With fall in full swing and the leaves starting to change, we just love the warm hues of today’s rustic boho wood and copper foil wedding invitations. Melissa from Atheneum Creative is always coming up with new designs and ingenious printing combinations – and we love her for it! These wedding invitations are both sleek and bohemian, while featuring rustic touches and copper foil finishes!
From Melissa: Copper on gray… no problem! Copper on white, no problem! Copper on a deep walnut wood… let’s do it! I love it when a client challenges us to try something new and to push the limits – and this invitation definitely meets that challenge!
Victoria wanted something modern, something unique, something sleek (and let’s say it.. sexy) for her invitation, all while touching on a rustic boho vibe. The invitation was printed with a mix of white and copper foil printing on the deep gray metallic paper, metallic cappuccino paper, white paper, and a walnut wood veneer. We had to test the copper on the wood to make sure it would print well, especially for a reply card, but it printed great and really ties the whole invitation suite together.
The wording of an invitation also sets the tone for the event, and we love the phrase “join us for a night full of laughter, love and celebration” used on the reception card. A reception card allows your invitation to remain more traditional while bringing in an element that is a little more fun. Because the wedding reception was held at a local brewery, we felt the reception card worked well printed on cappuccino colored paper.
Copper foil gave us the perfect amount of warmth without being super orange. It has a nice deep balance and of course it’s metallic – and who does not love metallics? It was subtle enough to give us the look we wanted on the wood, but also had just the right amount of pop to make it legible.
We love how this invitation has the perfect mix of being sophisticated and sleek with the metallic foil, but also brings a rustic touch with the wood veneer and cappuccino paper. The invitation suite was packaged with twine and a hang tag, and mailed in a dark gray envelope addressed by Anne Robin Calligraphy in white ink!
