Our second wedding of 2010 is taking place April 24th. The clients, Amy and Nick, are very special to BB10 Creative, because Amy was one of my college roommates! I am very excited to be a part of their special day and can’t wait to see her walk down the aisle.
Now, on to the work! Amy came to me for invitations pretty much with a blank slate. She knew her colors were going to be brown with a tiffany blue accent, and that she wanted something more modern and chic. One of the questions I ask all of my clients is “Is there anything you definitely don’t want to see on your invitations?” Amy knew for sure that she was not a fan of floral elements on the invitations. Beyond that, it was up to the creative brain power at BB10 to come up with some unique designs!
The final design chosen is a series of interlocking brown circles, very light in the background of the invitation, with a brown and light tiffany blue border. I also used the circles as a design element with the wedding date in the corner of the invitation. In keeping with the chic and modern look, we decided on a sans-serif font for the text, and a brush script font for highlighting the couples’ names.
What I love best about this invitation besides the actual design, is the packaging. The invitation is printed on a clean white linen cardstock, and held together with very unique and fun italian paper clips. Perfect for the circle theme! The invitation was then placed inside a rich chocolate brown “half moon” enclosure, to which I added a gorgeous tiffany blue satin ribbon. To top it off, we used a square monogram on the front. I also found perfectly matching tiffany blue metallic envelopes for mailing. The whole package is absolutely stunning and perfectly matches the modern and chic look Amy was going for.
Amy loved the circle design so much, she decided to carry that theme throughout the wedding. She took my design to the cake designer to have the cake match, and is even using M&Ms for the guest gifts.
If you know of someone who is getting married and might not have any ideas in mind yet for their wedding, keep BB10 Creative in mind for invitation design. Amy and Nick’s invitations are a perfect example of the great work we can do when starting from a blank slate! And the best part is, our designs are completely unique and custom to YOUR wedding.
