Almost eleven months ago (I can't believe it's been that long already), I wrote a blog post about a really fun and super-modern set of Save-the-Date cards I was printing for a couple in Texas who were getting married the following October. Well, as you all know, October 2009 has come and gone, and that couple that I made those Save-the-Dates for is now married! Shortly after completing their save-the-date cards, I went on to help them design and print the rest of their wedding stationery, which included an A7 invitation with corresponding envelope, an A6 size, folded thank you card with envelopes, a 4bar size reply card with corresponding envelope, and a really awesome, folded 6.25" square program for the actual ceremony. I enjoyed working with this couple quite a lot, and even though it's now after-the-fact, I wanted to make sure I shared all of their super-cool stationery with you!
You can see the pieces in the main invitation suite at the top of this post. And here is the invitation, all by itself:
Victoria and David's wedding invitations were an A7 size, printed in three ink colors: violet, chartreuse and light grey on Crane Lettra Bright White 100% cotton paper. I love how modern her design ended up being: very bright, very unique and super-modern. Victoria's Save-the-Dates, as well as the invitation you see above and the rest of the suite that you're about to see, were designed by her sister. Isn't that cool? I love how she used the different colors to separate all of the different little pieces of information. When text like this is so close and uniform, doing something like switching up the colors, will really help to set the most important information apart. We paired this invitation with a grey A7 envelope from Waste Not Paper Company and printed Victoria and David's return address on the flap in violet ink. I love how Victoria's sister kept the type styling consistent throughout everything in this suite, from big pieces like the invitation down to small details like the addresses.
Victoria and David's reply card was designed to coordinate and is a 4bar size, also printed in three ink colors. To mix things up, we paired this card with a coordinating chartreuse envelope and printed their address on the front in violet and grey inks.
When she ordered her invitations, Victoria also ordered a set of folded, A6 size thank you cards. I love the way that these thank you cards could be used as thank you's, but are also not specifically thank you cards and could also be used for other correspondence long after their wedding. The only printing on these cards is a simple, letterpress design of their names, printed in the same three ink colors as the rest of their suite. The cards are blank on the inside so Victoria and David could write whatever message they wanted to! Although not pictured, these cards were also paired with grey envelopes from Waste Not Paper that were printed with a violet return address on the flap.
Last, but certainly not least, Victoria and David hired me to design a program for their ceremony that would compliment the rest of their wedding stationery. They had quite a bit of information to include in the program, so we chose to create a 6.25" square, folded program on a single sheet of paper that had printing on all four panels. Here is what it looked like closed, from the front:
For the front of their programs, I tried to keep the design consistent with the design that Victoria's sister had created for their invitation. This is basically a "cover page". Open up the program and you will reveal all of the information about the actual events of Victoria and David's wedding ceremony.
This interior portion of the program included an order of events, as well as information on all of the music that was played and on the blessings and passages that were read and performed during the ceremony. The back page included information about Victoria and David's wedding party and an "In Loving Memory" section to acknowledge their family members who had passed away prior to their wedding.
Here is another image so you can see both sides of the program opened up and together:
I love how fresh, modern and unique this set of wedding stationery was! I also love how we were able to incorporate three very distinctive and unique colors into all the pieces, while keeping everything looking consistent! Victoria and David were fabulous clients to work with and I hope that their wedding this past October was as fun as their stationery!
Congratulations you two and thanks again!
