Extending upon our recent love of finely hand penned calligraphy, all looping, trailing tendrils of ink, we're completely inspired by the delicate opulence of golden markings against cream and black papers, hinting at moods of twilight elegance and glamorous festivities ahead.
With invitations and save-the-date stationery often serving as the first inclination for guests of what kind of wedding to expect, these delicately luxe examples set the perfect tone for luxe, evening celebrations. More loosely executed than traditional calligraphy, this style of hand touched lettering beautifully offsets the formality of the gold with irregular inclusions and imperfections, hand made markings and undulating words.
For a rustic sensibility consider deckled edges or brown paper envelopes, while black bases effortlessly create a mood of evening drama and opulence. The classicism of thick cream stock finished with gilded accents is completely timeless and offers a beautifully polished blank canvas if you're undecided yet on the final mood and styling of your wedding ahead.
