Last year when Ang and Chris were planning their chic city wedding, they wanted their stationery to reflect what was to come that day. We started the design process with their wedding colors – Black, White and hot pink. Angela loved damask has her bold pattern and we ran with it. We started with their Save the Dates that were mailed last December. Angela and Chris wanted something simple yet elegant, so we designed a heavy cardstock double-sided postcard with the couples picture from their engagement session, damask pattern and wedding information. Simple, yet perfect.
Time for the wedding stationery design process – my favorite part! I met with Angela earlier this year and started brainstorming. The couple wanted a pocketfold to keep all event information together, damask and hot pink ofcourse. I started sketched out a few ideas by incorporating the couples logo that we were to design. The end product turned out FABULOUS! The custom invitation consisted of 3 layers nestled in a black sold pocketfold. The top layer was printed on a subtle white shimmer stock in 2 color thermography (raised printing) and passed again for the damask pattern in flat. The bottom layer was hot pink and middle a ballerina pink, which we used the same color for the menu cards.’
The outer black envelope was perfectly lined with hot pink handmade hand Lokta paper completed with white hand calligraphed lettering. Quick note: Before buying all your posted, take a complete set to the post office to get weighed for the proper rate.
Christopher, man of all trades, actually made the wedding favor – yes, a groom getting DIY on us. He made homemade Pinot Grigio for all the guests and he needed labels for the bottles. We utilized the logo from the invitation and customized it for the bottles for an easy application. They were cute 2×2 stickers that fit perfectly on the glossy wine bottle.
The menu cards looked GORG, it was hard saying good-bye to these beauties – double layered cards – top layer matching entire stationery suite, including the couples logo and completed with ballerina pink satin ribbon.
Their placecards were kept simple but still incorporating the damask print and same fonts.
Their rehearsal dinner invites were double layered with matching white hot pink lined envelopes.
I was soo excited to hear that Shutterbooth was participating at the reception. The couple wanted to do something amazing with the photobooth – what can that be – well, a Shutterskin would do the trick. We designed a life size print that mounts on the photobooth itself to create a WOW factor for guests to see while striking a pose!
My favorite WOW piece had to be the custom white dance floor. We designed the black logo for the couple and guests to enjoy – I have to say the first dance on this floor was AMAZING!!!!!
I had a blast working with Angela and Christopher on their wedding stationery and my team enjoyed every minute coordinating Day of. Love you guys!!!
