Behind The Design: Watercolor Romance Wedding Invitation Suite
Updated: Sep 21, 2020
Our Watercolor Romance Wedding Invitation Suite is an elegant design featuring watercolor brush strokes, a dusty rose and blush color palette and modern calligraphy. We used thermography to elevate the grey ink of the calligraphy headings. While thermography is a costly service, it's a bespoke detail that truly adds luxury. All of our design details for this suite lead back to two concepts: romance and classic elegance. We designed this for the ultimate romantic couple. Combining the soft pink tones with the organic shape of the watercolor splash evokes the romantic vibe we were after. The format and calligraphy typeface brought forward the elegance. Although the vibe of this suite is elegance and romance, the secondary sans serif font and use of negative white space modernizes it for today’s couples.
For this couple's All Aesthetic Plan, we envisioned a stately venue with the décor heavily focused on soft pink florals against the off-white architecture. Typically, the first thing we decide with décor is whether to transform a venue or highlight it. With most estate venues, we choose to highlight the architecture and grounds. The ceremony was out in the gardens of the estate venue, featuring an arch of pink peonies and fluffy roses as the altarpiece. Traditional white or metallic silver Chiavari chairs would be arranged in a semi circular shape surrounding the flower-covered altar. We envision the bridesmaids wearing dusty pink floor length gowns and the groomsmen wearing mid-tone grey suits or tuxedos and blush-toned ties or bowties.
At the reception, the dance floor and the tables were a glossy white acrylic. Our favorite aspect of décor is the tablescape - it’s the most visible for your guests so every little detail can be explored. This couple’s tablescape was dripping with long soft pink, floral arrangements that cascade off the ends of the table, mercury glass votive candle holders and elaborate table settings with silver-rimmed goblets and plate chargers. To bring modernity and contrast the elaborate tablescape, the glossy white table did not have a tablecloth. As for the chairs at the table, we suggested King Louis XVI style chairs upholstered with pink velvety fabric or simple clear ghost chairs, depending on how formal vs. modern the bride preferred. The signage at both the ceremony and the reception matched the design of the invite suite and was framed in large elegant silver frames.
Our focus is always on turning an event into a personalized brand through the stationery, day-of designs, and décor. Each design choice is catered exclusively to you and the happiness you’re celebrating with your guests. We carry the vision and vibe of your event throughout every detail from save the date cards to thank you notes.
