The design of this invitation came about from a photo of a cake my bride fell in love with. She wanted something that would reflect the theme of the cake.
She wanted something mainly Red but also including the black and white. The belly band with the pearl accent gives it a funky modern feel. Embossing to the side of the invitation and flap of the envelope tie’s the theme together nicely to create a wow factor. A Triangle shaped menu and place card with embossing and pearl accents were chosen for the tables.
Ellissa wanted a very Elegant invitation which would reflect the style of her gown.
I’ve used a combination of both smooth card and metallic paper coupled with a pearl embellishment and double-sided satin ribbon to give this invitation a truly exquisite look. The invitation inside is a flip book style.
The embossed theme was carried through in her Seating plan, napkins, favours / bomboniere, guest book and Table numbers.
She also added some colour along with the deep cream.
As the venue for the reception is in a french restaurant, Julie wanted to add a french influence to her black and white invitations.
The black envelopes with white labels and embossed flaps create a sense of anticipation. The front of the trifold folder establishes the formal tone of the event by using a formal font with a touch of bling. Once opened the delicate black and white back ground matting creates the french feel Julie was looking for.
I’ve continued the theme through with the place cards, Menu’s and Seating plan using the Chandelier to tie all the pieces together.
