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.
