V70: CECI INSPIRATIONS – WINTER REVERIE

WINTER REVERIE

I’m ready for all the holiday madness. Are you?

Since I’m such a visually oriented person, I’m always thinking in terms of color palettes. One of my absolute favorites for this time of year is a mix of shiny pearls, soft ivories, and sparkling silvers – think of it as a glamorous take on snow.

To get you inspired, this week I’m featuring the invitations we designed for Remy and David, who held a winter wedding in Philadelphia. Take a look for yourself and I think you’ll agree that despite the lack of color, the mood of the invites is super luxurious and festive. Hint: the magic touch is in the gold and silver foil details!

Whether you’re throwing a winter fete this December or, more likely, hitting the holiday party circuit, I suggest giving this bright, shiny palette a try – it works equally well for your home and for your wardrobe. Speaking of wardrobes, check out the topper I’m wearing in the photo below. I designed it out of laser-cut paper snowflakes made from old invites and scrap paper. How’s that for a party hat?

V70: CECI CREATIVE TIPS – FOIL STAMPING ON YOUR INVITATIONS

Ceci Creative Tips
Ceci Johnson of Ceci New York

FOIL STAMPING ON YOUR INVITATIONS

For those of you looking to add a little shine to your invitations without all the “bling,” I recommend trying what’s called foil stamping. It’s perfect for those who love a touch of shimmer and want to add a more dressed-up elegance to their wedding invitations. One of my favorite techniques is to foil stamp only the couple’s names in a lovely metallic color so they stand out, which is what I did for Remy & David’s invitations. Aren’t their names so beautiful in that pop of champagne-gold foil against the crisp white paper? Try it yourself next time. It’s a great alternative to engraving, and not as expensive or formal. And for a wonderful substitute to gluing crystals on your invitation, try foil stamping the design details to give it that perfect finishing, shining touch!

V70: SAVVY STYLE ADVICE – REMY LAPIDUS CAHN

Savvy Style Advice
Remy Lapidus Cahn

REMY LAPIDUS CAHN
One important tip that I learned during the wedding planning was to stay true to my personal style throughout the process despite all the opinions around me! It was most important to my husband and me that our personalities were represented in little ways throughout the day. After the fact, we learned that this was what all our guests remembered and loved the most!

What It’s Like to Be a Ceci Bride:
We loved working with Ceci and the whole staff designing our invitations! Ceci helped us hone our many disparate visions (and opinions) into one gorgeous invitation suite that was glamorous yet modern. We ended up incorporating that feel throughout the rest of our wedding day decor.
