Romantic Copper Foil Wedding Invitations

Happy Monday everyone! Are you ready for some truly beautiful wedding invitations with one of the most gorgeous envelope details I’ve EVER SEEN???? These romantic copper foil wedding invitations come to us from two ladies that are near and dear to my heart: Samantha and Whitney of Gus & Ruby Letterpress! Whitney designed (and printed!) these invitations for Sam’s wedding a couple summers ago, with beautiful calligraphy from Graceline, a soft and romantic color palette, and copper foil details woven throughout the suite. So pretty!

From SamanthaMy absolutely incredible business partner and best friend, Whitney, designed this custom suite for me, welcoming guests to my weekend-long wedding held outside Portland, Maine. Though the wedding was held in a refurbished barn, the event was not at all rustic and instead featured an elegant, romantic color palette of deep purples, rich raspberry, slate blue, copper, and a few blushy pinks. My overall aesthetic was inspired by a moody Vermeer still-life.

An interactive tri-fold save the date introduced guests to the event with information about the weekend. The piece was then tied with metallic twine atop a card featuring duo-tone papers (soft pink and deep plum) and a full-bleed floral pattern.

The invitation suite featured romantic, contemporary calligraphy by Jenny Sanders of Graceline Art and a classic roman font. The actual invitation featured a swath of copper foil along the bottom while other pieces used varying paper colors and small amounts of florals to convey the elegant tone. Each invitation suite was wrapped in a hand-dyed linen band, tied with metallic twine and had dried eucalyptus leaves atop them.

Weekend events cards were printed on duo-toned paper (deep plum and soft pink) and housed in small slate blue “details” envelopes featuring custom wax seal closures. All pieces were printed on a mix of double-thick 100% cotton paper and rich colored stock. As always, the pieces were lovingly letterpress printed and foil-stamped by hand on our antique presses here in NH.

The whole bundle was then housed in a deep wine-colored envelope with a soft blush liner. Delicate copper frames were foil stamped on the front of the envelope to encircle a selection of carefully curated stamps and white calligraphy finished the design.
