How fun are these black and white invitations for a modern bridal shower? Andrea from Featherpress Design was inspired by the old “April showers” adage to use a vintage umbrella as the main focus in the design. Graphic envelope liners and polka dot mailing labels – both also in black and white – helped complete the look!
From Andrea: April showers bring May flowers. In this case, an April bridal shower makes for a fun black and white design that of course includes an umbrella! Regular umbrella art just wouldn’t do. I re-drew a photograph of a vintage black & white umbrella so only the most simple of shapes would show. Stephanie’s name was also redrawn from a script typeface.
These invitations definitely set the tone for Stephanie’s bridal shower. We wanted a playful yet modern look and the actual shower will be adorned in black and white decorations.
We added drama and sophistication with black and white chevron envelope liners. We also kept the costs down by digitally printing the invitations, address labels, and envelope liners all in black and white. The envelopes are from Paper Source and labels are Avery from OfficeMax.
