Today's Wedding Wednesday is taking it back to a spring wedding, Tyler & Ed. What a lovely couple they are. As much as I loved seeing them get married and taking a look at those gorgeous photos, I was almost a little bit sad as their day came and went as that meant I wouldn't get to work with Tyler anymore. She was seriously one of the sweetest brides ever. And we added some gorgeous details to her suite that I still can't get over.
We started with a beautiful amethyst, rectangolo pocket envelope with an embossed monogram on the flap that (I wish you could see! Unfortunately embossed items don't photograph too well. But then we layered the invitation with a silver scalloped mat that really popped on the darker background.
So in English (ha!) that means a luxurious purple, horizontal pocket envelope (in above photo, it's the purple background) that holds all of the invitation pieces: invite itself, RSVP card, Information Card and Timeline. And the invitation itself is glued onto a silver cardstock with a scalloped edging (you can see the circle-like edging around the invitation) that is then glued onto the pocket envelope.
One of my favorite things about invitations are when we add the simplest details because you wouldn't know it but they just add SO much. In this suite, the embosser (in this case, embossing means that we essentially stamped her monogram into the flap of the pocket envelope by raising and lowering aspects of the paper) added such a subtle touch to the outer flap. And then the timeline. I just love it when brides do timelines like she did. It can just add so much character to a suite and truly show the feel of the wedding in photos.
Invitations are such a great way to set the tone of your wedding to your guests, and it's a great way to brand your wedding throughout the entire event. I just love all of the details of Tyler & Karen's planning of the beautiful florals, the cake, the cake topper, the Mount Vernon inclusions, and more. And Marirosa did a phenomenal job capturing it all.
