After sending out their seaside save the dates, Megan and Mike decided to go in a more celebratory direction for their wedding invitations. Nichole from Coral Pheasant created a vibrant design inspired by Kate Spade, champagne, and confetti. The invitation suite was letterpress printed in bright pink and gold foil – these invitations practically sparkle!
From Nichole: Megan loves Kate Spade and all things paper – a girl after my own heart! She knew right away that she wanted her wedding invitations to reflect the playful aesthetic of Kate Spade. The result was the epitome of all things fun and celebratory: champagne, chevron pattern, and confetti in shades of punchy pink and gold.
The invitation combines a playful script font with a quirky serif and gold confetti. The individual pieces are a mix of letterpress and gold foil on heavy weight cotton Lettra paper, with the main invitation edge tinted in bright pink for an extra pop of color.
The individual pieces were stacked according to size and tied with a navy silk ribbon. The topmost item was a pink coin envelope with a gold glitter wedding website card – a simple piece that delighted everyone when they opened the envelope!
In researching ideas for Megan and Mike’s invitation, I came upon a quote from Jane Austen’s Emma. It reads: “It darted through her with the speed of an arrow that Mr. Knightly must marry no one but herself!” I had already incorporated the arrow as a graphic element and the quote paired beautifully with the design with one slight modification: Mr. Knighly was replaced with the groom’s last name. It was a perfect fit! We incorporated the quote into the chevron pattern envelope liner.
