Is it just me, or do you miss the days of the old-fashioned party invitation? You remember, a paper invitation that used to arrive in an actual envelope in the mail? If it was printed — a good sign — that usually meant a swanky event. Handwritten was code for low key. You’d put it on your refrigerator as a reminder. And if it was a particularly memorable party, you’d keep it there after the fact and smile every time you looked at it. As much as I love technology and using apps to make life easier, it’s kinda hard to put an Evite on your fridge. So I still love it when an invitation turns up in my mail. This week we’re looking at custom wedding invitations, definitely my favorite kind of invite to receive!
The custom wedding invitations we’re featuring this week are all from Ceci New York, renowned creators of unique and artistic invitations of all kinds. Ceci Johnson, the company’s fab founder, is a personal friend of mine. She’s a true creative genius and a successful entrepreneur — such an awesome combo! I hope you love her designs as much as I do!

Ceci New York designed this invitation and stationery for a wedding in Hawaii. (My invite must’ve gotten lost in the mail.) The lush tropical design has an almost vintage feel. And if guests felt a little too warm, they could use the program as a fan. Aloha! #TBT
