Now that Spring has arrived, we’re itching to break out our hiking boots and spend a weekend exploring and enjoying nature! In the meantime, we’ll just have to gaze at these rustic and woodsy illustrated wedding invitations by Amanda of Wide Eyes Paper Co.! Don’t you just love the illustrated bear for the reply envelope address? Here’s hoping that’s the only bear we encounter anytime soon!
From Amanda: A striking watercolor scene of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains makes these invitations simply majestic. Jenny and Aaron are a hip duo that enjoys the great outdoors and wanted their rustic, quirky vibe to be reflected in all of their stationery. We were so excited to craft up a complete custom watercolor stationery suite for them. Starting with the save the date cards all the way through to the main invitation suite, we dreamed up a woodsy wonderland to announce their rustic soirée.
This invitation suite is certainly not shy of the details. Along with the custom watercolor scenery, we also illustrated a custom grizzly bear that is seen throughout the little details in this set. We intentionally illustrated this bear to creatively ensconce the sender’s address. We used this motif for the custom envelope printing for both the main invitation envelope as well as the reply envelope. Keeping the theme consistent, we also incorporated the Colorado Rocky watercolor scenery onto the envelope liners for a bit of pop and whimsy.
To enhance the natural, organic feel of the suite we printed each piece on 100 percent recyclable French Muscletone Kraft card stock. This paper lends itself to a great rustic appeal, especially paired with the nature-inspired green envelopes.
Jenny and Aaron are not the traditional type, so they opted for an illustrated way to let their guests know about some of the main attractions in the area. Instead of going with a more formal, written information card we created a custom watercolor map. We included many landmarks that are special to the couple such as their favorite Ski Lodge and the local marina Tiki Bar. (Everyone has gotta love a good Mai Tai!)
To spice the invitation suite up even more, we created a custom monogram that is seen on the wood engraved tags. These wood engraved additions are perfect for any rustic occasion and pair well with all of our woodland inspired sets.
