Kristin and Nathan’s wedding invitations were a blast to create. This fun couple chose a palette of beautiful jewel tones for their wedding colors and wished to incorporate all of them into the invitation design. Lots of bright colors – An intimidating prospect for this neutral-loving minimalist, but a worthy challenge.
To create a joyful and fun feel I chose a confetti theme. To elevate the design from the birthday party realm I wrapped the invites with a band of vellum and pink baker’s twine.
The suite included an invitation, a ceremony insert card and a second insert with registry information and a map on the reverse. I also created a custom wrap-around label to match.
I printed on a bright white, heavy card stock. The paper is matte, but the ink is nice and glossy giving the invitation a clean and polished look.
Those confetti dots may look simple, but they were the most difficult part of the design. Designing something to look random and unintentional is a lot harder than you would think. It was a painstaking process, but it was important that the circles didn’t look too perfect and I’m really happy with the way it turned out.
Best wishes to Kristin and Nathan!
