These wedding invitations from The Blue Envelope are so soft and romantic. Amanda from The Blue Envelope worked with bride and groom Joanie and Todd to create a linen pocket fold-out invitation for their destination wedding in South Carolina – with just a bit of lace to tie the invitation suite together. So pretty!
From Amanda: Joanie and Todd were married at the beautiful Boone Hall Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina. Joanie wanted her wedding invitations to be simple yet unique and elegant yet understated. The wedding took place on the cotton dock and the entire wedding reflected the couple’s personality, right down to the cocktail straws that guests adorned in mason jars during the ceremony.
After settling on a destination wedding on a holiday weekend, the couple decided to make it a three day event with a crawfish boil to kick off their new lives as husband and wife. As a result, the invitation suite required several different pieces, each conveying a lot of information for their guests. We wanted to come up with a way to make it all fit together in one beautiful package.
We started off using card stock as our pocket fold invitation but it needed something more… I wanted the invitations to reflect not only the couple’s personalities but the simplistic elegance of the location. We decided to use linen fabric instead of card stock and hand stitched the edges to create an invitation that unfolds into a pocket invitation. We topped it off with a lace garnish to pull in that beautiful vintage feel.
