Classic Letterpress Invitation with Muted Tones

2013 was the year of muted colors and soft tones, and Kara and Chris’s wedding was no exception. For their rustic, elegant outdoor celebration, Kara and Chris chose a palette of whites, pinks and peaches, with accents of truffle and silver…


Their wedding was to be an elegant outdoor affair, complete with chandeliers, rough wood and lush florals. With that in mind, we set to work creating an invitation that was formal and elegant with simple, classic details.


Kara and Chris wanted to have a little more fun with their save the date. We designed a whimsical die cut save the date, with the back to look like an old postcard.



Tip: While postcards are less costly to mail than an envelope, they do get quite banged up in the mail, arriving to your guests a little worse for the wear. Postcards also allow any and all to see your information as it goes through the mail system. Opt for an envelope to ensure your save the date arrives in pristine condition!


I loved the end result of their save the date! It was playful, fun, and gave guests a little idea of what to expect for the wedding celebration and the next piece to come…the invitation!


Kara and Chris’s invitations were letterpress printed in one color, and edge painted in silver which added a great accent and elegant touch to the suite. We used a wide, soft pink silk ribbon to tie the whole suite together which really made an impression!


We also designed a custom wedding monogram for Kara and Chris that embodied the classic and elegant look they wanted for their entire wedding day.
