We are excited to finally be able to share this new project. Congratulations to the newly married Cara & Izzy! This is one of those projects we anxiously awaited the opportunity to share. We first met the couple last year and over the course of their project, got to know Cara a little better and enjoyed every minute of it. This was our first New Year’s Eve wedding which made it so much more fun!
The project started with their lovely save the dates. Sprinkled with navy blue, deep purple and gold confetti and a mix of traditional and fancy fonts, it has become one of my all-time favorite designs.
For their wedding invitations, Cara was drawn to something a little more simple and refined. She chose a letterpress invitation printed with metallic gold ink. The paper for the invitation is 100% cotton and is super thick. It is the perfect choice to showcase the beautiful texture of letterpress printing. The RSVP and details cards are both cotton but are a lighter weight. To save money, Cara chose to have those pieces be flat printed. We love this combination as a way to bring in the special detail of letterpress even on a tighter budget. I loved how Cara chose to have the confetti show up on the details card just to break up the design from card to card. It makes the pieces less “matchy-matchy”.
For their rehearsal invitations, Cara chose a similar overall feel but I loved how she wanted to change things up a bit. She didn’t want the rehearsal invitations to look just like everything else. The split layout on the bottom of the card gives it a more modern feel than the other pieces of her stationery package.
When it came time for Cara’s day-of items, she chose to go back to the shimmer paper and combine both the simple elegance of the invitations with the more fun confetti design of her save the dates. We had fun creating all the unique pieces from table numbers to programs, and more.
The programs are a single panel program printed on both sides. This is a popular format because it provides plenty of room for all the information while staying very affordable for most couples.
The clock design from her invitations was carried over to the top of the program which was a theme throughout their wedding decor.
The confetti design used on their save the dates became a great complimentary design element for some of their other day of items like the Card sign above and the menu below.
We also used the confetti design on their table numbers which they put into frames to sit on each table.
The welcome cards were designed to be included in their welcome bags for their guests informing them of the weekend’s events.
And little cards for their sweets table meant as a little added detail for the favor bags.
