Today’s wedding, though many moons ago, has a design element that has remained classic and the modern touches our bride wanted don’t seem stale or dated… A mixed color palette, metallic paper, and silver edging added some glam to more classic letterpress designs. Thank you to Liz Banfield for all of the photos.
The save the dates were more of a booklet with a run down of information on Charleston, hotel block info, and a rundown of weekend events. So, we included a “tear off” tab that guests could use to put up on their fridge or in calendar books.
Guest bags were canvas travel shoe bags in the wedding palette with lots of goodies in custom packaging. Custom printed matchbooks were included for the travel sized “Charleston” scented candles for guests to enjoy in their hotel rooms. The Welcome booklets were made to fit the size and shape of the shoe bags and included individual letterpressed cards that guests could carry if needed.
The letterpressed ceremony programs were long and lean – meaning the could double as a fan for the outdoor ceremony. The silver metallic edging gave a more formal feel for the wedding celebration.
The modern touches were translated by using acrylic pieces vs. paper. The menu was etched on clear squares, a wall of prismatic pieces made for really pretty escort cards..And, the couple assigned locations they had traveled together as a couple as the “table numbers”.
Little details throughout the wedding made for thoughtful touches… Decorative signage dotted the cocktail hour passing trays… And, guests received cake in take home boxes with custom stickers- Have Your Cake and Eat it Too!
For the send off, the couple were so fun and guests shot silly string at them. Of course, personalization is one thing we are known for, so we had to cover the cans with custom stickers!
Of course the last view of the couple shouldn’t be without note, we love to try and do something fun with our just married signs.. here, while the sign itself is simple in design, the paper flowers were where we were able to have a little fun…
