Illustrated Fold-Out Watercolor Wedding Invitations

I always think it’s fun to experiment with non-traditional wedding invitation layouts. These four-panel illustrated fold-out watercolor wedding invitations from Designer Rolodex member Amanda of Wide Eyes Paper Co. are such a fun surprise for guests – and a super cute way to include all the necessary wedding details and info. This adorable invitation includes bespectacled portraits of the bride and groom and a perforated RSVP postcard for guests to tear off and return! The perfect mix of unique and personal!

From Amanda: Lauren and Nicholas were as elegant a couple as their set turned out to be. They wanted to be sure their custom watercolor illustrations captured the details of their personal style, so much so, that we even added glasses to both of their personal illustrations. We also added floral sprigs of rosemary and thyme to the front panel of the invitation to enhance the elevated style that this couple embodied and help set the tone for the actual wedding day. The flow of this 4-panel invitation is so unique. Each panel has a custom watercolor painting adding the couples personal touch.

Watching this invitation come to life was a dream. The second panel opens up to a painting of the beautiful vineyard where the couple will say “I do”. Customizing a painting of the venue is always such a treat. The painting of the rolling hills speckled with vines makes you feel like you are already on vacation.

The fourth panel even has a perforated RSVP card attached to the invite, making it easy for guests to keep track of all of the important details. We love that this invitation unfolds just like a love story. A custom hand painted map highlights the newly engaged couples favorite spots on the coast of California, including but not limited to several In-N-Out locations from the airport to the venue.

On the next panels, we unfold to the important details of the weekend events with the same sprinkles of florals that we mentioned earlier painted throughout the set keeping a cohesive flow throughout. The last panel is a painting of the venue with the couple’s beloved dog on the back wearing an elegant wreath of florals. Between the burgers and the dog, this couple knows how to entice their guests with the important details.
