Um, YES. Now this is a tropical wedding invitation! Lauren from Charm & Fig combined a bold banana leaf pattern with classic navy text and gold foil details for some destination winter wedding invitations in Southwest Florida. The banana leaf pattern makes its first appearance as a border on the die cut save the dates, then again as an envelope liner in the wedding invitations! So fun!
From Lauren: This New York bride and her fiancé were charmed by the sleepy town of Boca Grande while they were on a weekend getaway in Southwest Florida. The relaxed southern ambiance and candy-colored cottages provided the perfect setting for the couple to escape the cold and host their families to celebrate their marriage.
For the wedding stationery, we first created a classic, flat printed save the date with a bold banana leaf print and die cut notched corners. We continued the square shape throughout the wedding suite, as well as the subtle nods of Old Florida.
While this wasn’t a stereotypical beach wedding, we mixed our favorite scripts, prints and colors to achieve a modern coastal look.
For the wedding invitation, we used navy letterpress, luxurious cotton paper, touches of gold foil and a banana leaf print to create a warm and elegant suite that let guests know this event would be anything but boring. Our favorite parts are the little surprises: the banana leaf liner, the navy letterpress printed pineapple on the response envelope, and the interlocked gold monogram on the wedding invitation monogram.
