Sigh… a wedding in the French countryside? Yes please! Melissa from Atheneum Creative sent over the beautiful bilingual invitations that she created for this rustic French wedding. Melissa rose to the bilingual challenge by incorporating different printing methods within the nature-inspired color palette. Such a gorgeous invitation suite!
From Melissa: Margaux and Fuad’s wedding took place in France earlier this summer. The gorgeous wedding location featured lush surroundings combined with rustic history. Located on the grounds is a very unique pigeon house that was just begging to be used as a design element for the wedding… which gave us our wedding logo. It’s always so much fun to start the wedding process with a logo or monogram that really has a story and gives the guest a little glimpse of what’s to come.
Our challenge was to incorporate both French and English languages as the invitations were mailed in France and the US. We decided to duplex all the cards and switch the colors – with green letterpress printing on white paper on one side and white foil printing on green paper on the other side. This gave us the look we wanted on either side of the invitation.
The color palette spoke more to the wedding venue with small touches – like the kraft paper reply envelope – that added just enough of the rustic interior to balance the invitation suite.
