The outer envelope is covered in beautiful navy blue hand lettering for the address, paired with beach-inspired vintage stamps, always a must! One of my favorite things about this navy blue ink is the way it has that flowing ombre effect throughout the letterforms.
Upon opening the envelope, guests will find a sea blue enclosure wrapped in a custom belly band. This belly band features a geometric pattern inspired by Mexican tiles found throughout the architecture of this destination, and topped off with a custom wedding monogram.
When opening the enclosure, you will first see the custom calligraphy lettered Save the Date card printed in gold foil front and center. The design of this card was kept very simple so that the eye wasn't pulled to one part of the enclosure only - the entire invitation flowed together in perfect beachy unison! The pocket to the right holds the gold foiled accommodations card and an accordion style card with several of the couples engagement photos.
The bride had so many favorite engagement photos (I don't blame her - I mean look at that beach and that couple!) that she asked for me to design a creative way to display several of the images besides the one in the enclosure oval slot! So, this accordion card is what we ended up with, and it was a perfect little unique touch, especially with the wedding hashtag displayed on the back of the card!
This Save the Date is the perfect combination of traditional, modern, beach elegance that will surely get guests excited for this extravagant and gorgeous wedding happening in summer of 2017! We are starting on her wedding invitations very soon, and I can't wait to see how they turn out and what inspires us during the design phase! Follow along for updates!
