Vintage-Meets-Modern Floral Wedding Invitations

Charleston, South Carolina is an enchanting combination of classic Southern elegance and modern, swanky glam! Melissa of Atheneum Creative (and one of the talented members of our Designer Rolodex!) drew her inspiration from the wedding location to create these vintage-meets-modern floral wedding invitations. We’re loving the unique accordion fold layout (everything was mailed in a No. 10 envelope!), elegant gold foil text, and vintage-inspired floral illustrations of this stunning wedding invitation suite!

From MelissaThe couple’s wedding style was a mix of modern and romantic, which played well with the wedding location of Charleston, South Carolina. The bride wanted something more floral and romantic while the groom wanted something that was a little more modern, so we decided to mix the two styles together in this completely custom design. We love the contrast between the vintage feel of the flowers with the more modern feel of the invitation card.

The couple decided to get married under a large oak tree and wanted the tree to play a presence in their wedding invitations. The tree was illustrated by the bride’s brother and printed in gold foil on the wedding invitation. The ceremony location at Middleton Place is a national historic landmark and home to America’s oldest landscaped gardens, so it felt right to bring in lots of flowers as the base of the invitation design.

The invitation itself is an accordion fold card that is foil printed and mounted to a digitally-printed backing sheet with the vintage-inspired illustrated flowers. The reply envelope was printed in gold foil and the entire suite was mailed in a number 10 envelope. The colors of the greens and coral flowers were all picked up from the location and the dresses of the bridesmaids. We simply loved how this suite came together!
