The last wedding of 2010 is another special one for me – two of my good friends Jessie and Tom are tying the knot on October 23rd and asked me to create their invitations and programs. Jessie and Tom are both architects and already have a great eye for art and design. And to make things even easier on me, Jessie runs her own color consulting business – Verve! Color. Design. Life. – so she had a really fun color scheme already planned out for the wedding. The colors they decided on were a sangria reddish/purple accented with charcoal gray and bright green.
Finding an enclosure to match just the right shade of sangria turned out to be a bit of a challenge, but we came pretty close with a “black raspberry” metallic. I made sure to print the true sangria color on the invitation cards so it helped to tie the pieces together. Jessie and Tom decided on using a horizontal pocket enclosure and a clean white linen cardstock. We used a bit of bright green in the design and added the charcoal accent with a very pretty metallic envelope.
The enclosures were sealed with a sticker on which we printed the name of the invitees – a great personal touch! Since we were unable to print on the dark envelopes, we sealed them on the back with a circle sticker that contained the return address and on the front created a fun mailing label using the floral element from the invitation. The floral element itself will help to tie the invitations even more into the theme of the wedding. Jessie and Tom are using high table floral centerpieces accented with sticks. At BB10 Creative we are all about helping to tie everything together for your wedding!
Overall these invitations are really fun, yet formal and I feel they are the perfect design for a fun couple like Jessie and Tom. I can’t wait to be a part of their big day coming up soon! Program designs are coming up soon so check back for pictures of the final product!
