Colourful Wedding Invitations
The client required wedding invitations designed to be bright and colourful. This colourful wedding stationery project was a fun one to work with!
The wedding venue was at Hahei Beach Resort, a beautiful beach location.
The client wanted the whole wedding to be full of fun and relaxation. The bright colourful theme worked well with this, as it meant we could incorporate a fun element into the designs themselves.
The client was open to ideas of how the bright colours could be used. We decided to use a watercolour effect to form the background of the invitation, this way a few colours could be incorporated into the design.
Bright Colourful Wedding Invite Design
The wedding invite design needed something else to hold it together. We decided to add a Koru symbol.
The meaning behind the koru fitted perfectly with a wedding: “Resembling the unfurling frond of the native New Zealand fern, the koru depicts new beginnings, life and hope.”
The colours from the watercolour background were added to the koru to tie in with the rest of the design.
The text colours were kept simple, but still using the bright colours theme, so orange and bright pink were chosen, which seemed to compliment each other well.
The client had already sourced a pocketfold folder they wanted to use to contain the information.
The invite and the RSVP/information insert would sit in the folder together. The design of the RSVP was based on the invitations.
Wedding Stationery Suite
The client required table names, place names, menu, order of service, drinks menu and a table plan to be designed.
The watercolour background was used for these designs, with a gradient fade into white, as some items seemed too busy using the full colour background.
Having a mixture of the two designs across the wedding stationery really helped to hold the theme together, without it looking too cluttered and busy.
