Pittsburgh Theme Wedding Invitation – Creative Wedding Invitations

Pittsburgh Theme Wedding Invitation

Allyson came to BB10 Creative looking for invitations to fit her Pittsburgh themed wedding. There are many cases in which clients need custom invitations because they are unable to find something “out of a box” that fits their needs. Luckily that’s exactly what we are here to solve. Every one of our invitations is customized to fit your unique wedding needs and themes.

Back to Pittsburgh… Allyson and her fiance wanted to incorporate the Pittsburgh Steelers’ team colors of black and gold (or dark yellow) into their wedding, especially since the reception was being held at Heinz field. However, they didn’t necessarily want a sports theme in the design. The final design chosen uses some iconic features of Pittsburgh on each card, displayed as hand etched drawings. The main card uses the city’s skyline, the reception card uses an image of signage at Heinz field, the directions card uses one of Pittsburgh’s many bridges. We also used a simple design ornament across  the top of the cards to incorporate some of the yellow in the design. Since Pittsburgh is the steel city, I chose one reminiscent of the time period when steel was the cities’ main industry.

The invitation was housed in a black panel pocket enclosure, printed on a clean white linen cardstock (adding some artistic value to the sketch images), and was mailed in a coordinating yellow envelope. Allyson also had a unique need for her invitation, the guests were required to present a special ticket in order to park at the stadium, so we created a coordinating ticket that was applied to the back of the invitation with a removable glue dot (I like to call them snot dots).

Overall this invitation was very simple yet very elegant and still incorporated all the themes and colors Allyson was looking to use. It is a good example of using a theme that you might not think would fit the bill for an elegant affair but can still turn out better than expected!

Let the wedding season begin!

February has been a busy month for wedding invitations at BB10 Creative. We have had the pleasure of working with 3 great couples getting married April 10, April 24 and May 1! All have very different wedding themes, and as a result, very unique invitations.

Our first wedding of 2010 takes place April 10th between two great people, Kristin and Adam. Kristin and Adam came to BB10 Creative looking for unique yet affordable invitations for their big day. They didn’t have anything particular in mind besides their colors of Teal and Fuchsia, and that they were going to play up Chicago and Milwaukee at the reception with photos of the cities on their tables. They were looking for something formal, yet modern.

The result was this simple yet unique invitation, displaying the Chicago skyline in teal with a fuschia sunset. We used a sans-serif font for the main portion of the text, and a modern and ornate script font to highlight the couples’ names. The invitation was printed on a heavy white cardstock, and the cards are held together by a fuschia “belly band” with the wedding date printed on the front. The couple decided on a teal RSVP envelope and a classic foil-lined white envelope for mailing. The reception and accommodation cards “zoom in” on details of the skyline, giving each card a different look.

We’re really excited about how this invitation has turned out – it’s a very clean, classic and elegant look! Program and place card designs are still in the works for this wedding, so check back on BB10 Creative to see how the final package all comes together.
