2015 Pantone Color of the Year - Marsala

What better way to end the CRAZY 2014 season then with a little inspiration for 2015.  In the coming months we play catch up and blow up your news feeds with all the wonderful we did this year.  Why have we been so MIA?  Well you will see in the blogs to come.

For now, the color experts at Pantone have narrowed down their top 16 colors for 2015 and named Marsala -- a "naturally robust and earthy wine red" -- the color of the year for 2015. This subdued hue is in sharp contrast to the shades selected in recent years: 2014's radiant orchid, 2013's emerald, and 2012's tangerine tango. It works wonderfully as a base color for your wedding, and it can be complemented either by warm tones, like orange, yellow, or coral, or cool tones, like blue or purple. Here are some teasers of what will surely be a hit this coming season!

Rachel & Dan ~ 5.11.13

Kelly Green? Check
Lots of Clovers? Check
One realllllly Irish couple?  Double Check!
Who needs St. Patrick's Day when you have these two? We had the honor of working with Rachel to design one amazing silver, white and kelly green pocketfold invitation.  Along with that we did our infamous clover escort cards along with programs with a clover cutout in them! Sorry for the lack of quality invite and program photos, but you get the idea!

Thank You Making the Moment Photography for the lovely photos!

Courtney & Ken ~ 10.5.13

LOVE!!  Not only were Courtney & Ken by far the sweetest, nicest couple we worked with all of 2013, but they are right up there as being one of the best EVER!  We can not say enough great things about them, their kindness, their love for each other and just all the lovely that pours out of them.  You can't help but be happy when you are around them :)  We were so blessed to be able to create their wedding invitations, escort cards and table numbers.  Here are some photos to enjoy taken by the amazing Nathan & Amanda Photographers.  Visit their Blog and Facebook Page to see more photos from this October 2013 Wedding.  

What Courtney & Ken have to say about DG Invites:
"Darci was wonderful to work with! She was very patient, flexible, and creative throughout the whole process. Darci was always kind and responsive, and made our invitations an easy, happy, and beautiful part of our wedding".

Get Ready...Only 2 days until the Bridal Show!

The BIG Bridal show in Cleveland is THIS weekend!  If you are engaged or will be in the next 2 days....you can't miss this one!  It is by far the biggest and best Bridal show you can attend in the Cleveland and surrounding areas.  It will host the most vendors in any category you may be looking for.  Of course I brag about the show because we will be there, but really you should too!  It is hosted by the wonderful Today's Bride.  We are always excited about the BIG show even though for the weeks leading up to it and the day of set-up might just stress us out a little, or maybe more than a little!  After doing this show last year we had the most clients we have ever had and can only hope we go up from there in 2014. Buy your tickets online now and get $3 off admission OR contact us to get FREE tickets.  Don't miss it, this weekend January 18th from 2-8pm and 19th from 10-5pm.  Stop by and visit us at booth #263.  We will have a revamped booth just for you to check out all the lovely :)  Last year we won for best booth design for a new vendor, here is a little shot of that booth.  Hope we can pull off an award this year too!
