Monochromatic Illustrated Botanical Wedding Invitations

These beautiful monochromatic illustrated botanical wedding invitations from the ladies of Fourteen-Forty are the perfect balance of elegant and understated. Inspired by the Hudson Valley wedding venue, the invitations feature a subtle sage green paired with pearly gold foil. With fern and flower botanical illustrations woven throughout the suite, these wedding invitations are full of traditional beauty with elegant natural touches!

From Rachel of Fourteen-Forty: Christine and John’s wedding invitations were inspired by their love for nature and their wedding venue. The wedding took place at Grasmere Farm in Rhinebeck, New York. We drew our inspiration from the simple elegance of the venue and its natural surroundings. We couldn’t resist drawing an illustration of the beautiful reception hall on the farm, which ended up as a recurring motif throughout the invitation suite. We played up the outdoor venue by adding in botanical illustrations. We incorporated ferns and flowers, which grew from the corners of the main invitation and RSVP card.

During our first design meeting it became evident that letterpress printing with some gold foil elements was the way to go. Once we decided on a lovely shade of sage green for the letterpress printing, a light and pearly gold foil seemed like the perfect complement to the very soft color palette.

We always look for ways to add an extra something special to wedding invitation suites, whether it is a wax seal, a map, calligraphy, or in this case, a belly band. It literally tied all the pieces together into one neat package and added a nice strong band of color to the suite. We love how the sage green belly band served as a wonderful finishing touch to this elegant wedding invitation suite.
