Next up on the blog we have another fun yet elegant invitation. Danielle and Dustin had chosen “The Perfect Pair” as the theme for their wedding and were looking to incorporate the colors of pear green, chocolate brown and a champagne/cream color. I absolutely love these colors together, very clean, neutral and classic!
Since champagne was the main wedding color, we first decided on using a very pretty champagne colored metallic vertical pocket enclosure. Once that was chosen, I used a bright white linen paper to pop against the soft champagne color for the invitation cards, where we used the accent colors of brown and pear green.
Danielle and Dustin chose a modern yet elegant flourish design, paired with stripes to frame the text, and a more modern script and formal sans serif font. The flourish cascades over the additional cards in the invitation pocket, and the invitation was sealed using a pear green metallic belly band and a square closure that displays the wedding date. The invitation was sent in a metallic brown mailing envelope.
More invitations coming up soon including a Pittsburgh theme, birch tree/fall theme and a classy gray and orange invitation featuring a new panel pocket enclosure!
Erin and Andy came to BB10 Creative looking for invitations with a very specific look and feel. I had previously blogged about their Save the Date here. Erin really wanted to incorporate a French, late 20’s era Edwardian style theme in her wedding and the invitations needed to fit along with that. Their colors were eggplant with accents of deep red and orange, although in the end, we ended up only using the eggplant on the invitation, which I think lent itself well to the vintage look.
The design all started with a single, detailed damask style ornament which we used to create both a monogram for the invitation as well as the background pattern. The double lines used within the design, along with an elegant Edwardian script and formal sans-serif font complete the look.
This invitation uses a beautiful eggplant metallic horizontal pocket enclosure with a left-hand pocket, which is a bit different from the enclosures we normally use. We printed the invitation on a bright white linen cardstock and housed the invitation in a matching eggplant metallic envelope.

Up next in the 2011 wedding season is a very cool vintage black and red wedding invitation. Rachel and Jacob’s wedding date is right around the corner in early October, however we started our process way back in September of 2010. Rachel came to BB10 Creative looking for fun, traditional and simple invitations with a vintage flair that would incorporate her wedding colors of black and red.
The resulting invitation uses a formal black and red embellishment designed with the look of an engraved mark on the paper. The couples’ monogram is highlighted in an art deco style font and is paired with a very 20’s style script font throughout.
The invitation is housed in a black matte vertical pocket enclosure, with the embellishment spilling over the cards in the pocket. The invitation was sealed with a coordinating red sticker with the monogram and was mailed in a very classy red metallic envelope. These really stand out in the mail! The invitation itself was printed on a clean white linen cardstock, adding to the vintage feel.
I love the final product on these invitations, and all of the coordinating materials for the wedding follow through on the vintage theme. Full designs will be posted soon on BB10 Creative!
