Milwaukee Wedding Invitations – A Festa(ive) Wedding

pink and green wedding invitations

The title of this blog will make sense shortly, I promise. The next wedding invitations I’d like to showcase on the blog were a very last minute to the 2011 line up, but since it involves one of my oldest friends, I was more than happy to take on the challenge. My friend Mike and his fiancee Michelle announced their engagement in early June, and followed that up with “the date is set for July 24.”

Yikes! As an invitation designer, I am used to sending out invites 8 weeks before the wedding date, with a comfortable amount of design room built in before that. With the wedding less than 8 weeks out, we really needed to hustle on these! Luckily, Mike and Michelle were great clients who could make very fast decisions. With the wedding color pallette of light green and soft pink, we made the decision to move forward using a soft green metallic horizontal pocket enclosure with a silver mailing envelope.

The couple was looking for an invitation design that was unique and fun, not too flowery, and said “casual summer wedding” while still appearing a tad formal. The ceremony was taking place in a botanical garden, while the reception was a much more casual event, so the invitation needed to speak to both parts.

The final design incorporates a fun pink and green scroll design and an art deco-ish sans serif font paired with a fun script. The invitation was printed on a clean white linen cardstock and the enclosure was sealed with a sticker to match the design.

You may notice there is no formal “reception” card in this design, and that is because Mike and Michelle took a different approach to their celebration. They had a small private ceremony with family and decided to invite everyone to a private pavilion at Festa Italiana to celebrate their wedding. (When the groom’s middle name is Luigi, what do you expect?) As a result, we sent out separate reception-only invitations which coordinated with the design.

Although this was definitely the fastest set of invitations I have ever turned around, I’m still really pleased with the result and think it fit very well with the wedding that Mike and Michelle had planned.  Congrats to the happy couple, it was a great day!

Milwaukee Wedding Invitations – Green Tree Branch Invitations

Our next September wedding takes place on September 4th for Heather and John. This happy couple is moving quickly on their wedding, as they got engaged in April and are planning their wedding over Labor Day weekend! As a result, we had to move very quickly on the invitation process in order to get these mailed out in time, but Heather and John were great decision makers and kept the ball rolling on this!

In our initial consultation, Heather and John came to BB10 Creative looking for fun, simple and colorful invitations. Heather knew for sure she didn’t want hearts or swirly designs on the invitation but definitely wanted to incorporate her colors of bright green, orange and pink.

The final design chosen consists of a very simple yet colorful tree branch mounted on a bright green horizontal pocket enclosure. Since the wedding is in early September, we wanted to avoid a fall design so instead used the vibrant colors in the leaves to make it feel more summer-y.

The branch design spills over the coordinating cards in the pocket to create one large design when they sit assembled in the enclosure pocket. We used a bright white linen cardstock to print the cards out, and mailed the invitation in a matching green envelope. The enclosure was sealed with custom monogram sticker.

Heather and John also requested matching Thank You cards which you can see above.  Even though the timeline on this job was tight, I’m happy with the final result and think we created a really fun and still formal wedding invitation. Best wishes to Heather and John!

Up next, we’re moving backwards a little, but we’ll post about a set of July invitations that I recently completed with a very tight timeline! Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook for all the latest invitation pictures and BB10 Creative news!
