After seeing Michelle and Renzo’s gold foil save the dates a few months ago, I couldn’t wait to see what the ladies of Papellerie did for the invitations – and today is the lucky day! The invitation suite brings in the blush pink, French-inspired patterns, and die cut shapes from the save the dates – along with a healthy dose of gold foil and elegant calligraphy by Grace Edmands. So pretty!
From the ladies of Papellerie: Going from what we designed for Michelle and Renzo’s save the dates, we knew we had a fun challenge ahead of us to create something even more exciting and creative for their invitation. We wanted their entire suite to evoke the feeling of French royalty. We decided to create a booklet wrapped in beautiful natural silk with their monogram gold foil stamped on the front and blush pink ribbons tying it all together.
The interior of the booklet features gold foil stamping and a custom die cut pocket. Their blush pink letterpress and gold foil invitation, featuring gorgeous calligraphy from Grace Edmands, was mounted on top of the backing. The pocket contained a die cut gold foil rehearsal dinner invitation, mimicking the shape from their save the dates, as well as the letterpress and gold foil circle reception card, and the letterpress and gold foil reply card and envelope.
We added fun stamp frames on the envelopes to tie together with the couples framed monogram, and lined the outer envelope with shimmer antique gold paper for a that great first pop of color. Grace Edmands did the envelope calligraphy as well, using gold ink on a slant.
Their day-of items were SO much fun to work on! Their welcome package was a shimmer gold euro tote bag with their monogram stamped in white foil in the center. It was filled with a custom tiered welcome letter, hangover kits, mints, and door hangers among some other items their wedding planner – Emily Moise with Keely Thorne Events – picked out for them.
Their ceremony program was gold foil on a blush pink cover with a gold foil stamped accordion folded interior. We added gold ribbons to tie to the invitation ribbon. Other items included foil stamped menus, multiple cocktail napkins, guest towels, stir sticks, table numbers, linen napkins, and fun signage as well.
