Amanda sent over the invitations from her wedding in Minnesota last summer – I absolutely adore the whimsical calligraphy and accordion fold layout! Amanda worked with local stationers Watermark Stationery to create an invitation that was elegant yet non-traditional, ultimately settling on a sophisticated design with a playful pop-out for the main invitation. The entire suite was letterpress printed in a single color and embellished with gorgeous calligraphy from Crystal Kluge. So pretty!
From Amanda: The invitation sets the tone for a wedding, so we wanted to show our invited guests what type of event we had planned: formal, fun, glamorous and somewhat whimsical. I worked with Gretchen Berry of Watermark Stationery in Excelsior, Minnesota to come up with a fun, unique way to present our wedding invitation. We knew we didn’t want a traditional invitation; we wanted something unique, different and fun.
Once we came up with a design that we loved, we had some of the text elements custom done by local calligrapher, Crystal Kluge. We loved the combination of the whimsical, yet formal letterpress calligraphy paired with our over-sized main invitation. The invitation was paired with a mini envelope and fold-out accordion invitation, reply and direction cards, and a dark gray outer envelope with white ink calligraphy – all tied together with a white silk ribbon. It was truly our dream wedding invitation.
