  1. Our wedding date is October 24, 2015. The Niko would be a wonderful invitation for us. It’s minimal and modern, without seeming too traditional. I absolutely love the roman numeral wedding date on the enclosure.

  2. Our wedding date is December 19, 2014. We would LOVE the Nico wedding suite. We are hoping to have a modern dinner party vibe at our wedding and this would be perfect! Would add eat + celebrate on one side (as showed in home page) instead of our names.

  3. The Merritt Wedding suite is perfect! It looks like a great combination of fun yet elegant. I especially love the split rectangle design for all the cards. Our wedding is 11/7/15, Instagram @emmmgo.

  4. Our wedding day is still TBD. I love the Kaitlin invitation. It’s simple and yet timeless.

  5. Love all the designs, but my groom and I particularly love the Geoffrey suite! We are getting married May 7, 2016 in an old art deco mansion built in the 1920s so the simple yet glamorous art deco details with the subtly metallic ink of the Geoffrey would be a perfect fit for our wedding!

  6. I’ve been searching the invitation websites for something like The Merritt Suite. I’m drawn to designs that can aesthetically pull of a juxtaposition of different styles, subtleties and colors. The Merritt pulls this off perfectly. The mid-century typeset, and kraft string sealing against the oxblood, poppy, and pink faded paper, produces this combination of nostalgia, modernity and romance. The beautiful enclosure adds a clean, bright, organized uniqueness. The colors, style and presentation of Merritt would set the tone of what’s to come at our wedding. It speaks to some individual personality traits my fiance and I have and like about each other. It would go with our flowers, décor, the old typewriter guest book station we’ll have and the actual mid-century modern reception venue we just booked to celebrate in.
    Thanks for holding this fun contest!

  7. My wedding date is April 30, 2016. My fiancé is a wonderful Army officer who went to West Point. We are going to continue the military theme when we get married from the same academy’s church–uniforms, saber arch and all! The Merritt Invitation Suite has my color scheme already (coral/poppy) and the elegant print style will make including guests’ ranks on the invitations a piece of cake. I only hope that it’s chocolate!

  8. The Geoffrey is so pretty with the bronze scallops and would match our bohemian flare well! We are getting married in July but throwing a large marriage celebration on October 10th, 2015. This design would be lovely for those invites. Thank you!

  9. My wedding date is October 3, 2015 and I choose the Geoffrey Wedding Invite because of the color scheme and stylings that go well with the fonts we’ve already been using and match our kelowna winery wedding nicely.

  10. Our wedding is June 27, 2015 and I am looking for invitations right now so the timing is perfect! We are having it at the Trump Hotel in Chicago so it is a formal affair. I would love the Kaitlin Wedding Suite to compliment our wedding and we have about 70 guests total. Love love love letterpress! @brilliance13

  11. We love the Geoffrey wedding suite for its simplicity, elegance, and tasteful retro flare. It is perfect for our classic elegance cherries/owl themed wedding on 7/26/15 at the Darlington House in La Jolla, CA. We also have to print ~75 invitations so this sweepstake is perfect. @jeaniusk

  12. Our wedding date is TBD but during the summer of 2015. I would love the Hayes wedding suite. It would go perfectly with our bright summer wedding and outdoor picnic reception! @cynda_marie

  13. Hi our wedding date is Nov 6th 2015 and I love the Kaitlin Wedding Invite. It’s pretty but simple. My instagram handle is gtsweets

  14. We LOVE the NIKO Suite. It’s very simple, but beautiful…exactly how our whole day is planned out. Beautiful and simple :)
    Thanks soo much for a great giveaway!

  15. My high school sweetheart and I are FINALLY tying the knot on December 27 after over five great years! We think the Sarah Suite is absolutely beautiful! It’ll match our simple and classic wedding perfectly!

    Thank you for a wonderful giveaway!

  16. We love the Niko Suite! It’s simple, elegant, and in our color scheme, too! Our date is December 19, 2015.

    Thank you! The invitations are beautiful.

  17. Alright, it’s time to represent the guys. We can get excited about wedding stuff too, right? First, the details: Date – June 25, 2016. Instagram – @bafryer

    The invitation: handwritten font on the front, clean text on the back? Sweet. Finally an invitation that actually believes in white space.

    The RSVP card: I love the irregular shape. Also, the handwriting is way better than mine. I couldn’t replicate it if I tried.

    The envelopes: The Roman numerals are a cool touch and different than anything else I’ve seen. And we went to something like 8 weddings last year. Nobody’s envelope game is at this level. Respect.

    Overall/why the Niko is a good fit: This is, as it is for everyone else that has commented, the biggest day of our lives. These invitations will set the stage for a night we hope will be memorable, unique, and most of all, fun for our guests. Our venue, while a bit non-traditional, is nevertheless beautiful, modern (without being overly so) and clean. The Niko seems almost custom-built for it. Bottom line: the Niko is the nicest invitation I’ve come across in hours of searching and far nicer than anything we would be able to afford otherwise.

  18. Our wedding date is July 18, 2015. We love the Niko suite because it’s the perfect combination of relaxed and stylish – and when a hairstylist marries a professional wakeboarder, that’s exactly the combination that you need! Our ceremony will be in central Canada and guests will be coming from the mountains to visit my hometown in the prairies. We will be married in a burnt-down stone barn (built in the early 1900s) and the reception will be an outdoor event at my parents’ farm. @kmath118

  19. Wedding Date: 4/3/16

    Ideal Suite: Absolutely LOVE the Niko suite! We are definitely an eclectic couple yet still want a classic feel for our day. It’s fabulous and one of the most unique suites I’ve seen – and trust me, I’ve seen a lot. I am actually an event designer myself & finally planning my own wedding :).

    Thanks so much for your consideration!

  20. The Sarah suite is pretty and elegant!
    It is traditional with sophistication! Love the font and the border is pretty! I think this would look pretty as our wedding invitation! The border gives a little bit of glam to the invite!
    Our wedding is October 3, 2015!!!!
    We are going for a romantic, timeless, classic wedding with glimpses of glam.. This invitatiom suite would be pretty!
    Crossing my fingers we win :)

  21. Wedding Date: 6/14/2015

    I love the Niko Wedding Suite! I saw lots of wedding invitation because of I am a wedding planner, the letter press invitation is one of the best!! I am planning my wedding now, and do letter press invitation. I saw the Niko style, it looks simple, clean, and elegant!

    Xoxo :)

  22. I looooove the Geoffrey! It’s awesome, simple, and beautiful! My fiances name is josh. We met a couple years ago due to a neighbors cat, not to speak for another 6 months. He moved to my city, we became friends and that was basically it. I was sold on him for day 1 but so so hesitant because I knew if we dated it could be forever and it was. I cannot believe I get to marry my best friend, I am truly over the moon excited and we are gettin married in the woods in flagstaff arizona! I’m so thrilled to dance the night away under the trees and stars with my love! We are getting married June 13th!

  23. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve visited this site before but after
    looking at a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me.

    Regardless, I’m definitely pleased I came across it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back

  24. I’m obsessed with letter press and Alissa Bell Press does it SOOO well! I’d choose the Niko wedding suite. It’s simple and different (the exact two words I’ve been using to describe how we want our wedding in downtown Los Angeles to be). The Niko suite would set the stage perfectly for our loft wedding. A few friends have mentioned Alissa Bell to me, so I feel like I practically know her already ;)
