Wedding invitation design

I had the opportunity to design wedding invitations for a personal client which included invitation cards, map cards, and the RSVP cards.

I had the opportunity to design wedding invitations for a personal client which included invitation cards, map cards, and the RSVP cards.

Originally the client asked for every section of the invitation to use different typefaces. We narrowed it down to two: Stylish Calligraphy Demo (cursive font for their names and headings on other cards) paired with Montserrat (body type). I designed and exported for print in Illustrator. The wedding colours were a cool minty blue with gold accents. We wanted to incorporate them into the invitations as well while maintaining readability with mostly black font. For gold foiling details, the printing agents required that the elements be exported in Pantone black and be set as the top layer in the PDF document.

We wanted to bring in the geometric gemstone elements into the wedding map card as well. I designed map markers as little individual gemstones. Originally, the gold was the only accent I used, but the client insisted on having mint elements scattered throughout the invitation pieces so here, I chose to add it to the map. I thought that using the colour on words would affect readability.

The bridal party asked for activity cards for the bridal shower. I designed them similarly to the invitations that the bride originally requested.
