Glamorous Black Lace Wedding Invitation


Back in December I had the pleasure of collaborating on a photoshoot with Armando of Alegria By Design. The shoot was recently featured on Wedding Chicks (more to come on that soon), but I wanted to feature the invitation and paper products I did for the shoot first.


For the save the date, I did a fuchsia paper with rounded corners to keep with the clean lines feel of the shoot. The envelope was white, and lined in black lace for an extra pop.


The style of the shoot was a 1950’s Mod Hollywood Glamour. For the invitation I did an oval shape with black lace over fuchsia paper. I added a chandelier accented with jet black swarvosky crystals for added glamour. The envelope for the invitation was fuchsia lined in glossy black paper.


For the reply card I wanted to play off the crystals on the chandelier and keep with the oval shape for the invitation suite. The reply card envelope has boarderless printing with the same crystals on the envelope flap.


Keeping with the modern 1950’s feel I opted for a round menu. It went great with the feel of the whole shoot and kept in that “clean lines” feel of the whole suite.


The table numbers were made from the same fuchsia paper with black lace overlay and accented with the jet black swarvosky crystals.


I loved this whole suite, but I think my favorite pieces were the escort cards. Printed on fuchsia paper with black lace trim. The inside of each card was lined with black and white stripes. I love putting something on the inside portion of tented escort cards. It’s a fun and unexpected place to find a design.
