Art Deco meets Industrial Era Wedding Invitations and Paperie
November 1, 2013 § Leave a comment
This wedding invitation suite is an old one, but I never posted it on the blog. This was SOO fun to create! The bride and groom wanted super unique, fun, and charming wording reminiscent of the 50’s advertising days, the circus, and vintage slogans…and the design was focused around Art Deco elements and colors. This invitation suite was three color letterpress (maroon, turquoise, and chartreuse).
The back of each letterpressed piece had one of three colorful art deco patterned backings.
Love the wording we used for the RSVP. How fun!
I think it would be pretty impossible to turn down an invitation that starts out with “Like a momentous celestial event”… and ends with an “extraordinary evening of exquisite entertainments.” Yeah?
I wish I could have gone to the wedding and participated in boisterous hobnobbing!
The wedding day paperie used the same colors and art deco elements, plus a lot more of the Industrial Revolution Era inspiration (gears, copper backing, etc).
Here are some not so great pictures I shot of the paperie before we placed the copper backing behind:
You read that right, “hookah bar”…!!!
And here are some gorgeous pictures taken by the amazing duo, Kimberly (love her!) and Loren (haven’t had the chance to talk to him yet), of Alante Photography of some of the wedding day yummyness we designed.
