Happy New Years Eve, everyone! It’s Sunday, so that means it’s time for another #invitationreveal! Haley came to me from her sister-in-law, Morgan who we worked with earlier in the year! She said she was going with a rustic-chic look and sent photos of wreath hoops she was using behind the head able at their wedding!
In her initial inquiry she told us “Bridesmaid color is a slate grey, suites are a brighter navy blue. My dress is off-white lace. Flowers are whites, eucalyptus, greenery, grey painted berries. My ring is rose gold so toying around with the idea of incorporating rose gold elements? Table decorations include glass lanterns, wood boxes with flowers/greenery/berries and tall wood vases with the battery operated light up twigs. Three different table layouts used throughout.” She also mentioned wanting a more modern script font vs. and Old English script font. From there, I got to work!
As you probably know by now, we start off with the mood board! The main focus for Haley and I was to include the wreath hoops on her invitations and we did just that! She also wanted to incorporate the grey tones more so than the blue that the groomsmen would be wearing. We went back and forth on the script font for her & Brandon’s names, but ultimately went with a very fun, quirky look!
To cut costs, she opted for a two sided invitation with the reception information on the back. This eliminated the idea of adding an insert card with this information! She included the meal options for her guests on her RSVP with a straight forward approach to keep the invitations more ‘timeless’. Both Haley, and her sis-in-law Morgan added a “just dance” card to their suite to send to guests who were invited to the reception after dinner but not the intimate ceremony. We kept the design consistent on these with the wreath hoops and quirky script. Since starting Unica Forma in April 2016 I have seen a lot of brides use this approach. It’s not something I had ever thought of before working in the industry, but it makes a lot of sense and is a great way to really include everyone you want in your big day!
I had so much fun working on Haley’s invitation suite, and love doing custom art for our brides! I know their wedding in March will be absolutely gorgeous and I cannot wait to work with her and Brandon in the future.
