For Janna and Brian’s wedding stationery, Melissa and Amy from Atheneum Creative incorporated a postcard save the date and fold-out poster wedding invitation – all with a vintage look inspired in large part by the architecture of the wedding venue. Melissa and Amy also created some really fun day-of stationery details, from ceremony programs to menus!
From Melissa + Amy: When Janna and Brian told us that they were getting married at Villa Del Largo in Austin – a place full of gorgeous arches – we knew that we wanted the venue’s architectural elements to resonate in the design. We decided to pull those arches into a wedding logo and incorporate the logo throughout the invitations and day-of materials.
Janna and Brian asked us to create a vintage look and feel for their wedding. We knew that the couple wanted to send out a postcard for their save the date, so we wanted to give the typography the vintage feel in addition to the photo on the front of the postcard.
For the invitation, Janna and Brian wanted to do something really different – and since almost all the guests are from out of town, what better way to highlight the Texas wedding venue than with a large fold-out poster invitation? We created each panel to reveal more information, including an rsvp postcard.
We also created several day-of elements, including welcome baskets, place cards and escort cards, menus, ceremony programs, and signs. The ceremony programs doubled as fans to keep guests cool during the outdoor ceremony.
Janna and Brian used one very long table for their guests; two large chalkboard signs in vintage frames directed guests to their seats, while kraft paper place card tags were tied around each silverware setting. We screen printed the menus directly onto the linen napkins.
Their welcome basket included an accordion fold welcome letter along with custom drink koozies featuring the wedding logo, hang tags for soda, and even a recipe of grandma’s strawberry bread.
Thanks Melissa + Amy!
