I was so excited when one of my oldest friends came to me for her wedding invitations. She and her fiancé decided to have an intimate wedding ceremony at their church for immediate family only, followed by a throw-down swanky bash for all friends and family to celebrate. The dual invitation allowed us to have fun with the reception piece, using full gold foil, bold lettering and playful wording.
The reception venue had hundreds of tiffany lamps hanging from the ceiling, so we definitely wanted to play up the vintage vibe without going too Art Nouveau. Christina and Mason loved the look of black, gold and white, so I ran with it to come up with this glamours invitation suite.
For the type nerds: All of the graphics on the invitation were sourced from Bodoni Ornaments, an amazing type based on Italian typographer Giambattista Bodoni's sketches (or at least sketches from his printing house) that were created sometime in the late eighteenth century. Can you spot the similarities?
Invite Logistics: For anyone planning a similar event, we sent everyone the reception invite and the RSVP. Only close family members received the ceremony piece. Even though they were two separate events, there was no need for two different response cards since it was likely that ceremony attendees would be going to the reception.
