I will always be fond of travel-inspired wedding invitations. Â This destination wedding invitation suite from Momental Designs features both a travel theme and antique modes of travel, from old timey bicycles to hot air balloons! Â Designer Kristy Rice and her team at Momental Designs added their signature hand painted touches on top of letterpress printed text and illustration elements. Â So pretty!
From Kristy: Menden’s ideas for her wedding invitationsÂ were entirely inspired by vintage travel: hot air balloons, early bicycles, and the like.Â She also was obsessed with letterpress and our hand painted look.Â We launched into creation of the save the dates first â€“ mini booklets designed to fill guests in on all the important details for this destination wedding in Greece.
Inspired by vintage tags, the save the date booklet was all tied up with airmail-inspired baker’s twine. Â We hand painted stripes in red, white and blue inks atop the letterpress text and illustration to complete the look. Â The save the date mini-booklets made sure guests were prepared to “email away,” “enjoy your stay,” and “find your way.”
Boarding pass invitations were the perfect fit for the wedding’s travel theme. Â We added a swooping banner inviting guests to a “wedding getaway” as they slid out of each brightly striped sleeve.
The color palette was made up of chipboard materials in various shades of tan in addition to bold red, blue and crisp whites.Â Deep letterpress impressions mixed with the super thick chipboard made a big statement and had a certain sense of restrained luxury to the touch.
