The inspiration for this invitation was a Minnesota night, Northern Lights, and stars. My favorite parts are the details of the compass at the bottom, the stylized ampersand behind couple’s names, and the compass overlay background. The watercolor accents at the top and bottom are detailed with stars. This design would work well in a variety of wedding color combinations. I could see doing a purple version of this, rose gold, or hunter green. Since it’s an inspiration project, I went with blues, because they are my favorite color family.
I really enjoy this script font. It looks elegant while still being easy to read. The message of a wedding invitation can get lost in over use of script that’s full of swooshes and curls. You want your wedding invitation to be beautiful artwork, but it’s important to choose a strong, readable font for things like the address and ceremony time. Both fonts have the power to contribute to an invitation looking elegant if you pair them correctly.
This invitation has the power to stand on it’s own with a simple RSVP card, or the background can be carried over into suite of cards, reception place cards, a menu, plus signs at the gift and guest book tables.
If this invitation design fits your wedding style I am able to customize it for you. I can assist you with invitations through my partners at Basic Invite.
