    I like them all! I really would like a simple style just lettering. My favortie is “Our Quill letterpress invitation features custom calligraphy by Florida artist, Monica Rachel Lima. Rounded corners and large square Arturo envelopes add to the striking impression this design always makes.”

    Love them all — SO BEAUTIFUL. If I had to pick just one, though, it would be the Carleton. Or the Petal. Or Pencil. So tough to choose!

    I love the Arboretum, as I am having a Fall barn wedding. I think I would add a second color to the design, perhaps white flowers!

    I have been eyeing the Belvedere for MONTHS now! Just so elegant and classic – exactly like we hope our wedding will be! I would love to play around with a second color, and I also think that edge coloring would really make the lace border pop!

    I love the Pencil invitation. So whimsical! I would customize the colour to match with our theme (thinking something in the purple family), and also add the envelope liners (adds a certain level of formality to it all) and round the corners. Stunning design – totally matches our personalities!

    I’d love to see if they can do the Petal design for my wedding, but with fall leaves in red and orange instead of a flower, since my wedding will be in the autumn! And fall leaves and colors will be a definite theme — it’s my favorite season.

    Oh my goodness – you expect me to pick ONE thing I like! I love the lay-out of the parsnip invitation. I might change the band to “Flourish 12″ set up in sets of two across. Think like a pair of leaves. Then if I’m feeling crazy… add “Floral 21″ to the upper-right corner and size it out so it spreads all the way across the top. AND in a perfect world – the edges would be painted in the forest green… Perfect world!

    ANTIQUITY! I love the that it is printed in my favorite font…Garamond. This invite mixes classic style with whimsy. I would change the motif colors to school bus yellow and slate to match our vintage style gray and yellow themed wedding! I would complete the invite with rounded corners and silver edge paint. So beautiful!

    I adore the Franklin and the Antiquity. My step-daughter is getting married in October and these would add so much elegance and timeliness to her wedding. We’re from Virginia, so I also love the Quill; it reminds me of Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown when I look at it. Well done, Parklife Press!

    My favorite again and again is Vignette. Its simplicity makes it both understated and elegant, and the beauty of letterpress speaks for itself without needing any other flourish or edge color. I would only change the ink to midnight to match our colors and perhaps would alternate our names and the motif’s color with a different shade of blue.

    Gosh, these are all so stunning! It’s hard to choose, but if I could have the Whiskey template (in midnight) with the script writing of Quill, and one small motif at the top or bottom…perhaps flourish09 or 10…I would be in invitation heaven!

    I like the modern shape of the Velvet Waltz. I would perhaps change the text font to Neutra and keep the Couple names in Bickham Script. A combination of traditional and modern – I also like the idea of the colored edges!

    I am obsessed with the London and Ontario (2 places close to my heart – how fitting!). Loving the painted edges and heavy paper on the Ontario – screams modern elegant event.! My venue is quite rustic so I’m definitely playing with balancing rustic and elegance (silver and candlelight) as well as modern and traditional elements. These totally reflect that! Thanks for sharing!
