In the middle of the summer heat, there is nothing like a wedding celebration on the beach!! Hearing the waves crash while they say, “I do.” Then watching the sunset during cocktail hour and dancing the night away!!
This invitation was for a fishing captain and his “beach lover” bride. They wanted lots of sea art and fun colors (dark blue, aqua blue, light blue, purple and silver.)
When we walked away from our first meeting with them, we had no idea how all this was going to work together. But once we started designing, we “became” them and saw their vision as they wanted it to be. Having a multicolor design can be refreshing for an invitation. Like the sea, many things are happing but they are all part of one family. This wedding invitation came together in just that way. We added color in just the right elements, giving it a hint of excitement.
The invitation was a horizontal, rectangular two fold pocket. On the front is a double-layer tag with a ribbon that wraps around the entire pocket and finishes inside. Once opened the invitation sits on a light purple layer to highlight the event.
A direction card, reception card, and response card all held the invitation style, while the envelopes were a beautiful aqua blue.
Maybe a little loud for some but just right for them!
Here are a couple other beach invitations from our portfolio.
