jahri (an offensive guard for the new orleans saints!) + takia will be getting married this june in the beautiful islands of the bahamas. with the assistance of their wedding planner, gina sole, they have planned an elegant wedding with a color palette of black, gold, and ivory with touches of blush pink. they wanted to wow their guests with a save the date that got them super excited for their destination wedding. takia suggested we incorporate a bottle of rum to hint at the island wedding. we customized the bottle with a label-style save the date where all of the information besides the wedding destination was included. an ombre silk ribbon was used to tie a miniature folded tag to the top of the bottle with a scratch-off inside. guests had to scratch the gold circle with a coin to reveal where the wedding will take place. we secured the glass bottle inside a small wooden crate filled with shredded pink paper. the lid was silk screened by awesome dudes printing with the couple’s monogram for that extra special personal touch.
we designed an alternative flat save the date card for their guests who do not drink alcohol. this was printed on metallic ivory paper, wrapped with ribbon and the scratch off tag and mailed in a black envelope with wrap around label.
we are beginning their invitations now and can’t wait to share these beauties as well!
