Today’s tropical seafoam and gold foil save the dates were inspired by the destination wedding’s seaside venue of sunny Cabo San Lucas, Mexico! Designed by Claire of Goldie Design Co., this save the date combines traditional and elegant design elements with a beach-inspired color palette and plenty of shiny gold foil. So pretty!
From Claire: When designing this custom save the date, the bride wanted to incorporate the fun Cabo destination wedding vibe while keeping it very traditional and elegant. By using a beach-inspired color palette of teals and blues, along with pops of blush pink and gold, and gorgeous engagement photos taken at the beach where the wedding will take place, the guests are sure to get a good feel for this destination wedding!
The outer envelope is covered in beautiful navy blue calligraphy for the address, paired with beach-inspired vintage stamps – always a must! One of my favorite things about this navy blue ink is the way it has that flowing gradient effect throughout the letterforms. Upon opening the envelope, guests will find a seafoam green enclosure wrapped in a custom belly band. This belly band features a geometric pattern inspired by Mexican tiles found throughout the architecture of this destination, and topped off with a custom wedding monogram.
When opening the enclosure, you will first see the custom calligraphy save the date card printed in gold foil front and center. The design of this card was kept very simple so that the eye wasn’t pulled to one part of the enclosure only – the entire invitation flowed together in perfect beachy unison! The pocket to the right holds the gold foil printed accommodations card and an accordion style card with several of the couple’s engagement photos.
The bride had so many favorite engagement photos (I don’t blame her – I mean look at that beach!) that she asked me to design a creative way to display several of the images in addition to the one in the enclosure oval slot! So, this accordion card is what we ended up with, and it was a perfect little unique touch, especially with the wedding hashtag displayed on the back of the card!
This save the date is the perfect combination of traditional, modern, beach elegance that will surely get guests excited for this gorgeous wedding happening in summer of 2017!
