Feature : Exquisite Weddings Magazine "Love Letters..."

It is always an absolute delight to be featured in the press - the fall issue of Exquisite Weddings Magazine decided to shine a little light on Pink Dot Press! Although not our maiden voyage in this publication, subsequently I was otherwise interviewed for my thoughts on the latest in invitation trends in Love Letters from The Heart [pg. 42]

Interviewed by Trisha Ryan, a contributing writer for the magazine, I dished on all things hot heavy with regards to latest in wedding invitation trends. Seems that more and more brides just want something different, be it bold color combinations, unconventional layouts or just plain unexpectedness. The central theme remains the same - the modern bride wants a handcrafted feel that is modern in taste and style. There's plenty more where that came from so, pick up a copy and read on! Thanks Trisha + EWM for the interview, it's positively praiseworthy!

Dark-Decadent-Debonair + Dressing the Part [3]

Aristocratic and debonair, these charming invitations are fit for a swanky affair! Drenched and pressed in smokey black ink, each piece bestows an original illustration - sophisticated... don'tcha think? For two adoring New Yorkers, both happily submerged in creative careers, these invitations were to be the crowning jewel to their sumptuous city inspired wedding. What I love most about this set is that it's classic and clean yet dark, slightly mysterious and whimsical too. It's serious but fun, most of all it's decadent, dripping with drama and perfectly suited as such! The backdrop to this wedding is so eloquently emblazoned by way of New York City skyline on the custom envelope liner. This pop of rich Cabernet on creme is that little element of unexpectedness that makes me clap my hands with glee - it's exciting, and isn't just about everything better when a little excitement is involved? Which leads me to the 3rd installment of 'Dressing the Part.'

Supposing that I were expected in attendance, and dressing the part by perfectly matching my attire to these lovely invitations, a dainty little black dress would be a must! Perfectly tailored with an impeccable fit, this little black number would certainly call out for some drama by means of accessories. I'm thinking this aristocrat collar would be the statement made along with these darling pumps. Not for the bashful, these accessories are bold and delicious like their envelope liner counter part. Lastly a cocktail ring - a big one - and just because. This just might be my most inspiring ensemble yet, an immaculate paring to this dazzling invitation set!

Pink Dot Pretties

Behold... the Bubble Necklace! And the constant torture from jcrew continues. Just when I thought it couldn't get any more amazing - they do this. My obsession with the big and the bold has only been fueled by this marvelous storm of pink bubbles. It's lady like, it's PINK, and it's bubbly - it makes me want to sip champagne. For now, I will throw it on top of my pile of endless wants and hope that some day it can cuddle next to it's soul sister atop my dresser.
