Beach-Inspired Wedding Invitations

Today’s second set of real wedding invitations come to us from Jocelyn Dunn, a freelance graphic designer in Los Angeles with a company called Petit Bureau that specializes in custom wedding & event invitations.  Jocelyn sent over her own wedding invitations, inspired by the beach and sun of her wedding venue in Malibu, California.  The invitations feature some of Jocelyn’s own illustrations along modern font selections for a modern and unique beach-inspired design.

From Jocelyn: This invitation was for my own wedding, set at a beach club in Malibu.  The beach, sun, and sand are each a vital part of both of our lives, so we wanted to reflect those elements in the design without using cliché beach themed motifs.  I drew the illustrated elements to add a personal touch.

The invitation set included a two-sided invitation with a Z-fold, along with a double-sided RSVP and a thank you card.  The main invitation folded out like a small poster and was intended to be something guests would tack up somewhere like on a bulletin board.

Jocelyn mixed hand drawn elements (including the sun, flowers, fish, borders, and a map) with different font selections.

The invitations were printed on Neenah Classic Laid Brushed Khaki 80# cover weight paper in orange, blue, and brown inks, with French Paper Pop Tone envelopes in Hot Fudge.
