Every invitation tells a story, but these flowchart invitations from Three Fifteen Design take storytelling to a whole new level! Ravyn from Three Fifteen Design worked with shades of blue (a nod to the groom’s service with the Air Force) and a variety of typefaces to create this fun and modern wedding invitation suite.
From Three Fifteen Design: Ben & Kat are an amazing couple! They’ve known each other since kindergarten and have been dating since high school. After college, Ben joined the Air Force, so they’ve been spending the last few years as a long distance couple. Their story is unique and since they’ve known each other for so long, they loved the idea of incorporating a timeline into their wedding suite. The idea for the flowchart came about as we were bouncing the storytelling element around; it was a great way to make this invitation fun and interactive for their guests.
From the beginning (the save the date), I was really interested in using several different typefaces to further illustrate the ‘fun’ side of this couple. Their color palette was simple: teal, white, and, of course, Air Force blue. We used the save the date and the custom accommodations card as the color block cards to showcase the blue & teal.
We decided to keep the invitation white: even though the flowchart was fun & funky, we liked the idea of the pretty traditional invitation at the bottom. We went with a folded 5×7 invitation to once again add to that interactive element of the invitations.
Each piece of the suite was tied together by the typefaces, colors, and my favorite part: the little icon of Ban & Kat. We used it in different forms on all of the pieces. They even used it on little jam jars at the wedding. It was a way to make this suite all their own!
The response card was another play on the flowchart idea. We used images from their wedding on two different thank you cards. Everything was printed on linen paper & finished with beautiful teal envelopes from Paper Source.
