The whole idea behind working with a designer to create a custom wedding invitation is to put some of your personality in it, to convey some of your own unique style, or to preview what will be the celebration of the year by incorporating elements of the venue. Not only does the Envelopments® line we carry have everything you’ll need to make your wedding invitations exactly the way you want them, but we are ready, willing and able to help you create an invitation that is a keepsake.
Here are some stand-out design inspirations from Envelopments:
The Sarah & Edwynn ensemble plays on the popular vintage theme, using unique artwork, graphic elements, and an unconventional layout using five different fonts. Because there is so much visual interest in the graphic design elements, you can be low-key with the paper goods. Using Envelopmentsstocks in a restricted palette of tone-on-tone blues (Navajo, Indigo and Aruba) and whites (Dove and White Micah) allows for the organized chaos in the layout.
A summer wedding calls for a fresh palette like the Karina & Jordan design. A light feeling of airiness with minimal type design was the goal by accenting the ensemble with curvy calligraphic elements. Keeping the color story in soft greens and ivories, and combining a variety of matte and metallic stocks, creates a subtle balance of visual highs and lows. Because texture is huge in 2011, try the fabric-like weave of a Magnolia Pocket Fold® enclosure.
Yellow has been a vital color for the past few months. Envelopments recently unveiled Soleil, a vibrant matte stock that guarantees sunshine on your special day. In the Carolyn & William invitation, the perfect contrast was created using a bright Soleil Pocket Fold® enclosure against various black and white Envelopments patterns.
The Jocelyn & Holden ensemble features a preppy palette of green and blue. A combination of stripes, banners and calligraphy ornaments creates a visual theme for the event. Check out the tattoo-inspired script font. The dynamic shape of the Twist Card is perfect to display a photograph of the couple on the front and a handwritten note on the back.
The marriage of neutral and bright colors plays well off each other in the Bethany & Douglas featured sample. Imagine the groom wearing a crisp khaki suit with a bold orange tie. You can see the love of paper unfold in this gorgeous wedding invitation.
Is it wrong to fall in love with a font? The Lizette & Anthony featured sample has typography with intricate details in each character that demand to be oversized. The monochromatic palette of crèmes and soft blues can stand up to the visual impact of the bold graphic design without edging over the top.
The Angelique & Bradley featured sample is a tight representation of a wedding invitation. This custom scored Z-card has the invitation printed on the left panel, the reception information in the center and the response set mounted onto the right panel. A simple panel card has a great impact using graphics on a Save the Date announcement. A soft set of Dove-SWI96 and Magnolia-REP96 Favor Containers add that darling touch to an elegant event.
This one is for those adventurous couples who aren’t afraid of color. The Darla & Kevin featured sample incorporates the brightness of Magnolia-BLO17 and Reef, which are carried through the printed panels as typography.
Whether you’re looking for something simply chic or over-the-top, whether your aesthetic is minimalistic or you’re a die-hard maximalist, if you prefer a restricted palette or defy all rules of color theory, Envelopments has a solution for your wedding ensemble.
