Danielle + Paul’s Vintage-Inspired Marquee Halloween Wedding Invitations

It’s always a good day when an invitation from Kate at Wit + Delight shows up in my inbox.  Kate sent over these fabulous custom invitations that she designed for a wedding taking place on Halloween.  Danielle and Paul’s wedding reception will include a masquerade, so Kate designed an invitation inspired by the concept of a 1920s marquee and incorporating Danielle and Paul’s color palette of cream, gray, and pumpkin!

From Kate: The wedding is taking place on October 31st in the ruins of a historic factory called the Mill City Ruins, which is equal parts elegant and mysterious.  Paul and Danielle have done a great job balancing the intrigue and liveliness of Halloween without feeling kooky, or costume-y.  Their palette is mostly creams and grays, with a pop of pumpkin.


The entire evening is filled with non-traditional details – like a masquerade! – and Danielle really loved the idea of invitations inspired by a vintage marquee.  We incorporated eclectic typography and ornate shapes to reference the 1920s era.  The invitations were printed by Evolutionary Press on thick cotton stock that gives the design a really great texture.

Thanks Kate!

  1. These are so fantastic! I feel like having a halloween/masquerade type of event without the typical halloween look is SO hard to do, yet this suite is so finely composed!

  2. These are my invites!!! I got an email from my FSIL telling me that our invites were on a blog – It makes my heart happy that other people love them, and that Kate’s amazing work is being appreciated by people all over the place!!! 🙂
