We designed Michelle and Renzo’s save the dates with inspiration from Marie Antoinette. We wanted to really touch on this very decadent, lavish feel for all of their items. They came to us right from the start and we got to design all of their pieces, from save the dates to shower invitations, their wedding invitation, and all of their day-of items.
Their save the date features a custom die cut shape with a gold foil pattern on the back and two color letterpress and gold foil on the front. It was mailed to guests with hand tied ribbons and a magnet for hanging on the fridge! The envelope had an antique gold paper liner and gold foil on the flap.
We wanted their entire suite to evoke the feeling of French royalty. We decided to create a booklet wrapped in beautiful natural silk with their monogram gold foil stamped on the front and blush pink ribbons tying it all together. The interior of the booklet features gold foil stamping and a custom die cut pocket. Their blush pink letterpress and gold foil invitation, featuring gorgeous calligraphy from Grace Edmands, was mounted on top of the backing. The pocket contained a die cut gold foil rehearsal dinner invitation, mimicking the shape from their save the dates, as well as the letterpress and gold foil circle reception card, and the letterpress and gold foil reply card and envelope.
Their day-of items were SO much fun to work on! Their welcome package was a shimmer gold euro tote bag with their monogram stamped in white foil in the center. It was filled with a custom tiered welcome letter, hangover kits, mints, and door hangers among some other items their wedding planner picked out for them. Their ceremony program was gold foil on a blush pink cover with a gold foil stamped accordion folded interior. We added gold ribbons to tie to the invitation ribbon. Other items included foil stamped menus, multiple cocktail napkins, guest towels, stir sticks, table numbers, linen napkins, and fun signage as well.
