Sally from la Happy created these gorgeous invitations for a destination wedding in France, along with equally beautiful announcements for those unable to attend the destination celebration. The suite combines Sally’s modern calligraphy with clean and simple text and a floral envelope liner for a hint of romance. Subtle stitched details and vintage postage were the perfect finishing touches. Love!
From Sally: Megan and Nick wanted the invitations and announcements for their July 5th destination wedding in France to have a clean, modern look with a hint of color. The invitations and announcements combine clean modern text, vintage typewriter type, and my custom modern calligraphy. We also added a vintage floral illustration to add a soft feel to the invitation suite. It was the perfect way to set the tone for a sweet, laid-back celebration of love!
The invitations and announcements were letterpress printed in charcoal gray ink on soft, bright white, extra thick cotton paper. The invitations and announcements were individually stitched with white and pink thread. The response cards were also letterpress printed onto soft, cotton paper with custom modern calligraphy, paired with a vintage typewriter font. The response envelopes were letterpress printed with the return address and paired with vintage postage.
The cotton envelopes were lined with a vintage floral pattern I created. The envelopes were calligraphed in a matching charcoal gray with a modern calligraphy style. We used vintage postage, including a stamp featuring the French flag as an ode to where the couple was married. Finally, the return addresses on the outer envelopes were letterpress printed in a blind imprint (no ink!) into the soft cotton paper.
