spring inspiration board - aqua, yellow, and gray

I can't stop swooning over this warm yellow color. It's not quite as bright as your basic yellow, but I think it's a lovely alternative to metallic gold...or even ivory. I've paired it up with an aqua color, and some cool grays in these two new invitations from our etsy store. The rest of the items have been created by members of the Etsy Wedding Team. To find additional matching items search "etsyweddingteam" on Etsy!

intimate weddings - invitations for smaller events

Over the last couple of years we've seen small weddings become a growing trend. Especially smaller ceremonies with larger receptions. For those couples looking for a way to invite people to different events we've designed invitation sets with multiple pieces to mix and match for each specific guest.

This invite set includes a larger invite for the reception, a standard size rsvp, and two smaller invitations for guests who are invited to the more intimate ceremony and dinner.

This is also a great way to invite people to a rehearsal dinner, give them information about hotel/area information, or let them know where you've registered at. For more information about pricing, designs, and sizes contact us!

izzy and the bean design heads to music city!

This spring has brought exciting changes for us here at Izzy and the Bean Design. To start with we've moved! We have relocated out of Texas and are settling down in Nashville, TN. We can not wait to be a part of the Nashville wedding community, and are excited about the opportunities here...including our first wedding fair!

Our wedding invitation store is still located on Etsy, and because we ship using flat rate boxes all of our rates will stay the same. We have also created our Facebook page which will be updated with photos and information regularly. And of course you can follow us on Twitter!

jenna and craig - plum and sage belly band

Well, you can still call this a belly band right...I guess it goes the other way? :) In any case, Jenna and Craig added a lovely DIY touch to our Leanne wedding invitation by incorporating a ribbon and square monogram to match the invite. I love the bold, solid line the ribbon creates in contrast to the thin lines of the invitation design. We also designed a custom map of Nova Scotia to be included in the set.

Thanks for the photos guys! Congratulations again!
