We are seriously envious of the lucky guests who received these boho glam agate-inspired wedding invitations! Designed by Melissa of Atheneum Creative, these beautiful wedding invitations were inspired by the agate motif incorporated throughout the wedding and the bride’s favorite nail polish color. So creative! The invitation suite features a custom hand painted agate-inspired design and stunning gold foil details, styled to perfection with gilded agate slices!
From Melissa: Jessica came to our first meeting with nail polish for color inspiration and tons of magazine tear sheets for décor inspiration. We often hear a lot of décor terms during our invitation design process, like rustic, elegant rustic, romantic and modern… the list can go on and on! We have worked on weddings that were boho inspired and weddings that had a glamorous aesthetic, but this was the first time we heard “boho glam” as a décor term. After this wedding I am sure we will be hearing it a lot more!
They wanted to use agate details through the entire wedding, so the invitation features a custom agate-inspired painting – of course matching Jessica’s nail polish color inspiration. The agate portion was digitally printed, then duplexed to give the invitation more weight and add color on the back, and finally hit with a layer of gold foil.
For this invitation, we visited our printer for a press check to try different shades of gold foil and see what would pop best off of the digital background. We also invited the client to be right there on press with us so she could get a feel for how the digital color was laying down and be able to pick her own gold foil. We even gave her the printing plate for the gold foil when we were done.
Jessica wanted the invitations to act as a gift in the mail to her guests, something they could not wait to open! So we packaged the invitation and reply card in a gray mailing box with gray paper and addressed each box with gold calligraphy.
