Ashley and Andrew’s beautiful Washington, DC wedding was featured on the Style Me Pretty blog. It was a pleasure working with Howerton+Wooten Events to create all of their custom ivory and gold invitations and stationery.
If it’s hard for you to imagine how an invitation can be both vintage and glamorous at the same time, just have a look at Casey and Branden’s wedding invitation suite!
The antique style floral graphics and colors are the vintage aspect while the silver glitter paper and laser cut monogram are all the way glam!
This folded card style invitation features a satin ribbon band embellishment that holds the insert cards in place along with coral color envelopes that compliment the suite perfectly.
Thank you cards featuring a wedding photo of the couple are also a part of their stationery suite.
The non-traditional bright fuchsia pink and purple colors used in this stationery suite turned out quick nicely when paired with beautiful printing, patterns and embellishments.
The booklet invitation features raised thermography printing on the cover along with purple Swarovski crystal rhinestone embellishments.
The inside pages feature a beautiful pattern in the background and vintagesque motifs.
The same graphics, fonts and colors were used throughout the invitation, programs and table numbers to create a truly beautiful branded stationery suite!
Creating the overall brand, or “look”, for your wedding or event stationery is all about CONSISTENCY! The brand is established in the beginning as a way to define and set the tone for you event through the use of coordinating colors, fonts, graphics, paper and printing styles.
When I brand weddings and events I pull inspiration from the venue, decor and the personality and style of my clients. This helps me to carefully source the appropriate graphics and fonts that will represent the “look” they are going for. I use these key components throughout all of the stationery pieces in different ways. Everything should not be an identical match, but more so variations. Take a look at the featured designs below to see how a fully branded stationery suite was created.
