Kristen and Mike tied the knot in the seaside city of Galveston, Texas on the weekend before Valentine's Day. As we brainstormed for their suite, they wanted it to be luxurious, romantic, beachy, and not overly formal. Gold foil and mix-and-match textures were a top priority.
The invitation was gold foil-stamped on double-ply Lettra paper and duplexed with a metallic rose gold paper to give it extra thickness and texture. While the calligraphy font brought a major femininity factor, we consciously opted for a heavier block text on other pieces to bring in more masculinity.
I always call the reception card the “fun” piece -- so, we used the same rose gold metallic paper from the invitation duplexing for the reception card. We ended up with a die-cut circle piece with gold foil-stamped text reading "Let's Party" to signal to the guests that the evening would be anything but stuffy.
To make the RSVP card slightly more casual, we used playful wording, a vertical layout barely-there blush letterpress to match the envelopes. On the response envelope, we had some fun with a cute little crab that ended up stealing the groom heart. He requested that it appear on the napkins, programs and other day-of pieces, and I happily obliged!
We offset the femininity of the suite with a darker, more straightforward rehearsal dinner design, using navy paper with gold foil and a dusty blue envelope. I loved how the dusty blue linked up with the softness of the blush.
The wedding invitation envelope and RSVP envelopes were sun-bleached blush and lined with Stardream’s antique gold paper to match the foil. The final detail, was a matching Stardream invitation band with the couple’s initials laser-cut in the center to allow our lovely rose gold reception card shine through.
