So many beautiful New England wedding invitations this week! This gorgeous suite comes to us from Allie Ruth Design for a wedding on Cape Cod – but with post-wedding parties taking place in THREE different cities! Allie worked with the couple to create several sets of save the dates and invitations, all with a vintage-inspired style and lots of hand lettering. So pretty!
From Allie: MacKenzie and John’s situation was a little unique, in that they were having a very small wedding on Cape Cod, with parties in three different cities to celebrate with friends afterward. So there was a lot of room in this suite for a fun mix of patterns, papers, and colors.
MacKenzie needed a save the date for the wedding itself, as well as one to go out to a larger group for the after parties. Together, we found a wonderful vintage postcard of a windmill on Cape Cod, and dressed it up with hand-lettered text and a custom postcard-inspired back. For the after party save the date, I digitally printed a simple save the date on kraft and paired it with a coral envelope.
The Cape Cod wedding invitation was hand-printed onto vintage floral handkerchiefs that MacKenzie collected. For the RSVP, we chose another vintage Cape Cod postcard.
When it came time to design the party invitations, we knew we wanted to go with a clean and simple typographic suite, bringing in a subtle pattern on the back of the cards. I chose art deco-inspired fonts and flourishes, pairing them with hand lettering and a vintage wallpaper floral that I customized to match MacKenzie’s wedding color palette.
