These modern black and white save the dates are so ridiculously chic I can barely stand it. Created by the talented team of Alana and Krystal atVellum & Vogue, the save the dates feature white foil on black cotton paper on the front and a subtle blind impression pattern on the back. Absolutely stunning!
From Alana + Krystal:Â For Lauren and Derrick’s upcoming wedding in Carmel Valley, we were asked to create a save the date focused on a black and white color palette. Lauren loves stripes, so we wanted to find a creative way to incorporate this theme into her save the dates.
The front of the save the date was white foil stamped onto black cotton paperÂ for a crisp, clean look.Â We also incorporated a small olive branch element, a nod to the couple’s wedding venue which features olive trees throughout the property.
For the back of the save the date, Lauren wanted to incorporate a ticking stripe pattern that was subtle and more focused on texture.Â To achieve this effect, we created a blind emboss of a stripe pattern similar to one the couple will be using in their wedding day dÃ©cor.
The save the dates were mailed in coordinating black envelopes.Â We created wraparound address labels that were placed on the envelopes vertically, another subtle hint to Lauren & Derrick’s stripe theme. Â The newest stamp release from the USPS, a black and white rose illustration, was the perfect complement to the suite.
Thanks Alana + Krystal!
