These classic invitations from designer Carina Skrobecki are timeless, elegant, and somewhat unexpected for a wedding on the beach! Carina drew her inspiration from the luxury hotel wedding venue, printing the suite in a matte silver foil for a hint of glamour. The resulting invitations perfectly complemented the white-on-white wedding and sophisticated venue.
From Carina: Michelle and Brian were married in Santa Monica, California, in a beautiful hotel venue on the beach — Casa Del Mar. Although the hotel boasts some quintessential ocean detailing, it has an overwhelming classic feel to it, and so did Michelle and Brian’s wedding. Michelle initially wanted to use a blind emboss letterpress, or some form of subtle printing that was classic, elegant, but also a bit modern. We ended up going with a “dusted silver” foil to give the invitations just a hint of glam. These translated beautifully for their white-on-white wedding with hints of silver.
Each piece was printed on thick 130# Mohawk paper, which has a surprisingly soft and toothy feel to it. The main invitation, rsvp card, and thank you cards were printed using 100% foil, while the reception card, and rehearsal dinner cards were printed in a warm gray ink. All pieces were wrapped in a deep gray belly band with their “H” monogram and tucked into silver lined envelopes.
