Here’s the thing about letterpress: I LOVE IT.

Do you guys love it, too?

Today I’m bringing you guys a special deal from one of the leading letterpress invitation makers in the industry – Invitations By Dawn – that may prove hard to resist once you comprehend how significant the discount is.  High kick, woot!

Here is one reason I like Invitations By Dawn:


Here is another reason:


But you probably want to hear some more specific reasons, here they are:



But seriously folks, here’s the deal.  Invitations By Dawn has game.  They’ve been doing this whole wedding invitation thing for more than 30 years, and they get what the words stylish, chic, tasteful, fun and pretty mean, when it comes to crafting the perfect invite.  They’re also not afraid to be trendy, BUT- in the prettiest way possible.  That’s not something I can say for every invitation company that comes my way.  (And that’s why I don’t talk much about invitation companies.)  This one just has my heart.  The designs they offer are exclusive to Invitations By Dawn by the way; you won’t find them anywhere else, and they’re pretty much completely customizable.  They’re also printed on 100% cotton, heavyweight paper, making the quality ahh-mazing.



It is difficult to deny how fun neon-anything still is.  Just look at the invitation above and it’s easy to see why I am obsessed with this trend!


Ok now here’s that special offer I mentioned: Invitations By Dawn is giving Knotty Bride readers 25% off your wedding invitations, with the code KNOTTY25.  YEAH!  This offer includes their premium collections, by the way, like Letterpress and Foil-Stamped (it excludes Disney Invitations, fyi).  The offer remains valid through 8/31/14, so probably hop to it if you’re interested.

Hope you dig!  Aren’t they pretty?  DEAR GOD I LOVE ME SOME LETTERPRESS.

xo, Alison

GLITTER & TREATS | We Survived the Mayan Apocalypse! Let’s Celebrate by Inhaling Macarons and Champagne (Plus: How To Make Neon Glassware!)

Whoever’s noticed that this is NYE party inspiration, and that it’s Christmas Eve right now – you are right.  But srsly; nobody should still be trying to pull together a holiday party at this hour and from scratch.  Not to mention holding a Christmas party on Christmas Eve is like holding a wedding over Thanksgiving weekend.  You are not an animal.

Aright.  Let’s get serious.  Because I have some lovely + glitzy + tasty inspiration for your New Year’s Eve party celebration thing.  If you’re having one of those.  And if you are, and you live in Colorado, which is where we’ll be on New Year’s Eve – I love your shoes!  You look really nice today.   Oh so I hear you’re having a NYE party, is that right?  I just so happen to be in the area that night, we should talk…  {Continue reading…}

METALLIC GOLD NEON CHIC + FAMILY ISSUES SERIES | The *Only Way* to Rock a Hot Pink, Gold, Mint, Cream Wedding. Also, McPuppyPants… and I’m a little in shock.

Like WHOA.  You guys, I’m sitting in my chair, with Bambino wanting ups, me ignoring his repeated requests for ups, and Bambino releasing aggressive fart bombs immediately beneath me in retribution.  Why am I unable to enjoy his sweet, adorable overtures?  Because I’m still in awe over what just happened.  And that’s saying A LOT, because his sweet overtures look a-something a-like a-this: {Continue reading…}
