Brides have been asking us for a richer paper color. One that’s deeper than our light, fresh, springtime orchid. Richer than our bright, vibrant, purple shimmer. One that’s perfect for weddings all year long.
Our answer? New eggplant paper wedding invitations! You’ll love the elegance and the versatility of this color. It looks equally beautiful with…
…shades of shimmering gold, as featured in our Eggplant Layered Invitation with Pocket. We chose a champagne shimmer back layer and added champagne shimmer enclosure cards. The gold ink makes the entire look gleam!
…a bold accent like an unexpected layer of margarita paper and a margarita ooh la color envelope. The Eggplant Layered Invitation is printed with a modern monogram and white imprint for a look that tops the trends.
How will you incorporate the new eggplant paper into your wedding? We’d love to hear your ideas!
Enjoy the new color!

• Layout MD6 – Delicate Monogram
• Espresso ink
• Mocha shimmer pocket
• A paper flower embellishment from Michaels™ — added to the circular frame instead of your initial for a traditional look that’s so romantic!
• Layout MD3 – Classic Ampersand
• Black ink
• A metal scrapbooking frame from Michaels™ — set at a jaunty angle around the monogram design to show your contemporary style!
• Layout MD4 – Two Hearts
• Black ink
• Adhesive and jeweled flower cutouts from Michaels™ — accenting the heart monogram frame with sweetness!
• Layout MD12 – Majestic Rose
• Purple ink
• Purple shimmer back layer
• Decorative punches from Michaels™ used around the edges of the top layer — for a layered paper border that’s totally unique!
• Layout MD4 – Two Hearts
• Black ink
• Patterned scrapbooking paper from Michaels™ as a back layer — for a look that’s a little wild!
Be sure to measure envelope size before creating your masterpiece.

~ Enjoy getting creative!
Choosing your wedding colors is an important step in setting the style for your celebration. Are you wondering where to start when selecting the colors of your big day? Consider these factors.
Some seasons have “built-in” colors, like browns and spice tones in autumn, pastel pink or purple in spring, red for Valentine’s Day, icy blue and silver in winter, and bold floral shades in summer. Take advantage of those seasonal colors at the time of your celebration and build your wedding around them.
Wedding in the tropics? Go with exotic colors and bright tones to make a splash. Beach wedding? The colors of the sand, sea and sky are your natural choices. Formal wedding in a traditional church? Choose rich cream, pure white and touches of silver or gold for elegance.
If you’ve fallen in love with the color of your bridesmaids’ dresses, there’s no reason you can’t choose stationery and other elements to coordinate! Even if you’re dressed in formal black and white, remember to choose a color to add a fresh “pop” (like red, green, yellow or blue) and bring style to your event.
What’s YOUR favorite color? Choose it for your wedding, no matter what time of year you’re married, no matter what your wedding location. And there’s nothing at all wrong with combining many different shades of the same color (fuchsia, light pink, coral, red, etc.) for a look that’s lush and elegant.
Once you have chosen your wedding colors, bring it into every element of your wedding! Start with invitations that introduce your color scheme and set the tone for your event. Then accent with accessories that will flow your color from the ceremony to the reception, like programs, napkins, place cards, favors and decorations. And don’t forget the finishing touches, like ribbons, rhinestones, pearls and seals.
Take a look at our Color Inspiration collage below to give you ideas for mixing, matching and coordinating colors. Then get creative and start building your colorful wedding!
We love the look of a bright color paired with black. It’s dramatic and modern! Choose Retro Posies Invitation in bubble gum pink, Mod Medallion Invitation in black and fuchsia, Elegant Filigree in black with a fuchsia pocket, Garden Trellis Invitation in fuchsia or Jean M Fuchsia Invitation Card — all will set a pretty in pink tone perfectly. Accent with satin and chiffon ribbon and pink rhinestones for elegance and just a touch of sparkling glamour!
Choose from more than 25 beautiful paper colors for your Jean M Mix and Match invitation layers enclosures and pockets. Mix and match paper layer and enclosure colors for a one-of-a-kind look. You can also choose from a variety of design colors for your Jean M Designer invitations to show your personal style.
Both Jean M Mix and Match invitations and Jean M Designer invitations allow you to choose the paper color of your pockets and envelopes. Choose solid-colored inner and outer envelopes or go with one of our unique Ooh La Color® envelopes for just a hint at your favorite shade.
