As much as I love to gawk at all the amazing gowns, flowers, and venues that you’ll see in an A-list wedding affair, sometimes it’s the little details the celebrities choose that prove to be the real standouts. Here are three of my favorite celebrity wedding stationery finds from 2009, and where to find a similar look for your own special day.
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s Wedding Menu
Purple-loving bride Khloe Kardashian
chose to use a lavender damask print for her wedding
menus, which were designed by Lehr and Black
. The pattern gives it a classic, more traditional feel, but the color really makes it ultra feminine and suggestive of a fairy tale event – which is exactly what the happy couple wanted. For a similar look try the Miss Haversham collection from Mr. Boddington’s Studio
, shown here in purple, but available in lots of other fabulous colors and combos.
Salma and Francois-Henri Pinault’s Wedding Menu
Nothing about Salma Hayek
’s Venice wedding weekend
was ordinary – masquerade ball anyone? So, the couple’s wedding menus (also a Lehr and Black creation) were no exception. They chose round die cut menus with black and gold hot stamping. I’m all about round menus (they really standout on the tables and work well with most table setting décor), and I just found a great design on Etsy that’s equally stunning, and very similar. These 8-inch round damask menus are from jamiekonet’s shop
, so if you like them too, pay her a visit for pricing and more details.
Fergie and Josh’s Caricature Inserts
married Josh Duhamel
in a lavish Vineyard ceremony, they chose to give out invites at the end of the wedding instead, as favors, in order to keep their special day private and paparazzi free. Inside their invites guests found a copy of this caricature of the couple
designed by Lehr and Black. (To say they’re a celebrity favorite would be an understatement -- they’re more like the premiere celebrity stationery designers!) Cute right? To get your own made, try paying Caricature King
a visit to search for an artist and see samples of other wedding caricatures they’ve done.
