Back for more baseball theme wedding invitations! Caitlin found an invitation I had previously created for Tara and Mike’s baseball theme wedding and wanted to customize the same type of invitation for her wedding. Caitlin and her finance (now husband) Keith are die-hard Boston Red Sox fans and were looking to incorporate as much of the teams’ look and feel into their wedding decor.
I used the same style enclosure and paper as the last baseball invitation – a red petal fold enclosure and circle cut white cardstock, however the design had been completely updated and revised for Caitlin and Keith. I used a font resembling the Red Sox team font paired with an airy sans-serif font and a brush script and applied more of a vintage design to the cards. Even the baseball seams down the side had a gradient effect applied, giving them a worn look.
The RSVP card is shaped like home plate, with a perforated edge to detach and mail the postcard back.
The invitation itself is held together with a brad at the top so you can page through the different cards.
Being a big baseball fan myself, I love creating these theme invitations and I had a great time working with Caitlin on all of the corresponding materials for the wedding to match. Don’t forget to follow BB10 Creative on Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter to see all the latest and greatest work!
Wow, I’ve really fallen behind on updating the blog recently, but I have a new batch of invitations to post about! First up is definitely out of order, but one that slipped past me and I never had the opportunity to post about.
Lauren and Brian came to BB10 Creative looking for wedding invitations that were unique to their special day. They didn’t have any very specific ideas in mind outside of knowing they wanted something a bit formal and traditional but not excessively floral, as well as having packaging that was clean cut and organized.
BB10 Creative came up with the following design that incorporated the look and feel Lauren and Brian were going for, as well as their wedding colors of a vibrant red and white. The design of the circles and thin lines is a bit modern but still feels very elegant and formal with the addition of the monogram and the script font used to accent the couples’ names.
The invitation was printed on clean white linen cardstock and then mounted on a very elegant metallic red horizontal pocket enclosure. We kept the enclosure closed using a bright white satin ribbon with a monogram seal, and then placed the whole thing in a matching red metallic mailing envelope.
Along with the invitation, we also printed a simple yet elegant wedding program to coordinate, as well as thank you cards to match. The whole package turned out beautifully. I love pairing satin ribbon with metallic cardstock and juxtaposing it with the clean matte finish of the linen paper. Not to mention metallic cardstock and envelopes really stand out in the mail!
New work to come soon including an elegant, French inspired eggplant invitation set, a “perfect pair” theme and more!
Our third wedding of 2010 is taking place on May 1st 2010, between another great couple, Tara and Mike. I have to admit, I was pretty excited when Tara and Mike came to BB10 Creative for their invitations because I am a big Brewers fan, and they are getting married at Miller Park!
That being said, the theme of this wedding is pretty obvious – baseball! Tara and Mike wanted a fun and unique baseball theme invitation, but still wanted to keep it somewhat formal for a wedding. They knew their colors were going to be red with a tan/brownish accent, and that we needed to include an actual baseball ticket from Miller Park so that their guests are able to enter the ballpark for the wedding.
The result was this semi-formal and fun invitation. We used circle-cut white cardstock with baseball stitching for the design of the 3 main cards, and the RSVP card is actually in the shape of home plate, with a perforation so guests can detach and mail the postcard! The invitation is held together with copper colored brads, and was then placed inside a bright red petal enclosure which was sealed with the monogram sticker. Side note: Ok, I kind of copied the Brewers “M” and modified it to make it an “N” to create a fun monogram for the wedding…
Tara and Mike also decided to send save-the-dates and in keeping with the baseball theme, we created actual baseball cards with a photo of the couple on the front and the wedding “stats” on the back.
I love the way the materials came together for this wedding, and it goes to show that you can still have a really fun, unconventional theme for your wedding while still keeping traditional elegance and class for the event. As always, check back on wedding invitations page of BB10 Creative to see all the final materials for the wedding including matching programs, a place card sign, and thank you cards!
