Couture Invitations - Black & White Invitations

Couture Wedding Invitations - Silk and Embellished Invitations

Hello Everyone!

A big trend in Couture wedding invitations is BLACK & WHITE!
I love this classic theme made modern. At Lela New York we add a little something extra to this classic. Here is an example of one of our latest in Black & White invitations. Lela New York used silk invitation holders along with our silk invitation pouches to hold everything together.
We added a little extra sparkle with a crystal and beaded embellishment.
The couture wedding invitation was then boxed and sent out to their guests.

Pretty Silk box invitations with Butterflies!

I love when Lela New York gets to design silk box invitations for our clients wedding invitations. Donna chose to use butterflies as beautiful motifs for her wedding! Not only are they beautiful but they are rich in symbolism as well. They represent change and coming into a new stage in life, perfect for a wedding. They are also used to represent a loved one who has passed and the symbol is used to represent their presence and love. One of my favorite wedding invitations using this butterfly motif is Donna and Kerry's couture wedding invitations. Donna wanted luxury, modern, and more importantly custom invitations that reflect her, her culture and her father, who was represented with butterflies.
They also were celebrating there big day on a national big day, Independence day! Lela New York used deep reds and gold to represent her culture and graphics that represent fireworks and celebration along with a 3d Butterfly accessory that was placed inside a Silk box invitation.

Here are some pictures of these elegant, luxury couture wedding invitations that Lela New York created for Donna.
These are definitely one of my favorite silk box wedding invitations!

- Thanks Donna for letting me share your beautiful story!

Inspiration Board- before

You all keep asking so here it is.
The inspiration board that I created for the "Pretty in Pink" invitations.

Lela New York creates an inspiration board as a way to brain storm ideas to design a clients custom wedding invitations. From here we can pick and choose elements that we want to use in the design of the weeding invitation.
This particular wedding was in New York and we used the bride's beautiful couture wedding dress by Pnina Tornai for the inspiration of the graphics on the invitation.
I hand drew the lace detail that was printed on the custom invitation in silver and pink.
I loved the finish piece and Sky did too!

I hope you enjoy!

Couture Logos

A great way we at Lela New York personalize invitations is by adding a custom designed logo.
It's a modern way of having a monogram. It may include the names of our clients, their first initials and elements that are included in their wedding or part of their wedding theme.
It can include your flowers and colors as well. Here are some examples of Lela New York logos.

Wedding Cleanup

We love our wedding gowns to be clean and perfect for our big day. But every once in a while there is the accidental stain put on out pristine dress or the unfortunate bead that starts to fall off.
What shall a girl do when there's an emergency to take care of? Well I just found out about Hallak Cleaners emergency kit. And who better than a couture cleaner to take care of any little stain emergency. The kit contains 2 pre-spot formulas as well as other cool stuff like a sewing kit, adhesive straps , pins and more.
