Back to the beach! After their destination wedding in Sarasota, FL, Josh and Jayme needed another set of invitations for their wedding reception back in their hometown of Duluth.
We decided to keep the keep the theme the same and use a photo from the wedding on the invitation. I have to toot my own horn on this one because I actually shot their wedding! Not something I normally do, but it was definitely a fun experience.
This invitation was a little more simplistic – it was one single card printed on an off-white linen cardstock and adhered to a cranberry colored gatefold enclosure. Because we had twine and a little beachgrass paper leftover from the wedding invitation, I sealed the gatefold by wrapping it in twine and sealing the ends with a starfish design over the beachgrass paper.
The RSVP postcard fit nicely inside the enclosure and we mailed the invitation in a silver metallic envelope.
And just because I took the photos, I have to share my favorite one from the wedding – seriously how cute are they?
Josh and Jayme came to BB10 Creative for invitations for their destination wedding in Sarasota, Florida. They were going to be married at a small park and have the reception at a nearby marina, so they were looking for something with a beach/marina theme, and using the colors of cranberry red, ivory and silver.
Although the final design for this invitation turned out to be fairly simple, the different layers of textured paper along with the starfish charm really help this invitation to stand out. I used a cranberry cardstock for the backing, then a layer of beachgrass paper, then a layer of silver metallic paper, followed by the invitation card itself, printed on a natural white textured cardstock.
The starfish charm is tied onto a piece of twine and was adhered between the different layers of cardstock. We included a small RSVP postcard and mailed the invitation in a silver metallic envelope.
The silver starfish charm was such a hit on the invitations that all of the women invited to the ceremony ended up putting them on silver chains to use as a necklace to surprise the bride!
A second blog post for this wedding is coming soon – as there was a second invitation sent for the wedding reception back in the couples’ hometown of Duluth, MN.
