Back to the beach! After their destination wedding in Sarasota, FL, Josh and Jayme needed another set of invitations for their wedding reception back in their hometown of Duluth.
We decided to keep the keep the theme the same and use a photo from the wedding on the invitation. I have to toot my own horn on this one because I actually shot their wedding! Not something I normally do, but it was definitely a fun experience.
This invitation was a little more simplistic – it was one single card printed on an off-white linen cardstock and adhered to a cranberry colored gatefold enclosure. Because we had twine and a little beachgrass paper leftover from the wedding invitation, I sealed the gatefold by wrapping it in twine and sealing the ends with a starfish design over the beachgrass paper.
The RSVP postcard fit nicely inside the enclosure and we mailed the invitation in a silver metallic envelope.
And just because I took the photos, I have to share my favorite one from the wedding – seriously how cute are they?
Ann and Jason were already married in a small ceremony in Mexico and came to BB10 Creative looking for some fun and unique invitations for the wedding reception they were having for family and friends back home. They wanted fun, modern and simple invitations that reflected their ceremony in Mexico and used the colors of brown and silver with tropical green accents.
The final design was a really fun and unique idea – I used a sheet of corrugated cardstock for the base of the invitation and adhered a long trifold card to the front. The folded card housed the RSVP postcard and was tied together with raffia – a great material to use when you have a tropical theme in mind!
I used a simple palm tree design for the front, paired with a somewhat whimsical/tropical script font. As you unfold the top of the invitation, the date of the event is revealed in a very modern sans-serif font, with some subtle palm trees in the background. As you continue to unfold the bottom flap, the full invitation is revealed. On the inside, I used a combination of a display font, sans-serif and script for a really unique look. I also separated the invitation sections with fun little tropical icons and framed the invitation with a brown lattice design. The RSVP postcard mimics in the invitation design with the lattice pattern and palm trees.
The invitation was mailed in a metallic brown envelope and came with a customized return address label on the back. This invitation is another fun example of how you can create something really unique and outside the “standard” cards in an envelope type of invite.
More fun invitations to come!
