Hey loves! Today I wanted to share a few details about a specific invitation suite designed for The Curated Collection, and share thoughts that went into the design for the Beloved Wreath Suite, which was inspired by Pantone's Color of the Year for 2017. I completely love the organic style that is being incorporated into a lot of weddings that I am seeing these days - from adding a long garland centerpiece to having bouquets that are comprised of more green than florals, I love the free-spirited but tailored beauty that they hold. So, I designed this invitation suite to tie into weddings that are looking for an organic and rich feel, still incorporating a few special details that will make it their own.
With this invitation being a part of the Curated Collection, that means that it will only be designed for a bride one time, for one wedding only before it goes into the design vault. There are minor changes that can be made to it and the wording can be adapted to your specifications, as it is not a completely custom invitation suite. The Curated Collection is the soulmate to Bespoke Wedding Experience, and was created to help brides who may not have the time or the budget needed for a fully bespoke design for their wedding. So, if you love this invitation suite but perhaps want to add an envelope liner or add a custom stamp, or have a custom monogram designed to go into the main wreath shown on the top of the invitation and throughout the suite, you absolutely can!
Also, a tremendous thank you to Aislinn Kate for the images shown below!
I love the addition of silk ribbon on this suite to really tie everything together and add such a subtle but statement piece. The addition of silk ribbon tied in a really loose knot instead of pulling it tightly across the papers so lovingly included always softens the entire look of an invitation suite, and brings an entirely different texture and emotion while your guests see it for the first time, instead of having it held together with a more traditional paper belly band or tied in a bow. I love that this color in particular also pulls out a bit more of the lighter tones of green in the wreath, which highlights the couples' new last name together.
For every invitation suite that I complete, envelope addressing is included on the mailing and reply envelopes, in the same font, color, and style as the invitation collection. This is done not only to make it easier on you so that you don't need to address all invitations that you are mailing to your guests, but it also creates the "finishing touch" to the entire suite, enticing your guests to open it with joy from the moment it is in their hands after receiving it from their mailbox.
If you are a bride who is looking to have an invitation that is designed like this for your wedding (or perhaps this beauty is exactly what you've been looking for!), remember to pin this to your Pinterest board!
