Inspired Invites from Milkfed Press

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.

Update! This contest is now closed to new entries!

  • Linda says:

    Oh this is hard- I really love both the Marchelle and Norah!

  • Melissa says:

    I am completely taken with the Zoe suite. So lovely. We’re just about to order invitations, and I love letterpress but unfortunately it’s out of our price range. *fingers crossed!!*

  • Melissa says:

    Also, the “process” page is SO cute! I love the happy dance at the end.

  • Mary C says:

    I love two suites – Athena and Christina! Both are absolutely gorgeous!

  • Vanessa E says:

    We love Amelia, it’s our wedding colour and has trees! Exactly what we were looking for all wrapped in a cute little suite.

    The Marchelle is wonderful! It’s simple and fun, yet sophisticated.

  • Molly says:

    I love the Carmen. We have been trying to incorporate small red hearts and these are perfection!

  • Stacey says:

    The Zoe is just lovely and so fun with the addition of the map! I love how the classic calligraphy is offset by the fun illustrative map of events. It’s the perfect balance for our formal brunch!

  • Sheena says:

    I absolutely, positively love the Zoe– Zoe is the perfect blend of traditional, whimsical, and elegant… simply gorgeous!

  • Kierstin Rae says:

    In the Spring of 1962 there was an article written about an army couple in San Francisco’s Lover’s Lane. The photo of the couple was epic! I mean we’ve all seen the famous sailor kiss at Time’s Square, but this photo, it exemplifies true love, respect, and bliss. What the article does not go on to say is that by that summer, the new couple were married. They went on to have three sons, move to Vegas and start a life together! 50 years later they are still in Las Vegas, they have 5 grandchildren… To this day my Papa will start to sing I left my heart in San Francisco at random, and every time we have a family breakfast I will sneak off to the memory box containing the article of how two young lovers started this family I am so very blessed to be a part of!

    My sister and I are planning a SURPRISE 50 Year Anniversary party. Yesterday I spent 6 hours attempting to customize an invitation that would do their love story justice…. But I believe that ‘Louis’ is just the one!

  • Elana says:

    I love the simple elegance of the Carmen! Exactly how I would want it.

  • Sarah says:

    Wow – tough call but Marchelle stood out for me – very classic and traditional with a ‘pop’ of modern colour for a bit of personality! Love it!
