I love it when wedding invitation suites combine mixed materials! Emily and Dianna from Fourth Year Studio created these invitations for a couple planning a wedding at an historic theatre followed by a coffee house reception. The gold ink and subtle lace blind impression letterpress pattern are perfect for a vintage-inspired wedding, while the brown paper outer envelopes help the overall suite from being too formal.
From Emily and Dianna: David and Lorie were married at the Bijou Theatre and held their wedding reception at a local coffee shop. The rich colors and textures of the theater lead to a steampunk theme that carried its way through the wedding and reception.
It was important that the invitations be rich and intriguing without being overly fussy. A vellum inner envelope was sealed with red wax to introduce another layer of texture and depth. A subtle lace pattern was pressed into the creamy cotton stock framing the gold letterpress printed text.
A brown paper bag served as the outer envelope and was sealed with gold striped washi tape. Each address was typed using a vintage typewriter.
Thanks Emily and Dianna!
