California, Invites & Stationery

Courtesy of Cotton Idea Studio

I'm a stationery junkie and one of my favorite shops is Cotton Idea Studio, a sweet little boutique right off the Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach, Calif. Owner Mindy Gayer has impeccable taste and carries wedding invitations from many of my favorite lines, including Elum, Mr. Boddington's Studio and Paper + Cup. Many designs are available in her online store but if you're in the area, a visit to her brick and mortar location is a must. —Heather Lee, Assistant Editor, Brides Local Magazines

Wedding Wisdom: Mindy also designs her own line of stylish custom correspondence, which always makes for a thoughtful bridesmaids gift. If you're not in the area, the stationery sets are available online—see the designs here.
