These gorgeous invitations totally had me at the sun-bleached desert color palette. Dreamy shades of peach, pink, blue, and green mixed with kraft paper? Yes, please. The modern fiesta wedding celebration invitations from Lauren at Charm & Fig feature white foil on kraft paper for the main invitation, geometric patterns, and several different paper finishes. So creative!
From Lauren: Lindy and Chris are an adorable LA couple with endless creativity: they write, produce, act, model… you name it. A few months after they became engaged, they had a very sweet and private wedding ceremony on the beautiful beaches of Malibu, California. With the blessing of the couple, the parents planned one fabulous Tex-Mex fiesta to honor the newlyweds in their home state.
Since this invitation was all about the celebration, we skipped a lot of the formalities and focused on an energetic invitation that would capture the couples’ creative personalities and playful style. Knowing a little bit about the couple, I wanted the suite to feel like it was telling a story with color, layers and texture. To illustrate this, we used a sun-bleached color palette, geometric patterns, and multiple paper finishes.
The invitation was white foil-printed on kraft paper – a simple color scheme that found a perfect balance with the complexity of the design. We were able to pick up some of the Navajo-inspired patterns on the invitation and use them throughout the suite to unify each piece. The map, directions and registry information were printed on a transparent white vellum to add another layer to the ethereal suite.
As a gift, the groom’s mother commissioned custom thank you notes for Chris and Lindy. We used the L+C cross monogram from the RSVP card and had it gold-foiled stamped on crisp white paper for an effortlessly luxe look.
A vintage-looking postcard RSVP was a must! It kept things casual and afforded us another opportunity to add gorgeous imagery – in this case, a dreamy desert scene with pops of blush, green and dusty blue hues. On the flip side, we added a place to write advice for the newlyweds, of which the answers will undoubtedly provide insight, joy and maybe a couple of laughs years to come.
