Designed exclusively for Wedding Paper Divas, the collaboration is reminiscent
of fresh-off-the-runway designs debuted at Marchesa’s Spring 2014 show and
recent bridal collections. Through intricate lace detailing, gorgeous
watercolor illustrations and feminine florals, each piece in the collection
offers exquisite detailing, unique to the Marchesa brand.

“When it comes to creating gowns, we’re always driven by the fabrics, accents
and the embellishments that we love – and we let our favorite pieces from our
bridal and runway collections guide the design process for the Wedding Paper
Divas stationery collection,” said Marchesa co-founders, Georgina Chapman and
Keren Craig. “We experimented with modern touches and darker color palettes in
our recent designs, and carried this aesthetic over to the invitations as
well. We think the designs translate beautifully onto the printed page, and
we’re so excited to make our mark in the stationery world.”

The eye-catching new designs offer a variety of darker, seductive backgrounds
accented with lighter colors, highlighting a modern aesthetic with romantic
undertones that can work for a range of events, from a rustic outdoor wedding
to a more formal black-tie affair. Not limited strictly to invitations, the
suites also feature save the date cards, response cards, enclosure cards,
thank you cards and more.

Couples looking for elegance with an edge will fall in love with the bold new
suites, with designs including:

  *Night Blooms: Moody and dramatic tones, with hand-painted watercolor
    flowers and gilded stems, this design zooms in on details from an
    acclaimed Spring collection evening gown
  *Artful Floral: Hand-illustrated details in this design perfectly marry
    elegant, sophisticated typography and fanciful florals, evoking a romantic
    and timeless look
  *Breathtaking Blossoms: Also adapted from one of the Spring 2014 gowns,
    this design mixes white, pastel purple and green tones for a chic feminine

“Known for being a tastemaker, Marchesa has taken a fresh, modern approach to
wedding stationery while remaining true to their signature style,” said Janel
Wiley, Wedding Paper Divas. “The ornate, jaw-dropping designs translate
perfectly to paper, and we’re so excited to offer couples gorgeous new options
to illustrate their unique love story and punctuate their big day.”

The line was first previewed in April 2014 at New York International Bridal
