If you’re a bride who hasn’t picked a stationer for your invitations yet, I strongly suggest checking out Delphine (delphinepress.com). Delphine’s designer and owner, Erika Firm, creates the most beautiful flat-printed and letterpress invitations. As if letterpress wasn’t already the best thing ever–well, her designs take it to a new level of elegance and modernity.

I was inspired by her gorgeous invitation set called Charleston Stitch to create a look for a Southern afternoon wedding. As a native northerner, I may be getting in over my head here, but I have relatives in the Charleston area, and I always love their effortless style.

The Charleston Stitch invitation design has a delicate cross stitch detail, which was inspired by a Charleston-based wedding dress designer, and looks like elegant dress smocking. The invitations come in a rainbow of color choices.

I decided to go with a lady-like deep peachy-pink look to echo the color in the invitations shown above for this look. This ModCloth strapless dress has a bit of lace and intricate detail along the bodice and hem.

To complete the look, I’ve selected a tea set with a modern print as a gift and a dapper tie for the gentleman. Southern men, I’ve noticed, aren’t afraid to wear a little peachy-pink themselves, and they look great doing it.

No matter what you wear, hope y’all have a lovely time at the wedding. (Ok, the “y’all” sounds a bit awkward coming from me, but my heart is in the right place!)
