of sources, whether it be fine china, textiles, old paintings, anything really...just like an interior designer or a fashion designer would create for a potential client, my inspiration boards help me to find a general direction and style that I want to go in with my designs.

Okay, here we go.

My very best...
