This invite was a true labor of love. I created all the ornamental details on this invite with careful consideration. The couple came to me with a very clear vision for their invites, wanting a very polished and refined invitation set. They also wanted a distinct monogram which could be used throughout their reception stationery including a gobo light for the dance floor. This was also the first wedding where I created a menu selections card, where the guest had three choices of entrée and were required to enter their selection on the rsvp card. The paper used was a uncoated white cover accented with a white gold envelope and champagne cigar band (not shown) and envelope liner. This is one of my favorite pieces yet!
For this couple the bride used the words modern and urban when describing what she wanted, but I could tell from her venue and the invitations she gravitated towards she had elegant and traditional choices in her wedding. I ended up using a more traditional stripe pattern mixed with a victorian floral pattern contrasted by a modern layout placing the text left aligned on the lower half on the invite. The black contrast on the ivory uncoated stock and ivory metallic envelope and cigar band made this invite feel truly classic!
