Spanish Style Laser Cut Invitations

Molly from Paisley Quill sent over these gorgeous wedding invitations inspired by the Old World style and iron detailing at the wedding venue in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.  The bride was particularly inspired by the architectural details and iron gates around Old San Juan, so Molly incorporated an ornate laser cut gatefold and beautiful scroll elements – all while utilizing several different printing methods throughout the invitation suite.  So pretty!

From Molly:  The wedding will take place in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, and the bride wanted her invitations to reflect that Old World, Spanish style – charming, romantic and elegant.  She especially liked the architectural iron work that you see so much of there, and that became the overall influence on the design.  The wedding will be held at Castillo San Cristobal.

The design incorporates various ironwork details.  The scrolls on the response card are actually replicas of spanish door hinges.  The scrolls on the invitation are replicas of part of a candelabra.  The patterns on the timeline enclosure are taken from Spanish tile design.

The bride is using vintage stamps and hand-lettered calligraphy for the envelopes.  The graphic on the back flap of the envelope is the same design used on the wax seal.

  1. So cool to see this, not just from a design but a production standpoint. Obviously it took a ton of research before the actual design began.

    Sometimes its so hard to pull off a 3D architectural style in the 2D medium of print, but this goes above and beyond. Amazing.

  2. Coming from someone who is currently planning a wedding in Puerto Rico and was inches from choosing the same venue I have to say these are PERFECT! The thought that went into these is amazing. To fully take a concept and weave it all the way through really shows your creativity.

    It almost makes me want to switch back to Old San Juan as my venue.

  3. Phenomenal set! Those laser die cut panels are spectacular and she chose a great sheet too. Dark sheets work best for laser die cutting because that process typically leaves “burned” marks around the cut areas. A design to be proud of.
