Alicia and Lawrence hosted an autumn wedding in Vermont and chose our Overlook design to compliment the outdoorsy elegance of their venue. An earthy color palette of copper shine foil and olive and prussian blue letterpress inks set the tone for these rustic wedding invitations, as did the jute envelopes lined in our natural woodgrain pattern.
letterpress inks: olive + prussian blue | foil stamping: copper shine | font: laramie | paper: bella cotton ivory 1-ply + 2-ply | edge painting: prussian blue | foil edging: copper shine | envelope: jute | envelope liner: natural woodgrain pattern in olive | customization #22442 + #24466
Stacy and Hunter fell for our Overlook wedding invitation design, swapping out the woodland motif and rustic color palette for a more sleek, modern design. Copper Shine foil, classic Black letterpress ink and the wedding bands motif from our extensive collection (a free customization!) were the perfect fit for their Los Angeles loft wedding.

You met the one, you have the ring, you set the date – now you need to make the big announcement! Save the dates are a great way to let your guests know when you plan on getting married. Save the dates are the first glimpse of what’s to come when it comes to your wedding, so make sure they deliver the style and vibe you’re going for. Save the dates can also be a little less formal than invitations, so this gives you a chance to get creative!
[Our dapper Vintage Charm save the dates set the tone for a swanky wedding weekend in California.]
[Minimalistic and to the point – our Bold Stripe delivers all the vital information in a stylish layout.]
[Did you know that we can letterpress a border for you to adhere your own photos to our cards? That’s exactly what this Branch save the date did!]
[If you can’t find a save the date that fits your style we can create a custom design for you — or we can accept custom submitted designs so that your save the dates are 100% you!]
[Impress your guests with custom hand calligraphy like our Amor save the dates.]
[What says a fall wedding like rustic colors and a charming woodsy styled save the date? Our Overlook doesn’t disappoint.]
[If you’re getting married in specific city, why not make that the theme? Our Charmed Washington DC is perfect for any event in the nation’s capital.]
Save the dates are typically sent 6-12 months before the wedding. We have save the dates in all different styles, from vintage to rustic to modern. If you need help figuring out which design would work well for your wedding, please feel free to contact us! We offer a comprehensive personal shopper survey to help narrow down colors, designs, and choices, too, so don’t worry if you’re not sure where to start. And if you’re stuck trying to figure out how to word your save the date, be sure to check out our etiquette suggestions.
We love seeing the real weddings of our customers, but it’s an extra-special treat when we get to see them in print! Martha Stewart Weddings magazine featured not one, but two real weddings of Bella Figura brides & grooms in their Fall 2012 issue. The first wedding featured our modern Pyramid design by Ellie Snow, while the second showcased our Garden Vine design by Erin Jang. Check out some of the other fantastic publications that Bella Figura has been spotted in this fall.
Inside Weddings included several Bella Figura invitations for their Fall 2012 issue as well — Kelle Anne McCarter’s Canto design, Lindsy Aragona’s Overlook design and a customization of Jamie Lea Bertsch’s Cecilia all shared the spotlight.
Town & Country Weddings put together a fabulous round-up of inspiration for a New York City wedding, and included a gorgeous customization of our Charmed New York invitation design as part of the feature.
Pacific Weddings magazine included Ian Koenig’s Dash design and Jamie Lea Bertsch’s Indie Twill design in their gorgeous, equestrian-inspired reception set-up. Bonus: they’ve got even more photos from this amazing shoot on their website!
Brides magazine featured Bella Figura in both their October and their November issues! In October, letterpress place cards featuring our Rosemary design were included as part of a Tuscan Garden inspiration palette. The November issue featured several Bella Figura designs — our Bejeweled design fit in perfectly with a “Roaring Twenties” inspiration page (which is overflowing with glamorous, Gatsby-esque touches) and three of our foil stamped invitations (Dada by Jamie Lea Bertsch; Glamorous Blooms and Fugue by Kamal) were included in an “All that Glitters” feature.
Think rustic cabins, muted colors, and changing leaves – this woodsy customization of our Overlook letterpress wedding invitation (by Lindsy Aragona) is perfect for Autumn weddings.
