This wedding invitation suite was designed for a couple having a gorgeous, luxurious, traditional summer wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Melissa and Stephen are having a beach wedding at Cabo del Sol filled with lush florals, greenery, lots of white and ivory, and hints of blush pink. We wanted the invitations to give off a grand and classic feel while having some fun accents since it will be set on a beach with gorgeous ocean views! The custom watercolor crest was designed to coordinate with a crest that was used in their save the dates, but brings in tropical greenery accents with a hand-painted watercolor look. This watercolor crest would also tie in with the custom watercolor wedding map.
The invitation card itself has very simple design, again utilizing that custom wedding crest, gorgeous and clean modern calligraphy, and a traditional serif font. The simplicity pairs perfectly with the intricate and lavish laser cut enclosure. The laser cut enclosure has a gorgeous floral pattern that ties in with the white and ivory florals that will be used throughout the ceremony itself. The enclosure is cut out of a metallic ivory paper to give it an extra little shine. All of the pieces are placed within the enclosure, and the whole set is tied with a simple white satin ribbon. The outer envelope is a classic white envelope adorned with navy blue modern calligraphy to match the pieces of the invitation suite.
The envelope liner also coordinates with the belly band pattern from their save the dates, but has been transformed into a beautiful hand-painted watercolor version. The soft colors bring a gorgeous subtle texture to the entire suite! This same tiled pattern is used in other pieces throughout the invitation suite, such as the RSVP card and the wedding timeline. By bringing in little familiar pieces from the save the dates, it gives an overall sense of coordination and purpose in the design of the wedding invitations.
The custom watercolor wedding map was such a fun pop of color added to the suite! It featured their venue locations, Cabo del Sol, and the gorgeous hotel that their guests will be staying at, The Cape Hotel. By tying that familiar piece of the crest throughout several pieces of the suite, it gives a uniform look that keeps it classic and traditional.
