Modern Monogram Wedding Invitations

Back in January of this year, I received an email from a former client who was in charge of planning her sister’s wedding and was looking for some creative invitations on a budget. I was very flattered that she returned to BB10 Creative for invitations!

Leah, the bride, was looking for invitations to incorporate her wedding colors of yellow and gray, with accents of horizon blue. She wanted something simple, fun and traditional and was leaning toward the idea of using a monogram design.

The final design chosen was a very simple design, using a the monogram L&S with a bold yellow stripe down the left side of the invitation. I used a modern sans-serif font with an art deco feel for the main text, and paired it with a modern script to highlight the couples names. On the accompanying cards, I added large but thin words down the side of the yellow stripe to indicate which card was which. The invitation was printed on a clean white linen cardstock and was mailed in a bright yellow matching envelope.

In order to help keep the invitations within her budget, we decided to forgo an enclosure booklet or pocket that you would normally see on a BB10 Invitation. Instead we used a single sheet of charcoal gray cardstock and adhered the invitation card to the front, also concealing the horizon blue ribbon behind it. Then on the other side of the gray cardstock, we placed the remaining 3 invitation cards – directions, reception and an RSVP postcard – and secured them by tying a knot with the blue ribbon.

This was a unique way to keep the invitation together without the use of an enclosure and allows for an overall cleaner presentation versus placing 4 individual cards into an envelope. One of my favorite things about this job is coming up with unique ways to create wedding invitations that not only reflect the personality and tone of my clients’ wedding day but also to help them stay under budget!

Milwaukee Wedding Invitations – Classic Wedding Invitation Design

The fourth wedding of the fall season takes place in October between another great couple, Kari and Ed. Kari and Ed came to BB10 Creative looking for a unique invitation for their wedding, using royal blue as the main color. This turned out to be more of a challenge that I thought, because there is not a lot of availability for royal blue enclosures. However we were able to work around it and instead ended up using a soft off-white enclosure with heavy bands of royal blue in the design.

The design that Kari and Ed chose is a very simple and classic design, with an elegant border design and monogram. We used a more traditional serif font paired with a flowing script to highlight the couples’ names. This enclosure is sealed using a royal blue paper “sash” around the middle with a monogram seal. Both the paper and the envelopes used are made from a classic off-white linen paper, which adds a nice texture to the final package.

This invitation set is a good example of how we are still able to incorporate unique colors into an invitation design when there may not be enclosures or paper to match. I love the simplicity and elegance of this invitation, the royal blue and off white together look very formal and classic! Program designs are still in the works for this wedding, so check back on BB10 Creative to see how the final package all comes together.

No ideas? No problem!

Our second wedding of 2010 is taking place April 24th. The clients, Amy and Nick, are very special to BB10 Creative, because Amy was one of my college roommates! I am very excited to be a part of their special day and can’t wait to see her walk down the aisle.

Now, on to the work! Amy came to me for invitations pretty much with a blank slate. She knew her colors were going to be brown with a tiffany blue accent, and that she wanted something more modern and chic. One of the questions I ask all of my clients is “Is there anything you definitely don’t want to see on your invitations?” Amy knew for sure that she was not a fan of floral elements on the invitations. Beyond that, it was up to the creative brain power at BB10 to come up with some unique designs!

The final design chosen is a series of interlocking brown circles, very light in the background of the invitation, with a brown and light tiffany blue border. I also used the circles as a design element with the wedding date in the corner of the invitation. In keeping with the chic and modern look, we decided on a sans-serif font for the text, and a brush script font for highlighting the couples’ names.

What I love best about this invitation besides the actual design, is the packaging. The invitation is printed on a clean white linen cardstock, and held together with very unique and fun italian paper clips. Perfect for the circle theme! The invitation was then placed inside a rich chocolate brown “half moon” enclosure, to which I added a gorgeous tiffany blue satin ribbon. To top it off, we used a square monogram on the front. I also found perfectly matching tiffany blue metallic envelopes for mailing. The whole package is absolutely stunning and perfectly matches the modern and chic look Amy was going for.

Amy loved the circle design so much, she decided to carry that theme throughout the wedding. She took my design to the cake designer to have the cake match, and is even using M&Ms for the guest gifts.

Program, place card and thank you card designs are still in the works for this wedding, so be sure to check out our samples on BB10 Creative to see how the design all comes together!

If you know of someone who is getting married and might not have any ideas in mind yet for their wedding, keep BB10 Creative in mind for invitation design. Amy and Nick’s invitations are a perfect example of the great work we can do when starting from a blank slate! And the best part is, our designs are completely unique and custom to YOUR wedding.
