Best of 2011: Neon Storybook Wedding Invitations

Since we’re on the subject of neon wedding invitations today, I thought I’d mention one additional wedding invitation suite that I actually didn’t have the chance to feature earlier in the year but is still incredibly awesome.  These fantastic storybook wedding invitations were created by Simon and Jenna of The Hungry Workshop in Australia and feature antique drop caps, a bookmark-inspired belly band, and of course bright neon pink details from the text to the matching ribbon.

From The Hungry Workshop:  We tried to capture the personalities of Jaimee & JK throughout the invitation suite.  The quirky story we wrote (with a little help from a very talented friend) is brimming with character and printed in charcoal ink, with the details of the wedding highlighted in a neon pink accent colour.  Perhaps the most striking element is the vintage drop caps, circa 1682.  We found these in an old type specimen book which we carefully re-drew, and modernised by splitting them into two plates.

The invitation is accompanied by an RSVP postcard forming the second page of the story, with a return address letterpress printed on the back.  Both pages are lovingly wrapped up with a bookmark inspired vertical belly band and matching pink ribbon.
