Our second wedding of the year is coming up fast in May. I recently sent out these gorgeous navy blue and green square wedding invitations for my clients Carolyn and Brandon. This happy couple came to BB10 Creative for their wedding invitations looking for something simple and elegant.
The only requirements they had were to make use of the wedding colors of navy blue, leaf green and white, and that Brandon had a strong preference for the square pocket enclosures. The resulting design incorporates just that. It is simple yet extremely elegant and exudes the feeling of spring. The light leaf green contrasted with the navy in the elegant floral design really stands out on the bright white linen cardstock.
Carolyn and Brandon chose to pair the enclosure with a matching navy envelope, so to help dress up the envelope a bit, I used a floral swirl from the design on the mailing labels on the front of the envelope, then used a bright white circle sticker on the back for the return address. Even when you utilize a darker envelope for a wedding invitation, you can still dress it up and make it look really elegant.

The fall wedding season is underway and now that all of the invitations have gone out, I’m busy following up with the wedding programs, place cards and table numbers for the upcoming events. More posts to come soon, but for now here are the details about the fifth fall wedding this year!
The fifth wedding of the fall season takes place in October between Tina and James, a fun couple who currently reside in Arizona but are planning the wedding in Wisconsin. Tina and James came to BB10 Creative with a very specific idea in mind for their invitations.
This invitation is unique because instead of using a pre-made enclosure, we ended up creating our own using a heavy cardstock, some creative cutting and ribbon! Tina and James are using navy blue and silver for their wedding colors and loved the idea of a damask patterned paper paired with silver metallic paper. We also spent time creating the perfect monogram to fit the overall look.
The final design turned out to be very elegant and ornate. We used a navy blue metallic paper as the base of the invitation and used layers of paper on the inside with the pattern, followed by a silver metallic paper, followed by the actual invitation card with the monogram. The left side of the invitation houses the three enclosure cards, tightly held in place with a gorgeous silver satin ribbon. The ribbon gets pulled through the invitation and is sealed in the front with the monogram. The whole package is mailed in a matching silver metallic envelope.
This invitation definitely stands out from the pack and I love how it all came together with the different layers of metallic and linen paper. It has great texture and color and we even added a little extra “bling” with a small jewel on top of the monogram. Even if you have a very specific idea in mind, BB10 Creative is happy to take it and run to help you create the perfect invitation for your big day.
