How do you choose wedding invites when you have all of the options at your fingertips? Kathryn, our custom production manager and strategic planning lead, had a vision for her wedding but was overwhelmed with choices when it came to her invites.
Kathryn and her fiancé Terry planned their wedding in their hometown of Branson, Missouri. The festivities included a week of activities with multiple locations and events and coordinating family and friends from near and far. Naturally, their invitation needed to capture the feeling of their event and provide all of the necessary information for guests.
They settled on a square folded invite with a silk ribbon pocket to keep all of the important information in one place. They added matte gold foil stamping for a touch of luxe.
The end result is a stunning suite that touches on their dark romance wedding theme, their love for the outdoors and their personality as a couple.
The full suite features matte gold foil stamping, letterpress printing and digital accent pieces.
Hand dyed silk ribbon and a monogramed tag hold it all together.
The dark grey folder opens up to the invite mounted on the right and cards neatly tucked under the ribbon on the left.
The reply card and small enclosure card were letterpress printed on handmade seed paper, a nod to Kathryn and Terry's love for the outdoors and their naturally beautifully hometown in the Ozark mountain region.
The reply envelope was foiled stamped with matte gold foil on wine envelopes for a touch of elegance.
All of the details for the week were included in a small booklet, meant to reflect the larger invite booklet. It was also a great place to bring in the dark romance florals from the envelope liner to tie the collection together.
Guests were encouraged to plant their small enclosure card printed on seed paper as a memory of this special wedding.
The cards were designed to stack in the ribbon pocket.
The whole suite was finished inside a gorgeous envelope liner customized with florals that pulled from their wedding colors. Addresses were hand written in gold ink for a personalized touch.
