Confession: paper goods are what made me really fall in love with weddings. If we’re talking pretty details, printed items are probably my favorite of all, with a special place in my heart for letterpress. One of my favorite suites ever (the Zoe suite) was designed by Victoria at Milkfed Press, and has been included in several of my inspiration boards. You may have seen Victoria’s work in Martha Stewart Weddings, but if not, let me introduce you to a few designs from Milkfed’s brand new collection of wedding stationery, “Newly Betrothed.” (See below for how to win $500 toward the Milkfed design of your choice!)
Louis (this one is my favorite!)
Aren’t they charming?! And I promise you, they’re even more delightful when you get to hold them in your hand and feel the the texture of the paper and the letterpress. And one lucky Snippet & Ink reader will win $500 toward the Milkfed Press suite of your choice!
To enter, all you need to do is head over to Milkfed Press and check out all of the Newly Betrothed designs, then come back here and leave a comment letting us know which suite is your favorite. You have until 5:00PM PST on Thursday 2/23 to leave your comment, and I’ll announce the randomly selected winner on Friday 2/24.

If you’re headed to WPPI, then you won’t want to miss the Airplanes + Blazers party on February 20th – and I’ve got a pair of tickets to give away! This year’s theme is classic 1960′s Vegas, so if you plan on attending, I thought I’d provide you with a little inspiration for your ‘do.
What is Airplanes + Blazers? In their own words: “It’s the only party at WPPI by photographers, for photographers. And that’s why we do it: for you, for us! This is our chance to be the party instead of shooting it!” So you’ll be at WPPI and you want to win those two tickets? To enter, just leave a comment here telling us your favorite style icon from the 1960′s. You have until tomorrow, 2/16/12, at 5:00PM PST to leave your comment, and I’ll announce the randomly selected winner on Friday.
Would you go fabulously retro for your wedding? Which style icon would you model your look after? From the top: Brigitte Bardot, Barbara Bouchet, Aretha Franklin, Elke Sommer, Diana Ross, Twiggy.
