Yes, these are my very own wedding invitations! When a wedding stationery designer gets engaged, her head quickly starts to spin with ideas and inspirations galore for wedding invitations and all the amazing wedding stationery pieces she wants to create for her big day. The pressure was on, but Ted and I came up with a suite that we believed perfectly represented us and our wedding style.
Our color palette of neutrals and metallics was the starting point, and we incorporated different shades throughout the suite to add richness and interest. Texture and subtle, sophisticated elements were added throughout using watercolor papers, letterpress blind impression (of course) and small touches of gold, copper and bronze. We mixed printing methods throughout the suite to include a letterpress invitation, a screen printed ceremony card, and digitally printed elements to accent. Inner envelopes were hand-written with white ink by the amazing Moya Minns of MM Ink with guests' first names in big, bold script. Moya also penned our names and monogram, and the key headings and accent pieces throughout the suite. And our personalized wax seal enclosed it all.
Save the dates included a tiny vellum envelope filled with confetti, and artwork created by my dad just for the occasion.
We sent weekend itinerary booklets to all of our out of town guests to allow them to plan for the celebrations, and included a welcome booklet in each guest's hotel room along with a box full of local goodies. The booklets featured a hand-sketched map of Atlanta to guide our friends and family to each of the weekend's festivities.
