Rustic Wedding Invitations
The client wanted to use a vintage/rustic theme for her wedding invitations, incorporating lace, string and neutral colours.
This was a hand crafted set of stationery using a layering effect.
The wedding was held at Croyde Bay Holiday Resort, a coastal venue that lent itself to some beautiful photos of the bride and groom on the beach.
Rustic Wedding Invitation Design
To design the invitations themselves, we needed to keep it purely typographical.
A script font was used for the names, and a modern looking serif font for the information.
The invitation was printed onto a textured brown paper. Next, lace was applied to the top, with a string bow tied across the lace. It was then adhered to a cream backing card. Each one was individually crafted.
The client wanted to include an RSVP insert, and a poem about not wanting gifts from the guests.
We decided these would be hand crafted in the same way as the invitations, but just at a smaller size.
Wedding Stationery Suite
The client also required an order of service booklet, table names, place names and a table plan.
To keep the theme going across the whole suite, every item was created in the same manner as the invitations.
It was time consuming but the overall effect was well worth the effort.
