Dorothy and Teddy’s wedding invitation design
Now that I’ve shared Dorothy and Teddy’s wedding photos, I get to share their invitation design! When Dorothy approached me about designing their wedding invitations, she told me was inspired by an adorable Downtown Sacramento Boutique, Le Petit Paris. She wanted something simple and elegant incorporating the colors of blush and espresso. The full suite included the invitation, RSVP postcard, reception information card and map, and post-wedding announcement.
I designed a monogram that appeared on each piece. Dorothy even used the monogram on her reception menu and favors! I love to see the design elements get used throughout the wedding.
This is the front and back of the postcard RSVP. Dorothy and Teddy applied a stamp to the back, so all their guests had to do was fill our there names and preferences and drop it in the mailbox.
Here is the reception card with a custom map of Downtown Sacramento.
I think my favorite part of the suite has to be the map. I adore the way it turned out. It was so much fun to design! It told guests were to find all the wedding events and pointed out parking and hotels.
Dorothy’s mother commissioned some announcements to send out after the wedding as well. Overall the design turned out elegant and pretty, with a modern flair. And now, having attended the wedding, I’d say they matched the day perfectly!
