kate + joe | wedding invites

i was so lucky to work with this fun-loving, down-to-earth couple, kate + joe. when kate first came to me and said their bridesmaid dresses are seersucker and her colors are blue and yellow, i was excited to get creative! we came up with a relaxed pocketfold that would hold the reception card and rsvp postcard, while still functioning as the directions card when untied and folded down.

we used two different complimentary blues...
one for the graphics and one for the text.

untying the blue twine bow is one of my favorite parts. i always like to get the guests involved in the invite, whether its a puzzle, asking them to write a note, or simply untying a ribbon, i think it gives the guests a hint of the "playfulness" to your wedding and the fun that is yet to come!

all the elements

we knew what we needed to put on one side of the postcard (the response), but the other side was up for question. i mentioned that it might be cute to do a love story/timeline of their relationship.

they did a lot of traveling during their first few years to see each other so it was fitting to use a map and little planes. i love how the design came out!

here is the full directions card/open pocket.

i had so much fun designing this wedding suite and working with kate! it was a pleasure. i will post all of the fun day-of paper goods after their august 20th wedding. check back soon!
