After Mother Nature dumped a few buckets of rain and snow down on us yesterday, I’m definitely craving signs of spring â€“ and that means anything floral! These wedding invitations by Kate of Blue & TheoryÂ were inspired by one of spring’s most delicate flowers: Lily of the Valley. Kate created a floral border for the invitations and the rsvp card, with a muted Earth tone color palette for the entire invitation suite.
From Kate: These invitations were inspired by a feeling of vintage romance combined with delicate Lily of the Valley. During the creation of this set, I found it very important to strike a strong balance between whimsical and traditional. I wanted to create floral illustrations that that represented the romantic and intimate feel of the upcoming wedding, while anchoring the invite with traditional and structured type.
For the color palette, Lucy and John wanted to stay on theme with Lily of the Valley with muted earth tones. It was important for the illustrations to be very pronounced without the use of bright, bold colors. For the envelopes, rather than have the addresses printed, I had a custom stamp made of the floral illustrations, as well as the return address, to enhance the personal feel and look of the invitations. Inspired by old love letters and packages sent in a time before email, I chose kraft colored envelopes as well as baker string to enhance that old-fashioned-love-letter feel.
