Above is another one of my absolute favorite sets of wedding invitations from last year. The couple we created them for was so sweet and wonderful to work with, and the design and colors are so much fun! If you’re a reader of WeddingBee, you may have already seen these before. The bride we created them for is Mrs. Candy Apple. Galen and Jeff’s invitation suite featured an A7 size invitation with corresponding envelope, an A2 size reply card with corresponding envelope, and a 4″ square reception card that was printed as a coaster!
Check out their beautiful invitation below! Galen and Jeff hired Blue Clara on Etsy to create their silhouettes and we incorporated them into this timeless, yet modern design. The invitation is an A7 size and was printed on 100% cotton Crane Lettra Pearl White paper in dark grey ink. Along with their silhouettes, the design also featured a lovely, decorative border and two different fonts: a fun, modern script for their names, and a classic, all-caps, roman face for the body text. Their invitation was paired with a moss green envelope from Waste Not Paper Company and was letterpress printed with their return address in grey on the back flap. I love how Galen had us use a small heart in the address where the ampersand normally would be. So cute!!!
The letterpress printing on this piece was just lovely!
Below, you can see the reply card that we designed to match. The reply card was also printed in dark grey ink and featured the same border design and fonts from the invitation. I love the cute, creative response wording that Galen and Jeff used, and the adorable animal silhouettes are always a fun alternative to simply writing out meal options.
Galen & Jeff also included a separate reception “card” with their invites. They were married at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Seattle, but held their reception at a separate venue: the Seattle Tennis Club. They wanted to emphasize the fun aspect of their reception, so for this piece, rather than printing it as a normal card, we printed it on a coaster! The coasters were printed in two ink colors: the same dark grey from the other pieces in the suite, and a nice olive-y green to match the envelopes. I think this piece was super-fun!
Galen also added some additional embellishments to this suite that really tied everything together including a Moo Card with one of their engagement photos, bakers twine and custom calligraphy. The calligraphy was done by Michele Clark of Calligraphy by Michele in Staten Island, New York. Her work is always beautiful! If you’d like to see these invitations fully assembled, and read about them on Galen’s WeddingBee Blog, you can here and here. Check them out!
