SS . wedding invitation

congratulations on your wedding this past weekend SS! and to celebrate we will be sharing their entire suite of wedding paper products this week, here on our blog.

as we mentioned friday, the SS wedding suite was inspired by the OT wedding invitation. SS came to us with her heart already set on that exact invitation. as you all already know, we are a custom design shop, so we had to figure out a way to make SS an invitation all her own while using the OT invite as inspiration without replicating it identically. we used the same color grey {did you just hear the heavenly angels sing} and the same script font. then, knowing that SS's wedding gown was lace we decided to make that the graphic element to be blind letterpressed {more singing angels}.

the texture of lace was amazing for the blind letterpressed backing on the invitation {making these invitations extra thick}. there were so many little negative spaces in the lace pattern that we literally molded the paper. the effect was incredible; it looked just like a piece of real lace once pressed. and the best part...SS sent us a swatch of the lace from her wedding dress so that we could coordinate it with the lace pattern on the invitation. a pretty special little detail of this wedding suite if we do say so ourselves. subtle and so meaningful all at the same time.
