Iridescent Pastel Gem-Inspired Wedding Invitations

Aaaahhh! You already know how much I’ve been loving all things iridescent for the last year and a half, so I was beyond thrilled when these iridescent pastel gem-inspired wedding invitations from Erin of BerinMade arrived in our inbox. Crisp and modern, with fun hints of sparkle and iridescent foil, these invitations are kind of my everything!

From Erin: A few months ago, I was asked by Holly Poulter of Revelry Events to design for a wedding styled shoot she was planning. Centered around one of the biggest, hottest trends – Urban Mermaid – I just couldn’t say no! The inspiration behind this was all about the mystical and magical. Mother of pearl, mermaid scales, pastel rainbows, gemstones, shells and glass textures were all part of the initial brainstorm. It was amazing!

We wanted a clean, modern aesthetic to the stationery pieces, with a strong gemstone theme running throughout. So, setting to work, I found a handful of gem shapes which we loved and translated well into stationery pieces. Because we were only producing sample pieces, we didn’t use any gem shapes that required a curved die-cut, but only shapes which we could hand cut to bevel shape. My favorite idea was turning a square card into a diamond, as seen on the table number. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best!

We kept the typeface very clean and contemporary, and white-only, so as not to distract from the gems. Working to a strict pastel color palette, all the pieces were different “cuts” and colors. We applied an iridescent foil finish on some of the facets to give them an extra wow! I really love the finished pieces and they set the tone wonderfully for the rest of the décor.
