Recently, we introduced our new 2015 wedding suite designs, and, as always, the assortment is rich in process and celebrates Crane’s legacy of timeless, exquisite wedding designs. Of course, we added a handful of bells and whistles that weren’t available in previous collections and highlighted some of those below—hope you enjoy!
First, we’ve added suite names that reflect the personality of each design and hopefully will inspire brides as they go through the exciting process of choosing an invitation. For example, the Catalina suite is awash in coastal charm. Our Beach Glass paper is paired with elegantly blind embossed motifs, making it perfect for the sweetest seaside affair.
Our Alexandria suite is dressed in a 24-karat-gold gilt edge and a new duogram atop premium weight paper. A beautifully drawn monogram is the perfect way to introduce wedding guests to the (future) Mr. & Mrs. Engraved in gold and accompanied by elegant black type, this invitation is the perfect choice for the classic couple.
A stunning envelope lining takes an invitation suite from elegant to exquisite, and so we’ve added several new ones to our wedding album selection, including our Gold Stripes lining, paired here with the Deco Suite. Inspired by the glamour and sophistication of the era that inspired the Theatre des Champs-Elysees and Delano Hotel, this invitation is the perfect choice for the most nouveau of nuptials.
Layered invitations create another dimension of loveliness, and so we’ve added more of them to our collection, including the Bella suite. Blush paper paired with a flourished type in taupe makes this layered wedding invitation perfect for the hopelessly romantic couple.
Our designer also had fun designing an array of new typestyles, monograms and duograms, including the one featured in our Lily suite below. Delicate and elegant, a pearl border and blind embossed duogram add brilliant detail to this suite, making it perfect for a wedding with just the right touch of glamour.
Finally, it isn’t new, however we have have brought back our large Marquis size card after a long hiatus. For the Drake suite, a pop of peacock ink and square shape give this classic pearl white wedding invitation a contemporary touch. Pair with our Charcoal Floral envelope lining for a stylish statement.
