Who doesn’t love receiving a beautiful invite or thank you note in the card? A well considered invite says a whole lot about the event, or the sentiment behind the thank you or note. And while we love luxe cardstock and swoon over a gold foil – first and foremost comes the design. When it came to choosing my own wedding invites, I knew I wanted something that was clean and structured, yet floral and feminine – and I absolutely had to have an envelope liner! Firstly I feel head-first for the ‘Reverence’ collection at Bliss & Bone – the most stunning pressed leaf and perspex invite screened with gold – however, needless to say these fell a little out of the budget! In the end, my lovely friends over at Design Collision worked with me to create my perfect invite – drawing inspiration from some botanical prints I’d found in an old bookstore in Tuscany, Italy. Given we’d eloped and these invites also served as an announcement, they carried our elopement date on the front, along with our new initials to create a monogram, foiled in gold.
