Yikes, I’m very, very far behind on blogging! There’s been a lot of new work I haven’t posted yet so watch for more new posts soon! I’m also right in the middle of updating the brand and the website, so there is lots of fun new stuff coming.
For now let’s get started by talking about these beautiful lavender and silver wedding invitations! Jessi came to BB10 Creative looking for invitations to fit with her “romantic pearl” wedding theme. She wanted a more traditional invitation and was looking to incorporate either a lace or floral pattern and used silver and a lighter purple/lavender color.
The final result was this lovely invitation that uses a very ornate floral/lace pattern with pearl graphic accents. The pattern was printed in silver and we used pops of purple to highlight Jessi and Joshua’s names along with the titles for each of the enclosure cards. I used a gothic style serif font paired with an ornate engraved style script to emphasize the formal look of the invitation. Each enclosure card title is book-ended with more pearls and underlined with a decorative horizontal rule.
The invitation is house in a silver metallic pochette enclosure and when the two triangular flaps are closed, the “A” monogram at the top of the invitation stands out. The enclosure is held closed with a translucent belly band highlighting the wedding date over the subtle floral pattern. The invitation was mailed in a matching metallic purple envelope. Metallic papers really add sparkle and shine to your invitations and they definitely stand out in the mail!
