Kristen + Tim’s Hermès-Inspired Wedding Invitations and Save the Dates

Any time I hear that a couple wanted something they’d never seen before for their wedding invitations or save the dates – I know the results are bound to be good! These wedding invitations and save the dates from Melissa at Atheneum Creative are elegant and classically beautiful, but also innovative – starting with the letterpress printed SILK save the dates!


From Melissa: Kristen and Tim wanted something they had never seen before for their save the dates – always a great challenge! We letterpress printed their text on silk and layered it with a letterpress printed die cut cover with a custom pattern inspired by a Hermès scarf.



Their invitation picked up all the elements of the save the date, incorporating the silk fabric into a bellyband with a die cut logo tag.



For their wedding logo, Kristen wanted a monogram that resembled her favorite Hermès bracelet. We created a wedding logo/monogram with the letter “S” that emulated the rope pattern on her bracelet. In addition to the invitations and save the dates, the logo was used on the reception floor and ceremony backdrop.




Thanks Melissa!

    • Hi Theresa,
      Thank you for taking the time to comment! I’m going to assume you didn’t intend for your comment to be rude, but I thought I’d clarify that I don’t have a time limit on wedding invitation submissions. Invitation designers sometimes have to wait to submit a particular project for a variety of reasons – and as long as an invitation design is beautiful I see no reason not to share it with my readers. This invitation is classic, elegant, and is just as relevant for 2015 as it was for 2013 or 2014. Not at all dated in my eyes!
