Last summer I had the pleasure of creating a wedding invitation suite for a lovely couple in Virginia who were married in late September of last year in Bel Air, Maryland. The bride, Tara, had seen this invitation suite that I printed for another couple earlier that year, and wanted to do something similar, but different, for her own invitation suite. Tara and Jeremy’s suite featured an A7 size wedding invitation, a 4bar size reply card and coordinating envelopes for both pieces. You can see all four items in the suite in the photo above.

Tara and Jeremy’s invitation was printed in one ink color: a nice reddish-purple that was mixed to coordinate with an invitation matt the we created to frame their invitation. The actual invite itself was printed on Crane Lettra Pearl White 100% cotton paper to create a really beautiful texture and impression. Check out the close-up:

For the design we created a simple, yet lovely monogram at the top using letters from the same typeface that we used for their names. For the rest of the text, we used a classic, all-caps, serif typeface.
Tara and Jeremy’s invitation envelopes were also Crane Lettra. They had a traditional pointed flap and were letterpress printed with the couple’s return address on the flap, also in purple ink.

For their reply card and envelope, we pretty much stuck with the same design as the reply card in the suite I linked to above, but we changed up the colors and information, just a little bit.

The reply card is a 4bar size, printed in light pink ink on Crane Lettra and features a bird with a banner at the top that has their reply by date on it. Below the banner detail is a line for the guests to write in their names, and options to accept or decline. Right below those options, Tara had us include a line with her and Jeremy’s wedding website information, so guests could find out more about wedding details, accommodations, etc. there. We paired this card with a very light pink envelope, also printed with the return address in purple, from Green Paper Company.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Tara and Jeremy and I hope their wedding this past September was just as sweet as their invitation suite! Congratulations Tara & Jeremy!
