Paisley Quill

Hand-drawn, whimsical vines inspired by an iron gate at the reception’s venue detail this one-of-a-kind invitation. With deep purple and gold accents, a matching envelope liner, and a Mad Libs-type RSVP card, this wedding suite stands out. Based in Rochester, Paisley Quill has been featured in Martha Stewart Living magazine. paisleyquill.com

 

Rock Paper Scissors 

Simple yet complex, this wedding suite is a more laid-back choice. The cardboard pieces give a relaxed feel, but are contrasted by the white, hand-written lettering, blossoming drawings, and polka dots adorning the back. Featured on The Knot and Style Me Pretty’s websites, the Ann Arbor-based company keeps budget, time, and style in mind. rockpaperscissorsshop.com

 

Alisa Bobzien Design & Stationery 

Perched on a white tree branch, a bright red cardinal adds a pop of color to the charcoal gray sky and falling snow, creating a wintery scene on a “Wintertide” invitation — just one of the unique options in the designer’s Wedding Collection. Featured on Etsy, Urban Outfitters, The Knot, and Apartment Therapy, Bobzien puts a twist on traditional wedding suites. alisabobzien.com

 

Paper & Honey

Jade watercolor leaves and navy brush strokes paired with gold lettering and accents are a subtle and beautiful alternative to typical floral invitations. Brighton-based designer Laura Huston Joseph takes your love story and crafts it into a beautiful concept, giving a personal touch with her calligraphy. paperandhoney.com

 

Madranas 

Detroit-based Madranas’ custom work is tailored to fit each client’s individuality and style. In this vibrant design, different-shaped pieces come together with a wide, geometric tie, complete with the groom’s first initials. With palm trees aglow interspersed with blocks of color, this wedding suite is modern and funky, and is sure to grab guests’ attention. madranas.com
