Whitney Port talks launch of exclusive bridal stationery
We know how to add a touch of celebrity to your wedding, and it's all thanks to Whitney Port.
The fashion designer and former "Hills" star teamed up with Wedding Paper Divas to deliver exclusive stationery to create six swoon-worthy styles for brides to choose from.
The launch party took place at the rooftop of the Mondrian Soho hotel, where the unveiling of Port's designs were revealed. The collection would make one believe that her childhood was filled with dreams of one day being a bride and creating all of these beautiful prints -- but that's far from the truth.
"Growing up, I wasn't that kind of girl that envisioned my wedding," Port said. "I never had that idea of a fantasy wedding, but by the time I got engaged, I thought, 'Wow, this is such an amazing thing to plan,' and that's what sparked my interest."
It was clear that her inspiration behind the stationery designs were from her clothing line, Whitney Eve. Floral prints, aztecs and bold patterns somehow blend perfectly, forming one cohesive set. "It's about color, creativity and fun. What was different, though, was picking out these really great fonts. I wanted each collection to somehow still be very different but work together. I wanted there to be something for everyone," Port said.
As far as advice for brides, Port's is spot-on.
"The most basic advice is to just stay calm, and to remember in the back of your head what you're planning. It's supposed to be one of the most amazing days of your life, so don't sweat the small stuff that, at the end of the day, you may not even remember -- and neither will your guests!"
Port's collection will be available exclusively at weddingpaperdivas.com, will be perfect for brides on a budget -- 100 invitations for less than $200 -- and will make you feel just as glamorous on your wedding day as any celeb out there.
