There are so many things to love about these modern neon pink and yellow save the dates from Lily of Lavender & Mint! All that bright color, modern floral patterns inspired by the Otomi dresses that the bridesmaids will wear to the rehearsal dinner, and absolutely gorgeous envelopes with vintage stamps and calligraphy from Blue Eye, Brown Eye! I also love that Lily printed the save the dates to have a diamond shape appearance instead of the traditional horizontal or square shape – such a fun twist!
From Lily: It doesn’t get much better than a big New Orleans wedding and this wedding is sure to be a PARTY! While the wedding will be a traditional evening black tie event, the bride and her mother wanted a save the date that was far from traditional.
The wedding is a winter affair, so we decided to bring color to the occasion to let guests know that even though it isn’t quite time for Mardi Gras, the wedding will still be a vibrant New Orleans celebration. The bridesmaids will be wearing colorful Mexican Floral Otomi dresses for the rehearsal dinner so we used those patterns as inspiration for the save the date design. We chose pink, orange and yellow as our colors and used neon ink for the letterpress printing.
The save the date is printed in a diamond shape to skew even further from tradition. We used 3-ply stock so that the impression from the letterpress could be deep. My favorite is the confetti inspired 3-color letterpress envelope liner that shouts PARTY! when the recipients open their mail. The bride & groom are both from Louisiana but currently live in Texas and wanted an extra personal touch to the save the date. We accomplished that with a series of vintage stamps with colors that fit the suite wonderfully. The envelopes are oversized 7.5” square envelopes with incredible neon pink calligraphy from Blue Eye Brown Eye.
