Lauren + Joe’s Red and White Carnival Wedding Invitations

Lauren and Joe’s wedding invitations are so bright and cheerful, they make me happy just looking at them!  You might remember Lauren as the designer of Emily and Matt’s awesome German beer wedding invitations, and today she’s back to share the invitations from her own wedding!  Lauren incorporated big bold pops of red along with fun stripes and patterns into her booklet style wedding invitations, complementing the vintage carnival wedding theme.  So fun!

From Lauren: Our wedding had a vintage carnival theme, so we wanted the invitations not only to reflect that but also to really create some excitement about our big day.  We came up with the idea to do booklets that had the feel of old carnival or circus programs, complete with an “Admit One” ticket as the RSVP.


The booklet format was great because it allowed us to include a lot of information (since we were requiring guests to ride buses to the venue, etc.) and to carry out the sensationalist tone we were going for.  The booklets were offset printed on Ecru White Cotton Lettra paper.  Interior pages and other elements were printed digitally on Mohawk Loop Antique Vellum in Milkweed.

To make them even more fun and interactive, guests received the invitations in a fun, moss-filled box.  The boxes took many hours and required quite the assembly line, but we’d say it was well worth it in the end!

Thanks again Lauren!
