A Little Invitation Inspiration from Andres and Andrea

Congratulations to Andres and Andrea, who were recently married in Lomita, California! Don’t worry, there are photos and stories to come regarding the big day, but what about the little details that led up to the main event?

 

One of your most important wedding day duties is making sure that guests know where and when to show up!

 

This couple paid careful attention to detail when designing their invitation envelope, and their eye for design and detail was apparent to their guests. Remember that invitations are your guests’ first guess regarding the formality and feel of your wedding day. Put some thought into developing your invites and wedding stationary to make sure your guests will be impressed from the start!

 

Envelope

Plain white envelopes won’t get you shunned by your family and friends, but invitations can be a fun way to experiment with new colors and textures. Andres and Andrea chose to begin their invitations with a parcel-brown envelope that incorporated a simple, wrap-around blue address sticker with hand-written guest addresses. They also used a stamp that integrated their color theme!

 

Invite

The vivid, swirling colors that Andres and Andrea used throughout their invitation were also found all over their wedding day. From menus to table numbers, the stationary at their wedding promoted a feeling of unity and cohesion. Remember that simple designs are always appreciated by sometimes-overwhelmed guests. Andres and Andrea included only information that was necessary, and used an additional insert for extra info.

 

RSVP

Keeping with the colors and feel of the invite, the RSVP card was a simple, elegant design that would be easy for any guest to navigate. Note that they saved themselves some paper by making the RSVP card a postcard!

 

Website

A yellow insert with Andrea and Andres’ wedding website information allowed guests to answer any extra questions online. This is usually the best way to alert your guests of registry details (other than word-of-mouth).
