Alexis + Jonathan

Megan Merry

Literally obsessed with our invites.
Thank you for everything!!!!
— Alexis Blaue, bride

As soon as I launched Megan + Jane, I received an email from the sweetest, most organized and enthusiastic bride-to-be. We met via FaceTime one evening to talk about what she and her fiance envisioned for their wedding.

Their colors were navy and gold – she wanted something elegant, something sparkly, and among other descriptive terms, she mentioned the Disney classic "Beauty and the Beast".

I wanted her to feel like Belle.

When she said "Beauty and the Beast," all I could think about was the shape in the bottom of Belle's ballroom gown. The shape of curtains on a theatrical stage. That shape became my inspiration.

To carry out the rest of the look, I paired a sans serif and script font. These were printed offset on a beautiful, thick navy paper stock. I matched the gold ink printed on the invites with the gold envelope. A glittery belly band and envelope liner tied the whole look together.

The Sarah Vaughan stamps at the post office couldn't have been better timed – I loved how the colors in the stamp complimented the look.

Working with these two was an absolute joy. They are spirited, fun, and so in love. It's contagious!

I couldn't be more thrilled with how their wedding invitations turned out.

Happy 1 Year Wedding Anniversary, Alexis and Jonathan!

Winter Wedding Invitations

Megan Merry

Our meetings were held via FaceTime, since the couple I worked with on designing these wedding invitations lives in Minneapolis. There they were nestled around their phone, sipping red wine and flipping through my proposed invites. I could feel the warmth, the love and the excitement they had for each other and their much anticipated wedding day. ♥

The couple's vision was simple: a cozy, romantic, rustic winter wedding. One surrounded with an intimate gathering of immediate family for their big day. (When I say it was an intimate gathering, I mean intimate. The couple only sent out T-E-N invitations.)

Their color palette was ivory and burgundy. I used a creamy ivory card stock and paired it with a shimmery grey envelope, lined with a hand-illustrated evergreen twig pattern. For a pop of color, I used a burgundy silk ribbon as a belly-band.

I hand-lettered the couples names and key information on the invitation, and hand-illustrated winter evergreens to give the piece a cozy-chic look. The invitation included a standard invite, an R.S.V.P. postcard and weekend itinerary.

Here's how it all came together:

The shimmer on the envelope reminded me of how the sun hits the snow on those beautiful winter mornings. ♥



Everything came full circle with this gorgeous bride... you can see the bridal shower invitations I designed for her and shared earlier this year here.

Wedding PARTY Invitations

Megan Merry

Exactly one year ago today some terrific friends of ours got married! I was honored to have been asked to I design their wedding PARTY invites shortly after they got engaged. The direction they provided was “colorful” and “PARTY!”…

So with a cocktail in hand, LCD Soundsystem on the stereo, and a few late evenings with Daphne Jane—BOOM! Erik and Lisa’s wedding PARTY invitations were born.

Between the size, the verbiage and bright colors—these wedding invitations are anything but traditional. But then, our friends aren't traditional either. They are some of the most fun and considerate people I know (seriously, my face usually hurts after spending a day with them from all the laughs). I am so happy to have been part of their big day, and watch their marriage blossom since. Love you guys. ♥

These large (9 x 6 inches!) invitations were digitally printed on bright white, ultra-smooth Finch cardstock. I chose to pair them with a translucent envelope so the bright colors would greet the guests right out of the mailbox. A custom return-address stamp was an additional detail, completing the final look.

Navy + Gold Bridal Shower Invitations

Megan Merry

Just a few weeks ago the sweetest bride was showered by family and friends. She’s a bit of a foodie, so the shower was centered around sharing delicious recipes and helping her stock the kitchen.

While I’m not the best in the kitchen, I was able to experiment with some ingredients to create a memorable bridal shower invitation. The bride’s wedding colors are navy and gold, so I thought it the perfect occasion to use a medium I’ve been dying to play with: SPRAY PAINT! After hand-lettering her name and parts of the instruction card, I created a stencil to spray paint gold metallic* onto the paper.

*Fun fact: Being that we’re pregnant and spray paint fumes can be harmful, my husband offered to spray painted every invite for the shower by hand. (Seriously, I'm a lucky gal.)

The end result: Absolutely stunning!

The paper used is Curious Metallics in Ice Silver, which has a luxurious shimmer look to it. These were digitally printed with navy ink, then spray painted in gold metallic by hand.

Intimate Winter Wedding Bridal Shower Invitations

Megan Merry

A few short months ago I had the pleasure of working with the most amazing mom of the most beautiful bride! She asked me to create some bridal shower invitations to accompany her daughter’s upcoming rustic-chic, intimate winter wedding. (More on her daughter's wedding later!)

These invitations were printed digitally on a thick, crisp white stock of paper and paired with a burgundy envelope, providing the elegant look the bride was after.
