nina & david's olive, gold, cream & blush summer wedding invitations

Lauren Covington blush gold gold foil green modern monogram square summer wedding wedding invitations

For Nina and David's wedding invitation suite, the couple wanted to mail something that felt relaxed, intriguing and welcoming to their guests. In order to honor the setting and season, a romantic outdoor summer wedding at the historic Cairnwood Estate near Philadelphia, we chose olive, blush and gold for the color palette with subtle visuals of olive branches.
We veered away from tradition by repeating the square shape and mixing minimalist fonts with romantic scripts.  Plus, square invitations are an effortless way to differentiate your invitation from the rest of your guests' mail.

Modern Square Invitation - Olive, Green, blush and Cream with Gold Foil and blade-cut details

The construction concept of the invitation started with the idea of layering matte and metallic papers that would be revealed through an olive branch window that was cut directly onto the folded invitation.

The olive branch window and shimmery gold paper would the first thing guests see when they open the invitation, and it still didn't give give away the occasion. As the pieces are undone, the invitation is fully-revealed in gold foil with a modern olive branch monogram at the top.Laser-cut Olive and Gold Foil Square Wedding Invitation

While the invite was the star with pretty gold foil, secondary pieces varied in texture and color but were all laser-printed in charcoal gray. Neenah's Stardream antique gold provided shimmery sophistication with the RSVP envelope and rehearsal dinner piece.

The details card was a textured matte blush, and the invitation envelope and RSVP card was a textured matte cream to counter-balance the weight of the masculine olive and antique gold. For guest addresses, minimal design was key to highlighting the vintage stamps.

Overall, I loved how the invitation was full of contradictions with color and style but still work as a cohesive suite. Congrats, Nina & David!
