I featured the outdoors-inspired save the dates of Ilana from Sugar and Type over the summer – and I’m so excited that Ilana is back today with her wedding invitations! Ilana continued the playful outdoor vibe from the save the dates, combining modern design elements with kraft paper envelopes and plaid patterns!
From Ilana: When we started planning our wedding, we knew it’d be playful and outdoors, and it was so fun to apply that vision to our invitations and wedding stationery. We wanted the wording to be friendly, casual, and a bit silly. I used kraft paper envelopes with a custom plaid liner to match Gregg and his groomsmen’s shirts.
We definitely wanted to include a map since our ceremony was in the middle of a park and we didn’t want anyone to get lost! We included an itinerary for our out of town guests, and a list of our favorite places waiting for them in their hotel room when they arrived so they could explore the area! We really wanted a cohesive feel with our save the dates, so we took the one bike from that piece and added a second bike to symbolize our journey together.
The fun part was the text messages and phone calls we got asking “should we dress like we’re going to play with puppies in the park, or for a wedding?” We had a great and fun day and I can’t wait to share more pictures from it!
