a formal wedding invitation for elizabeth and christopher who were married this summer at the historic hotel du pont in delaware. we designed their save the date last year and carried over the regal shades of gold and eggplant as well as the subtle diamond pattern onto their invitation package and day of materials.

the invitation suite was printed on metallic ivory paper. guest names, even funny nicknames, were handwritten onto the gold metallic belly bands by melanie from gracefully addressed for that extra special personal touch. the invite was adhered to a gold metallic backer to achieve a framed look and make it feel like the most important piece of the package. the smaller reception and response card were tucked neatly into the band to create an elegant layered effect. the etched entreé animals and flourished frame designs both added some unexpected whimsy to an overall elegant set. metallic gold ink was used for the return address and melanie also addressed the outer eggplant envelopes in gold.

we have lots of coordinating day of materials from this wedding to share with you in the coming weeks!
