Um, YES. With shiny and colorful holographic foil and a custom enamel pin keepsake, these wedding invitations are right up our alley! Designer and lettering artist Rachael Gibilterra designed these stunning modern holographic foil and enamel pin wedding invitations and save the dates for her own special day. We can’t imagine a better way of sending fun vibes to all of your guests than a wedding invitation full of holographic foil and mailed INSIDE hologram envelopes!
From Rachael: It all started with my main goal for our wedding: be different. In this social media age, and especially with Pinterest and wedding blogs, everyone is seeing and doing the same things. They’re all very pretty, but as a designer and creative, I strive to do what no one else is doing. I came across these holographic envelopes and after initially writing them off as “too flashy,” I came back around to them about a month later, still obsessed, determined to use them in our wedding stationery.
With the whole night sky concept I had for the actual stationery pieces, holographic foil printing was the obvious choice. It’s unexpected and amazing, and I couldn’t be happier with the final result! It fit perfectly into the starry night bohemian vibe I envisioned for the whole event. It embodies us as a couple. What I’ve learned so far through this process is that you should never back down from something that speaks to you because of what other people may think. If you make decisions based on things you love, it will all come together beautifully FOR YOU, which is what matters most.
The enamel pins are another unusual addition to a wedding suite, and I wanted to do something special for our save the date that was memorable and sort of interactive, but also useful and not have our names plastered all over it. This way, our guests can keep and use this pin for themselves and while it’ll remind them of us and our celebration, it’s also totally unbranded! I wanted to give them something that they could keep and use well beyond our wedding. Many friends tell me they still have our save the date on their fridge, which warms a designer’s heart.
I’m so happy with how our wedding came together, everything following in the wake of these crazy invitations. Once I followed my instincts and these actually came into existence, it helped me to visualize the rest of the wedding. We finished it off with organic, wild florals, midnight blue tuxes, blush details, and an embellished deco-inspired gown. We also had hand-dyed shibori tea towel favors and donuts for a cake! We tried to just choose things that spoke to us as a couple and be genuine in everything we did. It worked out fabulously, and it was the best day of our lives.
