Destination Wedding, Part II: Invitation

Four luxurious layers of cotton and metallic paper, letterpress printed invitation
and custom monogram wrap attaches the invite to the removable pocketed backer.

Individual insert cards inviting guests to each separate wedding weekend event. 

Destination weddings tend to have a lot of extra activities to keep guests occupied while they're away from home. This couple kept their guests busy, offering activities from morning yoga and spa sessions to rafting and mountain hikes, not to mention of course the brunches, cocktail hours and rehearsal dinner. To make sure everyone knew what was going on, this invitation included invitations to each event, plus an activity schedule to keep track of it all.

In my last post about the Save the Date for this event, I mentioned that you want to brand your event by keeping a cohesive visual them throughout the pieces. This invitation repeats the color scheme of the save the date, and introduces their monogram, or wedding logo with elements that will show up on all the pieces to follow. The A's being the bride's and groom's initials with the aspen leaf of course representing their location. The leaf motif was repeated in a casual, natural arrangement on the insert cards, while the text was typeset in a traditional manner to match the invitation.

One stipulation the bride had for this project was that despite needing a pocket to keep all the inserts together, she wanted the invitation to be able to stand alone. So we designed an additional layer with a pocket that when separated from the wrap, left the four-layer invitation intact.
