We’re loving the mix of modern type selections, gold foil details, and lasercut elements in these modern lasercut olive and gold foil wedding invitations from Lauren of Charm & Fig! The lasercut cover alludes to the outdoor summer wedding reception, while the invitation text maintains an intriguing and unique modern flair. The couple’s gold foil printed monogram is the perfect finishing touch and pulls the whole suite together!
From Lauren: For Nina and David’s wedding invitation suite, the couple wanted to create something that felt relaxed, intriguing, and welcoming to their guests. In order to honor the setting and season, a romantic outdoor summer wedding at the historic Cairnwood Estate near Philadelphia, we chose olive green, blush, and gold for the color palette with subtle visuals of olive branches.
We veered away from tradition by repeating the square shape and mixing minimalist fonts with romantic scripts. Plus, square invitations are an effortless way to differentiate your invitation from the rest of the mail!
The construction concept of the invitation started with the idea of layering matte and metallic papers that would be revealed through an olive branch window that was cut directly onto the folded invitation. The olive branch window and shimmery gold paper would the first thing guests see when they open the invitation, and it still didn’t give give away the occasion. As the pieces are opened, the invitation is fully revealed in gold foil with a modern olive branch monogram at the top.
While the invitation was the star with pretty gold foil text and the lasercut window, secondary pieces varied in texture and color but were all laser printed in charcoal gray. Neenah’s Stardream antique gold paper provided shimmery sophistication with the RSVP envelope and rehearsal dinner piece. The details card was a textured matte blush, and the invitation envelope and RSVP card was a textured matte cream to counter balance the weight of the masculine olive and antique gold. For the envelope addresses, the minimal design highlighted the vintage stamps.
Overall, I loved how the invitation was full of contradictions with color and style but still worked as a cohesive wedding invitation suite.
