If you’re familiar with fine wedding invitations and paper products, then you’re probably familiar with Anna Griffin. While you may not know her in person, her designs are unmistakable, defined by vintage-inspired prints and gorgeous ribbons. Anna Griffin is one of our favorite designers of wedding invitations, and the first in our series of MyGatsby designer profiles.
With a degree in Environmental Design and a resume touting experience ranging from the John Harland Company to bridal goddess Vera Wang, Anna Griffin started her own company in 1994, creating one-of-a-kind, handmade wedding invitations, incorporating vellum and ribbon with antique engravings, botanical designs, and fabrics such as toile and damask. In creating her unique designs, Anna relied on her own personal sense of decorating style, drawing on influences ranging from her grandmother’s curtains to the antique botanical prints on her walls at home.
Anna’s selection of color sets her apart from the pack, with her frequent use of favored colors like celadon, platinum, and cream. As her designs reflect her passion for antique textiles and tradition, so that theme is upheld with her choice of restrained, shimmering neutrals that flatter any wedding color scheme, so your wedding invitations can coordinate with your wedding colors, or simply stand on their own with their beauty and originality.
Her restrained approach towards design makes it possible for her to incorporate beautiful ribbons into her wedding invitations, ranging from satin ribbons to elegant sheer bows. It is that sense of restraint that makes her unexpected bursts of color that much more refreshing, without becoming overpowering; witness her gorgeous hydrangea wedding invitations, a blissful explosion of blue, yellow, and dusty pink, and pink and yellow wedding invitations, featuring blooming cabbage roses.
