These wedding invitations from Sarah at Foglio Press combine classic elegance with Spring garden-inspired details and a bit of Southern Charm. Sounds like the perfect combination to me!
From Sarah: Elizabeth and Ricky’s garden-style wedding was a classic and elegant affair, with a hint of Southern charm. Their stationery suite design was inspired by the lush Spring florals used throughout their reception, and the trellis patterns found throughout the decor. With its understated style and gorgeously printed details, this suite quickly became one of my personal all-time favorites to date!
In order to reflect the couple’s classic yet natural style, we combined a traditional serif font with a handwriting inspired script, and created a simple monogram to carry from the save the dates through to their wedding day stationery pieces. The mix of pattern, texture and borders throughout each piece of the suite added interest and depth to an otherwise simple and minimal design style.
The groom was in favor of a photo magnet style save the date, but the bride wanted something more traditional. As a compromise, we printed the couple’s engagement portrait (including their favorite four-legged companion!) onto a wallet-sized magnet, and adhered the magnet to a more traditional printed save the date. The magnet could easily be removed from the thick paper backing as a memento, keeping the printed save the date in tact.
For the wedding invitation suite, it was all about elegance and high quality printing and materials. The invitation suite was letterpress printed for us by Mama’s Sauce on Crane’s Lettra – we used double thick, 220# stock for the main invitation to get the most out of the rich blind impression of the couple’s signature trellis pattern and monogram. The text and additional suite elements were printed in an antique gold ink, with simple garden-inspired printers ornaments scattered throughout. Finishing touches included an organic feeling, dupioni silk ribbon band in lush evergreen, and handmade paper envelope liner with a hint of gold shimmer.
