These destination wedding invitations from Made by Kara combine the groom’s modern style with the bride’s romantic sensibilities. Kara incorporated letterpress printing and white foil with a color palette inspired by the island wedding venue – Anguilla! The resulting invitation is elegant and sophisticated, with lots of beautiful subtle texture.
From Kara: When Jamie and Aaron approached me to design their wedding invitations they asked for something unique that would “marry” their individual design sensibilities (the groom has more of a modern taste while the bride’s is more romantic). They also knew that inviting guests all the way to Anguilla was a big ask, so they wanted the save the invitation materials to excite their loved ones about the unique destination.
The suite was inspired by the colors and textures of the island. The invitation arrived in a custom folder, with stacked cards outlining the details of the wedding weekend. The letterpress, blind emboss, and white foil added texture to the simple design.
The save the date took on a playful format, personalized with each guest’s name and airport code and wrapped in a ticket sleeve. This was truly a designer’s dream job — Jamie and Aaron were amazing to work with and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!
