These romantic wedding invitations from Patricia of Fourteen-Forty feature a color that we don’t often see in wedding invitations: dusty blue! But really, what color would be more fitting for an intimate outdoor wedding in upstate New York?? These classic and romantic dusty blue wedding invitations balance traditional wording and type selections with a whimsical floral border illustration and subtle dusty blue envelope liner. Perfect for a romantic black tie affair, and just so, so lovely.
From Patricia: Monica and David had an intimate wedding in upstate New York last fall surrounded by their closest friends and family. From the stunning arrangements to Monica’s wedding gown, this outdoor wedding was an absolute dream! When we first met Monica, she wasn’t sure what to expect from the stationery process. But as we started designing together, we could definitely tell she was getting much more excited about the paper goods and how they would add so much to her wedding vision! Monica wanted something romantic, so we stuck to traditional wording but added special touches like the liner and floral border.
Together we decided on a beautiful two tone palette of dusty blue and navy, which played out in the bridesmaid dresses, linens, and most importantly Monica’s wedding ring! The entire suite was letterpress printed, which gave the blue and white palette more dimension and a luxe finish. We loved that we could work in these personal details to make a suite that was specifically for her.
Often times our clients want a map and events card whether it’s a one-sided sheet or an elaborate accordion! For Monica, we designed a great little map to pinpoint the important events. We always tell our clients that the invitation is an opportunity to get their guests excited about the weekend and a beautiful map is a great way to do this! It gives everyone a sense of place, and more practically, allows them to prepare properly for the kinds of celebrations that are going to happen.
When it comes to the day-of pieces, we usually like to bring back aspects of the client’s invitations for a more cohesive look. We love that we were able to use the beautiful garland from her main invitation in her table numbers and timeline of events!
