Danielle + Max: Wedding Invitations
Danielle and Max’s wedding invitation project has been one of my favorites to create thus far. They wanted something unique, something creative, something that was “them.” You might remember their Save the Dates project, here. When I created those Save the Dates, I knew I wanted everything to be cohesive. Meaning, the first thing guests received in the mail months leading up to the big day, to the actual wedding invitation suite, to day-of signage and special touches. And so did Danielle and Max.
We kept with the white, black, and dusty blue color palette, and used the same fonts and elements that we did for the Save the Dates. For the wedding invitation, we did an accordion-style foldout, which is super unique and cool. The first part of the foldout showcased the DM monogram, then went into the actual wedding invitation details, then – the best part – a custom watercolor painting that I did of their most special places, and finally, the finer details.
For the custom watercolor design, I painted Danielle’s house she grew up in, Max’s house he grew up in, the Las Vegas strip (they met each other and started their life together in Las Vegas), and finally, all three of those places leading to their wedding venue, the Phoenixville Foundry, in the middle. So cool, right?!
Aside from the super sweet invitation, we had two separate pieces as well: the response card and the transportation card. Response card – self-explanatory. Transportation card: another custom watercolor for the charter bus.
To tie everything together (literally), we opted for a dusty blue chiffon/silk ribbon, along with antique gold wax seals, featuring the DM monogram. For the envelopes, we did a dusty blue A7 with white ink that matched the invitation fonts, along with shimmery ivory and black ink for the response envelope.
