As I am sitting in my office writing this post, I am looking out the window to a very soggy, rainy, Seattle day. Living in Seattle all my life, I have gotten pretty used to the rain and it doesn’t normally bother me. That being said, about this time of year – when it has been raining for what feels like months and months, my mind starts to drift towards sun and warm weather.

Now, normally, these thoughts lead me towards tropical destinations but I have had a number of couples planning desert weddings over the past few years and I thought that might be a fun topic to brighten up the day!

Desert weddings are a super fun theme. There are so many fun directions you can take this – whether it is celebrating the beautiful and stark landscape, allowing the fun natural elements to take center stage or maybe just bringing in the warm, earthy colors that the desert evokes.

Here are some of my favorite desert wedding invitations that I have done over the years…

Sedona Wedding Invitations

This beautiful wedding invitation featured a custom watercolor illustration of the red rocks of the Sedona area. The colors and the soft, romantic graphics really set the tone for a luxurious get-away in the desert for these lucky wedding guests!

Mexico Wedding Invitations

I love how fun and yet romantic this succulent themed wedding invitation is. I worked with this couple to design something that would reflect the local abundance of succulents while also bringing in some softer, more romantic elements from the bridal bouquets.

Palm Springs Wedding Invitations

This pocketfold wedding invitation perfectly married the warm, desert colors of Palm Springs with the fun oasis vibe created from all of the palm trees in the area. The back of the RSVP card was a fun touch that contrasted really well with the formal elegance of the main invitation and called out the vintage rat pack vibe of Palm Springs.

Scottsdale, Arizona Wedding

This super cute, yet formal wedding invitation was so much fun to design. It was a challenge that I was happy to take on… finding just the right cactus graphic to pair with the formal and elegant invitation. The belly band was a nice touch too as it held together the inserts keeping everything nice and organized!
