2013 Wedding Trend: Lace

We’ve seen this trend all year “Lace” and it is showing up everywhere from the clothes we wear to the decor we buy for our homes. At Ann Elizabeth we are privileged to create beautiful pieces of art thru our invitations and lace has been, and continues to be, a soft yet elegant way for our clients to express themselves on paper. We also love seeing how other vendors in the wedding industry are using lace so I thought I’d share some of my favorites.

The first invitation set is Reaback-Sutton. This is a beautiful combination where textured and metallic papers meet letterpress printing and complete the look with a lace paper overlay along with a lace band to hold the reply card giving this invitation an extra touch of elegance.

This lovely bouquet was made by Calie Rose Floral and Event Design. Their bride Mandie Maughan-Krause is featured with her bouquet in the Utah Valley Bride Magazine and was on the cover of the Spring 2013 issue. Calie Rose did an amazing job designing her bouquet taking her colors of blush, cream and light mocha then adding the soft touch of lace complementing the lace bodice of her wedding gown (purchased from Veronica Michaels). Kristina Curtis Photography really captures Mandie’s romantic vintage theme throughout her wedding and you can see more pictures from Kristina in Utah Valley Bride Magazine.

We had the pleasure of being invited to create the invitation suite for Utah Bride Blog fall editorial shoot in 2012. So I wanted to share how Ann came up with the creation of the “Leather and Lace” invitation and how last fall her inspiration was already setting the lace trend for 2013! After a couple days of brainstorming ideas Ann woke in the middle of the night with the thought of “Leather and Lace” and quickly sketched out a horse head idea with lace behind it.  When creativity hits you write it down so you can remember it later!

Using straps of leather tied around an invitation with a lace layer and a horse head monogram applied directly to leather gave this unique invitation a “balance between hard and soft elements.” Keeping the flow of the theme she added a lace envelope liner for the RSVP. Then to remind guest of the invitation she used a touch of lace, and a horse head tag tied with leather on the menu completing this invitation suite!
