These modern black, white, and gold foil wedding invitations by Meghan of And Here We Are are just seriously so awesome. I love the combination of modern sans serif type with hand lettering and illustration used throughout the invitation suite, not to mention the crisp black text with gold foil. But the patterned wrap with hand painted brush patterns under a translucent envelope? That might just be the coolest thing ever!
From Meghan: We pulled out all the stops for the invitations to Lauren and Ben’s hip NYC wedding at the Foundry in Long Island City, Queens. Our direction was “modern, black, white, and gold,” so we paired condensed sans serif type with hand-brushed patterns and illustrations. For the invitation, we combined letterpress with gold foil on double-thick Savoy in bright white. The RSVP became a true postcard, printed onto glossy stock to stand apart from the letterpress pieces; this also allowed the clients to create two different cards for recipients invited to different pre- and post-wedding events.
We had the idea to create a patterned wrap enclosed in a translucent envelope instead of a simple envelope liner, which gave the overall package a really modern feel. Inspired by our brush pattern notecards, we created a diagonal wrap of mixed hand-painted patterns, folded diagonally around the invitation.
The day-of paper goods included a plethora of items as well. We created menus, die cut escort cards, custom placemats, and used their “logo” on things like tote bags, and matchbooks.
