For those of you that are like, “Wait… what happened to the Studio DIY ‘Summer never ends!’ mentality!?” Never fear! My Halloween costumes will bring you right back there. But after kicking off fall yesterday, I wanted to talk a bit about another very special wedding! Last weekend, Lauren got married in Chicago! I’ve said all along that I don’t know how I would have gotten (almost!) through this process without Lauren doing it too, and it’s been really fun to see how different our weddings are. Funny enough, I love hers just as much as mine! Lauren went with an all greenery theme. Outside of dahlias and garden roses in the bouquets, all the decor was inspired by magnolia leaves and olive leaf, with a few touches of black and white. It was GORGEOUS! I mean, girl’s got good taste. That’s why I keep her around. Garlands down the table, copper tassels behind the ceremony. Oh, I loved it. When Lauren asked for some invitation ideas, I was pretty excited to pair her up with Minted and bring in Kate to design a custom envelope liner! I’m even sharing the liner printable here today so all you fall brides out there can incorporate it into your design too! This is a great way to use the foliage themes of fall without the traditional orange and red color palette!

The pattern will print as a full 8.5×11″ sheet so you can size it to your specific envelope. I recommend tracing the envelope onto scrap paper then cutting off a 1/4″-1/2″ on each side and the top to make a liner template!
Lauren likes simple and clean design, so the Just Lovely invitation was perfect! Minted let’s you choose custom colors (green in this case), as well as pick your silhouette. Once she decided on the invitation and color, I sent over a photo of the foliage Lauren was using to Kate… and she perfectly matched the Minted green and the magnolia and olive leaves for a liner! I don’t know about you guys, but I am all about envelope liners. It’s kind of like when jackets have great lining on the inside. It’s not the first detail you notice… but it’s often the most memorable! Lauren chose to do a postcard style RSVP and on the backside there was a space for each guest to write a little note to the couple. My note? An emoji dancing sticker. I have a way with words, I tell ya… 😉
I have one more zomg amazing detail from Lauren and Mike’s wedding that Minted helped out with to share soon.. which will include a little peek at the crazy awesome garlands they picked for the reception tables! Stay tuned!
