When it came time to design his own save the dates, designer Jared from TENNINETEEN combined inspiration from his 1920s wedding venue with his own modern style. The result is a combination of beautiful linear patterns with vintage-inspired text and a punch of red metallic foil. So fun!
From Jared: While searching for our event space in the Kansas City area, Stephanie and I fell in love with a venue that had a 1920s feel. It has beautiful subway tile and an enormous 12-foot chandelier that centered the space. We wanted to touch on the Art Deco style in our Save the Dates, but give it a modern flair while maintaining our color palette.
Traditionally, you see quite a bit of black and gold used for this era, but we wanted to mimic the style with our colors and see where it would take us. My design style is very modern and I wanted to be sure that was apparent in the design. Thus, we adopted the “Modern Art Deco” theme.
Printed on Avon Brilliant White 100C, we first ran a pass of silver metallic ink, then punched it with a Pomegranate red foil. We had a custom stamp made that fell in line with the look and my fiancée, Stephanie, took care of all the hand-lettering on the envelopes.
I love the linear lines and geometric shapes of the Art Deco style and used that as my inspiration. There wasn’t any single piece that I drew inspiration from, but instead I dove head first into the era and soaked in all of the patterns, shapes, and lines. Since I love clean design, I made sure not to go crazy, but include just enough so you get a taste.
