Catching up on some old blog posts here! Last fall, Marc and Andrea came to BB10 Creative looking for some simple yet elegant invitations for their October wedding. They didn’t have anything too specific in mind other than wanting to incorporate their wedding colors of eggplant and light yellow, and to keep the design a mix of traditional and modern.
For Marc and Andrea’s invitations, we ended up using an elegant scroll design in eggplant and yellow and housed the invitation cards in a pretty metallic eggplant horizontal pocket enclosure. I will fully admit the eggplant enclosures do not photograph very well, but I can assure you that they really are beautiful in person! The invitation uses a semi-formal sans serif font paired with a retro script to highlight the couples’ names. The scroll design cascades down over the enclosure cards in the pocket, and the invitation was printed on a clean white linen cardstock. The invitation was mailed in a matching eggplant color envelope.
More posts to come soon from all the invitations completed in 2013, including some unique beach theme invitations, and even a fun 40th birthday party invitation!

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.
