We are just in love with these autumn floral copper foil wedding invitations by Lauren of Charm & Fig, featuring luxurious blind impression letterpress printed floral details. Lauren drew her inspiration from the bride’s unabashed love of the color orange, incorporating metallic copper foil and rounding out the color palette with deep red, plum, and forest green. We’re absolutely loving the copper foil details on the RSVP envelope and that gorgeous floral envelope liner!
From Lauren: This wedding suite made me want to pull out cozy wool blankets and the spiked-apple cider! Taylor unabashedly loves orange, which was a no-brainer for her fall wedding and a not-so-secret tribute to her beloved Texas Longhorns. We ran with the idea of using lots of metallic copper, fall florals, and romantic details for this black tie wedding.
First impressions are important! The first thing guests would see when they opened the interior envelope was a floral envelope liner displaying sophisticated fall hues of orange, wine, plum, and forest green. True story: another client saw a sample of this envelope liner, grabbed it, and vowed to use the palette for her dining room renovation!
On the invitation, we started with double-ply cotton paper and had it blind letterpress printed with a bundle of botanical florals. Debi Sementelli’s Bellucia calligraphy font was printed in copper foil over the blind image and brought just the right amount of elegance and femininity to the suite. A chocolate wax seal with a custom monogram was affixed to the top and added another layer texture to the main piece. For extra thickness, the invitation was backed with Stardream’s metallic copper paper.
In order to create some balance within the suite, we opted for more simple reception and response cards, flat printed in chocolate on single-ply cotton paper to coordinate with the chocolate wax seal. The outer envelopes were addressed by Maureen Vickery of Pendance Studio. She sourced the perfect copper ink and calligraphy style to match our invitations. For the final packaging, we created a single copper bellyband with the same paper used on the back of the invitation.
The dinner plate menus were flat printed in chocolate brown with the same dogwood florals from the response envelopes, and served double duty as a place card with the name of each guest printed at the top.
By far, the response envelope was our favorite piece. It was printed in copper foil with a detailed dogwood botanical illustration and the couple’s monogram. Although it was a little tricky to foil print over the crease of the envelope, our amazing printers pulled it off and it was totally worth it. It’s kind of a secret gift to yourself to have a pretty RSVP envelopes since you’ll get gorgeous mail for weeks as the RSVPs roll in.
