These modern invitations from Julie at Ten Four Paper are so fun! Julie mixed bright color with bold chevron stripes and lots of pretty typography. I’m particularly in love with the unexpected color palette of lavender and orangey-red – such a great combination!
From Julie: Leah and Jeremy are a fun couple who knew each other in high school and began dating in college at Ohio State University. Leah’s chosen color scheme included shades of purple and bright pops of orange and red-orange, and she wanted a typography-oriented aesthetic for her paper goods with fun patterns and details. They both wanted friends and family to be excited to come to the May wedding, while feeling comfortable and laid back.
Leah asked me to create a fun, modern and somewhat playful design for the save the date that incorporated the story of how they met. After the initial save the date design was completed, the rest of the invitation pieces and stationery followed suit. All of Leah and Jeremy’s materials were flat printed on pearlescent paper; a budget-friendly option for a couple that wanted fun paper goods without breaking the bank.
We chose a fun handmade lace paper wrap in lavender to hold all of the cards together in the envelope. The same lavender was used as the outer mailing envelope, with a bright orange chevron liner as a fun surprise. Little elements of arrows, banners and icons accompanied the fun typographic designs of the invitation and additional cards. We used matching wrap around labels for the addresses.
The day-of paper goods continued in the fun, modern style of the invitation suite. The program included ceremony information as well as a breakdown of the wedding party.
Guests had place cards with little icons of their food choice set atop tables numbered by years in Leah and Jeremy’s relationship. Favor cards were framed on each table noting a donation to charity in honor of Leah’s friend. Everything in the suite was completed with matching thank you notes!
