Erin and Andy came to BB10 Creative looking for invitations with a very specific look and feel. I had previously blogged about their Save the Date here. Erin really wanted to incorporate a French, late 20’s era Edwardian style theme in her wedding and the invitations needed to fit along with that. Their colors were eggplant with accents of deep red and orange, although in the end, we ended up only using the eggplant on the invitation, which I think lent itself well to the vintage look.
The design all started with a single, detailed damask style ornament which we used to create both a monogram for the invitation as well as the background pattern. The double lines used within the design, along with an elegant Edwardian script and formal sans-serif font complete the look.
This invitation uses a beautiful eggplant metallic horizontal pocket enclosure with a left-hand pocket, which is a bit different from the enclosures we normally use. We printed the invitation on a bright white linen cardstock and housed the invitation in a matching eggplant metallic envelope.
