The wedding day goes by far too quickly, so I love the idea of a post-wedding party as a way for a much more relaxed bride and groom to spend additional time with friends and family. Diane from Faye & Co. created these invitations for a post-wedding lobster bake on Nantucket, complete with Diane’s signature hand lettering and illustrated nautical details. So fun!
From Diane: Madeleine and Ben wanted a Nantucket Island look to their post-wedding lobster bake party invitations, so through some fun illustration & lettering, we did just that! The tri-fold invitation was tied together with gray and white baker’s twine with a fun little tag reading “We’ve tied the knot, now let’s celebrate!” which surrounded a sailor’s knot. The navy and red color palette was a must for this lobsterfest, and really made the entire set pop.
After unfolding the invitation the guests would find a map of Nantucket Island marking the events of the weekend, the main invitation with a big old red lobster and the details, and a perforated rsvp postcard for easy tearing and sending.
On the reverse side was their return address, hand-lettered alongside of a lobster claw (made into a logo for use at the event), and custom-made return postage featuring the silhouette of Nantucket island.
Each invitation was delivered to guests with hand-addressing on the outer envelopes and beach-themed vintage postage. The flap of the envelope was sealed with a custom address label, which we also turned into a rubber stamp for Madeleine and Ben to use in the future.
