Our Pretty Things
this elaborate invitation suite included a letterpress invitation, reception card and mailing envelope along with a full color rsvp postcard, directional card, envelope liner and tag. the couple loved the idea of a stacked package, which revealed layers of flourishes and stripes. with the combination of the various patterns and muted color palette we were able to achieve a beautiful balance of masculine and feminine design. the formal invitation was personalized with a vintage philadelphia postcard style rsvp and playful tag. the package was neatly wrapped with a soft lace band and finished with a single raffia bow and tag (their wedding date of 5.5.12 was printed on the front which mirrored their first date of 5.5.09 on the reverse). the mailing addresses were hand painted in charcoal ink.
in addition, we also designed their programs, table numbers and menus. the program followed the style of the wedding invitations and included many details about the greek wedding ceremony. the book was tied together with a simple lace knot. the table numbers and menus were meant to feel like vintage, rustic cards that you would find in an old italian train car.
