Blooming Romance: Botanical Inspired Wedding Invitations & Stationery

Emily and Eric’s desire for a formal yet distinctive invitation suite led to a design celebrating nature’s elegance. They wanted their paper goods to be classic but just a little different from the expected. Green and gold, the colors of their November wedding, were carefully woven into every detail. Instead of the conventional vertical layout, the invitation took on a captivating horizontal format. The gate-folded opening added an element of surprise, hinting at the enchanting celebration to come. The interlocked flaps, rather than standard right angles, created a sense of whimsy and intrigue.

Rich Details

Knowing that they were using a lot of greenery in their florals, I used this detail as my inspiration. Their names were elegantly printed in gold to elevate the suite’s opulence. The gold addition not only matched their aesthetic but also added a touch of luxury. Instead of right-angle corners or even rounded corners, their invitation had skewed flaps interlocked to close. From the first glance, the invitation promised a celebration that would be both classic and delightfully unconventional.
