Jaclyn + Brent’s Tropical Destination Wedding Invitations

Aaaahhh… the ladies of Papellerie sent over this beautiful tropical destination wedding invitation and now I can practically smell the fresh ocean air! The invitation suite combines lots of texture – whitewashed wood veneer, letterpress printed text, and both matte and metallic foil – and stunning calligraphy from Brown Linen Design. Gorgeous!


From Papellerie: Jaclyn and Brent chose Belize for their destination wedding and we knew right away we wanted to do something tropical, fun, and that would portray the relaxed feeling of a tropical beach wedding. We started by designing their monogram: a custom J and B with a fishing fly illustration to represent their love of fly fishing.


Their save the date was digitally printed photographs (taken by the couple!) with white foil on the cover and information on the accommodations in Belize. We assembled each save the date with a gold rivet and burlap tie and slipped them into customized muslin bags.


All of the calligraphy on the set was created by Abany Bauer of Brown Linen Design and fit so perfectly with our vision for this tropical invitation. The invitation itself was printed on hand painted white washed wood paper with gold foil and brown letterpress, the insert cards were all letterpress printed or foil stamped – the orange welcome card features a fun matte foil!



Their invitation suite was packaged together with brown baker’s twine and custom made fishing flies. Each set had a different and unique fly! The invitations were mailed in a box mailer with calligraphy from Abany Bauer of Brown Linen Design.


Thanks ladies!
