Laser cut wedding invitations ♡

10 Sep

Here are some invitation designs I did for some friends of ours. I was pleased with how they turned out – I love having a play with laser cutting and  it appears to be fast becoming my default wedding invitation style. I find it’s a good way of having a super-posh looking invite without it costing the earth. The only printing on here is on the inserts, so I just had to source the plain card in the right colour to send to the cutters. The inserts were done at a local print shop and I bought the self-adhesive gems from eBay. I think the whole lot came at about £175 for 100 invites and good quality envelopes (excluding design time and hand-finishing) – not a bad price for such a personal and unique invitation, eh?

It’s going to be an autumn wedding. The bridesmaids and the groomsmen’s ties are going to be in blue and they are planning to have lots of pumpkins around for decoration, so the colours should work well I think. Lovely.

Wedding Invites

15 Jun

I designed these wedding invitations recently for my cousin and his fiancée who are getting married in December.

I was really pleased with the results in the end. They are entirely printed using pearlescent card stock and the envelopes are made from lovely textured metallic papers.

The wedding is going to be held at Castle Leslie – a fantastic venue over in Ireland. The brief was for something traditional that would fit in with the castle theme, without it being too stuffy or old fashioned. They also wanted something that would feel quite christmassy due to the time of year the event is being held, which was why I decided to go for the shinier card stock and metallics.

I think the result is simple but classic. The invitations have been hand finished with the gate fold and the black band around the middle.

Clockwise from the top: Invitation with metallic aubergine envelope, Save the Date cards with metallic black envelope and small details card with a link on the back to the wedding website.

There will be Order of Service sheets printed up nearer the time with a gatefold and black band to match and then I guess the design will be continued through onto the table plan and place settings etc.

Lovely 🙂
