If only I’d known about these invitations last week!Â Kathryn posted this gorgeous wedding on Saturday, and I love, love the silhouette-inspired hard-bound invitation books that the couple created for their guests!Â The bride, Katie, is a stationery designer, so I happily clicked over to her stationery website, ChellÃ© Paperie, and flickr page to learn more about the invitations and Save the Dates.
From Katie and Ben’s flickr page: The invitation is a hard cover book. We printed a full bleed on this beautiful oyster colored bookcloth and flush mounted it to the hinged covers.
The invitation was an 8Â page hand-stitched signature, bound with red & white bakers twine.
The reply card is a perforated postcard. Â Each book was personalized with a bookplate for the recipient, as well asÂ a handwritten note to every guest on the last page of our book.
Some of the invitations were hand-delivered in boxes wrapped in woodgrain paper.
In addition to the post card rsvp and hand-written letter to each guest, the invitation book contained the main invitation, a map and directions, and weekend itinerary:
In addition to these gorgeous invitations, Katie also created a double-sided Save the Date poster, sent via custom mailing tubes:
Gorgeous!!Â I love the personalized details throughout the entire package â€“ and the overall design is just so, so lovely… swoon.
