We stumbled upon Sweetcookie Vintage while browsing Etsy and immediately fell in love with her designs.  Not only are they vintage inspired and gorgeous, but they are Eco-friendly as well! Swoon!  Any of her Save the Date/Invitations designs can be made into Placecards, Table Numbers, and Thank You cards to carry your theme throughout your wedding.  Any quantity of each item can be ordered (there is no maximum) with a minimum order of only 40.   And if you’re looking to save a little cash on printing services, she even has DIY listings- Meaning you buy the design and print them yourself!

How Kristy and her team create each invitation: 

“The designs are usually somewhat complex and virtually impossible to hand draw on hundreds of individual pieces. For most designs, the original artwork is scanned and reproduced onto your chosen paper. Hand-painted accents are then added to the printed design. Kristy most often uses gouache, watercolor, shimmer inks and acrylic.

Our patterned designs are hand-pressed and individually hand-painted – no artwork is printed on these pieces.”

Most of Momental Designs invitation sets come complete with, but are not limited to:

“- Invitation with one border or double border depending on the choice of design 
– Response and reception enclosures
– Printed response envelope and outer envelope (color of choice)
– Ensemble folder (designed to contain all invitation elements)
– Hand-painted details in your choice of shimmer ink color

Embellishments such as rhinestones, wraps and tags are additional.”

Why Brides LOVE Kristy Rice and Momental Designs:

“Kristy Rice is indeed a storyteller of style; communicating for her brides in paint and pen, paper and prose, very personal stories with attention to detail and an unmistakable sense of hand.”

Please, head on over to Momental Designs and see these gorgeous invitations for yourself (and show the Momental Girls some love while you’re there).  They also can custom create almost anything you have in mind to go along with your wedding’s theme and colors.  Wouldn’t it be nice to not only give your guests an invitation that showcases your wedding’s theme, but also a custom piece of artwork?  Seriously. Amazing.
