I know winter is technically citrus season, but these fresh and modern citrus wedding invitations from Lauren and Kari of Tied and Two are just so bright and cheerful – and perfect for summer weddings! This invitation features delicate citrus blossom illustrations on the main invitation, with a bold citrus envelope liner. I’m also especially digging those colorful envelopes from Cards & Pockets – the deep cobalt blue paired with the yellow and orange citrus is a match made in heaven! Doesn’t it remind you of the gorgeous coastline of southern Italy – or even the Greek Isles???
From Lauren and Kari: We loved working with Cari and Evyn and creating this custom wedding invitation design for their citrus-oriented Napa Valley wedding theme. The brides’ requests included warm colors, citrus fruits, and vintage illustrations. They also wanted to utilize minimalist design in combination with accent pieces to add great contrast and vibrance.
We combined vintage citrus illustrations with modern and minimalist typography. We also used colors outside of the invitation suite for the envelopes that gave the package a pop like no other, hence cobalt blue and deep orange envelopes. Other pieces for this suite included custom stamps, insert cards, and a custom-illustrated map. In the end, the result was a high-energy modern invitation set that welcomed their guests to the joyous occasion with zest and spunk.
Working on custom projects cross-country can be tricky, especially when working over the phone and email, as details may not always be articulated as quickly or clearly as they are in person. Thankfully, that was not the case with this project. The concept came quickly and we were all on the same page throughout the entire process. We are SO proud of the end result and anxious to share it with the world!
Thanks Lauren and Kari!

Does the USPS have any issues with the dark envelopes and the black type? Wanted to use a similar dark paper for an event.
