Modern Hand Lettered Wedding Invitations

I always crave color in the middle of winter, and these modern hand lettered wedding invitations from Meghan of And Here We Are definitely have color in spades! While the main invitation features playful hand lettering in crisp black and white, the enclosures feature an explosion of color with ink and watercolor floral illustrations of peonies and poppies. And yay for bright yellow envelopes! So perfect for a spring wedding!

From MeghanWhen Brittney and Scott approached me for their Memphis wedding invitations, the direction was simple: classic and clean, black and white, with pops of color. The bridal bouquet also became a point of inspiration.

The letterpress printed invitation and RSVP cards feature playful hand lettered script offset against clean and modern typography, printed in black onto double-thick bright white Savoy paper. We then digitally (flat) printed a separate reception card and a tri-fold map. Digital printing allows for more playful color and illustration, so we introduced an all-over ink and watercolor illustrated floral pattern of peonies and poppies to add color and vibrancy to the overall package.

Our custom map included several points of interest for Memphis — from art and culture, to the best BBQ and beer joints. We were able to add more pops of color through our envelope choices: the RSVPs came with magenta envelopes and the full wedding invitation suite was mailed in bright yellow envelopes. Mailing addresses were beautifully calligraphed by Mallory of Hush Lettering.
