Our third wedding of 2010 is taking place on May 1st 2010, between another great couple, Tara and Mike. I have to admit, I was pretty excited when Tara and Mike came to BB10 Creative for their invitations because I am a big Brewers fan, and they are getting married at Miller Park!
That being said, the theme of this wedding is pretty obvious – baseball! Tara and Mike wanted a fun and unique baseball theme invitation, but still wanted to keep it somewhat formal for a wedding. They knew their colors were going to be red with a tan/brownish accent, and that we needed to include an actual baseball ticket from Miller Park so that their guests are able to enter the ballpark for the wedding.
The result was this semi-formal and fun invitation. We used circle-cut white cardstock with baseball stitching for the design of the 3 main cards, and the RSVP card is actually in the shape of home plate, with a perforation so guests can detach and mail the postcard! The invitation is held together with copper colored brads, and was then placed inside a bright red petal enclosure which was sealed with the monogram sticker. Side note: Ok, I kind of copied the Brewers “M” and modified it to make it an “N” to create a fun monogram for the wedding…
Tara and Mike also decided to send save-the-dates and in keeping with the baseball theme, we created actual baseball cards with a photo of the couple on the front and the wedding “stats” on the back.
I love the way the materials came together for this wedding, and it goes to show that you can still have a really fun, unconventional theme for your wedding while still keeping traditional elegance and class for the event. As always, check back on wedding invitations page of BB10 Creative to see all the final materials for the wedding including matching programs, a place card sign, and thank you cards!
