Ann and Jason were already married in a small ceremony in Mexico and came to BB10 Creative looking for some fun and unique invitations for the wedding reception they were having for family and friends back home. They wanted fun, modern and simple invitations that reflected their ceremony in Mexico and used the colors of brown and silver with tropical green accents.
The final design was a really fun and unique idea – I used a sheet of corrugated cardstock for the base of the invitation and adhered a long trifold card to the front. The folded card housed the RSVP postcard and was tied together with raffia – a great material to use when you have a tropical theme in mind!
I used a simple palm tree design for the front, paired with a somewhat whimsical/tropical script font. As you unfold the top of the invitation, the date of the event is revealed in a very modern sans-serif font, with some subtle palm trees in the background. As you continue to unfold the bottom flap, the full invitation is revealed. On the inside, I used a combination of a display font, sans-serif and script for a really unique look. I also separated the invitation sections with fun little tropical icons and framed the invitation with a brown lattice design. The RSVP postcard mimics in the invitation design with the lattice pattern and palm trees.
The invitation was mailed in a metallic brown envelope and came with a customized return address label on the back. This invitation is another fun example of how you can create something really unique and outside the “standard” cards in an envelope type of invite.
More fun invitations to come!
