Paper Style

It's so cold here today. There is some sort of cold snap which I'm not liking although it feels beautiful to sit in the sun. And not feeling all too well. I've had this constant headache for the past two days.

I bought this book called Paper Style by Cristina Re and it's lovely. It's a guide to making you're own wedding invitations though I'm still hoping I will letter press them (if I get my butt into gear) but it's good for inspiration. Here are a few photos from the book.

The book cover is very pretty and girly which attracted me straight away (funnily enough it was a guy I work with who said I should get this book when we saw it at work lol). 

I just thought this was sweet. Definitely too pink and girly for our wedding but good for future girly events.

The book had sections for colours. This was for the white section. I think I should make a wedding board.

This book is great for getting ideas. It's nice to seek inspiration from books, magazines, blogs and just talking to other people.

I adore those wedding photos of shoes. It's so sweet and  makes me want to get some done.

I just thought to add these for some weekend inspiration. I really like these photos and I like her bouquet. Oh I want to set a material background like that so we can have a sort of photo booth at our reception.

Have a lovely weekend!!

A photo booth would be so fun...vintage and quirky at the same time. That book likes it has some really good inspiration. Can't wait to see what you do with your invitations.
