art deco wedding invitation

It’s been some time in the making, but the Art Deco-inspired Wedding Invitation (well, actually a 40th anniversary invitation) is finally here!!

I shared the visual + sparkle = inspiration with you here, where I finalized the colors and feel for the overall design of the Invitation Suite. Of course, after comencing the process of design certain things changed, such as removing the gold color and making the bronze a darker shade. Over all, I think the final outcome is just gorgeous and I can’t wait to show you a second version which was created as a keepsake.

The Art Deco theme was inspired by the husband’s love of Art Deco architecture taking inspiration from architectural elements of various Los Angeles buildings and structures.

The elongated format of the invitation itself, fitting perfectly into a black, linen, #10 policy envelope, also reflects the long structures and slender motifs of the era.

The patterns were custom designed for the invitation suite, including the Save the Date which you can see below in this same post.

Each of the cards had a distinct pattern design, w/ one color combination on the front and an alternating color on the back, but always keeping to the carefully-chosen palette.

In order to keep costs down, the suite was printed digitally, but to add a sense of elegance we incorporated a pebble-textured belly band in a copper tone, which adds a touch of shimmer to the overall design.

A custom diamond-shaped logo w/ deco motifs was created to use as a decorative element on the belly band, on back of the rsvp, and on certain day-of elements.

The rsvp and save the date were paired w/ a metallic copper envelope to tie the whole suite together.

I’m in the midst of completing a second keepsake version of this invitation which includes textured stock, multiple folds, and photo corners!! Stay tuned for that. =)
