seattle wedding invitations
Last week, I shared the inspiration for a suite of wedding invitations I designed for a summer wedding in Seattle. The invitations have been sent, replies are pouring in, and I'm excited to share with you the finished product. The bride only made a few requests for the design. She wanted something simple with either a floral or barn design (both of which would reflect
). As far as colors, she only requested green, and I added oatmeal as a neutral. Think simple, rustic, contemporary for the event, and voila! Here's what I designed...
The 65 cent stamp is a cream wedding cake with a pop of green - perfect. Don't forget the details! I designed a 2.5" square "seal" for the outside of the enclosure envelope from
. The invitation is mounted inside the enclosure using 2-sided adhesive, and a pocket holds the extra elements of the invitation suite.
The design is based on Seattle's summer flora: daisies, dahlias and crocosmia. The pocket holds a reception card (below, left), a reply card with a green envelope (below, right) and a folded details card. There will be lawn games at the reception, so the bride had the idea to include a little note on the reception card, reminding guests to consider wearing sensible shoes!
We agonized a bit over the details card, which contains loads of information: travel and hotel details, directions and a map of the area. But it's a great way to communicate those details to your guests.
