Our Pretty Things
takia and jahri (an offensive guard for the new orleans saints!) were married in the beautiful islands of the bahamas. they 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 the save the date that included 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 except 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 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 with the couple’s monogram for that extra special personal touch.
in addition, we designed an alternative flat save the date card for their guests who did 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.
