The Moderno Suite Is a modern design, but has a very organic feel. It is letterpress printed on 100% cotton cardstock, backed with a dark chocolate textured cardstock, uses a modern hand silk-screened Japanese decorative paper and is wrapped with micro suede tape.

I love when designers share their own tips, based on their own experience, with brides. I've asked Robin to share with us some ideas to consider when choosing or designing your wedding invitation...

As many people have said before, the invitation can really set the tone for the event. When it comes time to choose invitations, most brides have already created their inspiration boards, chosen their colors and styles, picked their location, flowers, fashion and almost everything else.

Just as I use the incredible decorative papers that I find as my source of inspiration to create the invitation designs, so should you use the overall design of your wedding to help you choose your invitations. Whether it is a decorative paper, unique typefaces (and I mean more than one), ink colors, ribbons or other embellishments, all of it can help to make sure your invitations perfectly represent who you and your fiancé are and what your wedding day means to you.

When a guest opens your invitation, it should invoke a feeling of what you are about as a couple and what the event will be like. Make sure to include elements of your invitations on your inspiration boards and you will know very easily if they fit in with your style. Most of all, don¹t be afraid to have fun and let your own personal style shine through with your invitations!

Thank you so much, Robin, for sharing this with us!!
